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.

                                                            Céline and Craig were outstanding hosts. They are very accommodating and go above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need. They create one of the best atmospheres I've ever stayed at. The facilities are phenominal and very clean. The whole apartment is brand new and of very high quality. This is a place you don't want to miss out on if you are ever in the Amiens area. It is a beautiful property and very relaxing, I would recommend it for any age group.

                                                            Beautiful Holiday home, thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and furnished. As a family of six, including two children, this house had all the space we needed, all mod cons and home comforts. Set in a beautiful area with great options in all directions to explore. The house was clean and tidy and with all bed linen and towels provided it made it very easy to just settle in. Owner was very helpful and gave us a tour of the house on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks Phillipe we had a great time!
