Golf: The apartment is very close to the famous Golf du Touquet, consisting of two courses, La Forêt & La Mer. These are both excellent lcourses but the golfers amongst us strongly recommend the two courses at Hardelot, Le Dunes and Le Pins, or for an extra special treat, La Belle Dune at Fort Mahon Plage (25 mins away), which is one of the top ten courses in France. A trip to St. Omer is also well worth the effort!
