Somme Department

Sea air and inspirational history

The Somme is a multifaceted gem with an invigorating seaside, as well as a wild, rural side of gardens and forests, and a city side, with Amiens and her elegant Gothic cathedral. There are the floating gardens of les Hortillonnages, nature reserves and, of course, Somme bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
