Baie Des Phoques

St Valery is about 75 miles from the port of Calais and is easily reached by the A16 motorway.
It is a small seaside town and is named The Bay of Seals. (Baie des Phoques) It is a typically French town and has strong links with Joan of Arc who was imprisoned here in the 15th century. There are many wonderful restaurants specialising in seafood.
There is a market here on Sunday selling everything from clothes to vegetables and pots and pans.
It is an idyllic place to spend a weekend.

    I've always been fascinated by Joan of Arc's saga. Thanks for visiting our Cambridge pages. I was just putting up some new photos there.
