In Nord/Pas-de-Calais there are many small villages and hamlets tucked away. Weekly markets are held in many of the main towns where one can find local produce on sale. The people of this region, eager to share their traditions, are warm and hospitable. The Flemish influence in this region is evident in its architecture, cuisine and the names of its towns.
For beach life you can head for Esch sur alzette or Dunkerque. The water may not be as warm as in the Med, but the sand and the dunes are great. For outdoor activities Olhain offers many different possibilities.
