Offering bi-lingual services in the town of Hesdin, in the Hauts-de-France region. A quality business with nearly thirty years of service to international buyers & sellers. We will take you through the whole buying process from initial search to final completion of sale. Part of our dedication is that we will support you through setting up bank accounts and ensure that you are connected to all the relevant services providers (electric, phone etc).

L’Abri-Tanique serves French, British and European clients which gives us an intimate knowledge of the local property scene, enabling us to bridge the cultures – a skill which is not usually found among French estate agents!

Specialising in the Pas-de-Calais region of Northern France, most of the properties we sold are within one hour’s drive of the port of Calais and its Eurostar station which offers direct passenger services from London and Ebbsfleet – and, of course, the shuttle from Folkestone.

Discover the North of France

Most visitors rush across the North of France without a sideways glance at the numerous pretty farming villages and magnificent towns of St Omer, Hesdin and Arras.

Stop a minute and you will discover one of France’s best kept secrets – a region full of hidden treasures with wooded hillsides and well-stocked trout streams running through the seven deep, lush valleys.

The Seven Valleys is a charming area with a wealth of restaurants and vibrant markets.

Local Amenities

Hesdin’s town square becomes a bustling market place every Thursday morning where you can sample some of the local delicacies and fresh produce and includes a well-stocked fish market and local cheese producers. The stunning town hall on the main square, with its elegant belfry, is now a UNESCO heritage site.

The town hall

Hesdin has plenty of excellent restaurants and reasonably priced small hotels, gîtes and chambres d’hôtes and thus makes an excellent base for your property search.

Things to do

Walk through the forests, picnic amidst wild flowers and abundance of oak, sycamore and maple trees in Hesdin forest, which is around 2500 acres. Great for ramblers and bike rides.

We have seven fantastic golf courses, canoeing, sand yachting and horse riding all within easy access.
