The suggestive spectacle of white cliffs that fall to the sea!

The beautiful Parisian world fell in love with this small fishing village, fascinated by the landscape of white cliffs overlooking the sea, and the beautiful pebble beach. Today, Etretat can rightly be considered one of the most renowned and elegant seaside resorts in the whole of Normandy. It is no coincidence that, over the years, it has been a popular destination for great painters, writers and composers.

Natural beauties are the absolute protagonists of the place. Over all, the wonderful Manneporte, a colossal natural arch.
