Where is it?
Veules-les-roses is one of France's 100 prettiest villages and in our view the most picturesque seaside town within striking distance of Paris, where we live most of the year.
Take a look at www.veules-les-roses.fr for more info.
A sandy beach with beach huts, cafes, a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the sea and a play area for children is five minutes walk from our house. A sailing club offers lessons and hires out small catamarans and windsurfers.
Veules also has tennis courts, a restaurant listed in the Michelin guide, and numerous artists studios.
There is a pony club in a neighbouring village.
For practical purposes, Veules has as old-fashioned butcher, baker, grocery store, post office, newsagent, pharmacy, hairdresser and doctor's surgery. There is a street market selling fresh produce Wednesday mornings, and local fishermen sell their catch on the seafront every day of the week.
Veules is great for anyone coming from the UK. The village is just a 20 minute drive south of Dieppe, where there are several ferries a day to Newhaven, England.
The surounding countryside is lush and green and excellent for walks, cycling and horseriding. There are lots of historic villages and towns to explore.
St Valery en Caux with its marina, cinema and seafront casino is just down the road. Rouen, with its famed cathedral is less than an hour's drive away. Paris is two and a half hours by car.
