Touquet is one of our favourite destinations, and G-IOIA is a regular
visitor during the summer months. It is less than two hours flying time
from Old Sarum.
The resort was created in 1876 by the owner of the Paris newspaper, 'Le Figaro'. Then this was an area of wild sand dunes and forest - part of a hunting estate. It became known as 'Paris by the sea', and strict building regulations encouraged the most talented architects to create imaginative and innovative developments.
The area has a reputation as the most elegant holiday resort of northern France - the playground of wealthy Parisians, with many luxury villas and hotels, and some superb restaurants. There are plenty of facilities including golf, tennis, riding and a wide, sandy beach."
