Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Seine-Maritime, France your home away from home

The department of Seine-Maritime in Normandy, France is a great place to go on holiday from the UK. It is remarkably easy to reach, with a delightfully relaxed atmosphere and enough entertainment to keep any family amused whilst they stay in a Seine-Maritime property. From peaceful beaches to dramatic Norman castles, Seine-Maritime offers it all.

Things to do on holiday in Seine-Maritime, France

The beaches of Seine-Maritime are very important assets for the region’s tourist industry. There are many great beaches along the ocean carved coastline, and like regions of the south coast of England, there are some remarkable geological features to be marvelled at. Probably the most frequented tourist beach is Etretat, which combines a glorious beach, quaint, half timbered town and stunning cliff scenery.

Due to the long and troublesome history of Seine-Maritime, there are some great monuments to past eras. The Norman castle in Arques-La-Bataille is probably the most impressive historic site, but there are plenty to discover from a holiday rental property in Seine-Maritime.

The flat Caux Plateau in the south of the department is a magnet for cyclists. Touring the department on a bicycle is a superb way to see the sights and discover some of the finest castles, chateau and farmhouses in the department, and gives you an excuse to really indulge in the glorious gastronomy which the area is famed for.

Places to holiday in Seine-Maritime, France

The capital of Seine-Maritime, Rouen, is a historic town offering both contemporary facilities and superbly preserved and presented monuments like the 13th Century gothic Cathedral and ancient town bridge. However, it is the Parc Zoologique just outside the town is the largest single attraction for family holidays.

Dieppe is the most intriguing town in Seine-Maritime. If you have a day to fill whilst on holiday in Seine-Maritime, Dieppe provides plenty of things to do and see. The narrow, cobbled streets have a distinctly Norman feel, and hide a wealth of boutiques and restaurants. The pebble beach at the front of the town is not the best in the region, but for much of the summer, it is lined by a huge funfair which is hard for children and adults alike to ignore.

Weather in Seine-Maritime, France

Seine-Maritime has a similar climate to England, but due to its location is slightly warmer all year round. Summer sees daily temperatures reach the mid 20’s (°C) daily, but in July and August, temperatures during the height of the day can reach 30°C.

Flights to Seine-Maritime, France

Reaching a Seine-Maritime property is relatively easy, despite there only being one direct flight from the UK. If you would like to fly, Skysouth provide a flight from Shoreham (ESH) to Caen (CFR). However, it is probably easier to catch a ferry to Le Harve or Dieppe, or catch the Eurostar to Calais and the TGV onwards to Le Harve or Rouen.

house with a view!

4 of 5
We had a wonderfull weekend in Fécamp! The house was like we expected. Very spacious and comfy. And what a view! Really a view to die for :) The contact with the owners was very easy, and they are very reactive. If we had a question, we always got a prompt answer. Environment of Fécamp is really pretty. From the house, you can easily walk to the bakery and the butchery, what is very convenient in the mornings. Bakery is also open on Sundays whole day! A walk to the port or the city center is also not far (be prepared to walk up on your way back). We would recommend this property to family and friends without hesitation.

Pleasant stay near Dieppe

4 of 5
The Aubépines is in a quiet rural location with views over the valley. Cattle in adjacent field and geese and chickens in garden next door. Easy access up newly tarmaced drive with parking at rear of house for one large SUV vehicle. Property in reasonable condition. Ample seating in lounge and dining area. Comfortable double bedroom on ground floor (there was only 2 of us staying) but lacking in wardrobe space. TV via Sky satellite kept dropping out. Only 2 DVDs available for grown-ups. Unfortunately there is no wi-if in the property. The kitchen is fairly well equipped although we missed a dishwasher. Shower was hot with good water pressure. Garden a bit untidy in places especially the back garden which is dominated by an overgrown tree. Location is a very suitable base for exploring Normandy and the Alabaster Coast with some good restaurants nearby. The town of Auffay, a few minutes away by car, has rail station with free parking and good service to Rouen - it also has an interesting Friday market. Our greeting by Nadine, the key holder, was warm and welcoming. The deposit was refunded promptly. We had an enjoyable week in September, with good weather and feel that the house was good value.

This is a great little apartment in a lovely little seaside town.

5 of 5
We stayed here for 10 days in August 2016. It's a great little apartment. Lovely sunny terrace. Plenty of space for the 3 of us. The kitchen was really well equipped, with everything you could need. The terrace gives some private outside space with a view over the trees to the sea. Maxence was a great host, very helpful and friendly. Made sure we were comfortable and found us some deck chairs for sitting in the garden. He also supplied plenty of towels and all linen for the beds. It's about a 5 minute walk down to the beech and the restaurants - all of which were good and all have childrens menus. There's a bakery in the town and a small supermarket - which isn't that well stocked, so we used 2 that are about 10 mins drive away - one in Canx Barville and the other on the way into St Valery en Caux. There's mini golf, tennis courts and a sandy play park for kids to enjoy in the town. There's also other children's activities on the seafront in St Valery en Caux - about 10 mins away. We also spent a day at Lac du Caniel, around 15 mins away - which is a water sports park, with lots of other activities for kids. The town had it's summer festival when we were there and although we missed the day activities because we were in Paris (which is a straight forward 2 1//2 hour drive) we very much enjoyed the evening concerts and fireworks. We had a great holiday in this part of Normandy and would definitely recommend this property to others.
