Saint Valery Sur Somme condo description

Ault is a coastal town on the English Channel, within 5 minutes of Le Treport, famous for its seafood, and within 20 minutes of La Baie de la Somme and Saint Valery, a medieval village.

Our apartment, nestled in a classic 1896 bourgeois house, has two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with two twins. The main room has a full kitchen, dining area, seating area. You may lose yourself in these views of the sea and the cliffs from all of the windows. The ocean is right across the street, and a sandy beach is a five minute walk. The tides go out for many meters, and allow for great sand castle competitions. After a day at the beach you can eat at one of the local restaurants within walking distance, or you can buy home made pate from the local traiteur.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Situated on the English Channel, on the D19 road, 20 miles (32 km) west of Abbeville, in the southwest of the department of the Somme, Ault possesses chalk cliffs overlooking a beach of pebbles (and sand at low tide). To the south of the town is a large wooded area, the ‘Bois de Cise’, in a valley that leads on to the coast; where authors and artists such as Hugo used to come for quiet retreats. To the north, the cliffs descend to the level of the beach at Onival. The area around the town, the 'hâble d’Ault' was mostly tidal marshland that has been reclaimed from the sea. Cattle, sheep and game are raised here.

                      This little seaside resort certainly deserves its nickname of 'balcony over the sea': Ault stretches along the hollow of a valleuse (a kind of dry valley 'suspended' above the shore), at the end of which a wonderful view of Le Tréport opens up to the south southwest. Standing over the attractive beaches are impressive chalk cliffs that are buffeted by the wind and covered with prairies. The vertiginous view over the sea from the highest point of the village is particularly spectacular.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We a franco american family living in Seattle with historical ties to this region and this village as our last name springs from the name of the county where Ault finds itself. I lived, drove, smelled, experienced every meter of this land that I call my roots. I am very proud of being able to share this beautiful, off the tracks region that is the the Baie de Somme and Upper Normandy.

                      Why the Owner Chose Saint Valery Sur Somme:
                      From each window of the apartment you can see, smell and connect with the ocean that has brought me up. The tides rock you asleep and the Sea birds remind you of the upcoming morning: time to get your croissants and newspaper at the local establishment less than 1 mn walk. While at it; stop at the bar next door, shake hands of locals, grab a coffee at the counter and check your email on the free wifi. The beauty of the cliffs, ocean and beach changes with the tides and the sun and is spectacular to behold.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      French quality of life. Simple, honest, down to earth, unpretentious, a great and healthy gastronomy pulled out of the local wonders that our local fields and ocean produce. Only 2 hours from Paris and yet thankfully worlds apart. A true piece of country beyond the cliches.
