Fodor's Review

From the look of this charming, ivy-covered, Anglo-Norman château—complete with storybook tower, private park, and lovely sea vistas—it is easy to understand why Monet, Proust, Offenbach, and other greats accepted invitations here; built overlooking Étretat by a rich Parisian couple in 1862, the Belle Époque house has guest rooms that are spacious, comfortable, quiet, and individually furnished, with the emphasis on "individual"—vast swaths of red fabric, decorator

mirrors, and antique gramophones are some flamboyant accents, while other rooms are stylish enough for Maison Française. For a spectacular view, request the Sarah Bernhardt suite, the Impératrice Eugénie room, or the Liane de Pougy room. In the evening repair to the cozy, romantic restaurant overlooking the sea; after feasting on the views, you can savor Chef Olivier Foulon's fine gastronomic cuisine, featuring "incredible edibles" from the hotel's organic herb and vegetable gardens. Little wonder that rooms are reserved on a half-board basis on weekends.
