Opening weekend of the Barrière Le Normandy Deauville Hotel
It hadn’t closed its doors in… 103 years! Normandy lovers can rest assured, it took only 6 months of work at the mythical hotel to be reborn from its ashes with brand new Jouy canvases and half-timbered walls so typical of Norman vernacular architecture.
The hotel amputated about twenty rooms and suites to offer today 271, more spacious and luxurious, under the artistic guidance of decorator Nathalie Ryan. The restaurant La Belle Epoque, the epicentre of the place, has also undergone a facelift, reinvented this time by Alexandre Danan who added a few contemporary touches to the reception area. Finally, the Normandy is equipped with a”Diane Barrière” Spa and invites its inhabitants to an intense regeneration, rebalancing and pleasure of being programme.
It has to be said that the old seaside institutions of the Barrière group still have a bright future ahead of them, and have made this clear this weekend by organising a great weekend between film people, a few weeks before the inauguration of the International American Film Festival.
