Tranquil, secure with a home from home feel.
Situated in a small hamlet just 15 minutes from Amiens, this modern converted basement flat has everything you'll require for your stay. From a pull down TV/cinema screen, to a well appointed kitchen, this property has the space to sprawl and chill. Not sure I'd go with a large family to this property, as there's only one proper bedroom. There are sofa beds, but its not something I would want to sleep on for a week or two. The hosts are really friendly and approachable. We even had warm croissants left on our doorstep one morning. Secure behind electronic gates, the property and car is off the road and safe. Nice place to take quiet walks, as it really is rural countryside, but there are no shops in the locality, no pub or tabac. A bakery (boulangerie) is a five minute drive. We would recommend this property for couples, maybe with a young off-spring, as there is a single bed in the main bedroom. The main property above the flat has more bedrooms, but is leased separately. Lovely location for accessing the War graves, and the countryside of Picardy. Would stay here again.

Fantastic luxury apartment with sun trap deck.
Craig & Celine were the perfect hosts, very kind & helpful before & during our stay. The apartment is very luxurious & spacious, especially the bathroom. We were blessed with hot weather, & the private decking area with 2 loungers, 4 chairs & side tables , dining table & chairs plus a gas BBQ was a godsend. The location is lovely, with lakes & walks close by plus only a short drive to the lovely city of Amiens. Really enjoyed our stay & looking forward to returning next year.

Comfortable and relaxing base for an interesting region
Very comfortable and well-equipped property, with friendly and helpful owners. We enjoyed the rental itself and its lovely garden, with a private area for our own use, as well as the region. When not chilling outside or watching movies on our very own big screen, we visited Amiens and Beauvais, both of which have famous cathedrals, the First World War memorials and museums, and the natural areas around the coast (we particularly recommend Saint-Valéry, Marquenterre (bird sanctuary) and Le Hourdel (seals!). So, highly recommended and many thanks to Céline and Craig for their warm welcome.

fabulous
Celine and Craig are charming, helpful hosts who made our stay enjoyable. We had a great time and love the accommodation as well as the area, which is pretty and peaceful. We fund plenty to do in this area and looking forward to visiting again as there are still a lot of things and places which we wish to see and didn't have time to do.

Fantastic
Celine & Craig our hosts are a lovely couple and kept in touch with us while we were delayed on the ferry. The property is in a small quiet village and there is a large garden with a barbecue and plenty of seating. The house is immaculate and equipped with everything you will need for a perfect stay, we felt really at home there and would highly recommend the property to anyone.

Awesome house in a beautiful area
We spend a week end there with some friends. The house is great and it has all you need ! Fully equiped kitchen, a big bathroom with a shower and a king size bathtub, parking spot, enough beds and couches for you, your family (or friends) ! Fossemant is a little village, quiet and peacefull. From there, you can be in Amiens in 15-20 minutes and it's close to some WW1 and WW2 places. The owners are awesome too ! Helpfull and sympathic ! I'll recommend this place to all !

About the neighborhood
Picardy: Picardy is located in the northern part of France. Picardy stretches from the long sand beaches of the Somme estuary in the west to the vast forests and pastures of the Thiérache in the east and down to the chateaux of Chantilly or Pierrefonds near the Paris Area and vineyards of the border with Champagne (Champagne picarde) to the south. An important agricultural region of France, Picardy has a diverse natural environment consisting of 40 km of coastline, many rivers, marshes and ponds and lakes, forests, and pastures. It is a favorite region of France for hiking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking, sailing, sand yachting and other outdoor activities. Somme: We are located in the department of Picardy called the Somme, named after the Somme river. The Somme was the site of a series of battles during World War I, and is most noted for the prominent use of trench warfare. Particularly significant was the 1916 Battle of the Somme. As a result of this and other battles fought in the area the department is home to many military cemeteries and several major monuments commemorating the many soldiers from various countries who died on its battlefields, particularly those of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. We are less than 30 minutes (35 km/21 miles) from Cantigny, site of the first American offensive of World War I. One of the largest Chinese cemeteries of WWI is located within 30 minutes.
