Overview

Ault is a village set on chalk cliffs, overlooking the English Channel. Not far from the Baie de Somme, this part of the French coast is "great walking territory", according to The Daily Telegraph, and is where Channel 4's French thriller "Witnesses" was filmed.

Villa Aultia is 20 minutes' drive from St-Valery-sur-Somme, where William the Conqueror set sail for England in 1066. Rough Guides calls it the "jewel of the coast" with its "medieval citadelle and brightly painted quays". The Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme, a historic steam railway that circles the bay March-November, is a 20-minute drive away. Le Crotoy, the coastal town where Jules Verne wrote "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", is around 30 minutes' drive away, and it's just a little further to the Parc Ornithologique du Marquenterre -- a bird watcher's dream.

Dieppe ferry terminal is 45 minutes' drive away. Calais (ferry and Eurotunnel) is an hour and a half drive away, and the hotel is two hours' drive from Paris.

The hotel has 15 boutique rooms -- some decorated in Baroque style, others with a contemporary look. All have a view of the sea or the garden. Luggage storage is available and rooms with easy access, for people with reduced mobility, are also available upon request. Wi-Fi is free.
