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!
This is one of the loveliest and most fascinating bays in the world. The Baie de Somme extends over 70 sq.km. from Le Marquenterre headland to Cayeux-sur-Mer. With its superb landscapes, fragile and protected, and entrancing light it has been a 'Grand Site de France' since 2011.
If you want to sample one of the best 'gâteaux battus' (traditional local brioche) in the Somme, then come along to the Boulangerie de Francis (Fréville). He uses his grandfather's recipe - it's a family affair. And Francis' little secret? Using only natural ingredients.
135 hectare park laid out in the 19th century. 138,000 trees, from the nearby forest of Crécy, were planted as part of the whole. Lower down, near the lake crossed by the river Maye, ruins have been reconstructed to form an ancient castle.
The only complete 18th century Cistercian abbey in France. Be sure to visit this gem of Baroque art, an outstanding site, combining monastic simplicity with the world of rococo: the organ case, hanging angels, high altar, drawing rooms with rocaille woodwork will all surprise you.
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.
