Who would have thought that writing a post about Étretat could be this…demanding?
It is true that for the past 20 minutes I’ve been sitting in front of my computer trying to conjure up words – only to realized that I have reached my limit. The natural beauty of Étretat simply cannot be described (by this blogger anyway). You must go and see for yourself.
But before I call it quit, you may wonder, what is it in Étretat that makes it so……
Well, first of all, there’s the beach.
where you must NOT remove a pebble!
Secondly, there are these white chalky cliffs. Two of the most famous being Falaise d’Amont
And Falaise d’Aval
(Oops, sorry about the photobomb)
So what’s so special about these cliffs?
Well, Claude Monet painted them.
Eugène Boudin painted them.
And so could you!
But if brush and easel is not your cup of tea, you may take a stroll on top of the cliffs.
where there is a chapel and a monument to explore
Or simply pause and snap a photo of the breathtaking view.
So this is Étretat – one of the most beautiful natural wonders in France.
After a somewhat disappointing morning in Fécamp, it is this view that saved our day!
