Review by: Bill and Helen, Juin 6 2018 8:26AM
Christine is a wonderfully warm, very helpful and interesting host. All the previous reviews are very true, a very warm welcome, always happy to assist with any questions you may have. A wonderful homemade breakfast, delicious yoghurt, croissants and cereals. Very comfy beds and Christine is very fluent in English which was so comforting. Thank you so much Christine for making us so welcome and all your help with getting our car back to Paris. We made it Christine and now home in Australia. Thank you for your many kindnesses. We were sad to leave. Bill and Helen.
a great time

First Class Accomodation
Review by: Ian Fritsch, Aou 23 2016 12:00AM
Stayed with the perfect host Christine for 4 nights in August 2016, this first class accomodation is located in the center of the somme battlefields. It is the most friendly and quiet place to stay, I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone. The beautiful breakfasts by Christine is something to look forward.
Cristine is very fluent in english for us Aussies and a great assistance to explore the area.
Brilliant location

We stayed in May 2015, for just one night, on our way to Italy . It was a brilliant location and looking to go back. Christine was so welcoming and helpful.
Superb place
Review by: Hylton Marrs, Jan 29 2015 11:29AM
Stayed with Christine in 2008 and will be there again in 2016. Hope this place doesn;t become TOO POPULAR (only joking). Warm, friendly, beautiful and fabulously situated for those interested in WW1 and the gorgeous Picardy region in general. Can' rate Christine's hospitality high enough. Rooms have been booked for 7 yrs now.
Somme Area Visit
Review by: Trevor, Anita & Matthew Mortimer, Dec 15 2014 1:05PM
We visited the Albert region in Oct 2014, spending four nights at Chambres d'hôtes L'Amartinierre. Christine & her family were the perfect hosts and extremely welcoming and I would not hesitate to recommend the accommodation. I and my stepdaughter will hopefully be visiting the area in 2015 and will certainly stay with Christine again. The experience is what we'd consider to be a typical French rural homestead, very quiet but never far from destinations we were visiting. Very enjoyable!!
A warm welcome
Review by: Maggie Cummings, Juil 28 2014 10:06PM
Madam Christine is an excellent host, and the gite is peaceful in a lovely if a little remote setting

Review by: Gill Berg, Sep 23 2012 12:38PM
Christine made us feel very welcome and this is a comfortable B and B to use as a base to travel around the Somme. The use of a kitchen is a real bonus and the peace and quiet beyond compare.
