The village of Boufflers is approximately an hour away from Boulogne. Dieppe and Calais are just over an hour away, via excellent motorways. The superb "Côte d’Opale" is about 30 minutes away, where you’ll discover wide sandy beaches and fishing villages with fish stalls and fish restaurants all along the coast.
Boufflers is situated between the two market towns of Auxi-le-Château and Crécy-en-Ponthieu. To the north is the larger town of Hesdin, to the south is Abbeville - and the beautiful city of Amiens, with its canals and cathedral, is less than an hour away. Paris can be visited easily in a day, as can the Belgian capital of Brussels.
The area around Boufflers is very tranquil, with the mediaeval battlefields of Crécy and Agincourt not far away. Historic sites from the two world wars - including the battlefields of the Somme and the Menin Gate memorial - are an easy drive away.
Sporting activities, such as canoeing and horse riding, are available locally and there are several excellent golf courses nearby. In spring, the beach at Berck hosts an annual kite-flying competition - and sand yachting is possible all year round. If all this sounds too energetic, we recommend a visit to the local bird sanctuaries or a walk through the fields or down to the river.

A little history...
The origins of Boufflers can be traced back to prehistoric times following the discovery of prehistoric relics in the area.

Towards the end of the 15th century, Maréchal de Lohéac captured Boufflers' château and completely destroyed it. A new château was subsequently built on the original foundations.
