The Normandy region
Normandy is made up of five rich and varied counties:- Seine maritime, Eure, Orne, Calvados and Manche. Aumale is within the Seine maritime region of Normandy, approximately, two hours from Paris. In-between the seine valley and channel coast, famous for its dramatic cliff lines, rolling open countryside and the twist and turns of the River Seine. We are on the border of the Picardy or Picardie region:
Normandy, with its proximity to Paris for Disneyland together with a number of fashionable seaside resorts like Dieppe, Hornflour or Tourville along its coast indicate that this region has everything you could wish for; Etretat, Fecamp and Dieppe are three of the coastal areas well worth a mention.
Dieppe is a gem of a town. Famous for its Saturday morning market. Many of the streets in the old town just have to be explored. A majority of these are pedestrianised and it is delightful to view the historic buildings dating back to the17th century on foot. ...soaking in the atmosphere created by an abundance of timbered houses and huge chateaux set in the circuit of a glorious medieval past.
People who have stayed here have been to visit the historical world war II sites in Mont St Michel, Vimy and the Somme. Locally, towns like Rouen and Amiens, are truly places of inspiration. Indeed, Rouen, is known as the jewel in the crown -considered to be the capital of upper Normandy- Itself only half an hours drive from Aumale. The neighbouring county of Picardy (Picardie) also has long sandy beaches by the Somme estuary in the west.
Aumale is a very popular base with Parisians, especially for the beach!
Quiet a historic town itself, with many of the half-timbered houses so characteristic in this region. It's not surprising then that you won't find a single charity shop in the town-it has a diverse range of specality shops like patisserie bakeries, butchers, delicatessens and an anglers accessories shop, which by the way sells the fishing licence (~5 Euros per day).
There seems to have been a deliberate choice to place the only supermarket (Intermarche) just outside town. A tourist office in the centre will keep you updated as to what is going on in the locality.
We are pleasantly amazed by the different things we find to do here. During the summer we found an archery club just near the two lakes and by the villa. We located a delightful horse riding school three miles from Aumale-They have been more than willing to take on the novice rider!
During Summer, we learnt that Aumale has a public heated Open Air Pool in the town centre. The nearest Indoor pools are in the towns of Formarie ~15km away and Grandvillers 20Km-this town has a larger indoor pool.
There is a Quad Biking arena not far from the town.
Eating out in Aumale is affordable as it not only has a pizza and Turkish Kebab restaurant in the centre but there is another pizza place just behind the Ebenezer which is set by the waterfront. This same country road also leads into the town centre.
