It's a cute little chapel, built in a modern-ish 20th century style that looks more fitting for Iceland than France. The location is absolutely breathtaking, high on the cliffs above Etretat with a beautiful view of the bay and the cliffs on the other side....More

This small chapel appears to be in good condition. Unfortunately, we went there on May Day (May 1) and it was closed. We would like to return sometime when the chapel is open. The views from nearby the chapel are very good.

I rate this a bit lower than the cliffs, because the church is quite disappointing. It is a very tiny church, with nothing special about the building itself. The location on the other hand, is amazing! You will have amazing views over the town and...More

Beautiful and calm - the best place to take in the ocean views and views of the cliff, while also being able to collect your thoughts. Truly serene and gorgeous. You can drive to the top - or walk up from the beach (we took...More
