Great central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated 3 minutes walk from the market, 5 minutes walk from the beach, 5 minutes walk from Hotel Normandie and only 10 from Trouville. We particularly liked having the private use of the garden which got the sun for most of the day and into the evening.. Facilities are fine and the bed very comfortable. We had a great week and look forward to returning.

A very comfortable and well appointed apartment walking distance to Deauville sites

  • 5 of 5

A charming apartment in the centre of Deauville, with exclusive use of a large garden. It was well appointed for self catering, within easy walking distance of a supermarket. A great variety of restaurants can also be found just around the corner. Deauville's beautiful beach and major sights are all very close. The apartment contained helpful maps and tourist information as well.

Good shopping, with some nice fashion boutiques.

Lyndia was very helpful and the information she provides for the visitor is excellent.

This little apartment is a great find for us , just total relaxation. Decorated in lovely neutral greys/stone/cream with lovely linens. The bed was so comfy and seating area was nice and relaxing. Open the french doors and sit on the sofa just to relax and unwind or sit in the secluded garden with ample garden furniture....lovely to sit in the afternoon with a bottle of wine and sample some of the lovely meats and cheeses from the local market just a short walk away. This little gem is located in a central spot for either shopping, dining or walking along the promenade/beach. Just a lovely little apartment. Lyndia and Avon were very friendly and helpful owners given the fact that this was our first time in France, they could give us advice and information about the surrounding area. It certainly lived up to our expectations and we will definitely return.

TROUVILLE, is a 10 minute walk, or you can take the tiny ferry (Bac) across the River Touques for 1 euro. Here you will find a good sandy beach and a great variety of cafes, restaurants,bars, brocantes and art shops. There is a daily fish market , if you get there early enough you can watch the fishing boats arrive with their catches, and a Sunday brocante. Le Central and Les Vapeurs are the two famous traditional old style French Brasseries specialising in fish dishes and Fruits de Mer. The lanes behind have a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. The Casino has a very good restaurant. Again do not forget to take your passport , as ID, for entry.

HONFLEUR, a charming 16th century port, with it's collection of slate roofed houses, bars and restaurants crowded around the little port, is famed as the birth place of impressionism & a 15 minute drive along the pretty coastal road from Deauville.


Villa Caprice in Deauville: Villa Caprice is in the heart of stylish Deauville, made famous by the French impressionists, and everything is within walking distance. One to two minutes walk to Deauville Beach, it's promenade and all it's amenities, one minute's walk to Deauville marina and 10 minutes walk to Deauville Yacht Club. 10 minute's drive to Benerville sur Mer, 10 minute's drive to Trouville sur Mer and 20 minute's drive to Honfleur.

Villa Caprice is in central Deauville.

Further Details:

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.

Thalasso Health spa, tennis and Olympic swimming pool are a 3 minute walk.


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.

There are various race horse and trotting trainers in and around Deauville. Every morning you will see race horses trotters and polo ponies, in July and August, training along Deauville beach. Really worth getting up early to see.
