Normandy is a very large Départment, so we have split Normandy into West and East (roughly corresponding to Haute and Basse Normandie).

Hotel du Golf Deauville
Hotel du Golf - deauville****

Dominating the Normandy countryside the Hôtel du Golf rises like an island from the green sea of Deauville Golf Club.  Built in the characteristic Normandy style with a rich chocolate and cream exterior; internally you will find all the charm and elegance that you would expect from this “chicest” of resorts.

Classic bedrooms are on the top two floors, looking out across the golf course to the Seine estuary at Le Havre.  These room are adequate in size, however Superior and Deluxe rooms on the lower floors are larger (at a small supplement) if you feel you would like more room.

The first Tee of Deauville Golf Club is just across the car park and there are very good practice facilities available too.  And with golf included every day at a variety of local courses, this really is a Mecca for golfers heading for Normandy.

There are several options for dining at the hotel, the restaurant is excellent (with lovely sunsets too), there is also a brasserie type menu available in the bar for lighter dinners and very good lunches are served in the Clubhouse.

Deauville with all of its refined chicery is just at the bottom of the hill, just a little too far to walk: Trouville just across the mouth of the river Touques (bridge or one-minute ferry) is a livelier seaside resort.  In either town, there are numerous locations to dine and we will recommend a few for you to try when we send out your tickets.

Included for every night of your stay are eighteen holes at Deauville, St. Julien, Amirauté, Omaha Beach,
Champ de Bataille or Dieppe.

Fer a Cheval*** - Trouville

Trouville the livelier sibling to Deauville has a more relaxed feel about it with more open-air dining and generally more tourists milling around.

The Fer a Cheval hotel is in one of the classical old townhouses of Trouville, very close to the casino, Trouville tennis club and the long sandy beach with its characteristic boardwalk running the full length.

Inside the hotel has been thoughtfully brought up-to-date with simple, stylish rooms, a welcoming sitting room and breakfast area: more of a Guesthouse in many ways with an intimate family-run feel.

Although there is no restaurant at the hotel, the riverfront of Trouville is only a minute or two away and is lined by a wide choice of restaurants and brasseries - many open until late into the night.

There are a few parking spaces in the courtyard beside the hotel; if these are taken it's rarely a problem to find a slot in the streets around.

Cheval Blanc*** - Honfleur

Easily reached from either Caen, Dieppe or Le Havre, the cobbled quayside town of Honfleur makes a convenient and animated base for all of the courses of Normandy.

The Cheval Blanc is on the quayside in Honfleur, so all the restaurants the port has to offer (there are many) are within a very short stroll; making the lack of restaurant at the Cheval Blanc an irrelevance.

The location is excellent, bedrooms and bathrooms are compact but very clean and tidy, the breakfast buffet is served in a room on the first floor and is very good for a three-star hotel.

There are two options for parking: either the convenient public car-park just around the corner or the hotel's garage which is a couple of hundred yards away (small nightly charge for the latter).

Bourgetheroulde***** - Rouen

Rouen, the capital of Normandy, has an historic centre that is well worth visiting and the size of the city is not so great as to make it an unfeasible base for your golf holiday in Normandy.

Converted from one of Rouen's oldest buildings, the Bourgetheroulde hotel offers a fascinating blend of ancient and modern - the dazzling lobby bar that greets your eye as you enter through the stone doorway is quite a surprise!

Bedrooms are very modern too so you are assured of a comfortable stay and a good night's sleep.  Plenty of the original stonework is still very much in evidence however around the Reception area and the two restaurants.

Underground is the pool and spa area, which receives daylight via the glass floor in the lobby.

Auberge de l'Abbaye***- Bec Hellouin

Bec Hellouin is a tiny hamlet wrapped in the lush green folds of the Normandy countryside southwest of Rouen.  This haven of tranquillity was chosen by the Cistercian monks for their monastery and abbey back in 1034 and which is still in use today and the main reason why people come to Bec Hellouin.  The construction of the fabulous Champ de Bataille golf course just ten kilometres away means it now doubles as a wonderful golf retreat too.

The family owned and run Auberge de l'Abbaye occupies four old Normandy houses in the main (only) street.  The auberge has bedrooms of varying shapes and sizes so please call to discuss the best arrangements for your party.  The recent refurbishment has added a lighter, brighter touch to the bedrooms and restaurant, without disposing of any of its original character.

The hotel restaurant serves classic Normandy cuisine that fits perfectly with its traditional French setting.  Although Bec Hellouin is a sleepy little village there are two other restaurants, so you can add variety to your dining without having to resort to four wheels.

Acadine*** - Le Neuborg

Le Neuborg is the closest town to Champ de Bataille and favoured by devotees of this outstanding course.  This market town is a reasonable size with three or four options for dinner, but by no means a tourist centre.

Just a mile from the high street, the new Acadine hotel is a functional establishment, offering solid accommodation with very few frills.  Its principal advantages are a big private car park, a small bar and its proximity to Champ de Bataille.





Soleil d'Or** - Le Neuborg

A very old, very simple, family hotel by the main square in Le Neuborg.  Old fashioned rooms and old fashioned cuisine!
