Romantic getaway

Escape into the heartland of Artois

The Artois countryside is there to be enjoyed as a natural extension to the Arras art of living, so closely is the regional capital’s prosperity linked to the legendary riches of France's 'bread basket'. Châteaux of masters in their sophisticated eighteenth century adornments, hamlets of white stone offering glimpses of discreet, square-courtyarded farms, small village squares, some overlooked by characteristic churches with flèches à crochet pointed spires, the ghosts and vestiges of once-powerful abbeys and even a lime tree avenue listed as a Historical Monument... all punctuate walking routes through landscapes of astonishing variety. A paradise for all forms of outing.
