Prices start from €108.50 per person.

Do you want to get closer to nature? Do you have an adventurous streak? We have created the perfect countryside weekend for you, just a few kilometres from Le Havre!

A dash of history, a few drops of geography and a sprinkling of ecology... and voilà, you have the perfect recipe for complete immersion in this estuary nature reserve, surrounded by reeds and plants that have managed to adapt to this particularly saline habitat. But the Seine estuary jealously guards certain treasures, only revealed at low tide. Come and make the most of the moment when the water recedes to discover the residents of the marshes.

Spend the night in a shelter in the Château du Bec, where there is no electricity, and definitely no Wi-Fi! Everything is eco-friendly, from the wood burning heating systems to the compost toilets. There’s no running water, so it’s up to you to heat up the water on the wood-burning stove for your shower. Totally immersed in the forest, you will be transported to a piece of paradise in another time. 

The shelter is a wooden cabin, perched on the side of a hill with a 4 m-high, overhanging terrace, with magnificent views over the pond and the back of the Château du Bec. 


Like everything worth doing, you have to make a bit of an effort to get there (100m of steep incline or a 250m gentle slope through the woods). Don’t forget your boots and rucksacks!

The interior decoration will transport you to a mountain hut - leave your worries in the car park and come and be Robinson Crusoe for a night. This unusual accommodation will not stop you from having a delicious breakfast at the Château, however!

Visit suggestions: 

We also offer a walk through the Hanging Gardens, which contains over 3000 plant species across 17 hectares. A romantic stroll through plants imported from across the world is the perfect place for a unique escape.

Make a detour to see the Sandouville and Saint-Vigor-d’Ymonville viewpoints, which overlook the Seine estuary at an altitude of 100m and offer breath-taking views.
