Deauville is a magnificent little coastal town, but the surrounding area is just as charming. Here's a look at what you can do in and around Deauville.

It doesn't take much effort to love Honfleur! Painted by Boudin and Monet, Honfleur leaves visitors spellbound. Don't miss: the Vieux Bassin, the historic port founded by Colbert, the Quai Sainte-Catherine with its tall, narrow houses, the salt lofts, the art galleries and the church of Saint-Catherine, the largest wooden church in France, with its separate bell tower.


Separated from Deauville by the Touques River, Trouville offers a different face with its bustling fishing port. The seaside architecture of the seaside villas blends perfectly with the fishermen's houses of the narrow streets in the centre (over 2 km of passageways and cul-de-sacs). The casino and fish market are the most emblematic buildings.
