    A leafy setting tucked between cliffs, a listed picturesque site since 1959. The Bois de Cise is an outstanding site, a little natural wood, originally wild and unoccupied, which became a famous seaside resort in the Belle Époque, thanks to a visionary who used every means at his disposal to achieve this aim. The coastal woodland was originally a wild wood then a place for hunting with hounds in the Middle Ages. In the late 19th century the Bois de Cise was divided into plots and sold by a property developer. It became a famous Belle Époque seaside resort. Today it is a charming holiday destination, best explored on foot along the little paths and sets of wooden steps which run through the site. Very pretty villas bear witness to its heyday before the First World War. Just like Victor Hugo in his time, be sure to go to the panorama, an amazing viewpoint from which you can see the estuary of the Baie de Somme. Unaccompanied and guided tours (on request).
