19th century farm buildings at centre of the village. This is the place to find out about flower growing: annuals, geraniums, chrysanthemums, perennials... Enjoy a tea-time treat based on flowers: marigold petal cake, nasturtium fritters, geranium flavoured madeleines!
Julian has a great stall in the Halles du Beffroi, market hall loved by Amien's foodies, this master cheesemonger is very keen to promote regional cheeses. Be sure to sample (+ take away) the famous Maroilles or one of his creations: Bray with linseed, Tomme with hay,… your friends will be impressed
The battlefield at the Newfoundland memorial gives you a moving and realistic idea of what the fighting must have been like. Three bronze plaques fixed to the base of the mound comprise the national Newfoundland memorial to the missing.
Pippa Darbyshire, originally from England, has chosen to live in Noyelles-sur-Mer... to paint the Baie! Why not stop off at her café/gallery which has become a meeting place for locals and artists? Enjoy a cup of tea (and some of her famous carrot cake) and some gentle banter.
Saint-Valery-sur-Somme is an enchanting medieval town, a haven of peace and quiet where you can stroll along narrow, cobbled streets winding around the church (with 2 naves!) and leading to a little secret garden. Great historical interest combined with a superb view over the Baie from the ramparts!
The Ferme d'Antan is a real traditional farm (built in 1880!), on the model of late 19th century Picardy farms. Children love seeing the animals and taking care of them - horses, cows, rabbits, pigs and goats running free. Try some Picardy games after a pony ride or horse-drawn carriage trip.
