LIVE NEAR THE TOWN, SEA AND COUNTRYSIDE IN THE HAUTS DE FLANDRE
“And what if the big luxury is all the space on offer?”
Just a stone’s throw from Dunkirk and from the city, you’ll find some great areas, beautiful old homes filled with charm and new, more contemporary buildings with a garden where you can enjoy the gorgeous weather. Give in to temptation!
In the Hauts de Flandre, you can also delight in the fresh produce from the many local producers. It’s all about the exceptional quality of life on offer to you and your family, just 15 minutes from the sea and 40 minutes from the European metropolis of Lille.
REASON No. 1 – A UNIQUE WAY OF LIFE
The Dunkirk region is a close-knit territory. At the same time, however, both close to major metropolises and the coast, the Dunkirk basin benefits from the assets of a large city where you can strike the right balance between quality of personal life and job prospects. Anyone who has taken the leap raves about the quality of life here!
REASON No. 2 – Spacious properties at reasonable prices
Alone, with your partner or the whole family, are you dreaming of an adventure in the near future? The housing stock in the Flanders-Dunkirk area offers you gorgeous properties for prices around 20% less than in neighbouring European cities.
REASON No. 3 – A territory committed to the well-being of its inhabitants
Dunkirk has a long-standing commitment to the well-being of its inhabitants. Free public transport, development of soft mobility with the creation of many bicycle lanes, urban greening… There are tonnes of examples.
REASON No. 4 – ACTIVITIES AND EDUCATION FOR ALL THE FAMILY
The territory of Dunkirk has 250,000 inhabitants and is part of one of the youngest and most densely populated regions in France. Because of the abundance of educational courses provided by local universities, vocational training schools and engineering schools, companies will encounter a pool of expertise here. The territory also provides recruitment and training support programmes.
REASON No. 5 – SUPPORT TO SETTLE IN
Dunkirk has everything you need to feel right at home straight away:
- The Greater Dunkirk Urban Council has set up a service and a website to help families settle in here.
