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.

The property has a beautiful garden (shared with the owner) and it is very quiet -located at the end of a cul-de-sac. Electricity is included in the price. Only extra cost is sheets and towels if required. Chantal , the owner lives adjoining the property and was very helpful even though she did not speak any English, this was not a problem. Amiens Cathedral is beautiful and there is an excellent tourist information and visitor centre next to it where we got an free guide showing all the Somme sites with coordinates which made locating them with a sat nav very easy. Floor runs off the level as I believe is common in many French properties, this was not an issue for us.Would definitely recommend.

Great value for money and nearby laon is a good place to visit for restaurants and bars. The owner was extremely helpful and the lady who met us to give the keys was lovely and friendly. Great place for families or groups of friends. Thank you very much

The place is spread out over 3 floors, with very subtle 'mood' lighting in the main areas. The stairs may make it difficult for anybody with mobility issues, but gave us some exercise. The Jacuzzi was a real treat at the end of a busy day, allowing us to relax and see the stars above - surrounded by the trees of the forest. A pretty special place, and perfect for our Silver Wedding Anniversary.
