General

  • Quiet lakeside campsite near the Somme battlefields
  • On-site fishing and a Zen chalet for pampering
  • Ideal for hikers and cyclists

There's a Zen Cottage at Camping Les Puits Tournants in the Somme. (Perhaps all campsites should have a Zen cottage.) This blissful state of affairs sorts out sauna and Jacuzzi for guests for a small extra charge, along with beauty treatments and massages, all in a quiet retreat right on the shores of a small Picardie lake.

Pack your fishing rods, for casting off is very much allowed here, and load the bikes on the car or caravan as this is proper biking land to: over 120 kilometres of path snake around these surrounds including a véloroute 100 metres away. Pack the walking boots as well, as several paths are accessible straight from the site.

Florian and his team have added a good range of facilities for friends and family to feel peaceful in the Picardian countryside: as well as the Zen Cottage and treatments, there's a pool open throughout the season, a food shop, wifi and a well-equipped playground with trampoline and bouncy castle.

    Location and setting was great.
    We pitched in between 2 lakes. The kids loved it. There was a small playground with a trampoline which the kids loved.

    Disliked: 

    Campsite was a bit basic but location and feeling of the campsite made up for it.

    6amps new caravans keep tripping so had to turn off our water heater. Facilities do need updating hopefully after the new restaurant and pool cover.

    A quiet location and a friendly welcome. The facilities were small but clean, enough for the size of the site. We were able to pitch by the lake side.

    Nothing

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was mainly stone couldnt even pitch my awning. It was a building site with pools being constructed. Office closed a lot of the time all thou there was a number to call. No way to adjust the shower too hot for children. Kids got pushed around in the ay park. Only 3 toilets 3 sinks and 3 toilets. Really hard to get to as a lot of roads where closed not the sites fault but would have been nice to have got an email showing alternate route or even warning what road was closed.

Directions


Local attractions

Camping Les Puits Tournants is within easy reach of the Somme battlefields of World War One, now a land filled with memorials and museums telling the tale of the war and those who died here. The Museum of the Great War is at the small town of Péronne nearby.

If you're in the market for hiking, biking and ambling, over 120 kilometres of reserved trails suitable for all three are along the Somme canal, through Péronne and Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. Several walking paths are directly accessible from the site.

Shops, restaurants and supermarkets are at Corbie and at Albert five and 15km away respectively. A day trip well worth the journey is to Amiens 25 kilometres away, a city with loads to see including its Gothic cathedral, the canal of the Saint-Leu district, Saint-Pierre's Park and the floating gardens.
