1. French property prices in the pas de Calais have now stabilized & offers (reasonable offers!) are usually invited. Houses are still excellent value compared with their English equivalents. For buyers from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, property is also relatively cheap and very easily accessible by an excellent road network.
  2. The system of buying and selling houses in France is more straightforward than in the UK in particular. Now it is even easier with the help of L'Abri-Tanique. We are an English-owned estate agency (fully licensed in France) that offers a unique friendly, personal bi-lingual service.
  3. We specialise in the Pas-de-Calais region of Northern France. This is the prettiest part of the North and is easily accessible by road and Rail. In fact most of the properties we sell are within one hour's drive of the port of Calais and its Eurostar station which offers direct passenger services from London and Ebbsfleet.
  4. The Pas-de-Calais has numerous pretty farming villages, typically French winding lanes and magnificent towns like St Omer, Arras and Hesdin. There are wooded hillsides and well-stocked trout streams running through seven valleys and you are never far from the Cote d'Opale, miles of sandy beaches and sophisticated sea side towns such as Le Touquet.
  5. L'Abri-Tanique serves French, British and European clients which gives us an intimate knowledge of the local property scene and enables us to bridge the cultures - a skill which is not usually found among French estate agents!
  6. A visit to L'Abri-Tanique Residential can be incorporated with a visit to the historic town of Hesdin, an hour's drive from Calais and 45 minutes from Boulogne. Our offices are situated in a busy corner of the cobbled town of Hesdin with cafes & restaurants and reasonably priced small hotels and chambre d’hotes (bed and breakfast establishments) and thus make an excellent base for your property search.
