Close to the Opal Coast, the Domaine de La Sapinière is at the heart of a tourist region waiting to be discovered
Country of Art and History, the Country of Saint-Omer is rich in a prestigious historical past of which many witnesses still survive today: from the Gothic architecture of the abbeys to the monumental blockhouses of the 20th century or even treasures from the Sandelin museum, La Motte Castrale to those of churches and abbeys. Located in the village of Wisques near the Benedictine Abbeys, Notre Dame and Saint-Paul Benedictines and the Moniales Abbey, the Domaine de La Sapinière is the ideal starting point for many excursions in the Hauts-de- France.
Barely 4 kilometers from Wizernes, our hotel is close to the 3D Planetarium and the "La Coupole" History and Memory Center in Helfaut, an impressive vestige of the Second World War and the space conquest.
For a family, leisure and sports activities abound in the region: the Trail station and the golf course of the Pays de Lumbres, 10 minutes from Saint-Omer; Les Belles Echappées (original 2CV rides, e-solex, tandems, scooters, Californian bikes and Piaggio Calessino); a fun visit to the Clock Tower to discover the history of the Vikings; the AA Valley Tourist Railway; the Rando-rail ride on the railways from Nielles-les-Bléquin, or the visit of the leisure parks: Laby’Parc, Opalaventure, Dennlys Parc ...
