Chateau des Lys

Baie de Somme


Hello we’re Tim & Margreeth and we take great pleasure in welcoming you to the Château des Lys (Castle of Lillies). This impressive 19th century Picard country house lying in its 14 acres of grounds offers an ideal place to getaway, relax and chill and is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Somme Valley, its bay, its varied history and its enchanting local traditions. We offer clean, tasteful, spacious B& B rooms (chambres d’hôtes) and self-catering apartments (gîtes) at outstanding value. Large groups are welcome. Seminars, weddings, parties and receptions can all be catered for. During the summer months home-cooked meals (tables d’hôtes) are available on request. There are several spacious, comfortable, communal spaces with free WiFi, free safe parking and a sauna. Several golf courses and countless attractions for all ages and interests lie within easy reach including food fairs and antique markets and the lovely Somme Valley steam railway. Follow us on Facebook for our seasonal offers and themed stays. We speak English, Dutch, German (& er… French) and guarantee a prompt reply to any enquiries. The Château lies on the Somme estuary close to the famous Forest of Crecy and it’s about an hour’s drive from Calais. It’s equidistant to Le Crotoy, Abbeville and the gorgeous medieval St. Valery-sur-Somme, all only 10 minutes drive away. Paris is about 90 minutes and the cathedral town of Amiens only 40 minutes making the Château an ideal point for any stopover. We look forward to seeing you soon. Tim & Margreeth Alexander
