There is much to visit within walking distance of Les Bruyères:
Turn right back on to the rue de l'Aumône, and follow the road to the end where there is a path which runs over the headland to the sea. It's about a 20-minute walk from the house. The cliffs are magnificent. Check the tides if you want to swim, and don't forget that you can see beautiful sunsets there.
Don't forget to explore the Bois des Communes.
The church of St Valéry, where you can see a stained glass window by Georges Braque.
Braque is buried in the clifftop churchyard here, amongst others of note.
The Shamrock Collection - the most important hydrangea collection in the world - is at Varengeville-sur-Mer.
You can join the Avenue Verte at Offranville.
At Hautot-sur-Mer you will find riding stables.
Le Bois des Moutiers is the jewel in the crown of Varengeville-sur-Mer. The talent of Sir Edwin Lutyens and the landscape gardener, Miss Gertrude Jekyll, together with the passion of four generations of the Mallet family, have made this place into a first class tourist and cultural site, internationally recognised for its architectural, botanic and artistic qualities.
