Certainly one of the most charming town in the region with a terrific beach and wide views of the cliffs. Walks along "le Veule", the smallest river in France. Visit the 12th Century church, the watercress pond, and visit le Relais des Artistes, a great shop run by friends Serge and Paula.
Visit by all means le Bois des Moutiers. The House was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, and the gardens and park by Miss Gertrude Jekyll. The park has an extensive collection of rare trees and shrubs in a series of valleys running down to the sea. Varengville is also famous for its church, with its stained-glass windows by Georges Braque. Claude Monet painted extensively here.
The ferry boats sail all year round from Dieppe to New Haven, a leisurely four hour crossing. The Castle Museum has a number of collections : seascapes, ivories carved by local craftsmen as far back as the XVIth century, paintings by Boudin, Lebourg and Pissaro, prints by Braque. Take a walk along the seaside, or see the shops along le Grand Rue.
France's second port, it was founded in 1517 by Renaissance king François Ist. It is located at the mouth of the Seine river on the Channel. Visit the Musée Malraux, the second largest collection of Impressionist art in France.
The beach at "Veules" has just about everything, and is great for swimming and for long walks. It has a pier that juts out into the ocean from where you can take photos of the cliffs. There is a recreational area and swimming pool for the kids, a snack bar nearby, and lots of other amusements to keep them occupied. Sunsets at Veules are spectacular.
By bycicle you can reach the beach at St. Aubin sur Mer from Le Bel Event in 15 minutes. There's plenty of parking, games for the kids, and a long walkway that covers the whole seafront. At low tide the beach stretches far out into the sea.
Another great beach with a lighthouse at the end of the port. Have a drink on the terrase at the Casino. There's a pool for children and games also. The views of the cliffs are excellent. There are many pubs and restaurants in town.
The tennis court at Le Bel Event is open to all clients free of charge. It was installed in 1994 and is in excellent condition. I has a "quick" surface that dries in about a half hour after the rain stops. The court is surrounded by pine trees on the north that cut down the wind considerably. There is also a basketball hoop. We can supply some raquets and balls, but it may be preferable to bring your own.
