The property was very clean, well maintained and as described, well equipped with modern appliances and enough storage space for a couple. The lift and the garage were definitely a plus. Its location was ideal, not far from the town centre and the supermarkets. I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

The beds are extremely comfortable. The only drawback for us was that there was no English language TV as it had only French channels. At least we had Wifi.

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!
