iHi - Independent-hotels.info -  North-east France

 Covid-19 info  France is back open for business again but the virus has not gone away. It could still come back. Hotels, large and small, are bound by strict sanitation rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as zero-risk. The risks are, nonetheless, mathematically smaller in smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. Many of the small hotels listed on iHi are in small towns and villages, or even out in the back of beyond, where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.

Hauts de France region

The Hauts-de-France region is made up of the two former regions which were Nord - Pas-de-Calais and Picardy.
Nord - Pas de Calais, with its capital Lille, is the most northerly part of France, lying between the English Channel, the North Sea and the Belgian border. The eastern half of the region, French Flanders, is mostly quite flat land and a heavily populated area that was once France's industrial heartland.
The Lille - Roubaix area has a number of first-class art galleries. The western part of the region is more rural, with gentle undulating hills and valleys, small towns and coastal resorts.  This area has been in the strategic heart of Europe since the middle ages, and was once famous for its cloth and textiles.

Picardy  capital Amiens, is a largely rural area, hilly in the west, largely flat agricultural land in the east. The south of the region very much gravitates towards Paris, which is easily accessible by train from Amiens and other towns.

Grand-Est region

Champagne Ardenne  - capital Chalons en Champagne, biggest city Rheims, is a largely agricultural part of France, with is world famous vineyards in the south of the region, large expanses of open farmland in the middle, and the forests of the Ardennes in the north, near the Belgian border.
