L’Aiguille Creuse, conveniently close to Le Havre, is named after a rock, alleged to be hollow, near Etretat. The site is set back from the Côte d’Albâtre in the village of Les Loges, between Etretat and the fishing port of Fécamp. There are 135 good sized grassy pitches, slightly sloping in parts and divided by neat hedges. Of these, 78 are for touring, all with 10A electricity and 14 also with water and drainage. The village is within easy walking distance and buses run from here to Fécamp, Etretat and Le Havre. An alternative and more adventurous way of getting to Etretat is by booking a rail buggy and pedalling yourselves down the hill – you are then brought back up to the village by road in a ‘petit train’.
The picturesque villages of Etretat and Yport were an attraction for the Impressionist painters and have largely remained unspoiled. The cliffs at Etretat continue to attract artists and photographers, and one way to enjoy them is from a boat - there are trips from Fécamp passing beneath the famous arches or become a ‘crew member’ on a traditional sailing boat. Fécamp has many festivities connected with the sea and offers various conducted tours including one of the WW2 bunkers and the military hospital buried in the cliffs. Many will enjoy a visit to the distillery and cellars of the Palais Bénédictine. There is also plenty to appeal to younger visitors in the area.
