Luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in the Somme region of France has traditionally been hard to find. At Le Macassar the owners strive to provide their guests with the comfort and service of a small luxury boutique hotel, together with the relaxation and informality of a private home, providing a perfect base to explore the many sites associated with the battles of the First World War as well as the beautiful and varied countryside of the region. Albert, Thiepval, and Amiens are within a 30 minute drive and Villers Bretonneux less than five minutes away.
Extensively restored in the 1920's and 30's, the building boasts unique art deco - and earlier art nouveau interiors alongside traditional eighteenth century rooms. They provide a perfect backdrop for their collection of period art and antiques*. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the entire property, including a large and sunny formal courtyard garden. Have a quiet moment with a book in the art nouveau splendour of the Majorelle drawing room, relax with a glass of wine or bubbly and hors d'ouvres after a days sight seeing; or challenge fellow guests to a game of French billiards in the art deco billiard room - our home is yours to enjoy during your stay.
For breakfast, a delicious and varied selection of home made and local produce, including cooked specialities, are included - served in the dining room or on the terrace at a time to suit you and not the owners! Superb local restaurants are within walking distance or a short drive away and we will be happy to make recommendations and reservations for lunch or dinner.
* Le Macassar regrets that due to the abundance of antiques it is not a suitable destination for children under 12. Please also note that the owners of La Macassar have two quite lively dogs which may make Le Macassar unsuited to those having an aversion to canine pets.
