The coastal cycle route is part of the EuroVelo 4, linking Kiev in Ukraine with Roscoff at the tip of Brittany, and should eventually provide a route along the Normandy coast from le Tréport to the Mont-Saint-Michel.
This 20km-long EuroVelo 4 stage leads you to the pearl on Normandy’s Côte d'Albâtre, Etretat. The excitement mounts as you approach its sensational cliffs, so famously depicted by Impressionist Claude Monet, and the enchanting old town itself, home to French fictional sleuth Arsène Lupin! But before that, enjoy the green countryside and little towns along the way. Saint-Léonard and Les Loges stand out.
From Les Loges, you could even take the vélorail option to enjoy a gentle arrival in Etretat!
