Make a holiday villa in Sainte Marguerite sur Mer your home away from home

Sainte Marguerite sur Mer on France’s Normandy coast is a stunning place to stay and ideal as a base to visit the surrounding area. Close to chalky white cliffs which give this part of Normandy the name of the “Alabaster Coast” and with a pretty pebble beach, the small fishing community is peaceful and welcoming. Sainte Marguerite sur Mer holiday villas are plentiful and are available in a variety of sizes so as there will be something for extended families as well as couples. HomeAway provides a selection of holiday villas in Sainte Marguerite sur Mer, all in close proximity to the region’s main attractions.

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. The channel tunnel is another way with the departing stations being Folkestone and St Pancras. There are also regular bus trips between London and Paris. Once you arrive, a hire car will be the ideal way to get to the places you want to visit from your Sainte Marguerite sur Mer holiday villa.

It is a real home rather than a holiday home, so there is absolutely everything you need. It is however, a home under construction in some parts. So for example although the bathroom is perfectly Ok, it is unfinished in terms of floor and wall tiles. However, since we stayed in August 2016, this work might have been completed. It is in a lovely spot right in the middle of a pine forest. There is a very good village shop and lots of interesting and beautiful things/places to see in the area.

                                                                                                      We were a mixed family group - five adults and five children (aged 18 months to 11 years), celebrating a family birthday. The house was perfect for us in every way. M. & Mme Lenne were prompt, courteous, helpful and efficient with all the (email) planning for our trip. They established trust very quickly, and I had no hesitation in sending the payment to them. M. Lenne speaks good English, and entirely charming on arrival, really setting the tone for our holiday. The house was exactly as described. My own children (3, 7, 10 & 11) like to share a bedroom on holiday, and one bedroom had a substantial, wooden bunk bed as well as two further wooden single beds. They all felt very sturdy and all the kids slept well. We used a cot in another bedroom which worked well. All of the bedrooms were equally lovely - there is no 'weak' bedroom, so the adults had no awkward moments deciding who got which room! The house was spotlessly clean, and very well-equipped. The dishwasher was a real bonus! The large garden was brilliant. We ate lunch outside on mild days, and the kids had plenty of space for football/frisbee/boules etc. There is a large television with some English-language channels if you get a rainy day and need to calm the kids down. We all walked each morning to buy bread etc from the boulangeries of Offranville (a different one seemed to be open each day!), and were very impressed by how rural the house felt, yet also how close to the amenities of Offranville we were. Given we stayed in in the evenings, as my daughter and niece are so young (three years and 18 months respectively), it was wonderful to have such a beautiful period interior in which to spend our time. The quality of the renovations is exceptional, the woodwork is stunning! Dieppe is a short (ten minute) drive away, with a range of restaurants serving everything from pizza to mussels (delicious!) and everything in between. There are a few good beaches very nearby, with a fantastic range of rock pools for inquisitive kids to explore. There are also some amazing rural/woodland walks available from the house itself, which is great when a car journey doesn't appeal. Our children are already pressing us to return to this beautiful property next year. The house is wonderful, and the hospitality the more so. For anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of Normandy from a stunning period house in an ideal location I cannot recommend this house highly enough.
