Within only 1.5 hours drive from Calais, this was an ideal base for a family with active teenagers as there was plenty to do and see. We loved the funicular railway, the amazing view from the top of the cliff and the narrow streets of fishermen's houses. Just relaxing in the flat, we enjoyed watching the fishing boats coming and going. In the same street near the flat was the best choice of ice creams in the whole area, plus many restaurants. We also enjoyed mini-golf and a dip in the sea at Mers-les-Bains. You could buy all the basic necessities from the small shop below which was open til late in the evenings. This was definitely one of the best holidays we have ever had!
We enjoyed our stay here especially being able to just sit and watch the fishing boats arrive and depart. Good, reasonably priced restaurants nearby. Take a trip on the furnicular for the great view from the top-it's free!! We stayed for a long weekend over the May Bank Holiday so also visited Dieppe and the Chateau in nearby Eu.
Just be aware that the apartment is on the 3rd floor so perhaps not best suited to those less able.
Once we had located the property we had a lovely relaxing week. Satnav initially took us too far down the street and our hosts were very patient in helping to guide us to the correct address.The property is between the Casino supermarket and a chocolate shop.
It was warm and comfortable and well equipped, quiet, located near to shops and restaurants and with lovely views of the harbour and beyond. Parking outside was easy and convenient during the week, there is a charge at weekends. I have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to others.

The apartments location is shown incorrectly on some sites - its by the lock gates overlooking the main harbour.
Pleasant and comfortable apartment, within the main restaurant area of town.
The great market is just across the road, the fish market just along the quayside.
The main room is more spacious than shown the photos. It was pleasant to have our birthday lunch on fresh seafood, while watching the fishing boats use the harbour.
Wide selection of wine in nearby
Alcan supermarket, 5min drive.
Owner very helpful. Will stay again.
Contact with the owner by email was efficient and quick. Apartment has a great view of the harbour and sea front. Everything within easy walking distance ie shops & restaurants.
