Words cannot describe this unique setting, high above the town with the famous cliffs in the background . . . do not hesitate to make this part of your itinerary if you are ever in the area!

Les Jardines d'Etretat is a beautiful and esoteric garden. There are works of art in the garden, but the garden itself is a work of art. You cannot have a feel of this garden looking at photos, they don't do justice to it. You should...More

It has to be seen: so neat! You feel you are inside a piece of art... The bushes and trees are trimed at perfection! It takes at least one hour to visit up and down and up again!

We hadn't planned on going here but are we glad we did. What a phenomenal garden of perfectly manicured topiary, sculpture as well as hanging pieces. As you wend your way through the paths, each new view offers another "Wow, look at that!" response. Part...More

Heard about it a lot! Amazing place, mysterious and magical views! Could pass hours watching the cliffs. Had a good weather and wonder if during storms the views are splendid?

Great place for taking a walk around this exotic artistic garden, taking some sun and enoying the view from a distance of the cliffs of Etretat. The garden is full of heads which seem to emerge from the ground, all with different expressions.

Response from Simon P | Reviewed this property |
The road up to the gardens is very tight and the advice to park at the official site and walk or take the train is good. The climb is 340 steps, about 110 metres, so you need to be moderately fit.

There is parking at the top of the cliff next to the garden. There is no wheelchair access in case you need it.
