Deauville is often referred to as the Queen of the Normandy coast or ‘Paris-sur-Mer’. Notable for its Belle Epoque hotels, casino and racecourse, it has been a playground for the rich and famous since the mid Nineteenth Century. The best places to stay in Deauville offer the tourist the ideal base to explore the delights of this fashionable resort.

But it is not all about gambling and golf - the American Film Festival was instituted in 1975. In 2011 Deauville hosted the G8 Summit. The ‘Promenade de Planches’ which was constructed in 1923 offers idyllic seafront walks. One may stroll around the boutiques of the Place Mornay - Coco Chanel opened her first shop here. While staying in the town Proust wrote his classic ‘A la recherche du temps perdu’.
