We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks here, the first Australians to do so! Its just as lovely as the photos on the site. Our hosts, Marie and Isabelle, were wonderful and made us feel very welcome despite our clumsy school days French. Boulangerie/patisserie 15 second walk away highly recommended. St Valerie sur Somme is a great location for day trips. Arques is a must to visit the Crystal d'Arques factory outlet. The Claude Monet house and gardens is a doable day trip to Giverney and highly recommended. This beaufully renovated fishermans cottage is well equiped and comfortable and suitable for long and short stays. The spiral stairs to access the upper level might not suit the less agile. As is the case with this and the previous 4 gites we have stayed at in France, there is no proper way of drying clothes ie no clothes dryer or clothes line. There is a portable rack for drying clothes but something more suitable would have suited us better, but we are in France. How do the French dry their sheets and other big washing items? TV is French channels only. The Sunday market along the river front is a must do, its big. Also check out the medieval part of the town. The free parking permit provided is a bonus. There appears to be no free parking anywhere. Lots of nice cafes and other shops in the town. The Carrefour in St V. was our local supermarket. Hyper U in Abbeville our pick for a big grocery shop. Highly recommended place to stay.
