My husband, daughter and I have just returned from a lovely 3 day stay here. We booked this Chateau based on other trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in the suite opale, a superb suite, with a huge double bedroom, lovely bathroom (with 2 sinks! however no over head shower, only handheld but that doesn't bother me) and gorgeous sitting room with a trolley bed for my daughter. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the welcome was very warm and M.Cuvelier was delightful with my 3 year old. The food was stunning, he cooked one meal for my daughter at 6pm and then cooked again for us at 8pm, while she slept upstairs (the baby monitor stretched so I was very relaxed). My only slight moan was that I didn't realise that you have to eat out on a Sunday, a trifle challenging with a 3 year old who needs to go to bed around 8pm French time on a Sunday. However the rest of the time the food was amazing and breakfast was also lovely. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here (currently there's a stay 2 nights get the third free offer - well worth it) and hope to return next year!

Had a lovely weekend here. Area is beautiful, owners are so friendly but most importantly the food is amazing! The owner cooked for us both nights and the food was superb and there was plenty of it. Would love to go back one day.

We simply cannot thunder on past the turning for Béhen! This was our fourth visit and we are already planning when we can go again. M. Cuvelier is a warm and generous host; his expansive but never dominant presence generates and sustains the sense of well- being which prevails in this delightful comfortably appointed château . Children love the animals , and for the interested adult , there is plenty of history to be discovered in the grounds. Who says 'la France profonde n'existe plus' ? You have only to venture off the main roads to find many a jewel of a spot in Picardy not to mention the salt marshes of the nearby Bay of the Somme. The whole area merits at least a long weekend; Château de Béhen provides a wonderful base and after a day exploring, the pleasure of M. Cuvelier's excellent table ( and cellar) can await the guest if he would but ask at breakfast.

I recently stayed here for three nights with my Mum and twelve year old niece. We used it as a base to explore the Somme region and wanted to include a traditional French experience. We were superbly hosted and thoroughly enjoyed the stay here. My niece enjoyed the horse riding too! We stayed in the Ruby family room which was lovely and spacious and beautifully decorated. Although the Chateau is a little out of the way, meaning you have to drive to any ammenities and restuarants it is in a wonderful location and very peaceful. We visited the Somme battlefields, Albert, Amiens (fabulous light show at the cathedral at night), the Bay of the Somme and St Catherines. Highly recommended and would like to return.

The rave reviews here prompted me to book a room (Suite Saphir) for an overnight stay en route further into France after arriving in Calais.

The house is beautiful and our suite spacious and comfortable, but it is the welcome and service from Norbert and Christine that makes this place special. They are enthusiastic and attentive hosts, delighting in their home and in allowing others to enjoy it.

Dinner was delicious, and very good value, given that pre-dinner drinks and wine were included (€41 per adult). Our children ate with us, but Norbert offered to cook for and serve them earlier if that had been our preference.

We will return, I'm sure. This would be a marvellous place for a get-together with a group of friends or family!

Room Tip: Suite Saphir is perfect for families - two bedrooms (one king; one twin), two bathrooms and a separa...

This is an idyllic place to stay. The château is nicely restored and the rooms are classical and comfortable without being precious and with lots of space and countryside views. The setting is handy for exploring the Baie de Somme and Abbeville as well as being set in a small village in open countryside. Eating at the château is an exceptional treat. It is not just the candlelight dinner or the spacious dining room but also the quality of the food and wine (inclusive) which makes this such a treat. Breakfast is good as well! Add in a friendly, generous host who can talk knowledgeably about the area and this place really is a delight. Access from the Channel ports is a doddle as well and you really do think you're in France. If your batteries need recharging or you just want a treat, the château is ideal.
