LUXURY HOLIDAYS IN HAUTS-DE-FRANCE
WE TAKE YOU THERE
Our luxury trips accross the Haut-de-France region, offer a sweeping journey through a truly specific territory which begins in the north of the Paris region, a land which concentrates castles and monuments of all kinds, and one of the most beautiful French regions. Forming the massif of the Three forests, the Château de Chantilly and its domain probably is one of the greatest jewels of the Hauts de France. Chantilly, residence of several great princes, including the Bourbon Condé and the Montmorency, unveil eight centuries of architecture.
In a region that concentrates the most beautiful examples of neo-Gothic architecture – the Gothic revival style of the 19th century, swept away during the 16th and 17th centuries – with very rich decors, admire “le fin des fins”, the jewels of this art, accompanied by our historians.
Picardie has some of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals like Senlis, Amiens – which is twice the size of Notre-Dame de Paris- and Beauvais. Pioneer of Gothic art, it saw one of the first cathedrals in Europe stand in Laon as early as 1155 and 70 years later in Saint-Pierre de Beauvais, the architects defied the laws of architecture by raising the vaults of the heart to 48 m, the highest in the world.
In Picardie, marvel at the symbols of power edified by the most powerful men in this territory, through stone, but also in front of emblematic medieval towers: the belfries, symbol of the Middle Ages’ merchants’ wealth. 23 are listed as World Heritage of Unesco. This region extremely marked by successive stories, is also the breeding ground of Art-deco, which appeared after the 1st world war and you will be blown away by its most beautiful nuggets.
Regularly welcoming seals and migrating birds, a visit to the mouth of the Somme, which gave birth to the Baie de Somme, a paradise, is a must when visiting Hauts-de-France. This unique territory in the heart of the region, classified as a major site in France, is one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
Sculpted by the waters of the English Channel, the Opal Coast is one of the most beautiful shores in France. Whether you want to treck along the Opal Coast, fly over its most beautiful portion onboard an ultra leger motorised as far as Cap Blanc-Nez, whose cliffs rise 134 m above the Channel waters, passing through Cap Gris-Nez, the French land closest to the English coast, or discover during high tides, the remains of an English trawler from the First World War while tasting mussels de bouchot, we’ve got our most knowledgable guides on hand to help map out an unforgettable route in the Haut-de-France region.
Arguably one of the most enchanting city of the north part of France, with its monuments testimoning of the time when it belonged to the powerful Counts of Flanders, juxtaposed with others dating after the conquest of the city by Louis XIV, in the 17th century, to those dating from the Spanish conquest and also of the remains of the Middle Ages, when the city was an island, a visit to Lille offers a unique city experience. This town really is one of a kind.
Our historians will make you discover these exceptional architectural ensembles that recall its captivating past and tell how the city gradually became French.
