Le Crotoy

Le Crotoy :
Jules Verne loved it ! Why sh/w_ouldn't you ?. In the seventeenth century, Le Crotoy was one of the most active fishing ports on the English Channel. This activity, although greatly reduced today, gives Le Crotoy a special atmosphere. Here, traditional fishermen's homes and vacation homes are mixed together.
Jules Verne lived here for several years.
Make sure to pay a visit to :
The harbor at high tide. Jules Verne's house : La solitude. The locks and hunting area. .
