    Our opinion

    A cottage-like hotel with grand interiors and access to family facilities.

    Hotel description

    Overlooking Les Planches beachfront, which is renowned across the area, the Hotel Normandy Barrière is a luxury hotel in Deauville that blends enchanting fairytale architecture with a homely, cottage feel. Exceptional for family holidays to France, the Hotel Normandy Barriere encapsulates the best of a holiday in Normandy. Its half-timbered façade and picturesque turrets give the exterior the style of a huge Anglo-Norman cottage overlooking gorgeous gardens. There is an array of flowers spilling over the window boxes, and the quaint, countrified feel is in wonderful contrast to the hotel’s setting. Facing the beachfront of Les Planches, families get the best of both worlds: characterful accommodation and quick access to beach and the activities it promises. The hotel’s interior is reminiscent of a grand hotel, with vast spaces featuring columns, chandeliers and high ceilings. The hall and bar were decorated by Jacques Garcia and retain an old world glamour and sophistication that is warm and inviting.  The 290 rooms and suites were similarly designed by Gardia, yet they show a more modern influence with Toile de Jouy set against cosy, colourful linens. Although the rooms are not particularly large, the luxurious fabrics and thick carpets in all areas add an extra feeling of quality. Choose between a number of room options, but the higher room categories benefit from sea views. At La Belle Epoque, French gastronomy is served in an elegant space filled with chandeliers, whilst grand arched windows look out on to the interior courtyard. There is even a dedicated restaurant for children, offering a special menus from July to September. Other facilities at the hotel include an indoor heated swimming pool, a spa and a fitness centre. Youngsters may also make the most of the complimentary bike hire or develop their tennis skills. Children are deemed just as important as older guests at the Normandy Barrière, which boasts the DIWI kids’ club for 4 to 12 year olds and the BABIWI club for infants aged 3 months to 3 years from July to August.
