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.

Enjoy the outdoors from your Picardy property

When you get a chance to spend time at a property or holiday home, you want to know that there is plenty to do so you can make the most of your days. So, it makes sense to choose Picardy, because there is so much near at hand. The region has 20 golf courses, 558 miles of waterways, 6,000 hectares of lakes and 43 miles of coastline. So, golfers, sailors and fishermen are simply in heaven! (Fishing in France.)

If you prefer less active pursuits, the cultural venues of Picardy are just as enticing. Visit the Somme battleground and museum, Amiens Cathedral and the Living Horse Museum. How's that for diversity?
