RECQUES SUR HEM, A VILLAGE THAT DESERVES TO BE KNOWN

When you think of holidays in the Nord Pas de Calais, you often think of the Opal Coast. And when you think of the Opal Coast, it is almost always Etaples, Saint-Omer or Boulogne-sur-Mer. You have probably never heard of Recques sur Hem. This small village of 600 inhabitants is a real nugget! Located in the regional natural park of the Opal Capes and Marshes, Recques sur Hem is ideally situated. About 20 km from Saint-Omer and less than 30 km from Calais, the village is peaceful with its green spaces and its old monuments. Nature and culture coexist perfectly here.

On the one hand, you will find wooded areas, gentle slopes and a calm river, the Hem. On the other, chapels, churches and old houses are an invitation to escape from time. Recques sur Hem is a permanent journey, from sensation to sensation, from era to era. And if there is one establishment that characterises this spirit, it is without hesitation the Château de Cocove. Now converted into a hotel, it offers comfortable rooms!

THE CASTLE OF COCOVE IN THE SWEETNESS OF RECQUES SUR HEM

The Château de Cocove is now a prestigious 4-star hotel in Recques sur Hem. But above all, it is also a witness to the past and the history of the region. From the 22 rooms and the 3 pavilions, which have been renovated and refurbished in accordance with tradition, you can relive the past splendour of Recques sur Hem.

Dating from the 18th century, this imposing castle is nestled in the heart of a huge natural park of 11 hectares. There is no visible trace of the financial problems of The Château de Cocove at the end of the 18th century or of the German occupation during the Second World War. After the restoration, everything has been left in splendour. Designed by a King's advisor, this remarkable building is also able to coexist with modernity, as evidenced by its wi-fi connection and flat-screen TVs.
