Deauville in France

The seaside town Deauville in Normandy is home to one of the most exclusive French beaches and comfortable hotels as well as an ideal destination for those who love old-world elegance. That’s the reason why France’s upper class considers it a longtime favorite place to travel.

Deauville also hosts the annual Deauville American Film Festival that attracts many Hollywood elite each September. If you have watched or at least known about the fiction movie “The Great Gatsby”, you need to know that Deauville was the honeymoon destination of two main characters Tom Buchanan and Daisy.
