This little, charming hotel located right in the center of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme (Hauts-de-France) offers, without a doubt, the most beautiful view of the Bay of Somme. With its refined decor and a retro touch, pack your bags for 2 or for your family and discover a spectacular nature and a lovely little fishing port.
3 bonnes raisons de poser ses valises à l’Hôtel des Pilotes
For the breathtaking view it offers on the estuary of the Bay of the Somme, ranked among the most beautiful bays in the world
Definitely ask for one of the 17 rooms on the seaside, to see, from the comfort of your bed, the variations of colors of the water according to the time of the day and the comings and goings of the seals in the middle of some boats of fishermen.
For the atmosphere and the food
With its small lounge-bar, which turns into a boardroom in the afternoon, its friendly bistro by the water and its cozy rooms, the hotel, completely renovated 5 years ago, offers a charming trip quite suitable for families. Your family will appreciate being able to enjoy at any time of day a plate of seafood or a homemade terrine, to taste fish from the local fishing or to discover the specialties of the North: Flemish carbonnade, Maroilles tart, etc.
To discover the Bay of Somme with your children for a weekend
Less than 2 hours from Paris by train, you’ll be surrounded by nature and able to take walks in the fresh air. As a family, the stay takes on a safari-like feel as you discover—on foot or on horseback—the nature reserve of the Domaine du Marquenterre. Between the sea and the dunes, it is home to thousands of migratory birds each year. Also highly recommended when traveling with children, the railway of the Bay of Somme: an authentic train from the 1920s and its locomotive steam travels through fields and marshes on the former network of sea baths, from Crotoy to Cayeux-sur-Mer.
