Where to stay near Calais France

We are going to France at the end of April and want to spend several days in the area around Calais but not necessarily in Calais. does anyone have a suggestion. We don't want to spend more than $100.00 American dollars. Does anyone know what the weather is like in late April?

You might like to explore the valley of the Aa (Aa is the name of the local river) and its little tourist train (www.tourisme-saintomer.com/vis-spo-ch.htm) if you are there at the right time near St Omer.

A bit further afield, there's Hesdin and the valley of the river Canche (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hesdin) which may have less foreign visitors than St Omer.

Also a bit further away is Cassel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassel,_Nord) where you'll start to see Flemish influences, and the Mont des Cats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godewaersvelde) nothing to do with our four-pawed friends (!!) which is a bit different.

Oh and as you are driving, please make sure that your car has the following obligatory safety items:-

one hi-vis jacket

a warning triangle

spare fuses and bulbs

and a BREATHALYSER kit ... unused and in date (ethylotest in French)
