The Trouville-Deauville

Point of arrival for many residents and tourists, the station designed in a neo-Norman style has been listed since 2010 as Historic Monuments. We take a look in the travelers' hall with frescoes, made in 1932 by Louis Houpin, representing a map of Deauville-Trouville and a map of Normandy.

The Morny basin

Leaving the station, cross for a first contact with the sea. The sailboats moored in the Morny basin, the first of the two ports of Deauville, are in the foreground of this district of the Presqu'Île de la Touques in total redevelopment, 45% of which will be dedicated to walking and gentle cycling or walking.

Place Morny

Take rue Désiré le Hoc to get to the heart of local life. Place Morny is a very lively place, especially on market days. Before stocking up on regional products, we observe the statue of the Duke of Morny, founder of the seaside resort. A memorial plaque pays tribute to him.

Place Yves Saint Laurent

Continue along the rue Eugène Colas to reach this mini-square steeped in architectural history. The casino, built in 1912, is a mythical place. Since its inauguration by Nijinsky and the Ballets Russes, its Italian theater has hosted, among other things, the programming of the City's Cultural Season. At the opposite corner, the Normandy hotel
Barrière offers its entrance on the “Norman Court” side. Coco Chanel opened its first store there in 1913, and invented Chanel beige in reference to the wet sand of the beach.

The beach

Cross boulevard Cornuché and continue on avenue Lucien Barrière along the Deauville International Center, you are there. The beach is there. A strategic center, the establishment of baths on Place Claude Lelouch, near the Pompeii Baths built in 1923, answers all your seaside questions. A favorite place for sports enthusiasts and holidaymakers, the sea lice bring together all leisure and relaxation facilities. All you have to do is choose!

The Boards

People come from all over the world to walk there. The opportunity on sunny days to admire the famous five-color parasols, emblems of the city. Two kilometers of beach to consume freely at your own pace. Pass in front of "Le Point de vue", place of exhibition and cultural meetings and continue straight on the promenade of Ornano before turning on the left towards "Jjardin des coeurs" to hang a padlock symbol of your chabadabadesque love … Athletes will take the adjoining health course.

Villa Strassburger

Leave the seafront to find the boulevard Eugène Cornuché. Go around the Royal Barrière hotel, inaugurated in 1913, by rue Jacques Le Marois. The walk heads up in the air to admire the variety of architectural styles of the villas. At the end of the street, turn right onto rue Fracasse then left towards avenue de la République. After stopping at the square in front of the Saint-Augustin church, turn left on Hocquart de Turtot avenue to Villa Strassburger. Erected in 1907 on the site of the Coteau farm, owned by Gustave Flaubert, it is the most famous villa in the city.

The Deauville-La Touques racecourse

Retrace your steps to Boulevard Mauger and walk along the Deauville-La Touques racecourse, one of the two racetracks in Deauville with that of Clairefontaine. Its 75 hectares host many races, including prestigious polo matches in its center. Continue to the roundabout. The station is looming.
