Summer reading? Take a look at Somerville's War

Picardie is not one of the best regions in France for charming places to stay. Many visitors hurry through on their way south. One of the exceptions is Chateau de Courcelles, listed below, and worth a detour.

Picardie saw much of the worst trench warfare of the First World War. It is mainly flat and agricultural. Perhaps the most interesting towns for visitors are Compiegne and Laon.

As elsewhere, our recommendation in Picardie have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
