On the seaside

At the beach of Tourgéville

Tourgéville stretches over the Pays d’Auge countryside. To the northern side, this beach is very popular in Deauville and Bénerville-sur-Mer. Horses gallop there in the morning and in the evening. The sunset on the English Channel is amazing.

This large and surprising villa has neo-gothic architecture. It was built in 1905 by the Mors brothers, Emile and Louis, both automobile conception engineers, whose family company became famous at the beginning of the 20th century for its success in races.
