Étretat Travel Guide: 110 reviews and 367 photos
chbuchie from Antwerp asked for digitized paintings of Etretat on his beautiful Etretat page. I never thought of digitizing a painting and putting it here so I thank him for the idea.
We started painting last year when my husband retired and a photo I took at Etretat was made to be a project. I've seen other paintings and photos with the same boat so it must have been there for a very long time. The kitty is mine and just found its way into the painting. How could that happen?
Go check chbuchie's Etretat page. It is beautiful.
Here's the original photo I used for the painting. There were plenty of boats there but this was the most picturesque.
There were people walking along the top of the falaise and there is a footpath up from the town.
If you turn around and the famous arch falaise (d'Aval) is at your back, you have a lovely view of the Normandy coast. This goes on for miles and is incredibly beautiful.
The sun came out later and I got the same shot with blue skies and fluffy white clouds. It's a fabulous place to take photos, hike, walk along the shore . . . enjoy nature.
- Pros:Stunning scenery, quaint town, lovely hikes, fresh air
- Cons:I couldn't stay forever . . .
- In a nutshell:A beautiful place to go and enjoy the very best nature has to offer.
I've been painting a bit longer now and decided to try Etretat again. Here is the latest painting . . . without the cat. more travel advice
If you enjoy fishing, you'll have plenty of company along the shore at Etretat. You can surf fish and your family can... more travel advice
