A beautiful seaside spot laden with history, Le Crotoy has attracted artists for centuries. Names like Colette, Sisley and Seurat have graced its scenic shores. To this day the place is a magnet for artists and there’s an active informal ‘colony’ of artists that work regularly in the town and open their studios for visitors, just over 40 minutes by car from Le Touquet.
