Criel sur Mer - a pretty seaside resort

Criel sur Mer sits in a privileged position beside the lovely coast of Upper Normandy in northern France. Once a village known mainly for fishing and agriculture, Criel sur Mer's fortunes turned with the creation of its railway station in 1872. Tourism swiftly followed, and Criel sur Mer is now a popular and attractive seaside resort.

Archaeological finds have shown that the village's history dates back at least to Gallo Roman times. However, its heritage sights include many later buildings. Worth a look are the Manor House of Briançon, now home to the Mairie, the 15th century Church of St Aubin, the Château de Chantereine and a 17th century chapel. You can also see the ruins of another chateau and a church.

Shops, restaurants and lots to do

The village and its seaside sister, Criel Plage, offer a good selection of shops and restaurants between them. A traditional market is held every Sunday morning throughout the season, and there are occasional flea markets as well.
