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.

The owners were very friendly and welcoming, providing a lot of useful information before and during our stay. The house was very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Our 3 year old was very happy playing in the garden on the swings, with all the games and waving to the cows in the field. The house is close to a small town with good shops and a train station which we used one day to go to Rouen. We were very lucky with the weather and visited a different beach nearly every day. We are definitely planning to stay at this house again as it is a great house in a very good location and there was a lot that we wanted to do in the area but ran out of time.

The apartment is wonderfully equipped, and is immaculately clean. Dieppe is not very fashionable, but is a friendly town with a lot of character, interesting shopping, and excellent restaurants. We'll certainly be back... again.
