If you are on en route to one of the many car rallies that France plays host to or heading up the coast road to enjoy the Rallye de Touquet then Le Moulin is the perfect pit-stop for you.

Motoring holidays


Many people head to Northern France just because it’s a stepping-stone to some superb car rallies. Le Rallye du Touquet, Pas-de-Calais is a highlight of the year for many car clubs and rally enthusiasts everywhere. The stylish seaside resort of Le Touquet is just 45 minutes away from Le Moulin, and, in spring each year, the town comes to life as it plays host to test car racing. But if you love cars then why just come to France to see other motors in action?

Feeling racy?

When in France, why not take your own car for a spin along the peaceful roads of the Opal Coast. The D940, which takes you from Calais to Boulogne-sur-Mer, has been described as one of France’s best-kept secrets. Many people often hit the auto route A16 which takes them down to Paris. While those in the know opt for this quiet and beautiful route which promises views to the sea, gently rolling countryside and pretty seaside resorts and fishing villages. Stop off along the way for delightful views from the cliff tops at Gris Nez and Blanc Nez. If you happen to do the D940 in a lovely old vintage car then we promise you heaven! And, when you’ve experienced everything that the coast road has to offer then it’s a quick spin (25 minutes) along the D341 to Le Moulin.

Our country hotel has loads of free parking so there is plenty of room for you or your touring club to stay. And, when you’ve parked up, you can finish your day with a traditional French meal in our excellent restaurant with fine wines from our bar. After that, you’ll be ready for deep sleep in our comfy, quiet rooms.
