Lovely apartment in lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation. A little out of town but it's a nice bike ride along the river.

Chantel doesn't really speak a word of English so you'll need to brush up on your GCSE French to get by!!

Would definitely recommend

Beautiful location. Warm welcome. Great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We can highly recommend Amiens and the Petit-Marais. It was a great start for 4 of us visiting battlefields and memorials.

The house had all the comforts and as the weather was so hot Chantal brought us fans and a portable air conditioner. But we spent most of our time in the garden which was beautiful and relaxing. The steps up to the top floor flat are steep so wouldn't suit everyone. But we loved it and would recommend it unhesitatingly. Merci Chantal.

Excellent Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for four nights at the end of September, 2017. It was well equipped and comfortable and situated next to an extensive garden with an offshoot of the River Somme on the one side. Excellent location to visit the WW1 sites and Memorials. Small grocery not too far away. Onsite parking is a plus. Close to a bus route to central Amiens which avoids having to find parking when visiting the beautiful Cathedral etc. The owner was very helpful . We managed to communicate despite our limited French and her limited English. Would highly recommend this vacation home.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described and as two couples we had a very pleasant stay. We would happily visit again.

Note that the €200 deposit must be paid in cash, something we overlooked.

Good value

  • 3 of 5

Nice apartment however it was a surprise to find no soap for hands and shower. As a VRBO landlord who provides everything my guests would need, I cannot give high marks for this rental.

Visiting the Hortillonnages in Amiens

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable stay in this 2-bed apartment located on the canal/floating gardens. 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!
