EPT Deauville - About
The beautiful seaside town of Deauville, built in the classic Belle Epoque style, has been a popular venue for Europe's high stakes gamblers since the 1910s.
The town – featured in the film “Gigi” - has one of Europe’s most beautiful casinos, lovely architecture, a stunning beach and great shopping. Since 1975, Deauville has been home to the Deauville American Film Festival.
The pretty Normandy seaside resorts of Le Touquet and Honfleurs are also easily reached by car and, for those interested in local history, Deauville is near the D-Day landing beaches, as immortalised in the film ‘Saving Private Ryan’. There is an excellent D-Day museum in the nearby town of Caen.
HOW TO GET THERE
Air: First stop is Paris which has direct flights from almost all European capitals and many flights from North America. The easiest way to reach Deauville from Paris airports is by car or train.
