It is the most romantic day of the year. From the most traditional activities to unusual experiences, at home or in the heart of nature, there are a thousand ways to celebrate Valentine's Day inDeauville. Between a duo massage, a bike ride, a longevity session and an outdoor escape game, here are our best ideas for outings.

 


1. Eat breakfast in bed

____________________

It is certainly a great classic, but we never tire of it. For a gentle awakening before starting a day full of activities, stay wrapped in bed, bask under the duvet and enjoy the calm of the morning. On the menu, we find the essential golden croissants, toasted breads, soft brioches, still warm waffles, homemade granolas and so many other sweet and savory pleasures. If you don't have time to cook, head to the baker down the street. Smells of pastries straight out of the oven perfume the nostrils as you pass the Bakery Jouenne ; to the Kayser bakery, we fall for the financiers and savor the cakes with one of their fruit jams.

2. Observe the sunrise

____________________

In the early morning, inDeauville wakes up in the dark, the first rays of the sun are reflected with splendor on the sea, sublimating the surrounding landscapes. As the sun rises, the Anglo-Norman villas stand out against a golden backlight and feast the eyes. The magic operates, silence reigns. On this Valentine's Day weekend, go to one of the many spots that abound in the area to witness this breathtaking natural spectacle scheduled for 8:10 am. To your cameras, it's magic.

7. See an exhibition and eat a pancake

To warm up after your walk, head to theHotel Barrière Le Normandy *****, where you will find a chalet in front of the establishment.
