It is a region proud of its traditions where fairs, fetes, markets and festivities are part of everyday life. Steeped in history, discover the rich heritage of the regions monuments, museums and historic sites dating from the Roman times to the last World Wars.

Lens is a newly opened Louvre gallery (annexe of the Paris Louvre)
La Baie de La Somme bordered on each side by the contrasting resorts of Saint Valery and Le Crotoy. Take a boat ride to see the seals and glorious views across the bay or a steam train ride round the bay or the three hour guided walk across the bay for the more adventurous.

Amiens famous for its Gothic cathedral, claimed to be the biggest in Europe. The waterfront area is particularly attractive with its large selection of bars and restaurants alongside the Somme.

"More than welcoming stay"
The owners were very welcoming, greeting us on our arrival. The wine. cheese and bread was a lovely welcoming gift (and nice to settle down to after a long drive!).
The kids loved the pool which was maintained perfectly. The Granary is approx 30 mins to the Opal Coast where we visited Le Touquet and is a very well kept beach and a nice little town to visit. Otherwise approx 1hr drive to the Somme battlefields which we visited Albert (museum made from underground tunnels) and the Canadian memorial in Beaumont-Hamel (battlefield of the 1st day of the Battle of the Somme), very humble place with trenches which captured the kids imaginations. We also visited Nausicaa (a very good aquarium 1hr back up towards Calais in Boulogne). We need to return just to visit the many sites that are around the area!
We've not even mentioned the games room that Geoff has created in the barn - perfect for when the weather wasn't on our side! Not only that but the extensive DVD collection that they have available more than kept the kids quiet during the evenings!
All in all we could not recommend the Granary and Geoff and Irene enough; a fantastic "shabby chic" place to stay; Geoff and Irene are a lovely couple who could not do enough for us during our stay.

"Everything you could ask for in a family gite"
I had spotted The Granary after trawling through many sites and pages , it stood out due its pretty appearance , great pool , games room , spacious garden and only an hour from the Eurotunnel .This was our first trip abroad as a family and first time in France so everything from the language , driving on the right and the way of life was new to us !
We were not dissapointed ....it is a gorgeous place with everything you need for a family .
The games room is great ...pool table, ping pong , darts and indoor and outdoor toys , a swing set , pool , gas bbq and a lovely wood burning stove if the evenings are chilly ! There is Sky tv and a HUGE dvd selection available too for chill times !!
Irene and Geoff live on site, and are really friendly but in no way invasive and it feels very private .They were so helpful with directions , tips for where to shop and the way of life etc to us novice travellers !
The area is so pretty and unspoilt with so much to do and see , we couldnt fit it all in, in a week.
so we will definitely be back and and staying in 'The Granary 'will feel like a home from home !!
