Created in the 19th century by the Duke of Morny, to become the ‘kingdom of elegance’ close to Paris, Deauville has successfully preserved all its splendour and its elegance: typical holiday home architecture, fine sandy beach, etc.
Famed the world over for its American Film Festival, but also for its horse racing and horse and yearling sales (2 racecourses), a whole programme of events are organised throughout the year within this seafront resort.
A concentration of leisure pursuits can be found in and around Deauville: golf courses, casinos, spas, mini-golf, racing track, aquarium, water sports clubs, adventure trails, tourist train, etc.
Don’t miss a stroll along the famous ‘planches’ boardwalk!
