For something a little special, take a ten minute detour to Hesdin L’Abbe. Just 10 km from Boulogne is this glamourous and utterly romantic chateau. Built in 1766 in a wooded grove the bourgeois Chateau d’Hesdin L’Abbe residence is now home to Hotel Clery.

Surrounded in a twelve acres of peaceful lush green parkland, all the 27 rooms are distinct sharing only a tasteful elegance, comprising soft lighting and comfy furniture in spacious suites. Some are in the chateau itself and the others are in outlying cottages and farmhouses. The hotel has its own gourmet restaurant and a sitting room where you can repair for coffee or nightcap. There’s also a fitness centre and sauna.
