Le Touquet-Paris-Plage

Towns & Cities in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, FR

Over the first half of the 20th century, Le Touquet evolved from a wild coast on the North Sea to the most fashionable resort in northern France, a result of British investment and property development. Between the WWI and WWII, its gambling, golfing and modern architecture attracted the rich and fashionable. The preeminent architect was Louis Quetelart whose characteristic style - " Art Deco has tea with Clarice Cliff in a mock Tudor cottage"- has experienced a massive revival in recent decades.
