Places to Visit Near Somme, France

Amiens

Amiens is the capital of the region and boasts an impressive Gothic Cathedral and some fine stone churches. The huge Cathedral was actually built from the profits of a local plant called "woad" which was valuable for its blue dye. The medieval quarter, St-Leu, is a delightful place to wander on foot with many waterside cottages, restaurants and bars.

Maison Jules Verne

The home of novelist Jules Verne can also be visited in Amiens. This is where he wrote many of his finest works between 1882 and 1900. The exhibition includes some early editions of his novels, sci-fi models and maps from which he created his magical voyages.

Saint-Valery-sur-Somme

St Valery has a superbly maintained historic district and just to the east of the new town centre are the ruins of the old town walls and the prison, which reputedly once held Joan of Arc. There is an interesting 18th century hospital, the old church of St Martin and some charming architecture to be admired in the local buildings.

Weather in Somme, France

The Somme is a great area to choose for a self-catering holiday rental as it enjoys mild winters and pleasant summers. Average daily highs in the summer reach 71°F (22°C) but it can be showery in all seasons.

The nearest airport to your Somme holiday rental will be the Paris - Charles de Gaulle (CDG) International Airport which is approximately 70 miles (115km) from Amiens in the Somme.

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.
