Discovery of Deauville in Normandy

An easy walk to discover all the facets of Deauville.

Deauville is certainly the most chic seaside resort on the Normandy coast. Most of the big names in luxury have a store in Deauville (Hermès, Louis Vuitton...). The city is very beautiful and the Norman architecture is present everywhere. On the other hand, Deauville is not a cheap town to spend your vacations. The walk presented allows you to see most of the emblematic places of Deauville. It does not present any major difficulties except for a slightly steep hill to reach the Saint Laurent chapel but the view is worth the trip.

The boards allow you to walk around without getting dirty. Right next to it, there are cabins where you can find the names of movie personalities who have passed through Deauville. The seafront is a mixture of Art Deco (badly maintained), French fries stands and parking lots, quite astonishing for such a chic town.
