Françoise Sagan

(1935-2004)

Tired of the crowd of Saint Tropez, Françoise Sagan rents in July 1959, The Manoir du Breuil in Equemauville, between Honfleur and Deauville. She frequents the gaming tables of the Casino de Deauville, plays with passion and on the night of August 7 to 8, 1959, wins 8 million Francs. With this sum she buys the mansion and becomes the owner “… of what was to be and remains my only asset on earth: a house that is always dilapidated, located twelve kilometers from Deauville. »From that lucky day, Deauville and Françoise Sagan adopted each other, with a passion for games and horse racing, a taste for parties shared with friends and the pleasure of taking breaks to dream on the vast beach of Deauville, in all seasons.
