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.
We were made very welcome by Sandra and Pascal who were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The gite is amazing - clean and well equipped with outstanding views across the ponds of the Somme river. Great area for exploring the battlefield.
Only concern was the stairs which were steep and difficult to come down. And a kettle would have been welcome to make tea. Would certainly return. Many thanks.
