In Saint Valery sur Somme

Saint Valery sur Somme, member of the Club of the most beautiful detours of France, dominates the Bay of Somme … Let yourself be seduced by its medieval charm, ramparts and cobbled streets …

Its strategic position on a limestone promontory facing the Bay of Somme, earned Saint Valery on the Somme a rich and eventful history. Be curious, do not just stroll along the banks of the Somme, several neighborhoods give this city an undeniable charm.

The upper town is a fine example of a medieval city, behind the harbor, the Courtgain is the traditional quarter of sailors who occupied small colorful houses, tight against each other, the neighborhood of the abbey is more rural with farms in activity. The pleasure boats are moored along the channel and the docks, occupied by market stalls on Sunday mornings, are open to walkers.
