Hardelot Centre

The Hardelot Centre is a residential centre that offers accommodation, activities and trips for groups of young people and adults.

Whether you are a school, a youth group or looking for a trip to France we will have something to offer you. We believe that your whole stay is a complete experience and try to make you part of our family.

A member of our team is on site 24 hours a day 7 days a week to help you in any way they can.


Situated on the breath taking Opal coastline, the Hardelot Centre is an excellent opportunity for you to experience France, its culture and the language. Around every corner of its surroundings you will find many surprises from a fabulous expanse of sandy beaches to bustling towns.

The centre is based 40 to 50 minutes from Calais and is set in 8 acres of woodland with plenty of on-site facilities. The beach is 2 kilometres away with local visitor attractions nearby. The local staff can provide home-made French cooking and the chance to try out your French conversation skills.


Either choose your own activities while you are here or let us provide the itinerary for you. With strong links with local French schools and organisations including the Conseil Départmental du Pas de Calais, we have everything you need for the perfect stay.
