“What fascinates me is the character of the people. The Picards have always had a willingness to get back up again and move forward. Just a year after the war broke out, Amiens hired an architect to start preparing the reconstruction. It's this ability to look to the future that impresses me, this courage, this love for life. Picards aren't arrogant or interested in appearance. We've made lots of friends here, many more than we had in Italy. The Picards might not seem very approachable at first, but when you've earned their trust, you know that it’s for good and extremely sincere. Picardy is much like its people: it has a hidden internal beauty that you need to look for. People that get to know the region often say that a holiday in Picardy is like a treasure hunt! In Paris, for example, everything is laid out before you, the monuments are right before you. Here the challenge is quite different. You need to look up to see the history written on the walls, hunt for clues on the façades of the buildings and listen to the locals speak about their region. Picardy is a region where you can take your time, which is the luxury we can offer. Nowadays, we want everything, right now, so it's nice to know there is still a place where you can really take your time and savour every moment.”
