This luxurious and desirable property , which has been named as one of the top ten Bed and Breakfast establishments in Europe, offers 6 large en suite rooms and suites for guests, with the current owner's attention to detail making this highly regarded hotel a much- in- demand place to stay, whatever the reasons for visiting the area.
The decor and furnishings of the hotel are exquisite, the love of Art Deco runs throughout and it is like stepping back in time (with 21st century facilities).
All the rooms are beautifully appointed with a mixture of antique and modern furniture, art works and marble fireplaces. All are equipped with amenities such as CD players with a selection of music, interesting books, free WiFi etc . High quality beds, pillows and duvets wrapped in luxurious 500 thread count Egyptian cotton linens ensure a comfortable nights sleep. Spacious, newly appointed bathrooms - many with whirlpool tubs - offer the opportunity for guests to pamper themselves.
Each room has its own individual appeal: from the 1920's decadence of the Art Deco suite fully fitted in its original ash and bird's-eye maple furniture to the classic French elegance of a room with original wood panelling, hand-woven rugs over waxed floorboards and a marble fireplace.
This bustling and historic town is nestled in the Somme river valley in the Picardie region of Northern France. Synonymous with the battles of the First World War, the many impressive war memorials ( the Australian ANZAC Memorial at Villers Bretonneux, the Canadian Memorials at Beaumont Hamel and Vimy Ridge, the English Memorial at Thiepval to name a few ) located nearby are the only reminders in the tranquil rolling countryside of today.
The region is well known for its outdoor pursuits such as horseback riding, swimming, fishing, golfing and boating, and also for its string of impressive gothic cathedrals and abbeys. Amiens Cathedral, located 15 minutes away, is the largest gothic cathedral in the world and a Unesco world heritage site.
Amiens itself is a lively university city with many restaurants, bars and shops. Many hours can be whiled away exploring the lanes and canals of the St Leu district, taking a traditional barque (flat bottomed boat) among the floating allotments of the 'hortillonnages' or simply people watching in an outdoor café.
By car it is just 1.5 hours from Paris and Calais, and 2.5 hours from Brussels .
The nearest airports are Paris Charles de Gaulle under 1.5 hours and Paris Beauvais under 1 hour.
As well as the local train station in Corbie, the high speed 'TGV' train station of Haut Picardie is 20 minutes away.
