A week-end or more
Studio rentals at the Régina
They say that Berck-sur-Mer has the saltiest air of the Pas-de-Calais! This delicious haven, bathed in the unique light of the Opal Coast, inspired painters like Eugène Boudin, Edouard Manet and Francis Tattegrain, and is now listed as a City of Art and Culture. It offers endless surprises, from the peaceful Authie Bay, home to colonies of grey and common seals, to the bustling town centre.
If you're looking for an apartment rental in Berck for a week-end or more, the Hôtel Régina's studios offer all the comforts of home. The appealing Partouche casino, located in the old bus station, is just a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The casino is open daily from 10 am to 2 am (4 am on weekends), and features 67 slot machines, black jack tables and Boule 2000. An 8-minute walk from Hôtel Régina, the Musée de France's exhibitions include paintings by the Berck school showing activities like fishermen preparing to put to sea and the fleet setting sail.
Berck, with its rich sea-going past, is home to nearly 90 religious sites. Fishermen and convalescents alike turned to the saints for help in finding fish and regaining their health. Two self-guided tours are available to explore the town's chapels and calvaries, or its cemetery which is now a veritable open-air museum!
If you're game for a longer outing, we recommend walking to the Port de la Madelon, a delightful little port at the mouth of the Authie, a ruggedly romantic area. As you walk along the dunes which stretch from the Authie Bay to Berck, you will come to Groffliers, then Waben.
