Crécy en Ponthieu - historic Somme market town

Crécy en Ponthieu is a small market town that lies amid the historic battlefields of the Somme, in the Picardy region of northern France. Close by is the famous Crécy battlefield, an interesting war museum, and the beautiful Forest of Crécy.

Enough shops to provide daily essentials

The little town has a few good shops, enough for the daily essentials, and some good restaurants serving local specialities as well as a couple of fast food bars. Nearby, in the lovely town of Hesdin, you will find access to more shops and services. On the edge of town is a beautiful forest, perfect for walking and enjoying the marvels of nature.

Learn about Crécy's history

Crécy has a long history, and is most known for its role in the Hundred Years War, when the battle of Crécy was fought just outside the town. You can visit the battlefield and the museum to discover more about the battle. There is also a Second World War airfield to see.

Visit seaside resorts and beautiful Amiens

The Somme is, of course, packed with war history, and the battlefields on which these terrible wars were fought are preserved today for visiting and remembering. There is, however, a lighter side to life in the Somme today, and many wonderful places to visit with happier connotations. Take a trip to the lovely nearby beaches and resorts such as Le Crotoy and Fort Mahon Plage. A day spent in the beautiful city of Amiens, with its famous cathedral, mediaeval quarter and canals, is a day well spent, while a visit to the historic town of Abbeville is also highly recommended. Activities to enjoy include sand yachting, sailing, swimming, fishing, horse-riding and golf.
