Le pays de Caux

Le pays de Caux

All the wealth of the Pays de Caux within your reach!

If our part of Normandy gave inspiration to so many Impressionist artists, we can say that this is partly due to its extraordinary landscape, which combines a sea of ever-changing colours, an indented coastline with hanging valleys, as well as a green and fertile plateau. The Pays de Caux is also characterized by its architecture. You will find typical old buildings with half-timbering, thatch, and walls of flint and pebbles, including farmhouses, manor houses and dovecotes.

Varengeville-sur-Mer

Perched on the cliffs and surrounded by woods, Varengeville-sur-Mer is well-known for its celebrities, its cliff-top church and graveyard, the Ango manor house, and its floral parks (the Bois des Moutiers, the Shamrock Collection and the Vasterival Gardens). Varengeville’s charm is enhanced by lush hydrangeas and narrow roads winding between high green banks.

Sainte-Marguerite-sur-Mer

The Ailly lighthouse, with its 91 steps, offers exceptional views over the cliffs as far as the Bay of the Somme.

Veules-les-Roses

An authentic village in the hollow of a valley leading down to the sea, through which flows the shortest river in France: the Veules (1195 m).

You can stroll along beside the Veules and discover watercress beds, water mills, and flowered cottages.

Saint-Valéry-en-Caux

A pretty and lively fishing port and marina; you can visit the Maison Henri IV, a beautiful old 16th century house used as a venue for exhibitions.

Dieppe

The town with four ports (marina, fishing, commercial and cross-Channel).

There are many sites to explore, including the Castle Museum with its ivories, the Cité de la Mer sea museum, the Casino, the market on Saturday morning, and the churches: Saint Rémy, the Sacré-Cœur, Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours and Saint-Jacques. The town also has many pedestrian streets, a little tourist train, boat rides and a thalassotherapy spa and swimming pool. You can relax on the terraces of the many restaurants and bars.

Offranville

At the heart of the village stands the church, originally built in the 10th century, famous for its twisted steeple. Nature lovers can visit the Parc du Colombier, which contains the William Farcy floral park, dedicated to old rose varieties.

Etretat

Famous worldwide for its exceptional cliffs, the town of Etretat offers several choices of activities such as sea kayaking, Aquabowling, bike-rail and the Parc des Roches public gardens.

Fécamp

Former cod fishing port and capital for Newfoundland fishermen; come to the town of Fécamp to sample its local products and visit the Palais Bénédictine.
