Belvédère de Frise
The Montagne de Frise affords wonderful views of the Somme valley: its lakes, meanders, magical mists. Plus a life-size history lesson, in the footsteps of the soldier-writer, Blaise Cendrars, who was stationed here during the Great War.
The Montagne de Frise is truly outstanding, with its untamed atmosphere, its wealth of plant and wildlife and great views of the Upper Somme lakes. It is also a place of history and remembrance whose rugged terrain, marked by shell holes and trench networks, still bears the scars of the Battle of the Somme, a major offensive during the First World War. The village of Frise, owners of the site, and Picardy Nature Conservancy have worked together to preserve and develop this site, with the support of many other partners.
The pro’s view :-)
After a walk in this lovely natural setting, you could stay in the area and take a trip on the P'tit train de la Haute Somme (tourist train) or take a leisurely tour of the lock keepers' houses at Eclusier-Vaux-sur-Frise and La-Neuville-les-Bray.
