Location description from owner
The Hauts-de-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.

Climate: It is characterized by frequent rainfall, moderate winters and summers. Summer temperatures range from a high of 77°F (25°C) during the days to a low of 50°F (10°C) during the night. Winter temperatures reach a high of 55°F (13°C) daytime to a low of 35°F (2°C) at night. Snow is rare.

“Very comfortable house in perfect setting”
We had a wonderful and relaxing break here. The house is lovely and comfortable with all mod cons plus a luxury bathroom. Very pretty gardens and surrounding views and a great sun terrace for al fresco dining. There's a play area and children's pool which our son loved. Very well placed for exploring Picardy and within easy reach of the Somme battlefields. Amiens is a great city with its riverside restaurants and cathedral and a trip to the coast at Le Crotoy also very worthwhile. Owners very kind and hospitable and provided welcome pack on arrival and warm fresh croissants on our first morning! Perfect for families, couples and friends.
Owner's reply: So happy you enjoyed the comforts of our home and garden, and were able to explore Picardy in every direction from our home. Your family is always welcome to return.
Fabulous house, very helpful hosts we will recommend this to anybody. We have two children they enjoy the house and the garden very much, and having the owner near by means you know help is in hand if you need any.
Owner's reply: A pleasure to have your family stay with us, and so glad you all enjoyed your stay. Hope we get to see you again.
“Beautiful and so comfortable!”
This place was perfect for our needs. We had 3 generations in our group an everyone enjoyed the place. It is perfect for children, seniors and all. Celline and Craig helped us with everything that we needed. We truly felt at home in France!
Owner's reply: Wonderful guests and a pleasure to have 3 generations of the same family, Regarding the directions, upon booking we provide a link from which guests can download directions from all main locations leading to our home (Calais, Lille, Reims, Paris, etc.) We now provide GPS coordinates, Google Earth, Google Street views and other information to make your journey to us as smooth as possible. We have even followed a guest on the phone to lead him to us! Our location is no more than one hour from most important WWI sites in Western France, less than an hour from the Atlantic coast, a little more than an hour from Paris, and one hour 30 minutes from WWII sites on the coast. All easily a day trip if you start off early enough! As mentioned, our main attraction is our calm and relaxing environment, particularly for those who need a rest from the stress of travelling.
