If you are travelling for business or pleasure please choose from our selection of self catering accommodation in Abbeville. Abbeville is a city in Picardy in northern France. The town is located on the Somme River, about 20 kilometres from its mouth in the English Channel and 45 kilometres northwest of Amiens. It lies about halfway between Paris and Calais. In the medieval period, it was the lowest crossing point on the Somme and it was nearby that Edward III's army crossed shortly before the Battle of Crécy in 1346. The city was very picturesque until the early days of the Second World War when it was bombed mostly to rubble in one night. Several of the town's attractions remain, including the Gothic St. Vulfran's church, erected in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. The facade is a magnificent specimen of the flamboyant Gothic style with beauiful door panels carved in the 16th century, flanked by two towers. Also worth seeing is the very ornate Flemish-style station, the gare SNCF.
