Seaside serenity

Channel at low tide. Deauville.

Deauville is a small town on the northern coast of France in Normandy. At first glance it may seem too bourgeois, but that's what I like about it - it has that je ne sais quoi that translates into class and subtlety and the serenity of a vacation at the seaside without the luring tourists around you.

Renowned for its very rich visitors in the past, Deauville has a Casino and many imposing hotels and mansions on the waterfront. But that's not what makes its beauty, it would all be in vain without the never ending beach and the lighthouse. In fact, you already caught a glimpse of this marvelous beach and of its lighthouse a few weeks ago, in Hot weather... The beach is huge, but treacherous - the tide can be very quick and take off with... let's say your shoes (that's what happened to me!) or other belongings you might hold dear! The weather is generally not very hot and neither is the water, but just imagine waking up early in the morning to go for a walk on the golden sand, wind fluttering in your ears and not a soul around you for miles.

Beach. Deauville.

Waterfront mansions. Deauville.

The food is great, there are some typical dishes you may want to try, but the fresh fish and seafood are the real treat. The locals are very open and friendly and you will have a great time in one of the small restaurants.

My favourite part of Deauville other than the beach? The channel you have to cross in order to get from the train station to the Casino and the beach. In the morning you just cross it by foot, but in the afternoon you might have a problem with that - a boat would be a better option, unless you're the swimming type ;)

Mont Blanc, also famous for its pen and accessories is a must visit. This is the only such boutique in replica watches or this region besides its Singapore branch. The famous rolex replica sale originated form Sonvilier, in the Swiss Jura or better known as Chopard is also situated next to these stores. I wonder if Chopard Mille Miglia Classic, my personal favourite of replica watches sale was on display. I did not have much time at that particular hour to replica watches into all these boutique. It will be included in my next visit. But from what i see on the window display, the offer was more towards catering ladies watches segment. In the rolex replica also there is this Watatime boutique where you can find most of the authentic watches such as Omega, Ebel and Longines watches which has high market demand. The fake rolex sale is also situated near these luxury boutique but on a different floor.
