Northern France region
Picardy: Picardy is located in the northern part of France. Picardy stretches from the long sand beaches of the Somme estuary in the west to the vast forests and pastures of the Thiérache in the east and down to the chateaux of Chantilly or Pierrefonds near the Paris Area and vineyards of the border with Champagne (Champagne picarde) to the south. An important agricultural region of France, Picardy has a diverse natural environment consisting of 40 km of coastline, many rivers, marshes and ponds and lakes, forests, and pastures. It is a favorite region of France for hiking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking, sailing, sand yachting and other outdoor activities.
Somme: We are located in the department of Picardy called the Somme, named after the Somme river. The Somme was the site of a series of battles during World War I, and is most noted for the prominent use of trench warfare. Particularly significant was the 1916 Battle of the Somme. As a result of this and other battles fought in the area the department is home to many military cemeteries and several major monuments commemorating the many soldiers from various countries who died on its battlefields, particularly those of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. We are less than 30 minutes (35 km/21 miles) from Cantigny, site of the first American offensive of World War I. One of the largest Chinese cemeteries of WWI is located within 30 minutes.
