Nourished by numerous influences, Deauville conceals a great variety of architectural styles born of the creation of seaside resorts and the fashion for sea bathing in the 19th century. Villas, manor houses or cottages are often surprising and heterogeneous, sometimes they are true masterpieces. These elegant constructions, built at the will of the owners in order to show their social and personal success, testify to the creativity and fantasy of the architects. All styles are mixed and matched: Norman, English, Scandinavian, Gothic, Moorish, historicist... This unique heritage gives the area an original, distinctive and precious charm, to be discovered along the streets.
