A short walk in Le Tréport

A little stroll in the city center of Le Tréport, the closest seaside resort to Paris.

Le Tréport was a great seaside resort thanks to the Le Tréport-Paris railway line built from 1872. For a long time Le Tréport attracted a very well-to-do population who were able to build themselves magnificent villas which unfortunately no longer exist. Indeed, Le Tréport underwent intense bombardments during the second world war.

Today Le Tréport is less touristic than the other famous towns of the Normandy coast nevertheless it keeps a bigger authenticity. The city has always kept an important maritime activity.

Do not hesitate to make a detour by Le Tréport.
