The boardwalk, the beach, the casino, the racecourse, the golf courses, the hotels, the luxury brands; the timbered houses, the eccentric villas, the yearling sales... A prime holiday destination for Parisians, Deauville offers an exclusive mix of seaside and country living, leisure and business. Ideally located on the Côte Fleurie, in a picturesque and vibrant setting. Home deco boutiques and restaurants have popped up all over the town centre, while museums and galleries compete for the best exhibition. And this Norman star has just added another jewel to its crown with the opening of a museum, a media library, a concert hall-auditorium and a digital creation space, all in a former Franciscan orphanage.
The real estate
Following a contrasted period, a 20% to 25% increase has been observed in some properties over the last five years. In Deauville, Tourgeville and Bénerville sur Mer, well-located apartments sell for between €9,000 and €10,000 per sq.m. An Anglo-Norman villa (within walking distance of the beach and the shops) with a garden will go for between €7,000 and €10,000 per sq.m depending on the amenities. And prices climb even higher for exceptional properties and apartments in Deauville’s Golden Triangle.
Sea views are particularly coveted (there are even waiting lists for future buyers), as are villas and apartments near the shops with access to the beach, and country residences in quiet surroundings with outbuildings and good-sized reception rooms.
“Focus on the Golden Triangle near the town centre in Deauville for access to everything on foot. Or the nearby countryside, surrounded by sumptuous horse farms (Tourgeville, Saint-Pierre-Azif, Saint-Étienne-la-Thillaye, Beaumont-en-Auge), just a 10-minute drive away to make the most of the magnificent landscapes of the Normandy bocage." Recommends Bénédicte Belvisi, Associate Director Barnes Deauville.
“Our team of 9 consultants has a thorough knowledge of the coastal sectors, from Honfleur to Granville, as well as the Pays d’Auge.”
Recommendations “Vendors increasingly want to sell their property off market. So don't hesitate to contact us directly as not all of our listings are necessarily on display.”
The secret to Deauville “Its proximity to Paris and the coast. It’s the ideal place for family weekends and vacations.”
