Montreuil sur Mer, France 

Self Catering Montreuil sur Mer Holiday Homes Cottages and Gites 

Montreuil-sur-Mer is found in the Pas-de-Calais department of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in northern France. It is located on the Canche river, not far from Étaples; it’s actually 10 miles inland from the sea. When you rent a Montreuil sur Mer Holiday Home, you’ll discover a charming walled town with beautiful old houses and churches, imposing ramparts and cobbled streets.

Standing proud on a hill, when you rent self catering accommodation in Montreuil sur Mer, it won’t be a surprise to discover that these very streets proved to be the evocative setting where Victor Hugo based part of Les Misérables.  Every year it is performed in an outdoor ‘son et lumière’ at the end of July and beginning of August.

There are two museums to visit when you stay in Montreuil sur Mer.  The Roger Rodière Museum in the 18th century hospital chapel has a collection of archaeological pieces which register the history of the town.  The Hotel Acary has the ‘Musée de l’espoir de Franck et Mary Wooster’ in a property which Madame Wooster left to the commune on her death.  There is a collection of furniture dating from the 18th–20th centuries.  From the ramparts there are wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

When you stay in a holiday cottage in Montreuil sur Mer do visit the 11th century Abbey of Saint-Saulve. The Abbey is significant for its blend of Romanesque and gothic architecture which form one of the most beautiful ensembles of northern France.  In the same square is the Chapelle de l’Hotel-Dieu, founded in 1200 by Gauthier de Maintenay and which retained its function as part of the hospital until 1992.  Reconstructed under Napoleon the Third, this was followed by a restoration by Clovis Normand which only retained the flamboyant gateway of the 15th century. 

To get to your Montreuil su Mer holiday Accommodation: Montreuil-sur-Mer is easily reached via ferry from Dover to Calais which takes about 90 minutes (Sea France, P.O).  Montreuil-sur-Mer is about one hour from Calais by car. Flights to nearby Le Touquet are available from Lydd Air who fly from Lydd airport near Ashford in Kent.  Alternatively if travelling to France via Eurotunnel then Montreuil-sur-Mer is an approximate 50 minute drive.

Nord Pas de Calais is renowned for its cool temperatures all year long especially during winter months, and its pleasant weather in summer. The Nord Pas de Calais region of France benefits from 1,600.3 sunshine hours a year. The climate is continental which gives it a pleasant sweetness throughout the year. There are never extreme temperatures in this French region.
