The Somme, a department of France located in the Picardie region , is best known for its part in World War I and the many memorials and military cemeteries which can now be found there, but further exploration reveals a very different side to the area. The Baie de Somme, where the Somme empties into the Channel, stretches for 14km and is one of the best-preserved bays in the whole country.

The area, which is where William the Conqueror hid his fleet before sailing to England, is still very much undiscovered. Despite this, it is often bustling with activity, either from fishermen, watersports enthusiasts or wildlife, depending on where exactly you visit. It is regarded as one of the best places for birdwatching in France, and you may find yourself more likely to see migrating birds than people elsewhere.

A two-day break:

Premiere Classe Amiens-Glisy Hotel is a great base from which to explore the region, and the first day could be spent on a trek from Saint-Valery-sur-Somme on one side to Le Crotoy on the other. The walk takes approximately three hours and, though it can be quite arduous, is the best way to experience the nature the area has to offer. Take a much-needed rest on reaching Le Crotoy, which has a number of popular cafes in which to relax.

A week-long stay:

Spending more time in the Baie de Somme provides you with more opportunity to explore the area even further. A must-visit is Le Marquenterre, a protected park at the heart of the area’s nature reserve where you can observe hundreds of migrating birds. Saint-Valery-sur-Somme is also a great place to explore, rich in history and culture and, according to tradition, the place where Joan of Arc was held prisoner.

A family holiday:

A day trip to Quend-Plage-les-Pins, a seaside resort with almost ten miles of sandy beach, is a relaxing way for your family to spend time together. There are also many watersports on offer for the more adventurous members of the group. Another popular attraction is the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme, where you can take a ride on a vintage steam train running between Le Crotoy, Noyelles-sur-Mer and Saint-Valery-sur-Somme.

Transport:

An hour and a half from Calais by car, the Baie de Somme is easy to reach, especially if staying in a Premiere Classe hotel close to the motorway. The bay can be explored either on foot, via the old steam railway, or using the many cycle paths that encircle the bay.

Gastronomy:

Locally caught crabs, prawns and mussels can be found in most of the restaurants and cafes, especially those which sit on the waterfront. Samphire, also known as haricot de mer, is grown in the salt marshes and harvested between Saint-Valery-sur-Somme and Le Hourdel. It is pickled in vinegar and used as a popular condiment.

Events:

One of the biggest events in the calendar is the William the Conqueror Festival which takes place in Saint- Valery-sur-Somme every July to celebrate the area’s history. The city goes back in time to celebrate its medieval roots, with parades, a medieval market, musicians, jugglers and acrobats to entertain the crowds.

Interesting fact:

The Baie de Somme is part of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World club, set up in 1997 with the concept of bringing together the world's most beautiful coastlines in order to aid exchange, action and reflection. The idea was thought up by a Frenchman named Jean Manquat.
