If it was placed elsewhere, most probably the monument would not get 5 stars, but its location and the view from there is definitely stunning. Even if it is dedicated to the first attempted, but unsuccessful, direct flight over the ocean, it is good to...More

The view is really nice from here. Standing on a plane of stone you see the Fallaise, the church and the sea. Nice. I quiet liked the little museum as well. Paintimgs, famous visitors and the bathing traditions of the last centuries

If you are visiting Les Jardins D'Etretat then you will see this next to it. I won't take long. There are some boards in English/French showing the history taking place here.

We were visiting the area with other seniors touring France on a river cruise. This was one of our stops and it was just beautiful. We had an opportunity to take great pictures of this wonderful memorial. Very simple but very moving.

Sure, you came up here to see the gorgeous sea scene loved by the Impressionists and everyone else. (Outdoor landscape painting started with the invention of the paint tube, and the Impressionists were early adopters of the technology). You can learn the history and details...More
