Visit the 14th-century cathedral or see one of three French copies of the Gutenberg Bible at Saint-Omer’s public library. Meander the streets and squares of this classic market town or venture to the coast to enjoy sweeping dunes and charming seaside villages. The cliffs of Cap Gris-Nez and Cap Blanc-Nez provide striking views of England and cliffs of Dover. Your lucky chateau – which survived the French Revolution and two World Wars – has an ideal location for shopping or working in London, as well as beach going, golfing, hiking, and dining. The A26 is just 10 minutes from your front door, giving you easy access to Lille’s International Airport, Paris and Brussels. It is situated close to Eurostar Calais train station giving access to central London in 55 minutes, and close to Channel ports, and Calais Eurotunnel which connects rapidly to Kent and Southern England.
