Luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in the Somme region of France has tradtionally been hard to find. At Le Macassar we strive to provide our 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 our 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 in our room rates - served in the dining room or on the terrace at a time to suit you and not ourselves! 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.

Each room has its own individual appeal: from the 1920's decadence of the Art Deco suite fully fitted in its original ash and bird's-eye maple furniture to the classic French elegance of a room with original wood paneling, hand-woven rugs over waxed floorboards and a marble fireplace.
There are several rooms to relax in; dine in the gallery; relax in the Majorelle drawing room, play billiards in the art deco billiard room or mooch through the sunny courtyard garden.

The bustling and historic town of Corbie "the small town with big emotions" is nestled in the Somme river valley in the Picardie region of Northern France. Synonymous with the battles of the First World War, the many impressive war memorials (the Australian 'ANZAC' Memorial at Villers Bretonneux, the Canadian Memorials at Beaumont Hamel and Vimy Ridge, the English Memorial at Thiepval, to name a few) located nearby are the only reminders in the tranquil rolling countryside of today.
The region is well known for its outdoor pursuits such as horseback riding, swimming, fishing, golfing and boating, and also for its string of impressive gothic cathedrals and abbeys. Amiens Cathedral, located 15 minutes away, is the largest gothic cathedral in the world and a Unesco world heritage site.
Amiens itself is a lively university city with many restaurants, bars and shops. Many hours can be whiled away exploring the lanes and canals of the St Leu district, taking a traditional 'barque' (flat bottomed boat) among the floating allotments of the 'hortillonnages' or simply people watching in an outdoor café.
