Embrace Veule-les-Roses one of the prettiest villages in Normandie which merges all the charms from both seaside and countryside along the 1149 meters of the Veules river.
Listen to the melody of the water in the wheel of the water mill, have a walk on the paths along the Veules, discover the watercress at the source, choose your seafood at the fishermen’s return, enjoy the fine sandy beach at low tide, the sea spray from the landing stage and the panorama from the cliffs. Go wander in the streets, the paths or the caves called by evocative names : that will turn out to be a travel in time and History in the mind of Maupassant.
You will be delighted by both the architecture from the thatched cottages to the seaside villa from the early 20 th century and the fishermen’s houses, and the landscapes with the groves, the secret gardens filled with flowers and especially roses.
The past lives on in Veules-les-Roses…
Veules-les-Roses finished 6th of the most beautiful village in France (Election 2013 on France 2) …. It’s not by chance !
