Deauville is spectacular, wonderful town, buildings, food, top notch equestrian centre. But travelling around there was a large circus set up. With many exotic animals being kept in awful conditions. Lions crammed into hot barred trolleys. Elephants sadly swaying chained up and more. How sad such a progressive area and country still allows this fiendish practise. Left a sad and sour taste. Come on Deauville don't let this continue.

Travelling with a little one can be difficult and so we wanted to find places that would be happy to have a toddler (especially after a horrible experience I had in a restaurant in Deauville) - it was refreshing to meet a lovely lady who circles on the map toddler friendly places and recommended to go to the races as it's very family friendly. She was indeed right and we had a great time in Deauville the rest of the trip!
Merci beaucoup!!!

We visited to get an idea of the layout of Deauville and the main things to visit. We were given a map of the town with a recommended 2 hour walking tour which takes in the main sights.

Our tour included the covered market, the 'high end' designer shops, the Casino, the beach and the beautiful Villa Strassburger which was unfortunately closed but is open in July I think.

I stopped by the tourism office to pick up a map and some guidance on what to see. I was recommended the Deauville walk with tips on a shortcut up to a church on a hillside for a good view. It was a steep hike on a hot day, but it was worth it. They were quite helpful.

This is a posh French seaside resort. The beach has a gorgeous and very long promenade... perfect for strolling. The beaches are wide, sandy and very clean. We were there in October but lucked out with a sunny autumn day so walking along the promenade was lovely. The small town center is also very beautiful. It is full of posh hotels, expensive shops and beautiful restaurants and bakeries. We also found a lovely market. All the buildings are old gorgeous French timber buildings, well maintained and full of character and charm. It was so pleasant walking around..... I am only sorry we didn't have more time here.
