My name is Emmanuel. I’m married to Valerie and have 3 children. Camille 16 years old, Raphaëlle 13 years old and Louison 11 years old.
We live in Croixcrault a little village near Amiens in Picardy.
I’m a gitesowner, more exactly a B&B owner. My B&B is situated near the exit 13 on the motorway A 29 between Amiens and Rouen.

We have two family rooms with a double bed on the ground floor and two single beds on the mezzanine.

Since 2008 I offer rides in a barouche pulled by my two highland ponies.

I can recommend you some interesting tourist sited near the B&B.

Why don’t you take your bike and ride along the valleys of the river Evoisson and the river Poix ?
A tour of about 40 km that will make you discover the forest, some small villages. Why don’t you succumb yourself to the charm of the wild landscape? At the end of your trip you arrive in a small town where you could have your lunch and taste some of the local delicious specialities.

If you don’t have the time and don’t stay for a long time I would recommend you to spend 3-4 hours at the village “Gerberoy”. It is an outstanding village with medieval houses. Gerberoy is one of the smallest towns of France, title given in 1202 by King Philip August. The stone paved streets and the XVII th. and XVIII th. Century houses gives you a certain cachet to the town which is listed amongst “les plus beaux villages de France”

If you are interested in French history you could visit the impressive site of Samara. The site retraces 600.000 years of history in the Somme valley. Here you will find two permanent exhibitions, reconstructions of living quarters and demonstrations of prehistoric techniques (pottery, flint cutting, stone cutting, weaving, mosaics etc). In fact here you learn some interesting stuff about the French history.

Way to find my B and B.
Take exit 13. When you leave the motor way, you will meet a roundabout.
Take the direction of Poix de picardie, then go straight on for about one km and look on your right, you will see a sign B and B. Turn right and then keep your left until the sign stop. Cross the main road, you’ll see again the sign B and B ( written in french), follow the direction Croixrault. Go straight on until a new stop sign in the vilage, in front of the “ café”, turn right drive for 60meters and you are arrived at the number 6 on your left, opposite the monument, next to the hairdresser’shop. Ring the bell, and Welcome.
