*****

Picardy: Picardy is located in the northern part of France. Picardy stretches from the long sand beaches of the Somme estuary in the west to the vast forests and pastures of the Thiérache in the east and down to the chateaux of Chantilly or Pierrefonds near the Paris Area and vineyards of the border with Champagne (Champagne picarde) to the south. An important agricultural region of France, Picardy has a diverse natural environment consisting of 40 km of coastline, many rivers, marshes and ponds and lakes, forests, and pastures. It is a favorite region of France for hiking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking, sailing, sand yachting and other outdoor activities.

Somme: We are located in the department of Picardy called the Somme, named after the Somme river. The Somme was the site of a series of battles during World War I, and is most noted for the prominent use of trench warfare. Particularly significant was the 1916 Battle of the Somme. As a result of this and other battles fought in the area the department is home to many military cemeteries and several major monuments commemorating the many soldiers from various countries who died on its battlefields, particularly those of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. We are less than 30 minutes (35 km/21 miles) from Cantigny, site of the first American offensive of World War I. One of the largest Chinese cemeteries of WWI is located within 30 minutes.

Village of Fossemanant: Rural village with less than 100 inhabitants, only two short streets converge on a small medieval church. A few residents still farm, cows and horses are commonly found grazing in the surrounding fields!

Lovely home with friendly, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Céline and Craig's home was wonderful, beyond our expectations! It is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The yards and countryside are lovely. We met Craig upon arrival, who welcomed us and showed us around, and we met Céline a little later when she dropped by and introduced herself. They are a great couple, both friendly and helpful. The Welcome basket was very thoughtful and delicious.

Craig was easy going with recommendations for eating and directions when we needed them. We had a great time! I would happily recommend their property to family and friends. Thanks for eveything.

Couldn't ask for a better stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect stay with perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Craig and his wife Celine are excellent hosts and they could not have done anymore for us during our stay if they tried. The house was spotless, beautiful and full of personal touches which make the house the gem that it is. On the second night of our stay the family cooked dinner for us and we had a lovely evening sat around the table sharing stories. The house is equipped with every modern, high tech appliance that you could wish for and the beds are like sleeping on clouds! Thank you Craig and Celine for your hospitality and I will definitely stay again with you in the future.
