Villa de Noailles
About the home
Our apartment offers the convenience of being adjacent to the beach, the decor is state of the art, sleek, bright and contemporary. After walking up the terrace steps, one enters a airy, high ceilinged salon the focal point of which is the gas fireplace. The open plan kitchen is adjacent.
At the rear of the ground floor are two small bedrooms, one with a bunk bed and the other a single bed that converts to a double. In between these two rooms is a shower and wc. Returning to the main salon, one finds a stairway that leads to an open mezzazine where one finds the t.v and dvd player. The mezzanine looks over the salon. From the mezzanine, there is another stairway which leads to the upper master bedroom suite. This has its own shower and wc. The upper terrace is sheltered and is an ideal place to read or dine. The lower terrace is open but perfect for sunbathing if one prefers to avoid the sand!
As the villa is at the end of Trouville, although only 5 minutes walk away from the town centre, it is less crowded and much more tranquil than the very centre of the town. There is a nautical sports centre a two minute walk away, and, of course, the beach is literally across a small road, and down some steps.
Villa de Noailles was one of the first villas to be constructed in Trouville, and apart from its exemplary architectural style, is known for being just next to the Roches Noirs, once a famous hotel in which the reknowned French author, Marguerite Duras, lived for many years.

Further details indoors:
Ideally, a summer lodging but equally as beautiful in the spring and winter when Trouville is less populated and the beaches are occupied by those year-round residents who love nothing better than a leisurely or brisk stroll on the beach. Everything is open year round: the casino, the spa, the restaurants and cafes have outdoor heaters and the ambiance is absolute magic.
Further details outdoors:
As previously mentioned, the property has two private terraces with a direct and clear view of the beach: one terrace is sheltered and shadier and the other exposed and sunnier. The first entrance is a small garden gate with stairs leading to the first terrace, and there is another central stairway leading to the second terrace, where the main doors to the property are located. Both stairways are enveloped by a variety of flowering plants. On the upper terrace is a dining table with 8 chairs. On the lower terrace are two lounge chairs.
The property is available for weekly, monthly or longer rentals. Arrival and departure is on Sundays. We do not accept credit cards but do accept cheques in sterling.
The Normandy / Calvados region
Normandy is a constant attraction, not only due to its proximity to the beaches, but also because of its diversity and places of historic interest. Normandy offers manors, castles, churches, superb country walks, endless country drives, sports such as riding, golf and tennis, excellent sandy beaches, and of course, its reknowned cuisine.
Its butter, cheese, calvados and cream are world famous, but the seafood is a gourmand's delight. The weather tends to be very hot in the summer, and even in February, it has been warm enough to walk on the beach. Spring is magnifcent with cherry and apple trees exploding with blossoms. Winters can be mild or severe, but generally the climate is temperate. Shopping is excellent for all price ranges. Restaurants also. It is a region that takes pride in its history and traditions and guards its authenticity at all costs.
The Trouville sur Mer area
Trouville sur Mer, or Trouville on the sea, is one of the oldest beach towns in Normandy, quaint and charming, an immensely popular seaside locale since the mid-1800's. A stretch of water divides it from its neighbour Deaville, and is a short drive to the superb harbour town of Honfleur. Trouville hosts some of the most famous restaurants in Normandy, excellent shopping in small boutiques, the famous fish market with the freshest fish around, a casino, a spa.
On the beach, there is tennis, a nautcial sports centre, rides and games for children, as well as summer clubs which can occupy the little ones for the whole day . The walk along the Trouville boardwalk is delightful, just looking at the magnificent 19th century homes is in itself a treat-- along the way, sample a chocolate or chestnut crepe, or some delicious mussels and chips. One can also spend the day at the races in Deauville, or see a polo match or play golf at nearby St. Gatien. Going inland, one experiences the true Normandy, lush woodland roads, and endless drives through divine countryside. All in all, the region provides the best of all worlds.
How to get there

One can get to Normandy in several ways: fly to Deauville airport (St. Gatien), take the chunnel arriving in Calais or the ferry to Ouistreham in Caen (Brittany Ferries) or the ferry arriving Le Havre (LD Lines). The first option is 15-half an hour to the property. The second option is about two hours away, the latter two, the ferries, less than an hour. Deauville, which is situated directly next to Trouville, has its own train station. Trains can be taken from London St. Pancras, Eurostar, to Paris Gare de Nord. From there, one must get to another train station called St. Lazare, a short tube ride away, and take the train to Deauville. (Sometimes one must change trains in Lisieux) The property is a short cab ride from the train station or a 20 minute walk.
