The Essential
This small seaside resort certainly deserves its nickname of "balcony over the sea": Ault stretches along the hollow of a valleuse (a kind of dry valley "suspended" above the shore), at the end of which a wonderful view of Le Tréport opens up. Standing over the attractive beaches are impressive chalk cliffs that are buffeted by the wind and covered with prairies. The vertiginous view over the sea from the highest point of the village is particularly spectacular.
