Make a holiday rental villa or holiday home in Picardie, France your home away from home

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.

Places to visit on holiday to Picardie, France

Many people travel to the Somme region of Picardie to visit the Somme Battlefields, but there is mush more to this beautiful region of France. The many historic towns, excellent fishing and wide beaches mean it is also a particular favourite for family holidays and relaxing breaks across the Channel.

Located in the east of Picardie, the Aisne department consists mainly of wooded covered plains and lush river valleys although there are some mountain regions in the north. Famous for it impressive gothic cathedrals and important World War monuments, Aisne is a firm favourite with British travellers.

Weather in Picardie, France

The weather in Picardie is much like that of southern England. With mild summers peaking in July and August with peak temperatures usually reaching into the mid 20’s (°C), and unpredictable winters, Picardie offers an excellent escape.

Cheap flights to Picardie, France

Being located just across the Channel, travel options are numerous. Paris’ Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport is the closest, but with such good access from the south coast on England to Paris, reaching a Picardie holiday home is easy.

The house was wonderfully rustic, with all amenities catered for so we felt extremely comfortable and at ease. Whilst the weather was a little on the cold side so unable to make full use of the garden, it was still large enough for us to allow the dogs to have a good run around safe in the knowledge that it was nice and secure. There is plenty of information available in the gite on things to do during our stay so at no point were we twiddling our thumbs wondering what to do or where to visit. A special mention needs to go to our host, Jean-Michel, who is a really pleasant chap and incredibly helpful. Not only did he arrange for us to visit the local vets to allow us to re-enter the UK with Pet Passport completed, but when we arrived fairly late on he also recommended a Champagne house just 15 minutes drive away which were still open so that we could enjoy a lovely bottle that evening. On the whole, 5 out of 5 and would definitely recommend it.

Wood-burner in the lounge was great for the cold weather we've just had. Parking outside (be careful about checking which days are free!). Short walk to all the points of interest in town. Boulangerie and a general store just around the corner.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      My wife and I booked the apartment for a week at the end of October as my wife wanted to visit two war graves and the Thiepval memorial on the Somme battlefields and I wanted a break by the seaside. It was a hour and half trip to the apartment from Calais and a hour and a half to the battlefields but compared to the English motorways the French motorways are fast and quiet and we arrived in good time to the apartment on the first night and on other days in good time to get a decent two days visiting the wargraves. The apartment was immaculate with hob - there is no oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and a washing machine in the shower/bathroom. There is a corner media centre in the living area with Satellite TV, a sound system and a DVD player. Not speaking French we didn't use the TV but found lots of DVDs in the unit under the TV we could watch in English to supplement the few we took with us. There is good wifi in the same unit but this has quite a long password so you will have to persevere if you mess it up like we did and don't manage to log in first time. There are bunk beds in the back room if you have kids and two settees one fabric, one leather in the front room. Both settees make into beds and there are blankets and pillows. We had brought our own quilt and pillows and when the fabric bed was made up we found it extremely comfortable and the apartment very quickly became home. You can see the sea from the apartment but it is a couple of minutes drive to the seafront longer if you walk. The beach is sand and gravel and for us as English it was nice to look up at the distinctly French architecture of the houses overlooking the beach. We enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much and are happy to recommend it to anyone.
