Perfect Haven

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Caprice several times over the last decade and it is, without doubt, perfect in every way. We cannot fault it! It is perfectly situated in the centre of Deauville and metres away from the beach but very quiet. The charming and ever helpful owners have thought of everything and the perfectly presented room has everything one would want to achieve a lovely week in a fabulous, chic, friendly town. The garden is a real joy. There is a place for everything and everything is perfectly organised. It is cosy, warm, charming and beautifully prepared in every way. We just love it and cannot recommend it too highly.

A perfect location for visiting Deauville

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at this beautiful apartment. We had a superb time – the weather was fantastic, with warm days and cool nights, and Villa Caprice provided the perfect base for our vacation. The apartment is beautifully decorated, and contains all you need for a vacation in Deauville. We really appreciated all the information provided by the owner, and in particular the recommendations for restaurants and cafes. Our favourites were Santa Lucia in Deauville and Les 4 Chats in Trouville. We also treated ourselves to a meal at SaQuaNa in Honfleur, which was absolutely superb.

Unfortunately, we didn't use the garden at all – we were too busy exploring the area. However, we did enjoy sitting on the terrace in the evening, sipping a glass of wine, and listening to the seagulls! We will definitely return to Villa Caprice.

A Real Find in Deauville

  • 5 of 5

This was an impressive studio apartment for two people in Deauville. The location is excellent: in a quiet street, very close to the centre of Deauville but also only 5 mins away from the beach and the board walk. Trouville was a 15 min stroll away or 5 mins by ferry (1.20 euros).

The apartment was clean and a great deal of car had been put into the decor. The kitchen is small, but had all the facilities we needed for a two week stay.

We decided to travel to Deauville by train: 2 hours to Paris by Eurostar and then just two hours from Rapus to Deauville. Once there, then public transport is cheap and easy to use: we used the bus several times and went by train to Pont L'Eveque.

I would recommend this apartment without any reservations to any couples wishing to visiting Deauville and Trouville.

Perfect for our week in Deauville.

  • 5 of 5

Great studio with garden in Deauville. The location sold it for us. This charming studio and private garden in the heart of lively Deauville was perfect. We had a two minute walk to the fabulous beach and just yards from the town centre with cafes, market, restaurants and boutiques. We could walk everywhere. The studio was immaculate, spacious and comfortable. The private garden was a sunny haven. The owners provided us with a helpful list of restaurants and places of interest. Trouville was five minutes by bac (the local tiny ferry) or car. Honfleur was a fifteen munutes drive and we had just a short drive into the pretty and historic Calvados Region. We were lucky to find this property. A lovely studio in a great location.

DEAUVILLE BEACH. From Villa Caprice it is one minute's walk to Deauville beach and its famous boardwalk Les Planches, classic colourful umbrellas,cafes and restaurants, A great atmosphere.

This is a terrific beach. Head for the Bar du Soleil where you can have a coffee, a drink or a fabulous lunch.Here you can also hire sunbeds and parasols for the day or week and a cabin. You can be served lunch as you relax on the beach. Try Ciro's restaurant if you really feel like spoiling yourself. At BENERVILLE, 2 kilometres along the coast from Deauville, you will find a great bar and restaurant, Les Ammonites, the best bar I have found in Normandy, virtually on the beach facing west. Have a drink on the terrace and watch the sun go down. Usually just locals and quite magical.

NORMANDY and ROYAL HOTELS are a couple of minutes walk from Villa Caprice. These are 2 very smart hotels with great restaurants. The Normandy Hotel has a small intimate bar which is well worth a visit.

Deauville CASINO has a very good restaurant. Do not forget to take your passport as ID for entrance to the Casino and gaming areas.

From Villa Caprice it is a 2 to 3 minute walk to all restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, the Place Morny and Deauville market.There are several designer shops around the Casino: Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton etc.

Deauville is reknowned for its top horseracing, both flat and jumping. There are 2 race tracks in Deauville. La Touques and Clairfontaine. There are race meetings throughout the year but in July and August at Deauville La Touques racecourse you will find the best International Group 1 racing in France and international polo events.

You really will see the who's who of the racing world.
