Étretat The Essential
Highly recommended
Étretat, an elegant seaside resort some 200km from Paris, owes its popularity to its characteristic lofty cliffs, so it is hardly surprising that numerous writers, painters and film-makers have found inspiration here! Maupassant, who spent his childhood here, wrote these fitting words: "The beach, whose celebrated beauty has been so often illustrated by painters, seems like some spectacular set-decoration, with its two splendid cliff faces known as the doors".
