Honfleur - Deauville:

Honfleur is a small, pretty and colorful port for old boats, with its sinuous streets of half-timbered houses, a wooden church whose roof was made from an upside down boat frame, little terraced cafés and two beaches. Honfleur is one of the most beautiful and charming villages of the Côte Normande.

It is no wonder that during the 19th century, artists came flowing to this little village, following Eugene Boudin to paint the fascinating and somehow mysterious atmosphere and a subtle play of lights and shadows which make it. In Honfleur, the French poet Baudelaire wrote one of his most famous poems, "L'invitation au voyage" (Invitation to the Voyage). The message is crystal clear!

For more than a century, this jewel of the Norman coast has been famous worldwide for its beautiful and large beach, bordered by a long wooden pathway known as "les planches" (where Claude Lelouch's movie "Un homme et une femme" was shot in the sixties) as well as the horse races, the annual market of yearlings, the polo championship, golf and tennis tournaments, the regatta, the casino, the official receptions, and of course the American Film Festival, that takes places every year at the beginning of September.

Favored by French as well as international celebrities, as well as many Parisians in search of a bit of fresh air at the weekends, Deauville is the place to go if you want to see or be seen. You will find plenty of ways to entertain yourself in this city of leisure and luxury, which stands out as an increasingly serious challenger to its Riviera big brother Cannes.

Restaurant: L'absinthe: L'Absinthe restaurant, facing the harbor, has two magnificent dinning rooms, both of them conserve the visible stonework, beams and fireplaces. One of these dates from the 15th century (former house to the English guards during the Hundred Years War) and the other from the 17th century.

Museum Eugéne Boudin: The Musée Eugène Boudin is dedicated to 19th and 20th Century paintings depicting Honfleur and the surrounding area : Eugène Boudin, Alexandre Dubourg, Claude Monet, J.B. Jongkind, Gustave Courbet, Félix Valloton, Raoul Dufy... There is also a fine ethnographic collection of Norman items including furniture, objects, garments and headdresses.

Casino Deauville lucien Barriere : One of the most beautiful casinos in Europe Overlooking the beach, this spectacular white palace with its striking galleries, imposing ceilings and plush carpets is breathtaking. Come and lose yourself in the magic: the sound of the jackpot winnings, the gleaming game tables, the sparkling glasses!
