Many folks have already written glowing reports about Le Macassar. All I can do is echo what has previously been said. Ian and Miguel have created an extraordinary venue, beautiful and friendly. They are warm and gracious hosts and excellent resources for those wishing to see the Somme battlefield sites. Having traveled widely throughout the world, I believe Le Macassar is among a handlful of the premier places in which I have stayed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Restored in 1926, Le Macassar boasts unique art deco and art nouveau interiors alongside traditional 18th-century rooms providing a perfect backdrop for the owners' collection of period art and antiques. Only 15 minutes away from Amiens we are ideally located for visiting the memorials to the First World War and most major sites (Thiepval, Beaumont Hamel)are within 30 minutes drive. The main Australian WW1 Memorial near Villers Bretonneux is less than 5 minutes away, Vimy Ridge about 50 minutes drive. Guests return again and again to enjoy the service of a luxury hotel together with the relaxation and informality of a private home. For breakfast, an indulgent selection of homemade and local produce is served at a time to suit you and not ourselves! ... more less
