Seven Valleys in Pas de Calais
Although quite a small area it is diverse, in places flat, in others sloping and even quite steep. Once you turn off the main roads that cut though the countryside you will find yourself in an altogether different world. the undulating wooded valleys and the traditional rural
architecture of the" fermettes" are a visual delight, especially in spring when carpets of wood anemones and bluebells cover the ground of the forests.
Described by one the UKs top newspaper's The Sunday Times' as Northern France's best kept secret, the seven valleys also known as the Artois Valleys with its "rolling contours is a green and bushy as anything you will come across in the Dordogne" with its Opal Coast, charming villages, and historic battlefields including those of Agincourt, Crecy and the First World War the area of the seven valleys offer the visitor a glimpse into the past and a taste of the tranquil French way of life.
