Deauville is a former ancient village once situated in Normandy’s marshlands, which, in at the end of the 19th Century, developed into a glitzy French seaside resort. Stroll around the famous Planches and settle down under a shady parasol. If you fancy pampering yourself in a spa, practising your golf swing or having a flutter then book a flight for your trip to Deauville and enjoy its refined living. Wander along the beach to Cabourg, admire Deauville’s fantastic seaside villas, stop by the casino or take a break at the Royal Barrière or Normany Barrière hotels. Deauville is a stone’s throw from Mont Canisy, a natural, protected reserve and great for a day out walking. Heading along the Seine, if you follow the Côte Fleury route, you’ll find yourself at Honfleur, a town that has inspired so many painters and poets over the years. Reserve a hotel room in Deauville, close to its many attractions. In Hornfleur, head to the Vieux Basin with its Norman facades and stop to admire the Lieutenance, a classified French Historic Monument, that gazes across the harbour. For a great view, don’t miss the Notre Dame de Grace Chapel with its superb view of Hornfleur and the estuary, not to mention the stunning church with its numerous, hanging boats! The only question you should ask yourself is what to visit first, as you embark on your Normandy holiday?
