Self Catering Apartments & Holiday Parks in Northern France

Northern France covers two regions - Northern France or "Nord Pas-de-Calais" and Picardy.  Nord Pas-de-Calais lies just over the Channel from England and a hop over the border to Belgium. Picardy is less than 1 hour from Calais - that makes this region a very easy family holiday destination.
The northern France region offers sun, sport, French food, French culture and beaches. There are also many excellent fishing opportunities in the north of France, not to mention plenty of golf courses if you get the chance. For the children there is the theme park Dennlys Park at Dennebroeucq and the region's most visited attraction is the marine world Nausicaa at Boulogne. Other popular destinations are Aqualud at Le Touquet in Northern France just 45 mins from Calais, with both indoor and outdoor water slides, chutes and pools, and Bagatelle theme amusement park at Berck plage.

Things to do on your holiday in northern France

About this region in Northern France: With easy links to the main channel ferry ports and four regional airports, travelling to your holiday destination is quick and easy. Superb beaches, Aqualand waterpark, Nausicaa - the world's largest aquarium and la Cite de la Mer make this a great destination. From fashionable seaside resorts, wonderful walks and rolling countryside to World War 1 battlefields and D-Day beaches, this is a region of contrasts.
Parc Bagatelle, Gunies - Guines has good access to a number of leisure and theme parks, the closest of which is Parc Bagatelle. This site has over 40 attractions including roller coasters, water rides and play areas – there is something for everyone. Dennlys Parc is also close by which is a good theme park for smaller children.
Nausicaã Aquarium, Boulogne-sur-mer - If you are after a city visit then Boulogne-sur-mer, just under 30 km from the parc, offers a wide variety of things to do. It is the home to Nausicaã Aquarium, Europe's largest sea-life centre, as well as an 11th century belfry (a UNESCO Heritage Site) and much more.
Bellewaerde Park - is a bit further away and will take nearly an hour and a half but it is one of the most beautiful parks in Europe, combining wild rides and wild animals (the park combines a nature reserve and an amusement park)!
Boulogne-sur-Mer Capécure - Something fishy going on? Boulogne-sur-Mer is the largest fishing port in France and the Chamber of Commerce organise guided tours of the Capécure where fish is auctioned, frozen, salted and smoked.
Le Touquet - is a historically fashionable town just over 60 km from the parc. From kite surfing to local markets, this town has a lot to offer and will have everyone in high spirits.
Aqualud Waterpark - If you are looking to make a splash then Aqualud Waterpark has over 2000m of slides and chutes, and even a water cannon to fire people into the pool! Or if swinging through the trees is more your thing then try Passion d'Aventure high ropes course.
Amiens - is the capital of the Somme department in Picardy. It is home to the largest cathedral in France – the Cathedrale de Notre Dame. Amiens has beautiful flower-lined canals; it is beautiful, town not to be missed.
