38 Rue Jean Mermoz


“The only villa in the world with 300 rooms.” (Le Figaroscope).

This five-star hotel is a stunning monument situated in the heart of Deauville. Its exquisitely over-adorned architecture with convoluted bell turrets and painted half-timbered walls made it a legendary place.

With three courts looking out on the sea, the city and the casino – it was inaugurated on July 1st 1912. At the time the Normandy hotel was regarded as “the best hotel in the world” by columnists. Théo Petit, its architect, explained that he decided to join in this “Anglo-Normand cottage” “all the extravagances of a luxurious resort”.
