Hotels in Montreuil Sur Mer

Montreuil Sur Mer with its medieval ramparts and cobbled streets is located in the Pas-de-Calais region of northern France. It sits quietly on the bank of the Canche River, some distance away from the sea, within easy distance of Etaples. This captivating town hides a turbulent past. Once the headquarters of the British Army during the First World War; it later became occupied in the Second World War by the Germans. Brimming with ancient houses, attractive churches and a plentiful supply of restaurants, Montreuil Sur Mer hotels offer the perfect place to relax and savour the local cuisine.

Cultural musts:

The origins of the town date back to the Roman period, when the sea once ventured up the estuary as far as Montreuil. The first ramparts were constructed around the town in the 9th century and have since been altered a number of times in order to protect its citizens from both English and Spanish invasion. The picturesque remains of the 16th century Citadel enclosed within the medieval ramparts, offer a glimpse of seven centuries of military history. There is a permanent exhibition available relating to the First World War and the presence of the British Headquarters in the town. Only two of the five circular towers built within the ramparts remain today, but the walk around the walls continues to offer some spectacular views.

Wander around the beautiful church of Saint-Saulve, with its Romanesque and Gothic architecture. It was built in the 12th century on the site of an old Benedictine Abbey. The Chapelle de Hotel-Dieu and the extraordinary 15th-century gateway that marks the entrance are also worth a close inspection.

Visit the Roger Rodiere Museum now located in the hospital chapel. It houses a fine assortment of archaeological fragments relating to the colourful history of the town. Alternatively, head to the L'Hotel Acary de la Riviere and take time to explore the Musee de I'espoir de Franck et Mary Wooster. Ponder over the collection of 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century furniture and take in the detail of the architecture itself, which dates back to 1810.

After visiting the town in 1837, Victor Hugo eternalised Montreuil in his famous works “Les Miserables”. This ‘Son et Lumière' show is performed every summer at the end of July, early August in homage to his great talent.

Outdoor Activities:

Just 10km from the coast, the town is the perfect springboard from which to explore the surrounding countryside. Hiking is a favourite among many visitors, along with kayaking along the Canche River. There are plenty of castles, churches and mills to discover. Go by foot or cycle to access the many paths in the area. The nearby seaside resort of Le Touquet Paris-Page is less than 20 km away.
