Is the place to visit, to take it with you in your heart. In any kind of weather this place will blow you away, it will make you fly, it will make you feel so small and yet very fullfilled.

You will be walking where Monet and other artists painted their masterpieces. Be sure to bring your camera and take images at different times of day.

I think that this attraction is the best in Etretat. One can easily see the Falaise d'Aval then keep hiking on top of the cliff to see other features. The hike is so rewarding and gives an excellent opportunity for changing views. However, one should...More

Here you can really experience one of the most wonderful views. It can be high above the sea and quiet dangerous if you are clumsy or not careful.
