THE CABINS OF THE POMPEIAN BATHS

 

Inspired by the Roman baths, the sea baths and their cabins were built in 1923 by the architect Charles Adda. In the same year, he created the Promenade des Planches, which runs along the shoreline for 643 meters, the only one of its kind.

THE CABINS, THREE ATMOSPHERES

 

The 450 bathing cabins in Deauville, spread over 9 courtyards with Art Deco architecture, can be rented by the day, week, month or season.

There are three options: on the beach side on the famous Planches, on the boulevard side with small indoor pools and on the baths side, for the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties. Reservations open every year in January at the Sea Bath Establishment.

Enjoy the modern architecture of the establishment, the purity of the lines and the mosaic decorations. A delicate universe populated with atriums, a fountain, galleries...

IN THE ORIGIN

 

Like many seaside resorts, Deauville's reputation was founded on the curative effects of sea bathing. In 1921, the Parisian architect Charles Adda (1873-1938) was the winner of a competition organized by the municipality of Deauville to replace the baths, which were in a very poor state of repair. His innovative project, entitled"Les bains pompéiens", was inspired by ancient models, while at the same time being modern in its use of concrete and clean lines. An important mosaic decoration breaks the monotony of the concrete. 250 cabins, including 50 luxurious ones organized in two districts, were built. A network of porticoed galleries, sweat and massage rooms, a hammam, an American bar, a hairdressing salon and stores complete the ensemble. With a low and horizontal composition, the Pompeian baths free the horizon from the casino terrace. The project was built and inaugurated on July 5, 1924, in the presence of Denise Grey. That day, she is disguised as Ondine, and bathes in the pool of the courtyard of the Baths.
