Ok, I am going to start with a couple of possible negatives. There are 54 steps up to the apartment so if you don't travel light you need to be fit and strong. The single bedroom has a damp issue on the ceiling.
Having said this, to wake up to the view over the harbor is wonderful. It is comfortable, clean and tidy with all the basics should you wish to cook. The location at the edge of the town center is excellent which leads to some amazing coastal walks. The local produce of fish, can be sampled at one of the many sea food restaurants. fresh of the boat that day. I will happily stay again
We had a really enjoyable break here with our children aged 4 and 2. There are guards on the windows and balcony but as our children are climbers we had to make sure the windows were closed at all times it is very high up! The apartment was clean and comfortable with great views to watch the boats coming and going. When we managed to phone (had to get assistance from the Tourist Information office) the owners met us within minutes there is parking just outside the apartment. There are lots of great restaurants in Le Treport. serving wonderful seafood. We all enjoyed riding up and down on the funicular and there is also a good play area in Mers-les-Bains for children. We would definitely visit again.

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.
