Visit of Villerville - Place du Bouloir

Place du Bouloir

14113 VILLERVILLE

Until 1830 Villerville was only a fishermen's hamlet with half-timbered houses and a single street with no sidewalk or lighting. In 1850 everything changed when the railroad came to Normandy between Paris and Lisieux and then to Trouville-sur-Mer in 1963. It was then easy for Parisians to come and discover the coast and Villerville developed, notably with the opening of the Hôtel des Bains and the sea baths. The typical and authentic side of Villerville seduced many artists, including Ulysse Butin, Charles François Daubigny and Edouard Jospeh Dantan.
All three of them painted many pictures of Villerville with the cliffs, the beach, the fishermen, the Graves or the local folklore as subjects. All three lived in the heart of the village and Dantan lived on the Place du Bouloir.
