Ideally located halfway up the Étretat cliffs, this smart, modernish hotel is perched amid acres of manicured cliffside parkland. The guest rooms are simple and comfortable (refurbished in 2013, some have parquet flooring), but the real beauty is right outside your bedroom window, thanks to views of la mer so wonderful they would have Debussy humming in no time. The gastronomic restaurant specializes in fresh fish and seafood platters, ranging from simple delights
such as the sole stew to the full-scale symphonie of fish. Request a table near the window to enjoy panoramic coastal vistas.
