Halfway between Rouen and Dieppe, close to the A28 and A29, Saint-Saëns is a small town nestling at the heart of the valley of La Varenne. This river has shaped the landscape and grouped dwellings generating past industrial activities such as tanneries or mills. The proximity of the forest Eawy (7000 ha) is an added advantage that promotes nature activities. Labeled "green station" Saint-Saëns is a friendly village where the local trade is very dynamic.

Privileged by its location, natural setting and its various sports and cultural facilities, Saint-Saëns offers many opportunities for relaxation and recreation.

Saint-Saëns is also famous for its cabbage.

In 2013, the city gets a flower competition of cities and villages in bloom.
