St Valery has a superbly maintained historic district and just to the east of the new town centre are the ruins of the old town walls and the prison, which reputedly once held Joan of Arc. There is an interesting 18th century hospital, the old church of St Martin and some charming architecture to be admired in the local buildings.

Lovely spacious cottage in quiet setting

4 of 5
Very pretty property with lots of space inside. It is situated in a quiet hamlet but you are only 15 minutes drive from the town (for a decent supermarket). There is lots to see and do here - we enjoyed Cayeux sur Mer with its pretty beach huts, St Valery for the river walk to the medieval town and the underground town at Nahours. The owners are welcoming (with a gift of currant jam) and we got by in a mix of English and French ! There were a few extra charges for fuel and bed linen and towels which we hadn’t expected (though one is referenced under tariffs if you look) and you could have paid for cleaning (we didn’t need to) . Overall a lovely holiday which was very relaxing - a great way to recharge your batteries!

Beautiful, comfortable flat, well located

5 of 5
We have just spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay. The flat is lovely and has everything that you need for a week’s stay. It is beautifully decorated and well designed. It’s in easy reach of the very attractive towns of Mers les Bains, Le Tréport and St Valery. The owners (Amelie and Romain) are around if needed for anything and very helpful. Highly recommended.
