Peronne



Peronne is built on the banks of the river Somme it seems to flow all round the town. We had decided to start our tour of the Battlefields of the Somme from Peronne. Last year we visited Albert and the towns at the other end of the Somme.

Peronne today is a busy medium size town with good shopping streets and plenty of cafes. Considering the town was completely destroyed in 1917. It was also Bombed and burned in May 1940 by the German air force.

The Photo shows the river Somme form the old Chateau you can hire a boat for a trip down the river.

After a walk round the town centre we had a coffee in the cafe in the photo and visited the tourist information centre next door. We found lots of brochure and the helpful staff who spoke English and told us some of the places to visit in the area.

Just across the road is the museum we had come to see the "Historial de la Grande Guerre" the Great War museum. You can see the Museum here We drove round the WWl sites but you can take a Battlefield tour from 132, avenue des Australiens 80200 in Peronne

The Hotel Saint Claude is in a good location to tour the area

 hotel saint claude

The Best Western Hotel Saint Claude is located in the city center of Peronne,

between the 16th century Castle and the museum.

The property has inherited a noble background, as this was the official residence of King Louis XI.

Also in the area, you may dive into history while visiting the cemeteries of the World War I at the doors of Peronne.

Finish the day by admiring splendid typical landscapes on the ponds.

The Best Western Hotel Saint Claude offers 40 sound-proofed rooms entirely renovated in 2005. We offer a choice between two restaurants on premises, with two different styles: one gastronomic and one brasserie style.

Though facing the street, the double-glazed windows give you excellent insulation against any daily passerby.
