One day escape to Etretat

  • One day escape to Etretat

    A day trip to the cliffs of Etretat, an outstanding natural site, where the parade of the cliffs carved into doors, needles and pinnacles will take your breath away. Discover a series of spectacular coastal cliffs, immortalized by the impressionist painter Claude Monet. The chalk ramparts exceed 350 feet above the sea.

    Walk on the beautiful pebble beach which extends between the "Falaise Aval" and the "Falaise Amont". It is certainly one of the most beautiful sites on the English Channel seaside, its wild beauty having inspired writers and painters for centuries.

    Optional 1 at the Gardens of Etretat: they offer the most beautiful view of the sea and the famous needle. A renowned landscaper bought the property to restore it into a fairytale garden which has been opened to the public since 2016. The gardens are part of a set of topiary volumes borrowed from the natural landscape of the Normandy coast.

    Optional 2 with a stop on the way back: if you do not want to go to the Gardens of Etretat:
    Possibility to stop by Rouen (the most beautiful and lively city in Normandy), or:
    Possibility to stop by Pont-Audemer (the Norman Venice with its canals and its typical architecture), and Bec-Hellouin (one of the most beautiful villages in Normandy).
