Reasons for trip


We were on our way (myself, my husband and two friends) overland by car and ferry to our home on Fuerteventura, Canary Islands.

The ferry crossing Dover Calais with P&O was smooth and we soon found ourselves on the roads of Northern France heading for our first stop at Le Crotoy at Hotel de la La Baie Somme at 16 Quai de l’Amiral Courbet which is situated on the edge of the Baie with nice open views. If you stop here,ask for a room which looks over the Baie The.cost for 2 rooms for one night was €170 which includes 7% VAT. Breakfast was €9 per person. Public parking is available in front of the Hotel which costs the princely sum of €2. The thing to watch here is that the parking is not available on market day which is Tuesday. The parking was not secure but we felt happy to leave the car there as the parking place is immediately in front of the hotel. We took out things of value of course. Wi-fi is available in all areas and is free of charge.

Total cost was €218 which included the breakfasts bar drinks and local taxes. This worked out at €55 per person which we thought was good value. Friendly staff, clean environment and comfortable rooms.

The hotel does not serve evening meals but there is a good choice of restaurants many of which serve ‘moules’ mussel dishes- moules marinieres being a favourite with many visitors.

As a group of four we had mixed food tastes so we had to find a restaurant which catered for all of us. We chose Le P’tit Ridin Place Jean D’arc where 4 dined for €73.60 including drinks (wine €2.50) beers €3.60. €18 per person. None of the group is a big eater so we didn’t have starters but went for the crème brule at 5.50 to finish off our meal. We ordered mijotte( a slow cooked stew), saumonette (sea trout), (saucisses frites) sausages and chips.This was a bitt disappointing as we expected to see a big chunky French sausage but it was in fact frankfurters out of a tin!. ‘Salade classique’ for me the vegetarian was very good. My husband had the 'moules' which most people were tucking into.

The next day after a pleasant breakfast in the light and airy breakfast room we set off for our next stop over which was scheduled for Le Lude. Read more.
