Best hotels in Trouville-sur-Mer
An elegant resort on the Normandy coast, Trouville-sur-Mer had its heyday in the 19th century when Emperor Napoleon III made it a fashionable spot. One of his nobles dreamed up the idea of a racetrack on the other bank of the river Touques and neighboring Deauville was born, making this stretch of the coast a popular summer escape for Parisians. Trouville offers a bustling old town with a graceful waterfront, plenty of fish restaurants, and a nice beach. It's a charming place to stay on the coast. Hotels.com is among the leading online accommodation sites in the world and has partnered with a great selection of Trouville-sur-Mer hotels to offer the best value rooms in town.

What's Trouville-sur-Mer Like?
Much of the architecture in Trouville-sur-Mer dates from the 19th century when the town was at the height of fashion. Highlights include the Town Hall, which features a Louis XIII-style design and Napoleon's summer residence, the Montebello villa, which includes a museum devoted to works by 19th-century Trouville artist Charles Mozin. The staircase known as the Escalier du Serpent connects the seafront to the upper part of town, offering great views. The beach remains a prime attraction, with an elegant promenade that includes more 19th-century mansions, villas, and a casino. The English Channel can be a little cool for swimming, so families might welcome the heated indoor and outdoor pools close to the beach. Golf and cycling are popular sports in Trouville, while neighboring Deauville, reachable by river ferry or a duckboard path, offers that alluring racetrack. Trouville-sur-Mer hotels provide a relaxed base on this scenic part of the Normandy coast.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Trouville-sur-Mer
Trouville is still predominantly a resort for Parisians rather than English-speaking visitors, so try using a few French phrases to get by. French vacationers tend to dress nicely so it's worth trying to look chic rather than casual when you venture into Trouville's restaurants and cafes. Seafood can be elegant and expensive, so trying the informal French seaside staple of moules frites, mussels with fries, may be worth it. Locals won't disapprove if you accompany your mussels with Normandy cider. There are produce markets on Wednesday and Sunday where you can stock up on provisions for beach picnics.
