VILLA - VIEW OVER THE CLIFFS, THE SEA, THE GOLF, THE VILLAGE - 4 STARS

Etretat Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Villa separated in 2 gites: 230 m²/2500 ft² 8 persons / 110 m²/1200 ft² - 5 peop

Recent and comfortable villa, located in a landscaped park of 5000 m² with centennial pine trees, on the edge of the Parc des Roches.

Close to the beach, view of the sea, the cliffs, the village, the golf course between the trees of the property.

Not overlooked, south and west facing.

High standing.

Awarded 4 stars.

==========================================

Villa built on a classified and protected site, just outside the 'Coastline Protection Area'. That explains its uniqueness, its avant-garde design, the use of traditional materials and advanced building techniques...and therefore, its cost!

==========================================

The villa, thanks to its design, allows different ways of life and a some independence, but also to gather all together to share commune activities and moments. That's why we created two separated gites while proportioning the biggest to be able to cater everybody.

Additionally, at the time of the conception, we built a detached gaming chalet to preserve the quiet of the gites during those activities.

The acoustic and thermal insulation is the creme de la creme and we received in 1987 the highest prestigious label awarding the actions promoting the saving of renewable energy.

It is also a fact that everyone's behaviour greatly influences the savings and efforts to preserve our fossil fuels.

It was also the first ecolabel, even before its official creation 17 years later.

==========================================

The villa can be:

- Rented in its entirety (Big Gite + Small Gite), let 339 m²/ 3700 ft² and can host 12 people.

- Partially rented, let:

- The Big Gite (232 m²/2500 ft²) for 8 people.

- The Small Gite (107 m²/1200 ft²) for 7 people.

Each gite is totally self-contained, and for those renting the house in its entirety, the Big Gite is designed to allow everybody to gather in the living spaces.

==========================================

Two gites for rent: the Big Gite and the Small Gite.

The presentation hereafter is that of the Big Gite. You will find the other on another advert of this site.

==========================================

We aim to satisfy you.

We do not lack imagination and we propose you an accommodation which required much investment. That is also thanks to you that we can preserve and keep it in good state.

My wife was born in Etretat, and our three daughters nearby.

My oldest is married to a man from here, so Etretat became my home.

Welcome and thank you, dear guests.

Alain Doisy de Villargennes purchased this cottage in 1982

We were dreaming to come back in Etretat, where my wife was born.

We bought the land after a case of love at first sight and elaborated the project of this villa with a world-renowned architect. The land was listed, classified and protected, in an area of protection of the shorelines and architectural heritage, close to the sea, with local essences and centennial maritime pine trees, preserved from the 2 world wars.

We could not have imagined the difficulties to elaborate and sell this project, and later to fund it because as you know, a great architect has many ideas and draw big and expensive projects!

We particularly took the extraordinary environment into account to preserve its charm and make it more attractive.

This left some people jealous among the locals and sometimes the guests who do not miss to remind us of our defaults!

So we try to do better and to keep our strong points, which is not always easy!

Please forgive the things that could have bothered you, we will do better next time.

We love our house and Etretat, and it is so good to share what we love.

Our villa is beautiful and lively thanks to you being there.

Enjoy and take care of it.

You are welcome is this exceptional place; it is our pleasure to host you.

Etretat is a crib of the impressionism, a small seaside village with flint and bricks houses characteristic of the Pays de Caux and the Côte d'Albâtre, a seaside resort 2 hours away from Paris, offering many cultural and athletic activities, museums, natural parks...

Gite on the edge of the Parc des Roches. House designed by a world-famous architect on a listed and protected site.

Etretat, Seaside resort, regarded, with Mont Saint-Michel, as one of Normandy's jewels, with:

- The cliffs overlooking the sea with a succession of doors dug by the sea including the famous Aval Door, the Ladies' Bedroom (fairies room), the Castle of the Ghost of the Fréfossé and the mysterious Hollow Needle, puzzle exposed by Arsène Lupin in the novel by Maurice Leblanc.

- The pebble beach heated by the sun which delights the bathers,

- The cove, the divers' dream,

- The ecosystem of this west winds village,

- The golf course and the renowned 7th hole which dives from the plateau to the village like a river of green lava,

- The casino, making the fortune or misfortune of the gamblers or gamers dreaming of becoming rich,

- The family atmosphere of a village centred around a covered market which kept some modesty and with the typical architecture of the houses of flint and bricks from the Pays de Caux.

To enjoy Etretat, you have to take your time, start to really watch things or be immobile, then moving, and then listen to the elusive, the one that comes from far away, the one that is whispered. Let you be carried by the waves crashing against the pebbles which respond by an always different regular rolling. Count the number of waves to guess which ones will be the biggest, or be amazed because there aren't any!

Do you know the Green Flash legend? It occurs shortly after sunset under the Aval Door. Everybody saw it, nobody took a picture. Then Lecoeur had an idea and made it into a chocolate stuffed with green almond pasta, expensive and rare, but so delicious.

Here, Etretat is a sensation. You have to take the time to let this delightful quiet life melt, under the cries of the gulls that do not hesitate to provoke you for some food that they devour between them while bickering.

Etretat is a contrast between a nature both peaceful and ruthless.

The sea is like that. Alfonse Karr wrote: 'If I had to show the sea to a friend for the first time, I would choose to go to Etretat'. The sea gives and swallows. It brings happiness but you should also fear it. On Pentecost day, a spray of flowers is thrown in tribute to all of those she took away. Once again, the delight of a nice feast combines with the memory of sad moments.

Every Thursday, the siren announces the opening of the market. There, you will meet some farmers selling their products, unless you would rather go meet them in their farm to buy milk straight from the cows' or the goats' udders.

And the coastal path along the littoral. Sometimes you have to 'jump the fence', brave the fences of the fields put there by some smarty-pants who put them there to win a few acres that they don't even use!

Etretat, you have to go to a faire amount of trouble, to look for and to dare.

Dare, yes.

'My doors are always open' is a pretty good summary of the secret of Etretat's motto.

We are grateful and happy to welcome you in our beautiful house.

Take care of it.

Dear friends, welcome.

Notes:
The villa can also be rented in its entirety, which offers room for 12 people, and you can enjoy the property and the garden as you please. We also arranged the superior part of the house as a totally self-contained apartment. We knew that from a certain number of people, it was important to be able to preserve different kinds of way of life, and to choose the moments when we wish to come together again. Everyone loves to live as they please while being able to come together for privileged moments. That is what we wanted for this villa. In the same spirit, we designed a games area completely separated from the villa and large enough to preserve the tranquillity of the home and to allow one to thrive without annoying the others. We want to do the same with the garage, and to build a 'Well-being'- Fitness room with spa open onto the nature.
