TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Le Saint-Claude Peronne
Hotel was really reasonably priced, very clean and quiet. Right in the middle of town with friendly helpful staff. Parking was available close by. You could take the car to the door for pick ups and drop offs.

We hired a car for this part of our trip. We were really keen to see the Western front where both of our grandfathers had served in WW1. Equally we wanted to visit Monet's gardens at Giverny where he composed many of his paintings and his water lily series in particular.
We invited along a friend to be our guide and it was a very shaky start …
... later; are there none at Versailles?
We also toured the gardens, in their winter guise. It was cold, but we enjoyed the walk.
From Compiegne, we drove to Amiens, picking up traffic just outside of town. Most parking lots were full, but I did get a space in a lot a few blocks from the hotel. I think it might have been the last spot in the lot (maybe even in the city). We walked to ...
... to Pauls french.
Back to Broyes and the matter at hand, packing, and determining how the weight should be spread. Our handluggage is getting heavier by the minute!
A final log fire.
Dominique came over with a bottle of local champagne for our last night, so we sat around making serious inroads on the bottle ...
Peronne, a town on the Somme, about 6 km from Cartigny, was virtually destroyed during the Great War. Initially it was the headquarters for the German Command, so shelled and bombed. Won by the British before being recaptured by the Germans. More destruction. In March 1918, the 2nd Australian Division managed to take Mont St Quentin, a pivotal rise ...
... among the graves.
Dernacourt, Jeancourt, Grevilles. Each cemetery has its own register, for those buried and those whose names are inscribed on the memorial. We recorded our visit and the soldier searched for on Lyn's behalf. Initially I was doing a friend a favour and out of curiosity, but it soon became personal to locate each and every one.
