A taste of France on the Le Touquet and Montreuil-sur-Mer foodie trail

If you thought that a gastro road trip in France – like the ones you’ve seen on foodie TV shows – looks time-consuming, gas guzzling and challenging to map out, here’s a 4-day itinerary in northern France to persuade you otherwise… an oven-ready break in the most taste-tantalising and super-scenic towns *within just an hour’s drive of Calais* – each chock-full of romantic restaurants, artisan food stores and lively markets all worthy of a celebrity chef’s reportage.

Based in two dazzling destinations, our short break suggestion spends its first two days in our region’s most luxury resort LE TOUQUET brimming with otherworldly seascapes, designer boutiques and even genteel echoes of England… as you’re about to discover. 20 minutes inland, we then whisk you off to Frencher-than-French MONTREUIL-SUR-MER, an old town and exciting microcosm of all the country’s most alluring assets for you to enjoy exploring together.

And based on the maxim ‘Where the locals go, you go’ our edit cherry picks only the very best foodie addresses, not forgetting to pinpoint the most evocative history, architecture, beaches, bike rides and cultural stops to share between meals. On y va – let’s go!
