Montreuil-sur-Mer

Montreuil is a fortified market town ringed by ancient walled ramparts looking out over picturesque countryside. Victor Hugo gained inspiration for the character of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables while walking round these ramparts and they remain much as they were when he visited Montreuil.

The town has numerous hotels, bars and restaurants (including a couple of Michelin starred restaurants), a theatre and cinema, specialist wine shops, cheese shops, chocolate makers, antique shops, art galleries, an auctioneer and charcutiers and patissiers to satisfy even the most avid gastronome.

Montreuil has a citadel fortified by Louis XIV’s engineer Vauban, and many historic buildings including St. Saulve, one of the most beautiful Gothic churches in northern France.
