Picardie is perhaps most famous for its battlefields from World War I and World War II, including the Somme. The region is now home to a number of old-fashioned towns and charming resorts such as Chantilly - perfect for a quiet break in the north of France. If it’s a relaxing holiday you’re after, this is certainly the place for you.
The incredibly picturesque region is littered with numerous historic monuments and attractions like the Thiepval Memorial, as well as castles and cathedrals such as Beauvais Cathedral that date back thousands of years. The culture of the region is kept alive with many music festivals and film exhibitions.
The unspoilt Picardie coastline is one of the most beautiful places in France and has seen little development over the years, so its definitely worth a visit. Anyone who wants to get a bit more active during their trip here is in for a real treat with a number of leisure parks to pick from. Choose from a range of water sports, cycling and horse riding, as well as some of the best golf courses in the country.
