Veules-les-Roses, between sea and countryside

Veules-les-Roses, a quaint little village along the Alabaster Coast, is an absolute gem that you have to see. 

Originally a fishing and weaving village, then a fashionable holiday destination and a meeting place for artists, Veules-les-Roses combines the joys of the sea and the countryside.

If you like authenticity and refinement you will be delighted by the charm of this small seaside resort like no other. Learn more about its history while walking along the banks of the river Veules, the smallest river in France. Along the path called "Champs-Elysées", admire beautiful Norman thatched cottages, gardens full of roses and hydrangeas and the age-old watermills.

Go closer to the seafront and contemplate the lights and colours that have been captured and enhanced by the numerous talented Impressionist artists. At low tide, with buckets and landing nets, go shellfish picking with your family. On your way back, stop on the beach to improvise a delicious picnic with some "Veulaise", the renowned oyster from Veules-les-Roses, raised at sea in a unique combination of fresh and salt water.

Go for a romantic or family jaunt to Veules-les-Roses and treat yourself to a pleasant break.
