In northern France, now united in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, under the name Hauts-de-France, Picardy includes the departments of Oise and Somme. Picardy owes its name to its workers, the laborers: in Picard, the Picard name means laborers. This region has a strong identity because of the historical opposition of its close neighbors: Île-de-France and Pas-de-Calais. The Parisians scorned them as laborers and farmers, while the other rival named them because of their French and non-Flemish language. Finally, the Picards known for their courage in famous battles, also became famous for their stubborn character, headstrong. Close to the capital, traditional, and proud of its culture, Picardy is an authentic space, without embellishment, which will let you discover many impressive natural areas. For a successful vacation, Airotel has chosen to install camping areas in La Baie de Somme, Beauvais and Chantilly. A focus on flagship locations in Picardie.
