The Hôtel du Golf – Luxury in Deauville

Not far from the sea and the charming houses of Deauville you´ll find the splendid Barrière hotel – “Hôtel du Golf”. An excellent place to spend the weekend.

The Hôtel du Golf is filled with character and charm. Hôtel du GolfA fine combination of Norman tradition and modernity that reflects in both the exterior and the interior architecture and design, making the hotel much more than just a luxury hotel.

Hôtel Barrière L'Hôtel du GolfI spent the night in the Superior room, in a cozy, warm and delightful ambience. And as I jumped into the bed to try it, I felt like disappearing in a soft sky and I heard myself express a big “aaaaaaaaahh” as when you let go of all tensions in the body. Such an amazing bed! Need one like this at home. It´s the kind of experience that you´ll never forget. I´ve been dreaming about that bed ever since.
