A lovely and spacious property with great outdoor space.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Tamaris. It's a really spacious place, with good sized bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. It has a large lawn area and a nice terrace, although the weather largely prohibited us for using it! The outside area is all closed off which is great if you have young children.

It's a short walk to the beach, ten minutes max i would say. The beach is very nice although also very tidal (compared to le touquet) so might be worth checking the times to avoid a big trek to the water and then a frantic dash back as the tide rushes in at certain points! Merlimont itself has a few shops and restaurants, although we came only at the start of the season and the weather was poor so much was closed. If you have young children be aware nothing opens until seven for dinner.

It's a short ten/fifteen drive to le touquet and we spent a fair bit of time here as they started digging up merlimont beach during our stay. Lovely sand, a picturesque drove, and some nice looking bars/restaurants. Much less tidal here.

The weather wasn't good for our stay so we explored some of the area with our children (4 and 2). Can recommend the Marais museum in Etaples (all

About fishing and has some great exhibits - 15 min drive), the aquarium in bologne (45 min drive) and also we went to a theme park in Denlys whose name currently escapes me but it was spacious and clean and had some great rides for smaller children (and a couple of lower league rollercoaster for big ones).

All in all, we had a great time and felt well looked after by Michael, perfect for a place to stop on our way home after Disneyland paris. The only Reason for four rather than five stars is that merlimont is looking a little tired and there was a fair bit of construction work going on which sometimes interrupts the ambience when you are in the town (although not at the house which is very very peaceful). This may be down to our visiting a bit out of season though. Thank you Tamaris!

Maison de vacances idéale!

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes tombés sous le charme de cette location.

C'est la raison pour laquelle nous sommes revenus fêter le Nouvel An, tout comme l'an passé!

Accueil très chaleureux de Michael qui vous met directement à l'aise dans la maison.

La maison dispose de tout le confort nécessaire (3 chambres).

Elle se situe à la fin d'une rue et les dunes se trouvent juste à côté!

La plage de sable est donc tout près.

Il y a tous les commerces de base à 200 mètres (presse, boulangerie, épicerie...) et des bons restos avec accueil sympathique.

La région est extraordinaire: Le Touquet est à 15 minutes (shopping...), Etaples à 15 minutes (noix de St Jacques pêchées le matin-même à acheter au port, ainsi que des poissonneries ouvertes à côté ; l'univers des pêcheurs, Maréis, à découvrir).

Plus au nord: Boulogne (+/- 3/4h): Nausica, très gros complexe marin à découvrir; site des 2 Caps Blanc Nez et Gris Nez (+/- 50 min): superbe vue de la mer.

Conseil: aller du Cap Blanc Nez vers Boulogne par la départementale (petits villages magnifiques).

Plus au sud (3/4h): la Baie de Somme!

Bref, superbe location et superbe situation.

Que demander de plus?

Wonderfull place to relax with family

  • 5 of 5

We stay at the house for almost a week and everything was perfect. Michael has been very friendly and helpfull as from the moment we did the reservation. The house is fully equipped and very cozy and the location is amazing. the dunes are just reachable from the terrasse and the beach is 2 minutes walk. I would definitly recommand this house to any person willing to enjoy a relaxing moment with friends or family. I will probably go back myself :-)

An Indian Summer away.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great holiday in Merlimont plage which is a small & quiet seaside resort only an hour away from Calais. Fantastic beach, huge. You can walk along it to the neighbouring town of Le Touquet and Berck. There are also hiking trails through the sand dunes.

The house was as described on the website. Very clean, neat and tidy with the added bonus of the beds being made up ready for us. The bunk bedroom is rather small, but OK for children. The other two bedrooms are fine and it was great to have both upstairs and downstairs bathrooms and toilets. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and we made much use of the terrace with the glorious September weather.

The TV has a host of English channels and the WiFi internet worked perfectly all week for those of us that had to keep in touch with work!

Michael was most helpful with his “local” knowledge, especially with restaurants and markets. (Everyone enjoyed Montreuil sur mer on the Saturday). He met us with the house keys on the day we arrived and checked up on us once or twice during our stay for which we were grateful.

The town centre is small but has everything you need and you can walk everywhere; it’s all so close. There is a large Carrefour supermarket just outside where you can stock up for the week.

All in all a good time and worth a repeat visit.

Lovely house next to sand dunes

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house next to the sand dunes, fully equipped with everything you need. The house is bright and warm with adjustable radiators in every room. The house has a fast, reliable wifi connection. The house is well situated, literally next to the dunes and a short walk to the beach.

We found Merlimont-Plage to be a quiet town, with a butcher, fishmonger, bakery/patisserie, grocery store and a few restaurants. The beach front has two ice cream shops.

We spent a wonderful holiday here and enjoyed our time in this part of France, visiting many towns along the coast.
