Places to Visit Near Somme, France

Amiens

Amiens is the capital of the region and boasts an impressive Gothic Cathedral and some fine stone churches. The huge Cathedral was actually built from the profits of a local plant called "woad" which was valuable for its blue dye. The medieval quarter, St-Leu, is a delightful place to wander on foot with many waterside cottages, restaurants and bars.

Maison Jules Verne

The home of novelist Jules Verne can also be visited in Amiens. This is where he wrote many of his finest works between 1882 and 1900. The exhibition includes some early editions of his novels, sci-fi models and maps from which he created his magical voyages.

Saint-Valery-sur-Somme

St Valery has a superbly maintained historic district and just to the east of the new town centre are the ruins of the old town walls and the prison, which reputedly once held Joan of Arc. There is an interesting 18th century hospital, the old church of St Martin and some charming architecture to be admired in the local buildings.

Weather in Somme, France

The Somme is a great area to choose for a self-catering holiday rental as it enjoys mild winters and pleasant summers. Average daily highs in the summer reach 71°F (22°C) but it can be showery in all seasons.

The nearest airport to your Somme holiday rental will be the Paris - Charles de Gaulle (CDG) International Airport which is approximately 70 miles (115km) from Amiens in the Somme.
