On my trip through Normandy, I stopped for half a day in Etretat, a small town on the northern coast of France, famous for its coastal scenery and white cliffs. Densely populated in summer months, Etretat in late December is a peacefully pastoral place. For the past two centuries, it attracted well-known painters, such as Claude Monet and Gustave Courbet, as well as writers, Guy de Maupassan and Gustave Flaubert among others.
