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.

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.

The car parking facility was very useful, particularly as car parking in the town was all Pay & Display. Our reservations are not with the owner or accommodation but with HomeAway as we found it one way communication, there appeared no way in obtaining information from yourselves. Prior to our holiday we found it quite stressful being referred to Apps that we were not familiar with. As far as we were concerned suggesting that there was two way communication was a joke!

                                                                                            4 of 5

Such a beautiful setting but unfortunately the weather was not great for us to take advantage of the lovely garden area attached to this property. The apartment was as described and very clean. Small but good shower in the bathroom. Free parking was available during our stay and it was an ideal location for us visiting the Somme Battlefields.. Enjoyed about a 40 mins walk along the towpath/canals into Amiens. Chantal was a pleasant hostess despite our language barrier! Small point to note is that bed linen and towels are not included in the reservation, but you can ask Chantal for an option pack (paying up to 15 euros). Perhaps Chantal should make reference to this on the website for future visitors. However, highly recommend this property. Again, thank you Chantal for accommodating us!
