It became known as “Paris by the sea”, and strict building regulations encouraged the most talented architects to create imaginative and innovative developments.Le Touquet and the wealthy BritishIn 1902 Allen Stoneham and John Whitley bought the land, through their company Le Touquet Syndicate Ltd, and were instrumental in developing the town into a golf and gambling resort.
