The gite is very well equipped, spacious, stylishly furnished and decorated and spotlessly clean. The only downside for us was the staircase which was steep and awkward and the shower room and w.c. are downstairs.
Pascal and Sandra are excellent hosts - very kind, helpful and welcoming. The parking is convenient and secure, the garden very pleasant to sit in and the views over the water lovely.
Spotlessly clean and well equipped. The apartment is ideal for a couple and we were really comfortable here. As previous reviews indicate, the train tracks are just at the bottom of the garden and trains pass regularly but it didn't bother us even though we slept with the windows open. We received a warm welcome from Chantal and Vivienne and, despite the fact that they do not speak any English, we had many conversations helped by gestures and facial expressions - hilarious!
Make sure you read the booking information carefully - sheets and towels are not included. We had requested these extras and everything was ready and waiting when we arrived.
The Cathedral is impressive and the hortillonages are well worth a visit. Albert is a pretty town with the Somme museum in the centre. The war graves and memorials are a sobering reminder of the price paid for our freedom. The Australian memorial has a superb interactive display that we'd recommend.
We stayed for a week and feel we've done most of what Amiens has to offer. We'd definitely stay in this apartment again for a couple of days en route to somewhere else.
