Mr. Le Guillard


the savage

The narrow, colorful streets of Villerville, a characterful village with a picturesque town, descend towards the sea and its two beaches: Graves beach to the west and Bains beach to the east. The latter is not accessible at high tide but you can walk along it on the dyke which dominates it and observe the steep cliffs of the Roches Noires.

Not to be missed!

Gallop at the foot of the Roches Noires

Partly classified as a "Sensitive Natural Area", the Roches Noires extend over 4 km, between Trouville-sur-Mer and Villerville. Riders will be able to see the more or less steep cliffs, vegetation, reefs, wooded areas, and with a little luck, fossils.

Stroll on the boardwalk

450 meters long, the Villerville dike allows you to walk below the village built on the side of the cliffs, along the beach at low tide or along the water's edge when the tide is high and it disappears almost completely. .

Parc des Graves, from the top of the cliff to the sea

From the Parc des Graves, a descent to the sea from the top of the Roches Noires and a network of trails have been developed. There is a remarkable flora: rare and wild plant species, vestiges of the pleasure gardens of yesteryear, as well as recent plantations and ponds. Peaceful place to stroll, it is also a place to rest and have fun: children's playground, picnic tables and pétanque courts are waiting for you.
