This lovely three bedroom cottage is set on the banks of the Somme Canal where you can fish (permit required), or watch the canal boats go past. Outside, the cottage enjoys a large well planted private garden, with petanque court, whilst indoors there are spacious bedrooms, each with its own en-suite shower room. There is also a well-equipped kitchen/dining room, and a separate living room with a small sunny terrace overlooking the communal river bank. This famous area of France is steeped in history and there are many excellent museums in nearby Péronne and Albert. The area is famed for its wildlife and fauna including rare orchids found on the nearby Mont Frise. Climb to the top of Mont Frise with a picnic and experience panoramic views across the Somme River and its beautiful lakes. Cyclists will enjoy the 120km of dedicated cycle route alongside the canal from Saint-Quentin to Saint-Valery, or take a more leisurely stroll along the canal banks and see a myriad of wildlife including herons and rare butterflies. The owner, who lives on site, can arrange a private fishing lake for a small daily charge. Nearby cities to visit include Arras with its beautiful architecture and cobbled squares, Amiens for a wander around the impressive Gothic cathedral, or enjoy the restaurants and shopping in Peronne just a short drive away. Shop 13km, restaurant 5km.

    We had an excellent stay at the cottage. It is exceptionally well equipped, with a very pleasant garden and barbeque area. The owners are on site and extremely helpful and welcoming.

    Cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped, owners friendly and speak English, ideal for exploring the war memorials.

    Fantastic. Would 100% recommend. The gite was clean, tidy and well stocked with everything you'd need for a fabulous self catering holiday. Florian, was super helpful and friendly, showed us around the place when we arrived and was on hand if we needed anything, his little dog Jackson was a cutie too, who always welcomed us home after our day trips. This gite is a great base to explore many of the local historical sites and is also equidistant from both Paris and Brugge (1.5hrs - 100% recommend Brugge for the day) if you fancy trotting out further afield. There are no local shops, the Intermarche is a 15 minute drive a way. We are a family of 4, with 2 children. We would definitely return.

    This is a wonderful cottage which is well equipped and comfortable. It has everything you need in a home away from home and the owner is friendly and helpful. The only thing to note is that the nearest town is a few miles away, so no local bakery etc which is a shame. Location for outdoor activities such as cycling or walking with canal so close is excellent. Also close to cities of Arras and Amiens, both have Christmas markets although we found Arras to be the best of the two both worth a visit. We would definitely return to stay here

    A very well equipped and beautifully presented modern gite in a totally peaceful and lovely location. Ideal for Fishing, Cycling (which we did) and walking etc. There was a good size shed to store our bikes, and with some very good map reading (our friends!) we did some lovely bike rides mostly on the flat, and often off-road. We came across some really good restaurants on our cycle rides, and if the weather is not so good, Albert and Peronne are well worth a visit. You will need a car as there are no local facilities, but this is more than made up for by the delightful surrounding countryside and the endless interest of the canal close by.
