This year, give in to temptation with a "Chic at the Beach" stay!

To enjoy a Chic at the Beach stay, come and stay in some prestigious seaside resorts!

These locations are an opportunity to discover a unique architectural heritage and charming villas looking onto a protected area of coastline. Famous for being used when people first started bathing in the sea, France's oldest seaside resorts have retained a certain charm from days gone by.

The fashion for sea bathing having arrived from England, and the exclusive preserve of a bourgeois élite, sea bathing began in the mid 1900s. The trend then grew very quickly in Normandy, at Deauville, then in Brittany, at Saint-Malo, Dinard and Carantec. These were followed by the entire Atlantic coast, at Soulac-Sur-Mer, known as "the town of 500 villas", Les Sables d’Olonne, Arcachon and Biarritz, which stood out as an example from this prosperous era.

More recently, the resorts of Saint-Tropez and La Baule were the stars of the mid-twentieth century, and both have retained a great many of their charms.

For a combination of cultural discovery and seaside holidays, we suggest you visit these villages close to some of the prestigious seaside resorts:
