Things to do

From churches to harbours to places to relax, there will be something everyone can enjoy when visiting Sainte Marguerite sur Mer. The holiday homes in Sainte Marguerite sur Mer are an excellent choice for discovering the best of Normandy.

-Les Jardins le Vasterival are a favourite with all visitors, not just green fingered garden lovers. There is plenty to see including hellebores, maples, hydrangeas and conifers.

-Dieppe is a place that deserves to be seen in full and while much is only from the 18th Century, the buildings are spectacular. It’s an easy trip being less than 15 kilometres from most holiday villas in Sainte Marguerite sur Mer. Literature lovers can visit the Café des Tribuaux which was frequented by many famous writers and artists. As expected there are a number of churches including Saint-Remi and Saint-Jacques. One building surviving since the 15th century is the medieval chateau that is now the Musee de Dieppe. It houses ivories and works by Renoir and Delacroix. After the culture tour there are restaurants at the harbour and a beach but it only shows sand at low tide.

-Saint-Valery-En-Caux is a better option for a day at the beach than Sainte Marguerite sur Mer if you prefer sand to pebbles. It is well looked after and has become a vibrant resort with facilities able to cope with many visitors. Thanks to the floral displays it is considered to be a 4* ville fleurie. The tourist office is a pleasure to see as the “Henry IV house” is half timbered in the traditional style. On less sunny days there is a casino and swimming pool. To keep the historical theme, there is the Church of Saint Valery from the 15th C and the lighthouse decked out in green and white.

-Fecamp is the place for dramatic scenery and is a popular day trip from Sainte Marguerite holiday villas. Tourism is growing but fishing is still the main economic activity. Benedictine liquor is made here so a trip to the distillery will be in order. As expected there are historical places to visit such as the 12th Century Abbatiale Church of Saint-Trinity and the ruins of the Palace of the Dukes of Normandy.

-Clères Zoo will enthral children and adults alike. There are mainly birds – estimated to be around 1800 - and 200 animals. The zoo is about 37 kilometres from Sainte Marguerite but it’s worth the day trip especially as it is widely accepted that Cleres Zoo houses one of the best bird collections in the world.

The Weather in Sainte Marguerite sur Mer

Average temperatures range from 8°F in the winter, to 21°F through the summer. Rain is more common in the winter although there is always the risk of some during the summer months.

Getting to Sainte Marguerite sur Mer

The most popular and easiest way to get here is by ferry to Normandy. The main routes are from Portsmouth, Weymouth and Dover.

Lots of local shops, bars and eating places nearby. Good parking on road outside. Well equipped but lacked a radio and access to English Channel on T.V. Large apple noticeboard in kitchen for local markets, wifi and refuse collection days. We overlooked this and had to phone owner for wifi access. Good base for sightseeing. Dieppe Town Centre is very busy especially on market days, Saturday being the largest. Lovely bathroom and electric shutters to the rear of the property are excellent. Owner explained she still has the old wooden shutters in the 2 front bedrooms. Would recommend.

We did not know quite what to expect when we arrived but we were certainly not disappointed. The whole property seemed as though it had only just undergone a total makeover and was bright, clean and very welcoming. We particularly enjoyed having our own piece of garden to sit out in during the long summer evenings (daytime temperatures reached 34 degrees centigrade). Most evenings we were joined by Karine's dog (Fiji?) which seemed to enjoy our company and played a good game of football. The gite was very comfortable, well furnished and met all our holiday needs though we would have liked a few more large wine glasses as well as some beer glasses. But these were only minor points and in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the house and its surroundings. The gite itself is part of a larger house and is surrounded by farmland with a pond for ducks close by. We were all delighted with the atmosphere of being away from passing traffic and the bustle of town life. However the nearest town and market is only a short drive away and provides a plentiful supply of local produce. Sadly our stay of just under a week was far too short for us to see all that we wanted and we hope to return in the not too distant future.
