We stayed in Boulogne in October in an apartment close to this bar. Owner was very helpful and friendly to us as our French is not very good. Bar is very cosy and everyone was so welcoming.

This is a small wine bar inside the old village walls of the haute village of Boulogne sur mer and has a great atmosphere. Fantastic place to come for a drink. This is a very small establishment.

This is a real find. It is a lovely tiny bar in the old town. Very relaxed with tables on the pavement. The owner is very helpful and has great English. I thoroughly recommend it.
