One of the most pleasant walk along the stream/small river. Every bridge every house every water mill was just beautiful and one needs discipline to stop taking pictures but enjoy the place. Water was clear, some healthy looking fish swimming in it and watercress was gently flowing in the water - creating an amazing picture. And if one loves flowers, this walk does not disappoint at all - full of colourful flowers of all shape and sizes, they all looked rather effortlessly beautiful. We visited here on a sunny day. Not too busy. Gentle sun. One of the most memorable days of this trip.

Amazing little transparent river. You can walk along in the village and enjoy the nice flowers and properties. I understand that off peak season is a must to visit this awesome Norman village.

When coming back from the Normandy to Germany we did not have this place on our original planned route. But a colleague of mine suggested stopping here as he was visiting two years before and described this village as the most beautiful, picturesque one he had ever seen. It was his insider tip so we put it on the route and stopped here … … well we tried to stop here but no way. As we started in Cabourg in the morning we came here around noon. The village was cramped with thousands of cars and millions of pedestrians. Albeit beautiful this place is certainly not an insider tip as we assumed and were told. Its a major tourist spot and even driving through the whole village to the beach and up to the camper grounds for the big caravans there was not a single legal spot where I could have parked my car. So we decided to let go and skipped our visit here. It would not have been real fun with all those tourists running around here. And yes, I realize that we also had been just tourists adding to the cramped village. So I would rather recommend you coming here way before or after main season. We visited in July on a Saturday. Not smart either but all of those tourist housing kick you out on Saturdays. My colleague was quite shocked when I told him afterwards that there had been literally more people per square meter than in Mount Saint Michel or Carcassonne - which is hard to believe but true for the main season at week ends. But obviously places as big as Mont Saint Michel are perfectly organized to a degree that you don't notice how many people are wandering around there. In Veules Les Roses you cannot miss this feeling of cramped spaces. Now I'm not sure if its unfair to rate them just 2 stars. But as I now understand they cultivate their image as picturesque must-see hotspot pretty much so they should also make sure to have some kind of parking space outside of the village to keep the cars out of the way and even offer some more parking lots than the few dozens that are inside the village itself. But like I said: Even if we wanted to stay for an hour or so there was no chance to make this happen due to the lack of parking lots - even if we would have accepted some not so legal place to park. Those were also occupied already.
