Etretat

Where the white cliffs plunge into 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 it can rightly be considered one of the most renowned and elegant seaside resorts of the whole of Normandy. It is no coincidence that, over the years, it has been a popular destination for great painters, writers and composers. One more reason to do at least a visit, here. Not to mention the Manneporte ....
