The Experience

This apartment is one of several in the building with a bohemian feel, and is modern, stylish and functional. Although it’s right in the city centre, looking out onto the facade of the Hôtel de Ville and the main pedestrian street, you’ll feel blissfully tucked away and quiet.

Vincent and Peter also run a B&B in the countryside but are on hand if you need anything. They’ll leave a welcome basket of fruit and locally-made macarons, and can arrange for a hamper of home-baked breakfast treats to be waiting for you too.

Have breakfast at the little table and chairs in the plant-filled communal terrace outside the front door; sip a glass of wine in the evening after a day of sightseeing. The covered market and the famous Cathedral and Musée de Picardie are only a five-minute walk away.

Reviews

I really enjoyed inspecting Vincent and Peter's place. Their company was lovely and it wasn't long before we started chatting as friends. I really loved the quality of the experience they offer and you couldn't have a more central place if you wished to enjoy the liveliness of city life.

Location

The neighbourhood

The train station is a ten-minute walk away, and all bus lines can be reached within five minutes. There are plenty of shops for groceries nearby and two bakeries, one vegan; for restaurants, Peter and Vincent recommend Les 3 Cailloux on the Place Gambetta and Querelle, or Le Rétroviseur in the picturesque neighbourhood of St Leu, and L' Atelier d'Alex near the Cathedral. There's a bicycle store and underground parking downstairs or a 3-minute drive away as well.

Local points of interest from Peter Clark & Vincent Caplier

  • Amiens is a bicycle-friendly city. There's a shared-usage bike station close to the flat and longer term hire available at the railway station. The Somme Valley cycle track runs through Amiens and leads to the coast along the towpath.
  • Picturesque Saint Leu is also the nightlife centre of Amiens with many bars and restaurants. It's a short stroll away but sufficiently far that you won't be disturbed once you're ready to turn in.
  • One of the two best bakeries in Amiens is two minutes' walk away. There are several organic shops close by as well.
  • Garden and nature lovers will enjoy Le Jardin des Plantes, the Saint Pierre park, the La Madeleine cemetery and, just outside the city, the Saint Ladre nature reserve.
  • The famous Hortillonages are one of the musts of Amiens and are the site of an annual summer contemporary art festival.
  • Amiens has a diverse cultural offer with an annual street circus festival, the Maison de la Culture arts centre and several live music venues including the renowned Lune des Pirates.

Introducing

Peter Clark & Vincent Caplier

Peter is from Suffolk and has lived in France since 2007, and Vincent is a French graphic designer and chief decorator of their apartment in Amiens - he chose the furniture and lithographs, which come from a collective in Berlin. They run their environmentally-responsible B&B, Les Mazures in the Baie de Somme, where they grow their own vegetables and breed their own hens.
