Domaine Saint Clair
Hotel in Etretat
Hôtel Domaine Saint Clair Le Donjon in Normandy
Located in Normandy, two hours from Paris, Etretat is a charming seaside resort on the Alabaster Coast. Its bright, majestic cliffs, unique in the world, have been celebrated throughout the ages by poets, painters and writers.
Take a trip back in time to meet famous personalities of the Belle Époque, where refinement, elegance and stylish living were a given. Nestled in a beautiful green and picturesque park overlooking the resort of Etretat, the cliffs and the sea, the Domaine Saint Clair Le Donjon, a hotel in Etretat, revives the splendour of the past.
Composed of an Anglo-Norman style castle from the nineteenth century and a seaside villa, our Domaine is a truly exceptional place to stay. Stay in one of 21 rooms (link to page) and suites bearing the names of different characters: Gustave Flaubert, Marcel Proust, Guy de Maupassant, Claude Monet, Sarah Bernhardt, but also a retired major, a doctor or a dandy... Each room bears the stamp and personality of the character who inspired it, with a special atmosphere, fabrics, antique furniture and colours. The rooms tell their story, maybe a little romanticised, and bring them back to life for the duration of your stay, a reminder of a time when Etretat and the local area were the holiday destination of choice for many artists and writers.
The Domaine Saint Clair Le Donjon and its five plush, cosy lounges provide a unique setting, a faithful reflection of the French “art of living” and an era when people knew how to take their time. It’s an ideal place to relax, read, have a drink, play a game of cards or just listen to the crackling fire in the hearth on winter days, sometimes admiring the view of the sea, the village and the cliffs... A timeless world like something from a novel, to give you a break from everyday life and the stress of big cities.
Designed, decorated and furnished in keeping with 19th-century traditions, complete with old-style paving, our patio is at the heart of the estate. It hosts receptions and other events (link to seminar page) held at our hotel in Etretat.
For gourmets, the chef serves gourmet cuisine (link to restaurant page) prepared using local and seasonal products combining tradition and innovation. From March to October, the chef takes fruit, vegetables and herbs from our kitchen garden of 350m2 to give his food an authentic flavour.
From the restaurant’s dining rooms, you can enjoy wonderful views of the sea.
