A beautiful, typically Normand hotel with large, high-ceilinged rooms and spacious gardens.The decor is original and very homey--the four of us felt like we visiting family. The owners are charming and cultivated. The breakfasts were excellent--homemade jams and waffles as well as croissants and bottomless cups of coffee. What a wonderful change from tourist trap, homogenous, chain hotels.....

The villa is enchanting, spacious and very comfortable. Vintage cinema posters decorate the walls. The garden is gorgeous. The hosts, Jean-Pierre & Joceline Milan, are delightful. I highly recommend 'Villa Sans Souci' for a weekend escapade or a birthday celebration. DM

The location of this haven of peace is at five minutes’ walk from the city center and it will only take you few more minutes to get to the fantastic natural arches of the Etretat cliffs. We loved the beautiful garden, the cozy atmosphere of the house, the breakfast and needless to say the friendliness of the hosts. A "must... More

We staid over a week in the B&B "Villa Sans Souci". This is the most beautiful place we have ever been! Everthing is more than perfect, the cosy rooms, the kind service, the great breakfast and the very very polite Owners. Thank you, Jocelyne and Jean-Pierre for everything! We send you greetings from Basel and will recommend you strongly to... More

The house needs investment. All exterior paint is peeling off which gives it a sorry look. Neither the building nor the owners were particularly welcoming. The whole place was dark at night with no welcoming light left on. Inside, I agree with previous reviewer that the house is very cluttered and it does not give an impression of cleanliness. The...

My wife and I were not comfortable at Villa Sans Souci. Whist the exterior and the grounds of the B&B are very pretty, the interior needs a make over. We stayed in the Africa room and found it and the rest of the house cluttered with personal objects of the proprietors and kitschy decorations that gave the the B&B a... More

Gorgeous house with a warm host, a 5 minute walk to the center of town and a few minutes farther to the beach. Etretat is a gem, and this is a wonderful place from which to experience it. Villa Sans Souci is its own little, magical world!

We stayed for one night at "Villa sans souci" in the "Mystère de la chambre jaune" room. Information booklets about the movie made us curious about it. We plan to see the movie in the near future. We saw other places to stay in Etretat, but this one is definitely the most intimate one! The landlady gives attention to every... More
