Berville-sur-Mer is a commune in the Eure department in northern France.

It was the crossing point of the River Seine before the Pont de Normandie opened. It is now a pretty village located on the banks of the river Seine. It is also notable for the longest barn in Normandy at 77 metres long. This has now been converted into holiday cottages which are mainly owned by Top Sun Ltd.
