My boyfriend and I have just bought a house near Amiens, in Boves (8 minutes from Amiens). This is a big house with three bedrooms. One private bedroom is available for you if you want to. We'd be more than welcome to have you in our home, share breakfast in the morning if we don't have to go to work and show you around. BREAKFAST is obviously INCLUDED in the price! The bedroom has a sofa and a queen size bed . If three of you are traveling, we may be able to find a bed somewhere and put you in the third bedroom but we haven't worked on it yet (just so you know). We live by the train station (less than 5 minutes) which goes to Paris in an hour from very early in the morning to late at night. The train also goes to Amiens in three minutes and Boulogne (beaches in Picardie, Baie de Somme). There is a lot to see in our area (we have the most beautiful cathedral ever and we have sites dedicated to the second world war if you're interested. we have the caves of Naours too and a lot more to discover, it's up to you :) you can take the bus to go to the city centre of amiens, it stops near our house!
If I'm around and you get there by train, I can pick you up at the train station since it's very close. There is a place to rent a car five minutes from our house and I can drive you there if you need. Our house is in a safe neighborhood where kids can play outside easily. We have a garden, a kitchen and a living room to share with you but we're not often home because we are very sporty and we have practices pretty much every night! There is the train which goes by our house but the trains stop at 11pm and to be honest with you, I can't really hear them anymore because I am used to it. It doesn't bother anyone in the neighborhood but in case it bothered you, (I can easily understand some people can be bothered by this noise) we'd be more than happy to give you earplugs to please you :)))))))))))))))))
Of course you can use the kitchen as needed, we want you to feel at home so feel free to help yourself with plates, knives, glasses and everything you need! But clean after yourself please as you would do at home. help yourself in the fridge or with coffee or tea if you're thirsty.
I can help you with your trips and give you advice too if you want and if I can help, specially about historical places! We love travelling and we love sharing stories :)
hope to see you soon! come and have a look, it will be worth it ;)

The reservation was canceled 88 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
nous sommes arrivés tard dans la nuit chez Marine mais sans problèmes pour les hôtes...On a vraiment l'impression d'être "comme à la maison". Dommage que nous n'ayons pas eu plus l'occasion de faire connaissance ensemble avant de repartir. La chambre est très agréable et au calme. A recommander sans hésitation !

Marine and Ludo made us so welcome we felt as comfortable as if we were staying with our own family. We were made to feel at home with tea nad coffee available as we wamnted and a generous breakfast. We had some very interesting conversations with them together and individually. Their house is very conveniently located and proved a great base for us to explore the area. thank you very much for a great finale to our visit to France.
Très bon accueil convivial et chaleureux, maison au calme très agréable. La chaleur de la cheminée, le petit muffins un vrai bonheur ...
Un vrai bonheur que d'être accueilli chez Marine et Ludovic !
Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de les rencontrer car ils étaient en déplacement pour la soirée et nous ne sommes restés qu'une nuit
Malgré cela, tout a été fait pour que l'on se sente comme chez nous : échanges mail courtois et chaleureux, petite combine pour nous garantir l'accès à la maison malgré leur absence, maison propre et calme (quel train ??!), petit mot d'accueil et chambre toute mignonne. Nous avons passé une très bonne nuit et n'avons même pas été réveillé par leur retour. Le lendemain, un petit-déjeuner nous attendait...
Bref, un regret : ne pas avoir pu rencontrer ce couple ; une envie : revenir !
Merci à vous !
Marine and Ludo were fun, extremely welcoming, and accommodating. They really went out of their way to make us feel at home. We were welcome to use their kitchen. The bus to Amiens was conveniently located less than a five minute walk from their house. Marine was kind enough to give us a ride to the train station on her holiday.
My daughter and I stayed one night at Marine's house - it was a very brief visit but Marine and her partner made us very welcome. Their house is in a suburb just outside of Amiens but access is quite easy either by public transport or taxi. Marine very kindly drove us down to the local shops as we had arrived in the evening and hadn't eaten.
Their house is modern and the bedroom is a good size - plenty big enough for two people. There is a large living room downstairs and a back garden, which would be nice in the summer.
In the morning they gave us breakfast and again drove us to the car rental firm. Marine's partner even came in to help us in case the staff didn't speak English.
All in all it was a very pleasant experience and I wish we had more time to stay there.
We had a wonderful stay with Marine & Ludo in Amiens and they were fantastic hosts. Their home was lovely, very stylish and comfortable. We had a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble, they gave us their umbrella for the rain and put our racing bikes in their garage so we didn't have to leave them in the car. They told us about where to visit in Amiens and we enjoyed a spectacular light show of Amiens Cathedral which we wouldn't previouslyhave known about. They also offered their umbrella to shield us from the rain! We had the opportunity if we wanted to cook and make tea or coffee at any time. Breakfast was delicious and we hope to return again and we would highly recommend their BnB!
Le séjour chez Marine et Ludo s'est déroulé a merveille !
J'y étais dans l'objectif de travailler ayant un examen à passer à Amiens et le calme était au rendez vous comme me l'avait dit Marine.
A chaque fois que j'ai mis le nez hors de mes révisions j'ai eu plaisir a parler avec Marine et Ludo qui sont très soucieux du bien être et du confort des personnes qu'ils recoivent.
En clair, que vous cherchiez un endroit comme chez vous, pour visiter la charmante ville d'Amiens, ou pour travailler... c'est l'endroit qu'il vous faut !
On late evening, much later than we planed (sorry! sorry! traffic jam), under raining, in darkness, we came to Ludo (Marine was unfortunately not at home) who received us like a mother :). Everything was super organized!: Marine had guided us per phone as we drived in Boves, Ludo waited for us at home and showed us personally (with the car!!), where we can eat. There was already closed. THEN Ludo cooked for us (!!!!!) and gave us also beer (!!!!). He was very helfpul, kundly, affably and straightforward! And he speaks super English! He can make professional "mini-hotel"-business! :) Marine can be relaxed if she is not at home and Ludo is there alone! :) The bed is super comfortable (even for three persons: our son slept with us without problems), the bathroom is very beautiful. Everything is clean and very interesting designed. And the breakfast was super; Ludo asked often if we'd like something else etc.etc. Super!!!!! Super!!!!
