The
Experience

Le Macassar is named after the rare ebony used in the drawing room panelling – one exquisite example among so many others. This gem of a house has 15th-century foundations but was restyled in the Twenties and Thirties to please a pretty young wife. There’s much to admire wherever you gaze and plenty of space to spread out – wherever you choose to sit you can be served tea and scones or champagne and hors d’oeuvres.

Bedrooms are spacious, beautifully arranged and with a very private feel. Wake to generous breakfasts served around a convivial dining table on pretty porcelain; poached eggs on toast with avocado and smoked salmon, brioche with warm berry compote and Canadian maple syrup. Deborah is a superb cook and serves dinner on Sunday evenings from locally-sourced and often organic ingredients.

You can walk to shops and restaurants, explore the ancient abbey, follow the river through miles of woodland and pasture. The Val de Somme battlefields surround you and Amiens with its Notre Dame Cathedral is a short drive through rolling hills, rivers and lakes. Return to sit in the garden with its fountain and comfortable chairs.

Location

The neighbourhood

Corbie is a small town but there’s much to see and do. Walk to the twice-weekly market, discover a tourist centre with a large art gallery, an indoor water park, tennis courts, lawn bowling, shops and restaurants. There are over 300 war cemeteries in the area and many WW1 memorial centres. Amiens, a world UNESCO heritage site is a twenty-minute drive, the coast an hour away.

Local points of interest from Deborah Murphy

  • Located in the heart of the landscapes associated with the battles of the First World war and the Somme now remembered through many striking and poignant memorials and visitors centres including The Sir John Monash Center, Thiepval, Albert and Vimy.
  • The historic and bustling city of Amiens is only a short 20 minute drive or train ride away. Visit the Notre Dame Cathedral (UNESCO), the Jules Verne History Musem, shops, dining, the vibrant canal district and more await you.
  • The Picardy coastal area at the mouth of the Somme estuary is a haven for bird watching, water sports along miles of white sandy beaches or simply explore the many unspoilt towns, Gothic Cathedrals, antique shops and boulangerie's along the way.
  • Easy day trips to the vineyards of Champagne, the boutiques of Lille, the Louvre gallery in Lens, or hop onto a train into the centre of Paris in an hour then return to the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of Le Macassar.
  • You are a 5 minute stroll to the scenic Somme river where the tow path alongside the river has been converted into a 120 km cycle track with modern facilities, picnic areas, bike racks and Bistros.
  • Tennis courts, a golf course, parachuting, and a large public pool are all minutes away.
