The village is pretty and very relaxed. The beach and cliffs are spectacular and you are near some really good places to visit. I would highly recommend to anyone. The hosts are also very good and would do anything to help you and make your stay more enjoyable.

Ideally situated slightly away from the main Quend Plage beach it is only a short walk through the dunes to a fabulous and huge sandy beach which disappears out of sight in both directions. It is also dog friendly and early morning and evening walks were a delight. The house was spotlessand is modern and fully equipped, comfortable seating, TV and DVD player, plus an excellent fully equipped kitchen. Out side (which is the front) a patio table plus the use of 4 deck chairs and a BBQ. M & Mme Brico were very friendly and explained everything, we had to apologise for our poor French! The weather was amazing rising to 36C on the Wednesday which frankly is too hot!!. Plenty to see in the Somme area although the heat did actually curtail too much walking - our dog went on strike. Found some good restaurants all over the Baie de Somme area. Would I recommend it? Without hesitation! One note worth mentioning, the stairs are steep, they would be difficult for children, the infirm or the elderly. A baby gate is provided however.
