Location :

In Audresselles, a beautiful fishing village that has retained its characteristic architecture (typical long white houses with a stripe of colour at the bottom of the walls), in the village centre where there are Belle Époque villas facing the ocean. Audresselles is still home to a family of professional fishermen that beaches a dory by the village. Traditional "flobarts", small clinker-built boats, are still used by holidaymakers. Audresselles is surrounded by a protected nature park, perfect for walkers and by the high Slack dunes. The customs officers' path links Wimereux to Cap Blanc-Nez...

Crab is the speciality of the village of Audresselles. You can buy ocean-fresh fish or feast on lobster or a seafood plate...at a local restaurant. You can also join in Audresselle tradition and collect delicious small wild mussels on the rocks opposite or fish for pink shrimp after high tide. And you can watch the seals less than 50 metres from the shore everyday.

Practically speaking, you will be 20 metres from the beach, 100 metres from the shops, the baker's, the grocer's, restaurants and the fish shop where the fish is absolutely fresh.

  • You will be a quarter of an hour by car from the main shopping centres of Coquelles and Boulogne
  • 5 km from the Wimereux golf club
  • 10 km from Wissant and 10 km from Boulogne-sur-Mer
