Having recently visited again, this is a must for an afternoon out. Fantastic handmade chocolates to die for
Tucked away, but definitely worth a trip the chocolate factory at Beussant. Take a look at the website www.choco-france.com
Downstairs by the side of an unassuming bungalow is a wonderful chocolate shop, and then down into the basement where the most amazing aroma greets you. All the chocolates are freshly hand made, and you will definitely want to take some home.
Its about 75 euros for a personal tour, but if you join a group, its a lot less expensive, and you get some to taste as well
There are some wonderful Brocantes coming up in and around Hesdin in the next few weeks..
In August around 8/9/10th is the Hesdin Brocante, anyone who loves a bargain should visit this wonderful French country town.
