This attractive sailors' district is great for a walk. Crossed by two little parallel streets, it extends as far as the Sailors' Wayside cross with wonderful views over the Baie de Somme. Nicely decked with flowers, the (late 18th century) houses are painted in bright colours - an age-old tradition
These lovely lakes are in fact man-made, dug out by monks from Corbie Abbey, originally to serve as holding pools for fish then for peat diggings in the 19th century. Today the site is a place where everyone can learn more about Nature.
