Houlgate Normandy France



Houlgate Normandy is a picturesque seaside town located in Normandy. It was our next town to visit on our journey from Deauville. along the Normandy coast

It is a popular destination for both French and international tourists. The town is known for its wide sandy beach, its coastal cliffs, its stunning views of the English Channel, and its charming 19th-century architecture.

One of the main attractions in Houlgate is the long promenade that lines the beach and its many cafes and restaurants. Strolling along the promenade is a great way to take in the stunning views of the English Channel and the nearby cliffs.

Another popular attraction in Houlgate is the casino located at the heart of the town. It is a great place to experience the hustle and bustle of a casino and to try your luck at the gaming tables.

Houlgate is also home to a number of other interesting attractions, including the Sea Museum, which offers a look into the town’s maritime history, the Yves Legrand Museum, which is dedicated to the work of the famous French painter, and the Church of St. Nicolas, a beautiful and ancient church that has been standing since the 16th century.

Nearby Houlgate, visitors can explore some of Normandy’s most stunning countryside. The nearby town of Deauville is located just a few kilometers away and is a popular destination for visitors looking to experience the luxury of the French Riviera. The nearby town of Honfleur is also worth a visit, as it is a charming fishing village with its cobblestone streets and colorful homes.

For visitors looking to explore the history of Normandy, a visit to the nearby Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial is a must. The memorial is a tribute to the thousands of American soldiers who lost their lives during World War II.
