Crécy forest : for a walk in a peaceful place

  • 4000 hectares
  • 20remarkable trees
  • 8pedestrian loops

Immersion in the forest  

The silence feels good! 

The wood is a quiet and peaceful area. It’s a place where we can relax and breathe. We are waiting for you in the largest forest in the Somme: in Crécy-en-Ponthieu, near the sea. 

We soak up the smell of humus, moss and fern, we breathe deeply! Beech and oak are the kings of wood.

We feel the energy and nature’s positive waves pass from the roots of trees to the roots of our hair. We love the rustling of leaves in the trees and branches creaking under our feet.

Senses are blooming, disconnection can begin!

The scene of the Hundred Years' War 

Page of history 

The Crécy Forest is also an emblematic place of history. In 1346, the French army of Philippe VI de Valois bowed before the King of England’s troops. So the Hundred Years' War began. 

Stop to the wooden tower. That's the belvedere where Edouard III observed the surronding area. 

Advice : Visit the tourist office before to go. They will give you a map with few details and a list of remarkable trees.

Sleep at the edge of woods  

La Roulotte des Ramolleux

It's possible with Dominique and Jean-Claude in the Fermette des Ramolleux at the edge of Crécy forest.

For a total immersion, we choose to spend the night in the caravan.

A small key is hung inside, it opens the doors to the kingdom of greenery. Take the opportunity to discover this famous Ramolleux oak tree next door, 600 years old!
