But there are also many parallels between the two destinations, with Trouville also featuring many grand villas, hotels and even a casino.
Wander along the promenade and take in the picturesque harbour and impressive architecture. Also be sure to stop at one of the town’s food markets, and find out more about local history at the Musée de Trouville.
The pretty town of Honfleur is just a 25-minute drive from Deauville. The harbour is the main feature here with impressive historic houses and boats reflecting beautifully on the water.
