As a writer i saw a lot and visited a lot of places. This one, and the charming village of Hesdin can rate in the top 20. It's being transformed in a St. Germain of the north. with painters and artists working from shops. Wondering how it will look in summer. The place where we stayed has such a huge history, It just breathes it. Kept up the work on my future book behind the open fireplace in the saloon. Just great... This and the amazing view over the river from the terrace, looks a lot like Brugge.
