The Cliffs of Etretat

The cliffs of Etretat are known worldwide for their natural beauty, we have the impression that the cliffs are emerging from the sea … a fascinating image.

The small town of Etretat is a rare beauty. Etretat sits on a stretch of the Normandy coast known as Côte d’Albâtre, meaning coast of alabaster. This name comes from the limestone cliffs that form the beautiful cliffs along this stretch.

A beautiful beach galet separates the Falaise d’Aval another important cliff, « Falaise d’Amont ». The galet beaches of the region are an attraction part for Brazilians, as this type of beach does not exist in Brazil. In the sandy place, the galet beaches are completely formed by smooth, rounded and multicolored stones that may have from the size of marbles to the size of large eggs. The beach at Etretat, duly ornamented the cliffs d’Aval and d’Amont, was portrayed in Claude Monet’s paintings in 1883 and Gustave Courbet in 1869.
