Fantastic apartment. Hope to return next year.
This was our third trip to St Valery sur Somme and each time we have stayed in this apartment. It has everything a couple needs: enough things to cook with, good shower, shops nearby and many comfortable road and off-road cycle routes.
Lovely apartment, Transbaie race, sun, steam trains
A few changes in the apartment from last year, managed to creat even more light. The underground parking place came into its own with the reduction in parking in the town due to the Transbaie. The race on the Sunday was a bit of a highlight with the start going in front of the apartment and waking along the riverbank a bit later the returning runners were either in the Baie or if finished crowding the streets. Over the years the shopping in St Valery has become more sophisticated. This year Inoui has moved from the quay to the rue Ferté and morphed into a Parisian lifestyle store, and yes I did succumb. Another new store Les Vedettes, in the street below the high town is full of lovely things for all ages. This year I tried a new (to me, it has been there a couple of years) restaurant, la Ferté. I had two excellent lunches in quite upmarket surroundings.
M. Robert speaks excellent English and is a very good host. I recommend both the apartment and St Valery.
Great cycling location
Property for 2 is more than adequate: all the basics are there and the local shops are just minutes away.
Good base for a relaxing break, made more relaxing by having a secure parking place.
Although I have stayed in St Valery many times over the last 20 years the apartment was new to me. I was attracted by the clean modern look in the photos and by the underground parking space.( I was last in St Valery in 2016 and spent 80 € on car parking during the week.) When I arrived the apartment looked lovely. I was met by the owner, M. Robert who has very good English, and shown where to park my car, the entrance area and security, importantly the waste bin area and then up to the apartment which is small, but well laid out. I had taken the linen package and appreciated the matching bed linen and towels.The small balcony is a sunny space to enjoy a glass of wine. The apartment is landlocked and does not have river or sea views, but I knew this when I booked and as the walk into the centre (10 minutes at most) is along the river it was not an issue.
The weather in Northern France is much like that in Southern England. I have never been in St Valery for a week without having at least one day of rain. This time there was quite lot of rain but there were also plenty if sunny spells. St Valery is a place to pootle, and there is plenty to see within easy walking distance. There are good food shops and a mini supermarket just below the high town and many restaurants. The sights include the church of St Valery, usually open on Sunday afternoon, the Herbarium - an incredibly beautiful garden, the high town, Musee Picarve and the Chemin de Fer. The trip around the Baie to Le Crotoy is lovely and the aray of narrow gauge steam and diesel trains is a delight. Further away, and needing a car journey is the Parc du Marquenterre where not only is there a huge variety of migrating birds but a beautiful landscape full of wild flowers.
St Valery is a good place for a relaxing holiday and this apartment is a good base.
Thank you very much Susan. I am glad that you have enjoyed your stay and my accommodation. Your review is very well detailed and will certainly help our next Guests. Thanks Again !
Our week-long stay in St Valero was made special by the accommodation - a one-bedroom apartment in a secure complex. The apartment was clean and well-equipped with a first-class balcony for enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings. It was a little away from the town centre and visitors should be warned that parking is difficult, especially at weekends.
