Whilst the Somme wouldn’t head a ‘go-to’ list in most people’s minds, it has so much to offer that it almost deserves the title ‘the hidden France’.
Access by car from the UK is quick and easy without arduous hours spent pounding the French motorways. This gives you the freedom to plan less and still grab more opportunities to enjoy your cherished hide away. The ‘opal coast’ offers expansive beaches, open skies and nature reserves. Turn inland (as we did) and you quickly melt in to a landscape of lush rolling countryside, farmland and pretty villages, without losing touch with all the coastal attractions.
If there is a hidden France, it may just be closer to home than you think.
