For buying and selling property in Le Touquet Paris Plage

Le Touquet Paris Plage - fashionable northern resort

The seaside resort of Le Touquet Paris Plage is a distinctly upmarket holiday resort, that has been popular with the elite of both France and England since it was created in the late 19th century. Once nothing more than wild sand dunes and forests, the resort has its roots in 1876, when the owner of the newspaper Le Figaro began to develop it as a weekend destination for rich Parisians. Land was later purchased here by an Englishman who built luxury villas to sell to wealthy English, and as the rich and famous of both countries began to flock to the resort it gained in popularity and reputation.

An expensive charm

Le Touquet Paris Plage has the kind of sophisticated charm that has always been the essence of the Riviera resorts in the south of the country. It was created to appeal to the smart and wealthy sets from London and Paris, and although today it has added more family oriented attractions such as swimming pools and water slide parks, it is still one of the more expensive places to holiday... and certainly to buy property.

Chic shopping

Le Touquet Paris Plage is bursting with the chicest of shops, but you may have to dig deep into your pocket if you want to take advantage of them. These days it is possible to find less expensive fast food outlets in the resort, as Le Touquet has had to move with the times, but the majority of the restaurants and hotels are still very upmarket and pricey... although it has to be said, you do get what you pay for with wonderful gourmet food and luxury surroundings!

Roaring twenties style

The architecture of many of the properties here is very "Roaring Twenties", and this has become retro chic and highly desirable. Many of France's and England's top architects were brought in to design villas, and these types of properties fetch extremely high prices in today's elite market. Unlike some of the fashionable resorts of that era, Le Touquet retains its reputation and popularity and is likely to be busy at any time of year, although the summer months are a clear favourite with most holidaymakers.

Things to do in Le Touquet

Apart from shopping and dining, what can you do in Le Touquet? Everything is available, so what you can do depends mostly on what's in your wallet. The cheaper alternatives include taking advantage of the many campsites that are dotted around on the outskirts of the resort, many of which have great facilities of their own. Of course, if you just want to enjoy the sea and sand then you can have a good day out for very little cash. Those with children in tow may enjoy a trip to the extensive swimming pool and water slide complex, and anyone with a yearning to be James Bond can try their luck in the flashy casinos for which the resort is famed. There is all manner of entertainment laid on in Le Touquet, and the night-life is lively and varied.

Sporting activities galore

The area offers all possible sporting activities too, with golf courses nearby as well as numerous tennis courts, sand yachting and horse-riding. It is easy to forget when speaking of the urban sophistication of the resort that Le Touquet is also an area of great natural beauty, and there are some lovely walks to be found in the pine forests that abut the sand dunes.

Out and about

The beach, the nightlife and the casinos aren't all there is to this part of France, and it is definitely worth taking a car and getting out and about to explore the wider area. The Pas de Calais has many small and delightful old villages to discover, and some truly beautiful countryside too. Arras has a fascinating wartime heritage, while the port town of Calais itself is a bustling and exciting destination... and great for cheaper shopping trips.

How to get there

There are airports with domestic flights near to the resort, but if you want to fly direct from the UK then Paris and Paris Beauvais are probably the best options. Airlines serving these airports include Ryanair, Air France, British Airways, flybe, easyJet, Jet2 and Aer Lingus. The Channel Tunnel is another possibility, as are the ferries with the ports of Calais, Boulogne and Dieppe all very accessible. Road travellers will find the resort from the A16.

Property prices and availability in and around Le Touquet Paris Plage

Many of the properties in the resort are expensive, as you would expect from such a fashionable destination. If you want to be in the heart of Le Touquet you will have to pay the prices, but if you are seeking a cheaper property it is worth looking at neighbouring towns such as Arras and Montreuil, where it is possible to find some real bargains and still have access to Le Touquet.
