Étretat is a French commune and seaside resort in the Seine-Maritime department in the Normandy region. It is very popular with tourists. Étretat is best known for the steep cliffs with their extraordinary rock formations that frame the town on both sides. The cliffs are essentially made of white chalk and flint.


Tour of the city

The Manoir de la Salamandre is located in the main street near the market hall. It is one of the oldest buildings in the town. It originally stood at 50 Grande rue in Lisieux. It was dismantled there in 1889 and rebuilt in Étretat and is now a hotel.

The Clos Lupin in the rue Guy de Maupassant was the home and working retreat of Maurice Leblanc. The writer bought the 19th century Anglo-Norman style villa in 1918 and lived there for 20 years. Today it houses the museum Le Clos Arsène Lupin, Maison Maurice Leblanc.
