[WORLDKINGS] Exceptional places around the world (P.70) - Equihen Plage (France) : The village of inverted boat houses

01-10-2020

(WolrdKings.org) Equihen Plage, on the coast of northern France by the English Channel, is a small seaside village with a population of about 3,000. Up until the beginning of the 20th century, Equihen Plage was a fishing village with a dry harbor—the kind where fishing boats were launched into the sea by sliding them on logs. Today, the village is famous for its many inverted boat houses—locally known as “quilles en l'air”—that serve as unique holiday accommodation for travelers.
