The Authie valley is named after the river that shaped it. It crosses into two administrative areas: Nord Pas-de-Calais and Picardy; and into two French departments: Pas-de-Calais and the Somme. It includes several natural areas: The Pays de Montreuil and Pays de Ternois in the north and Pays de Ponthieu and Pays d'Amiénois in the south. 157 communes are established here.
