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.

Travel to Somme, France

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.

For those preferring to drive from the UK, take the Channel Tunnel to Calais and follow the A26 to Arras and then the A1 in the direction of Paris. Leave the motorway at Exit 14, Bapaume and head for the Somme.

Brilliant little cottage!

5 of 5
We loved staying for two nights in this lovely and comfortable cottage. It is well equipped and extremely warm thanks to the stove. Thank you Jean- Marc for your welcome and for being there despite our late arrival on Friday evening. We would highly recommend it any time of the year as the courtyard looks welcoming and the parking space is extremely handy considering that the cottage is in the town centre. The only slight drawback is that the staircase is a challenge for less mobile guests. Thank you Sophie for sharing your property.

We stayed here for 5 days in October and it was a perfect place for a restorative break.

4 of 5
We were delighted to arrive at Béalcourt. The house is not large but has plenty of room for 6 people to stay in great comfort. Everything works well and we particularly enjoyed the way it had been decorated and furnished, the sitting room is a real pleasure in which we spent hours enjoying the collection of music CDs available. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and rich in history both recent and medieval, it contains many pleasant towns and villages with good places to eat. We cycled around the area and I would recommend it to anyone who likes riding bicycles, the land undulates so presents gentle challenges without much traffic. We took our 3 teenage children with us and they also enjoyed the stay. We look forward to returning before too long.
