From the Scie Valley to Bernouville Woods
Warning: Unsecured hours
A lovely three hour hike between land and sea.
This route passes through the three hamlets that make up the municipality. It leads from the valley to the sea, where you will discover the little resort town of Pourville-sur-Mer and its beach enclosed within two cliffs. The next part of the loop will take you to the Bernouville coastal woods, a natural, unspoilt area at the edge of the Alabaster Coast.

Man erzählt sich, dass der Erzbischof auf der Flucht vor dem Zorn Heinrichs II. von England im Jahr 1164 nach Pourville kam und dort die Messe las. In dieser Kirche wurden gemischte Ehen (zwischen Katholiken und Protestanten) geschlossen, die in Dieppe verboten waren.
Follow the site’s main trail on your left to discover, along the route of the GR21, a wide variety of forest species (beech, oak, maple, wild cherry, sweet chestnut and more), a wealth of ferns typical of wet woodland zones and relatively untapped by man, as well as the remains of the 11th century Château des Comtes d’Hautot. The property of the Princes of Monaco since 1789, these ruins were “donated” to the local population so houses could be built in the surrounding area, which now form the hamlet of Bernouville.
This time, walk in the direction of Petit-Appeville, which will lead you back to Saint-Rémy Church, the hike’s starting point.
