Deauville may have been THE hip seaside resort in the late 19th century, but the past year has proven that it has lost none of its charisma and appeal. A desirability that encompasses the entire Côte Fleurie and is more than compatible with seasonal rental.
Deauville has always positioned itself in the luxury property segment, and has become somewhat of a 21st arrondissement of Paris. So much so that its villas, apartments and manors were seen as the holy grail of Normandy during the lockdown periods. Isabelle Vaugeois, head of seasonal rentals at BARNES Deauville, has selected some of the finest properties just for you on the Côte Fleurie and its inland region.
Let’s start off on the heights of Deauville with this Anglo-Norman manor that would be equally at home in the writings of Marcel Proust or Agatha Christie. Built in 1874 on the hillside, thus ensuring a panoramic view of the sea and surrounding countryside, it boasts six bedrooms and en suites each more comfortable than the last as well as magnificent Art Deco reception rooms. We particularly like the billiard room and the bar complete with a grand piano, both opening out onto a terrace thanks to the patio doors.
And because nothing is too good when it comes to enjoying the pleasures of the Côte Fleurie, guests at the manor can also take advantage of the two massage rooms, sauna, steam room, jet shower, jacuzzi and relaxation room - ideal after a day on the green or on horseback. The 8.6-acre landscaped park also features a heated pool and a tennis court, as well as a boules pitch - a Provençal touch that could add Pagnol to the two previously cited authors. Its 10,225 sq ft are available to rent from €21,250 per week.
Next on the list, this townhouse dating from 1890 and located in the centre of Deauville, making it the ideal choice to make the most of the restaurant and café terraces that have at last reopened! Its reception rooms on the first floor are a true pleasure to behold, worthy of the cover of the top interior design magazines. The same is true of the two main bedrooms, which each occupy a floor.
And the added extra - the garden provides access to an independent apartment with a lounge and kitchen opening onto a terrace and two delightful bedrooms on the upper floor. A sauna rounds off this property spanning a total of 3,014 sq ft, available to rent from €7,375 per week.
Let’s head inland now with this picture-postcard family property at the heart of Tourgeville’s horse farms. Impeccably decorated with a charming twist on the classic Norman country style. The spacious living room on the ground floor is a masterpiece in itself, so much so that you’ll find yourself wishing for the odd downpour so that you can curl up by the fire (rain in Normandy? Come now!).
Bar, billiard room and terraces... everything you need for blissful relaxation. Indeed, the 6,458 sq ft of this 8-bedroom manor are devoted to art de vivre, complete with a gym, home cinema and steam room, while its 2.5 acres of parkland boast a large swimming pool, a tennis court and a boules pitch (the latest trend in Normandy?). Available to rent for 2 weeks minimum, from €15,000.
And because distance is no obstacle at SoBARNES, let’s round off our tour in Granville with this spectacular contemporary villa built in 2007 and set on the seafront gazing out to the Chausey Islands. The pictures speak for themselves: the geometric lines of the interior perfectly complement the curves of the floor-to-ceiling windows.
This 3,336 sq ft house comes with 5 bedrooms, a home cinema, gym and sauna. Not to mention the indoor pool with a sea view... Available to rent from €4,400 per week.
