First a small fishing port, Trouville became in the XIX century a seaside resort appreciated by Parisians.
Its tourist development is due to its immense beach of fine sand considered at the time as the most beautiful beach in the world. But also to the good number of writers and painters who stay there.
We can mention for example Eugene Boudin and Claude Monet who painted several pictures there.
Today it is a must-see on the Côte Fleurie alongside Deauville, its neighboring competitor.
Although very similar and close, Deauville and Trouville do not like to be compared.
However, as visitors, both resorts are worth visiting.
Which couldn't be easier...
During the summer period and at low tide it is possible to cross the ferry separating them on foot. It represents 220 m of walk or 3 minutes on foot!
We therefore advise you to start your day in Trouville, then to join its twin during the day!
Be careful though, the seaside resort of Deauville is more exclusive and therefore more expensive.
You will find just a few steps away from the hotel :
- A large nautical center,
- Horse races,
- A golf course,
- Sand yachting on the beach of Trouville,
- Canoeing and kayaking,
And many others...
Trouville is also :
- The casino next to the hotel,
- Themed evenings,
- Honfleur located at 20 minutes,
- Cabourg located at 25 minutes,
- The D-Day beaches are 60 minutes away,
Visit the port city of Honfleur, located opposite Le Havre.
It is the cradle of the impressionist culture thanks to the creation of the school of Honfleur.
During your visit you can discover the Eugène Boudin Museum or the majestic Normandy Bridge.
A must-see of the region which, like the painters of the XIX century, will not leave you indifferent.
