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.

What a find, home from home. A wonderful place to stay!

5 of 5
Five of us stayed in Sylvie's home and it proved to be the best place to call home during our tour of the Champagne region. Plenty of room for all of us, the house is charming, peaceful, and well equipped. We were lucky enough to have a hot and sunny day on the Friday and we made the most of the beautiful garden and BBQ facilities. Musn't forget the wonderful Danielle who looked after us as Sylvie was away. Although we don't speak much French and Danielle no Engish, we all made ourselves understood and enjoyed an informative tasting of Sylvies lovely champagne. I could go on about this property, but will finish off by saying that all of us thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and weren't ready to leave at the end of our stay. A repeat visit is a must and soon.

Pleasant and welcoming stay in a French Gite

5 of 5
The owners were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. Kitchen has everything you need. Use TripAdvisor to make your stay even better. Saint Quentin, Paris and Laon were our favourite days out. This property is highly recommended as a base to explore the north of France.
