Flew Sherburn Le Touquet last Friday. This was my first overseas flight. The preparation for the flight was a little daunting but the actual flight was far more straightforward. Obtained service from Manston and passed to Lille info just after coasting out at Dover. Coasted in at Cap Griz Nez ( shortest water crossing) and then just followed the coast down to Le Touquet. Lille then asked me to freecall Le Touquet Tower. Communication was easy. The controllers could switch between French and Enlish with ease. Staff at the reception were really friendly. Paid the landing fee 25 Euro and arrranged refuelling. No one on Customs. Reception rang a taxi for us for the 10 minute ride into town which cost 10 Euro. Stayed 2 nights at Hotel Windsor near the beach which was a budget hotel and cost about 170 Euros for 2 people for 2 nights including continental breakfast.Hotel was not a palace but was clean and tidy for somewhere to sleep at night. Le Touquet is a lovely place and I wouldnt hesitate recommending it to anyone as a first overseas destination.
