Which is the shortest river in France?
Veules-les-Roses is a tourism and farming village situated on the coast of the English Channel in the Pays de Caux, some 12 miles (19 km) southwest of the town of Dieppe.
The river Veules, which flows through the commune, is the shortest river in France at 1.194 kilometres (0.742 mi). Its water is used to create ponds for growing watercress whence it finds its way to the sea through a gap in the high chalk cliffs, which overlook a sand and pebble beach.
There is a waterside path called "Champs Elysées". Along the path, one can admire the splendid Norman thatched cottages, the large seaside villas built in the 19th century and the beautiful gardens planted with roses.
The path takes one from the sea to the village. There are some small cafes that serve "Veulaise", the oyster that owes its unique taste to the combination of fresh and salt water, which is found nowhere else.
The river Veules flows into the English Channel; 1194 meters long from the source to the sea; super clear water where one can see brown trout.
