    Les Planches (in English: "The Planks") and Plage de Deauville (in English: "Deauville Beach"), Deauville, Normandy, France

    Some background information:

    Deauville is a seaside resort in the Norman department of Calvados in northwestern France. Although it has just a population of about 3,800 people, it comes up with a race course, an international film festival, a Grand Casino, a conference centre, several marinas, numerous villas and sumptuous hotels. Deauville is regarded as the "queen of the Norman beaches" and one of the most prestigious seaside resorts in all of France. As the closest seaside resort to Paris, the town and its region of the Côte Fleurie (in English: "Flowery Coast") has long been home to French high society's seaside houses and is often referred to as the Parisian Riviera. Since the 19th century, Deauville has been a fashionable holiday resort for the international upper class. It is also known for its role in Marcel Proust's novel "In Search of Lost Time".

    Deauville’s history can be traced back to 1060, when Lord Hubert du Mont-Canisy dominated the magnificent land which was previously known as Auevilla. In 1066, Hubert du Mont-Canisy left to follow William the Conqueror to England.

    However, until 1860, Deauville remained a rather unimportant little seaside town. In that year Duke Charles Auguste Louis Joseph de Morny, half-brother of the emperor Napoleon III, began to transform Deauville into a more travelled resort. Until his death in 1865, certain key investments were made that would transform Deauville’s history. Such investments included a railway from Paris to Deauville, the Deauville hippodrome for horse races, and a small casino. Within three years, over forty villas were constructed in the surrounding area, and 200 rooms, as well as other accommodations, were finalized in the Grand Hotel.

    Following the duke’s death, Deauville grew gradually, but it was not until the early 20th century when the town was pushed into another important period of transformation and development. The still-famous Normandy Barrière and Royal hotels and the casino opened in the years 1911 and 1913. During these successful years before World War I, many luxury boutiques opened in the streets of Deauville (e.g. Coco Chanel's first shop), as many stores from Paris decided it was worthwhile establishing themselves in the up-and-coming Norman resort.

    Nevertheless, during World War I, wounded soldiers were cared for in Deauville’s famous hotels and in the casino. Unfortunately, the war also took a heavy toll on Deauville’s blossoming market and trade sector as merchants were forced to give many of their products to the war effort.

    In 1923, Les Planches – the famous wooded boardwalk that parallels the whole seaside – was created and finalized. You can see it on this photo. The promenade has a length of 643 metres and a width of nine metres. It is made of tropical timber from Madagascar that does not rot. The boardwalk and the buildings lining the promenade were planned by the architect Charles Adda.

    The boardwalk was meant to enable the fine ladies to walk along the beach without having to mess up their long dresses, while the buildings in the style of Art Deco were named "Pompeian Baths". They include shops, café bars, a swimming pool, a hammam with shower, bathing, massage, sweating and relaxation rooms, nine quadrangular courtyards crossed by a central aisle, a fountain girded by mosaics decor and of course also 250 bathing cabins on the seaside (50 of them luxury cabins, supplied with hot and cold water). These bathing cabins were graudally named after famous Hollywood actors and directors, who already paid Deauville a visit. Another 200 cabins are on the boulevard side. The whole ensemble which was built to guarantee the "hygiene, comfort and elegance required by bathers" still pours on the peculiar charm of the Roaring Twenties. By the way, only one person was allowed to amble along the boardwalk in her car and that was Queen Elizabeth II in 1985.

    But back to Deauville’s history: The combination of the national financial crisis and World War II completely removed the paradisiacal aura of Deauville that would not resurface until the 1950s. During the war the German Army occupied Deauville, while villas, hotels, and the casino were all occupied or used to some extent by the German forces. But in the fifities and sixties Deauville became again a centre for high society and celebrities from almost every field. With scenes of award-winning movies being filmed in Deauville, the Deauville American Film Festival (established in 1975) and endless celebrity traffic, the town has definitely renewed its status as an emblematic resort town of Europe.
