Houlgate, known as "the pearl of the Côte Fleurie"...
This city has managed to retain its Belle Epoque charm with its 300 villas built in the mid to late 19th century, in eclectic and neo-Norman styles. As a result, the resort is now recognised as a "Model of seaside architecture". Houlgate also offers you an alternate face by way of its cliffs, the "Falaises des Vaches Noires", that extend over 6 km and reach 100 metres at their highest point. Classified as a site of scientific and scenic interest, it brings happiness to walkers, scientists and fossil-lovers alike.
This natural setting and unique architecture has given the resort international renown.
Right nearby, you can also discover: Trouville, Deauville, Honfleur, the D-Day beaches, the Bayeux Cathedral, the Lisieux Basilica, the American cemetery, the Mémorial de Caen, Le Mont Saint-Michel, the cliffs of Étretat, the Cider Route, Norman Switzerland…
The D-Day beaches: history has left its mark on these beaches with poignant traces. Le Mont Saint Michel: 1hr 40 mins away by car at the heart of an immense bay, this magnificent site is one of the most visited in France. Known as "The Wonder", Victor Hugo once said of it: "Le Mont-Saint-Michel is for France what the Great Pyramid is for Egypt". The cliffs of Etretat are a site unique in the world. Spectacular and monumental. Norman Switzerland: 1 hour away by car, between Calvados and Orne, rolling lush countryside awaits you. On the agenda: canoe-kayaking, paragliding, hiking, mountain biking...
