Deauville and Trouville are favourite beach spot for Parisiens in the summer. The prestigious coast line, also known as the ‘Parisien Riviera,’ is where the aristocratic society used to holiday. Deauville and Trouville are now accesible to all via the freeway extension or only a 1.5 hr train ride from Paris.
At Deauville, enjoy the picturesque scenery and unwind with long walks on the beach, admire the Norman style mansions nearby or try some horseriding.
Trouville is easily located via a bridge. Here, it is a little more down to earth, the seafood markets are a must; with the most impressive St Jacque, (scallops), I have ever seen.
