The northern-French region of Picardy is steeped in historic culture, from the floating gardens on the Amiens canals and the famed Maison de Jules Verne, to the sumptuous vineyards of Champagne.

The ground floor houses a sumptuous open-plan living space that's ripe for relaxation, complete with warming wood burner and a well-equipped kitchen. Enjoy your freshly-prepared meals in the homely dining area, or perhaps head out to the enclosed courtyard and drink in the beautiful garden views along with your French wine!
You'll find Aubenton teeming with forest trails that begin just outside your door - ideal for hiking, fishing and nature-watching. Meanwhile, the bustling town of Hirson is just a few miles away.
