Seine Maritime gites are a popular choice for people who like to get out in the fresh air hiking, cycling, horseriding or kayaking and enjoying the views and nature of the region. The impressive rock formations in the cliffs along the Falaise d'Etretat coastline are well worth the trek. The main city in Seine Maritime is Rouen; don't miss a visit to the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen, an impressive building that includes the tomb of Richard the Lionheart. The carved façade, stained glass windows and towers have inspired famous artists including Monet, Ruskin and Lichtenstein and it's easy to see why! Rouen is filled with restaurants, shops and markets selling local produce. Try local specialities like cider and calvados, and sample the irresistible chocolates, cakes and pastries.
