Geography[edit]

Longvilliers is situated 5 miles (9 km) north of Montreuil-sur-Mer on the D146 road and in the Dordonne river valley. With a population of little over 250, it retains the character and atmosphere of the French countryside. There are no shops, but it is near enough to Frencq (5 km), Montreuil-sur-Mer (9 km) and Étaples (10 km). The area around offers stunning views and walks into the rolling countryside.
