Poppy Cottage - Somme - Sleeps 4

Pair of seaside gites, 5 minutes centre of Saint Valery-sur-Somme 

Poppy Cottage in Somme, a cottage in Picardy

Pair of charming gites, each sleeps 4, both make ideal holiday home for 8

Saint Valery-sur-Somme is a wonderful Picardy town on the Baie de Somme, recently voted second favourite village in France in a France 3 competition. It offers medieval history and ramparts, boat trips to see the seals, a steam train around the bay, a herbarium, mini-golf, many Festivals and more than 30 restaurants. Yet it's an easy ONE HOUR DRIVE from Calais Ferries and Tunnel.
In a quiet lane just behind the town's main street, Poppy Cottage, named after the flower of remembrance that is so prolific in the nearby Somme battlefields, and its twin gite Captain's Cottage next door, offer comfortable holidays for four to eight people. (For availability of Captain's or both cottages combined, please contact us for more information.) Each cottage
features two bedrooms (one double, one twin in Poppy), a cosy lounge with flat-screen TV (English and French channels), CD Hi-Fi, Wi-Fi for your phone and laptop, and games and books. The well-equipped kitchen/diner has everything you could need for a self-catering holiday, though most prefer to explore the 30 or more restaurants in the town! The bathroom has a good-size modern shower and an original French slipper bath. Patio furniture and a barbecue feature in the garden, which is safe for children to play in to their hearts' content, with outdoor games provided.
A last-day cleaning service is available at a further 50 euros.
A choice of three good boulangeries, a small supermarket and a tabac are within 4 minutes' walk, and Intermarche, Carrefour and Lidl within a five-minute drive. The bustling Sunday morning market has fresh and cooked foods and a wide selection of other produce.
We welcome well-behaved pets, and an English-speaking Vet for Pet Passport formalities is four minutes' walk away at the end of the road. Renaud and Katie speak English and French, and can advise and recommend with any questions you may have.
The Baie de Somme offers many activities such as nature trails, canoeing, bird-watching, horse-riding, boat-hire and cycling, so we offer FREE USE OF FOUR QUALITY MOUNTAIN BIKES, one with a toddler seat. There are several enjoyable and safe dedicated cycle paths out of St Valery. Further afield are the battlefields and memorials of the Somme.
Street parking for two cars is right outside, and is FREE throughout your stay.
St Valery beach is 5 minutes' walk, and from May to September we offer free and EXCLUSIVE USE OF OUR WELL-EQUIPPED BEACH HUT with Poppy Cottage.
Terms are Saturday to Saturday, weekends (in low season) subject to availablity.
