Picardie (Picardy) is a delightful, rural region of Northern France, flanked by beaches to the north and charming agricultural regions to the south. This is one of France’s oldest provinces, steeped in history, and blessed with a charmingly laidback, almost timeless atmosphere which will relax visitors to the core.

Things to do in Picardie, France

Food and gastronomy are a very important part of life in Picardie. Tourist information guides are filled with pictures of fois gras and rissoles, and although these are absolutely mouth watering delicacies, the seafood, lamb (raised on salt marshes) and tarts should really not be missed. There are some excellent recipes to try in a Picardie holiday home, but if you would prefer to leave the cooking to the experts while you enjoy a glass of one of the famous local ciders, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.

The amazing historical monuments across Picardie attract thousands of visitors from across Europe. Apparently the birthplace of the nation, Picardie not only has one of the most impressive collections of gothic cathedrals, but also a huge range of important sites to explore, from the fortified cities of Amiens, Abbeville and Peronne to the Battlefields of the Somme. Historical explorations from a Picardie holiday home must take in Amiens, the UNESCO accredited city, filled with wonderful old buildings.

The countryside of Picardie is a delight. With great stretches of beach backed by dramatic cliffs and deep sand dunes, beach lovers will be exceedingly happy living in a Picardie holiday home, and the 4,000 hectares of Lakeland and endless river stretches mean water sports, especially fishing, thrive in the region. Picardie is a maze of walking routes, running through salt marshes, thick forests and wide river mouths around which to walk and cycle. Walking, cycling and riding trail maps are readily available from the Picardie Tourist Information offices.
