The history starts in 1819, the 1600 hectares of the wild rabbits of Tripod, hamlet of Cucq are regards in 1827, and sold in 1837 Sirs Jean Baptiste Alphonse Daloz and Alyon has. The former notary Mr. Jean Baptiste Alphonse Daloz wanted to devote himself to the breeding and agriculture. Alas, all this experiment will show a failure.

In 1855, we find Mr. Daloz who transforms the field into drill. The six guards (more their family) assign to the two headlights, inaugurate in 1852, live the field of Touquet then.

In 1874, the founder of the newspaper Le Figaro (Hippolyte de Villemessant), invites by Mr. Daloz, persuades it to found a seaside resort which would have as a name: Paris-beach.

In 1894, one does not count less than 173 constructions etcmais only 300 inhabitants at the year. John Whitley and his will to make Paris-Beach the first Franco-English spring will make evolve/move the things with the assistance of Allen Stoneham. The ambitious project to create a seaside resort of luxury consacree to the sports takes form.
