- overnight trip to Calais….what to do?
Just use the Formule1 in Coquelles. It’s cheap, next to a couple of wine warehouse type places. The Bleriot bar further along (in the shopping centre) looks nowty but does great food and beer (if you like moules, leffe and steak). The village is pretty dead but pretty and near the coast. The “hotel” costs about 30 euros for the night and has a bed. Only about 10 minutes from the eurotunnel.Posted 4 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
Head around the coast to Wimereux. The Hotel Atlantic is nice, and really good food.
Went there for my wife’s 21st many years ago, and also for her mum’s 60th.
Area around there is suprisingly similar to the South Downs.
Also, for booze, find a smaller independant shop out of Calais. Much friendlier on the whole, chance for wine-tasting etc. Sadly the one I would recomend closed a few years ago.Posted 4 years agoatlazMember
If you don’t mind a slight drive, go to Belgium. There’s a lovely restaurant in Watouplein called t’Hommelhof where most dishes are cooked with beer. There is also a fantastic beer seller in Poperinge with hundreds of different types. Otherwise Boulogne or Le Touquet. There’s just no reason for Calais. Even the French don’t want to hang out there.Posted 4 years ago
