Located in the heart of the Bay of the Somme, St Valéry sur Somme will seduce you by its medieval charm, its protective ramparts and narrow streets. The town consists of a high-and a low- part.
A pleasant atmosphere
Nice to stroll on the quay and through the authentic quarter of the sailors.
History in Brief
The name comes from a monk Gualaric, who came to bring the gospel in the year 611.
What we also remember is that this port, sheltered in the cavity of the bay, accommodated William the Conqueror before attacking England.
This town full of history has also received many artists over the course of time, including Bonington, Jongkind, Degas, Boudin and Victor Hugo, Anatole France, Colette and Heinrich Boll.
