Bonjour, Hello,

I am French-Australian, came back to France and just opened the family house Château de Béhen as B&B and would be happy to welcome France lovers between
London and Paris.

You might be interested in the B&B facilities we offer at Château de Béhen, - for holidays to enjoy the house and the region;
- for excursion, short break tour, golf week end in Northern France;
- when you go shopping to Calais or Dieppe (just one hour from Béhen);
- for stop over on your way to Normandy, to Paris, to south of France;
- when you want to organise a special anniversary weekend.

There are so many things to discover in our region, Picardy coast and the Bay de Somme

* Enjoy nature: Visit ornithological bird reserve du Marquenterre and take the steam railway around Bay de Somme which has been selected as one of the most beautiful preserved Bay in the world. Picardy coast offers very different landscapes and coastlines within few miles, along 40 km you have cliffs, then stones beach, then bay, then sandy beaches, Forest de Crécy...

* Enjoy sports: Cycle hire, horse riding on site or nearby, track Grande Randonnée 125, several golfs nearby, big swimming pool in Abbeville, Aqua Club in Fort Mahon, sea side, water sports, and beach sail (char à voile).

*¨ Enjoy rich architectural and historical patrimonies
- Gothic Collegial, Prehistory Museum, in Abbeville (10 km), Château de Bagatelle, Château feudal de Rambures, Abbey de Saint-Riquier, Amiens Cathedral...
- visit St Valery harbour from where William the Conquerant left to England in 1066, not far from Crécy battlefields. We are also not so far to Somme WW1,2 battlefields and memorials: Villers-Bretonneux, Peronne, Albert, Bapaume, and Thiepval.... Huppy, Abbeville...There is also WW2 V1 launch site remaining in Béhen.

* Enjoy French cuisine: You can have evening meal at the Château (table d'hôtes on reservation). Numerous good restaurants nearby or on the coast offer regional specialities from fish to lamb "pré-salé"...

So if you can tell us about your preferences and hobbies (golf, history, gastronomy...) we will be happy to help with the organisation of your stay and inform you about the places to visit.

We will be happy to welcome you at the Château

Yours sincerely, à bientôt
