Deauville, lady of the French coast, its most glamorous seaside resort, symbolises elegance, prestige and sophistication. The city of the horse and the gateway to Calvados and sitting next door is her sister port of Trouville.
Trouville is one of the earliest seaside resorts when the 'new craze' for sea bathing took hold towards the end of the 19th century. Much of the architecture of the grand houses and hotels dates from this period. The town is now a lively and popular holiday destination, with an attractive large clean beach. In Trouville you will find some highly recommended restaurants, Le Central, Les Vapeurs and Les Voiles.

The town is best known as a very important pilgrimage centre (second only to Lourdes in France). The pilgrims who visit the town are devotees of Sainte Thérèse.
The cathedral (constructed after Ste Thérese was made a saint in 1925) has an attractively decorated interior, and is one of the largest churches constructed in the last 100 years.
If you are not visiting Lisieux as a devotee of Ste Thérèse you would be best visiting the town on a Saturday morning, to see and enjoy the market choc-a-bloc with local cheeses and ciders.
Great local zoo (and we are not usually fans) very close to Lisieux. This Zoo belongs to new generation of zoos where the animals are kept in conditions as close as possible to their natural habitat and look happy! As suprising as it sounds they look perfectly at home in the Normandy countryside. The zoo can be visited on a safari train and younger children will love the pets corner where they can cuddle a rabbit or a goat.

This garden is all about the slightly crazy plan of a couple called Armelle et Jacques Noppe who decided in 1994 to turn the 3 hectares surrounding their farm into an ‘extraordinary garden’ With the help of the landscape gardener Chantal Lejard, who designed the gardens in Meautry, they magnificently succeeded in puling off their fabulous scheme. You can go and visit the result and see the full range of delightful wooden timber framed cottages and buildings that have been saved from ruin in nearby fields and restored to their former glory around the gardens. And as you leave don’t forget to taste their wonderful crepes...

Musée de la famille As one of the most impressive examples of medieval architecture this small French castle Crèvecœur has been miraculously preserved, and has survived to this day, practically intact.
