DEAUVILLE, A CITY OF NATURE

A seaside town with many influences, Deauville boasts a wide variety of architectural styles. The town has been modern throughout its history, daring and creative, letting talent express itself. These testimonials to the genius of town planners, landscapers and architects are still very much alive. The villas here are often astonishing, sometimes true architectural masterpieces. They give Deauville an original, distinctive and precious charm, astonishing for the diversity of its neighborhoods and influences.

ARCHITECTURE MARKED BY CREATIVITY

Three characteristics underpin its identity: the great creativity of its architecture, whether radiant, eclectic or more modest; the originality and strength of its urban composition; and the importance of its gardens and fences, which play an integral part in the overall ambiance of the streets.

PROTECTION & ENHANCEMENT

In 2005, Deauville drew up an architectural, urban and landscape heritage protection zone (ZPPAUP). In 2015, this was succeeded by the Aire de mise en valeur de l'architecture et du patrimoine (AVAP), with a particular focus on sustainable development and a vision that encompasses the entire territory. The AVAP protects and enhances old buildings, and opens the way to quality new construction that respects the spirit of the place. In the spirit of the Grenelle Environment Round Table, it also makes recommendations for the proper integration of technical equipment to control or produce energy, as part of a sustainable development and heritage preservation approach.
