AULT

At first from a low height, around thirty meters, the cliffs rise gradually to reach more than eighty meters south of the village.

The cliffs first bend slightly at the level of the town center, which is built on the sides of a valleuse (dry valley), the Main Street of which occupies the bottom.


They bend again at the Bois de Cise, which allowed a wood to form and then a hamlet of villas to settle. From the top of the cliffs, the view is exceptional.

Towards the south, you can see the entrance to the port of Le Tréport and, much further, the point of Ailly with its lighthouse which is located beyond Dieppe.
