Property in Picardy

The Picardy region of France sits in the north of the country, and is one of the most underrated regions of France. Most visitors to the country simply miss out the region in a rush to better known destinations. But, anyone who stops to discover it is liable to fall in love with its diverse charms. There are some of the loveliest beaches in France along the Opal Coast, for one thing. Then there's the wealth of heritage, the fabulous forests and chateaux of Chantilly and Compiègne, the rivers, lakes and verdant pastures. Its weather (being only a little warmer and sunnier than England with average temperatures of 24 degrees in August) may not be much to shout about, but the region is a treasure trove of things to do and see. Picardy combines the best of beauty and culture, art and nature.

Explore the natural heritage of Picardy

Picardy may be best known for its war history and battle grounds, but it is resplendent with natural heritage. The lovely cliffs, beaches and wildlife found near the Bay of Somme are simply stunning. The Marquenterre, in the Somme Nature Reserve, is the largest bird park in Europe.
