Looking through the kitchen  window from the front of the house to the back.
We have used the kitchen for many years so it has everything you need for family cooking and eating.
There are additional chairs (and a table) in the sitting room so you can seat a larger party.
These former piggeries are now used for storage.
Looking down Rue Touillette from the gate. Farm vehicles are usually the only traffic.
Road from Bealcourt to Auxi. It's a short drive or an easy bike ride to get your shopping.
The surrounding area is tranquil, farming country.
The church, which is just outside the village, can be glimpsed behind the trees.
Poplars are cultivated along the Authie valley and bring local income as well as providing firewood.
The beautiful gardens at Maizicourt are just up the road.
Valloires is a more formal but also very beautiful garden further along the pretty Authie valley.
Wimy Ridge, with its haunting memorial and trenches, is within easy reach.
As are many other WW! sites.
The Bay of the Somme is a place of wide open skies, empty strands, charming towns and wildlife.

“Tranquil retreat and super base for exploring the area”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We have visited this part of France annually for the last seven years and this house proved to be another gem. Although a bit more rural/in country than previous stays we benefitted from wonderful tranquility and were able to visit new areas.
The house was cosy but very ample in size. The children loved having their own upstairs space to read, play games and use the footy table too. The kitchen was fully equipped for all our cooking needs . The lounge was very comfy and, unlike some places we have stayed, the fire wood was plentiful and free - with the weather not being its kindest we made great use of the log burner. The house was clean, comfortable and can't fault it.
We love this area. Ameins (particularly the cathedral and les Hortillonnages) was fabulous and a self-directed tour of the Somme was quite something too. There are plenty of guidebooks in the house to help you make the most of the area too.
The one problem that did occur was dealt with quickly and effectively by the owner. Booking and owner contact was all good and have no hesitation in recommending the property to others. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

“Fabulous location for cycling!”
Reviewed September 2, 2017 for a stay in October 2015

This lovely house is a great base if like me you are looking for access to hundreds of miles of tranquil rural roads to explore on your bike! It has a lovely wood burning stove to warm you up if you get caught in a chilly rain shower (a rare event) and is in a peaceful location with its own attractive gardens. If you don't fancy getting out on two wheels, there is also walking and easy access to lovely coastal locations such as saint valery sur Somme. A great escape.

“So relaxing”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

If you need a place to unwind, this simply decorated, informal and spacious French farmhouse will do it. There is ample room both for large gatherings and for solitude. Although I was there with just two others, I could tell it was perfect for a family with active young children. The garden is big enough for football, but close to the house, also offers a usually sunny terrace suitable for quiet reading and early evening G&Ts. A reasonable cycle ride away, the local town, Auxi-le-Chateau, is attractive and has everything you need, while retaining a relaxed ordinariness. There is enough historical and cultural interest in the surrounding region to suit most. The Authrie river, which flows through the town, makes the area attractive for boating and for hikes along its banks. Larger towns, such as Amiens, offer good day- trip destinations, but mostly you will just want to stay around the farmhouse and do very little.

“Rue Touillette provided an idyllic retreat.”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

When I showed up on the doorstep of Rue Touillette last September, I was something of a wreck. After a year in which my mother passed away, my only daughter left for college and I couldn’t drive for three months because of a broken ankle, I was someone in desperate need of a break.

Rue Touillette provided an idyllic retreat. I left two weeks later, rested, refreshed and restored. The people were kind, the countryside lovely and the food and wine fabulous.

Each morning, I threw open the French doors and stepped out into the sun. I sat on the patio in the lush, green garden and wrote. For lunch, there was salad with fresh lettuce, cucumbers and the largest crimson tomatoes I’ve ever seen, all from the weekly farmers’ market. I delighted in the aroma of newly-baked French bread, local chevre and pate. A glass of chilled, crisp Bourgogne sat at my side. There were tiny wild strawberries, thick yogurt, dark chocolate and strong French press coffee.

Although I was there on a solitary journey, the house would be perfect for families. There is one large bedroom and one smaller bedroom downstairs. The top floor is a bright and spacious loft, with two bedrooms and another bathroom.

The kitchen is cheerful, sunny and well-equipped. The downstairs den is cozy with a TV and an impressive selection of books.

Each night, I went into the nearby village of Auxi-le-Chateau and became somewhat of a regular at a charming bistro. The owner, who spoke no English, patiently explained the daily specials to the American, who spoke no French. On my last night, he presented me with an extravagant tropical cocktail and insisted on taking my picture with it.

Perhaps my favorite thing about the farmhouse was it is off the beaten path. This beautiful area of France is not touristy. This is not to say it is boring.

In WWI, the Battle of the Somme was fought nearby. The farmhouse itself has a rich history. Other historical monuments and museums in the region are worth visiting.

I also enjoyed day trips to Amiens, with its stunning cathedral, and to the wide, iridescent beaches of the Cote d’Opale.

My only regret about Rue Touillette is that I didn’t stay long enough and I can’t get back soon enough.
