Deauville has been a luxury resort since the beginning of the 1800s. Its distinctive architecture has forged its character like the sea front villas dating from the Belle Epoque. In the background, the Impressionist movement of the 1800s reminds us that the resort often inspired great artists of the time like Eugène Boudin. Impressionism is still celebrated in Normandy today at the Festival Normandie Impressionniste.
Deauville its beach and racecourse on the beautiful Côte Fleurie !
Deauville is at the heart of the Côte Fleurie. For a little variety, go swimming at the fine sandy beaches of Villers-sur-Mer and Blonville-sur-Mer. Blonville-sur-Mer is a quiet seaside resort nicknamed the « paradis des enfants (children’s paradise) » ! Villers-sur-Mer is an elegant seaside village, well-known for its ‘Vaches Noires’ cliffs, its sheltered beach and Paléospace, a museum devoted to dinosaurs. Other pretty villages and seaside resorts which are well worth seeing include Pont l’Evêque, Villerville, Bénerville-sur-Mer, Touques and, a little further afield, Cabourg.
The people of Normandy are very fond of Sunday outings to Deauville and along the Côte Fleurie. They stop at Deauville for lunch by the beach then have a walk along the coast to enjoy the views and the leafy inland countryside. These Sunday outings to Deauville have a distinct holiday atmosphere !
