A bit of history
Sainte-Marguerite-Sur-Mer is a rural and seaside village known for its pastures, cultivations, woods, gardens, beach, lighthouse and hiking trails.
Originally, the village was called Caprimont. It was chosen by the Gallo-roman administration to establish a villa, home of the local governor.
The roman style church in the village was finished on the twelfth century, then restored on the sixteenth century. Today, Sainte Marguerite-Sur-Mer's peacefulness and tranquility seduce nature's lovers from all over Europe.
Home of many holidaymakers, the village counts several villas, guest houses and restaurants
The lighthouse is at the top of the "Ailly tip", at the entrance of the woods. The location gives a large and beautiful panorama over the surrounding countryside.
The great hiking trails GR21 and GR212 (French "chemins de grande randonnée") as well as the smaller paths maintained by the city offer a great way to discover the municipality's 541 hectares.
