Superb coastlines with long sandy beaches and white cliffs (yes, they have them on the French side of the channel too!) and an array of picturesque seaside resorts make Picardy an ideal holiday destination.
Picardy really is a ‘must’ for history buffs with modern and ancient history at every turn. In particular, there are many memorials, battle sites, cemeteries and museums commemorating the tragic events of the Great War 1914-1918 and we especially recommend a visit to the region’s capital Amiens with its impressive gothic cathedral.
La Bien Assise
Don’t let its closer proximity to the ferry and channel tunnel in Calais fool you, this site has a really rural feel that will make you feel a million miles away from home. Take things easy at La Bien Assise and explore the local countryside and historic towns.
Le Vivier aux Carpes
This pristine site is close to the River Somme and has its own fishing lake making it a fantastic spot for anglers. It is also ideally placed for exploring the many nearby war memorials - the British Cemetery in particular shouldn’t be missed.
Le Clos Cacheleux
When you pitch up at Le Clos Cacheleux campsite you’ll find that peace and quiet is the order of the day. The site is ideally situated for exploring the Somme Valley and the many historic monuments it has to offer, as well as the fascinating Marquenterre bird sanctuary.
Parc des Cygnes
Pitch up at Parc des Cygnes and enjoy the convenience of being situated on the outskirts of a city, accompanied by the peace and quiet of the countryside. Ensure you pop into the cathedral city of Amiens and the WW1 museums in Péronne and Albert are also worth a visit.
