Latest guest review - 18th May 2017:
We have just returned from Deauville, where we had a wonderful holiday, the apartment was just right for us and the welcome from Madame Maugard could not have been better. Between us we showed that her lack of English and my very limited French was no barrier to a very hearty and amusing introduction to Deauville. We enjoyed the Markets with the wonderful selection of foods, we made it to Paris , and Honfleur.
We shall definitely return to Deauville about the same time next year, all being well.
Kind regards, John."
The kitchen is fully-fitted as decribed but also includes extras such as kettle, toaster, wine cooler, steamer, potato peeler etc.
The living room has a service hatch from the kitchen, light oak furniture and a double bed-settee.
There are large patio doors to a covered balcony with wood garden furniture and lovely views over the race horse stables.
The tv only receives French channels however we have set it in such a way that some programmes such as American series can be watched in English rather than French.
Lovely and cosy double bedroom with lovely views, large double wardrobe and bedside tables.
Bathroom with bath and shower attachment over. Fully tiled.
The wc is separate from the bathroom.
Electric individually controlled wall mounted heaters in each room.
There is much to do and see in and around Deauville from long sandy beaches, lively markets, going to the races, visiting the D-day landing beaches, seeing Monet's gardens at Giverny or even enjoying a day trip to Paris and Disneyland.
There is an indoor pool at the property (constant depth of 1.8m) with sauna and Jacuzzi.
The complex has lovely grounds with indoor pool, parking and bicycle storage.
Each apartment has its own allocated parking space.
The complex is a the bottom of a hill so the grounds are sloping however parking is right by the apartments and although we say that the apartment is on first floor it is actually accessed by going down three steps. If you have limited mobility please feel free to contact us for more information.
The apartment is within walking distance of the Deauville train station and many visitors have used this to go into Paris, Rouen etc which makes an excellent, hassle free day out.
We are an Anglo-French couple with one daughter who live in the UK but love spending as much time as possible in Normandy! And who wouldn't - great food, great people, beautiful countryside and lovely resorts.
|Year property purchased||2002|
|Why this location?||It is very easy for us to get to as we live in Portsmouth so we can pop over for a long weekend. Deauville is lively all year round and we love the Sunday market in Trouville where we purchase local produce so that we can take a bit of France back home with us.|
|Unique benefits of property||Location, Location, Location - and of course the indoor pool, jaccuzi and sauna which we love using after a long day out sightseeing or walking on the long sandy beaches or in the hills of the Suisse Normande. It is also very well equipped so a real home from home.|
Paris is easily reached by train or car and makes a fantastic day out. You can even treat the children to a visit to Disneyland.
Only an hour away the town of Bayeux is charming, has lots of lovely restaurants and of course its amazing Tapestry.
Honfleur (12k) is a delightful fishing port reached via a scenic coastal road from Trouville with restaurants and boutiques lining the water's edge. An artists' heaven so don't forget your camera!
Not only does Caen have some great Abbeys to visit but also a large selection of stylish shops and restaurants. Mondeville also is a fantastic commercial centre where you can find everything from cheap wines to modern furnishings.
If you are interested in history there are a number of museums dedicated to D-day all along the coast and the Museum of Peace in Caen is only half an hour away.
The beach at Deauville is lovely with its wooden promenade, famous beach huts and large expanse of clean sand.
The market at Trouville (Wednesday and Sunday mornings) is not only perfect for bargain hunting, you can also get some fantastic cooked meals such as roast chicken, curried potatoes, couscous - ideal to take back to the apartment and eat al fresco on the balcony.
Our apartment is a stone throw from the race course and overlooks the race horse auction grounds - both a delight to watch.
Golfers are spoilt for choice here with 2 championship golf courses within 3km - the Golf Barrière de Deauville and the Golf Club de l'Amirauté.
The famous Abbey built on an island in the sea on the border of Brittany and Normandy is superb and only an hour and a half or so away by car. Don't miss it!
There are many restaurants in Deauville and Trouville - choose from small crêperies, seafood brasseries, Italian eateries or traditional French cuisine all within fairly easy walking distance.
Deauville is a chic city with many exclusive boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Hermes, etc. For some real shopping don't miss the market at Trouville on Wednesday and Sunday morning where you can get some real bargains.
Deauville plays host to a number of special events and festivals throughout the year. One thing is certain you will never be bored in Deauville. You can refer to their website to find out more.
The indoor pool in the complex is excellent so why not have a swim, sauna and Jacuzzi to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.
