How long (approximately) to drive from south of Paris (Sceaux, to be precise) to Deauville in Normandy? It would be a Wednesday morning at the end of this month, leaving as soon as the morning rush hour has cleared, and not exceeding the speed limit (biensûr).

Does anyone know somewhere good but "value for money" to stay in that area - suitable for 2 adults, a 14 y/o and a friendly Labrador. Just one night, but 2 rooms needed. Perhaps a gite or a budget chain like Ibis?

Hi Iain,
Sceaux to Deauville is probably around 2 hours, the 2oo odd kms being mostly on motorway.
There is an Etap-hotel in Deauville quite close to the horse-track at 38 euros the night, but unfortunately couldn't see on the site if they accept animals.

You can see your exact route and travel time by putting in both town in the travel planner http://old.viamichelin.com.

I also recommend a Chambre D'Hote. Especially since you have a dog, a farm stay should be just the thing.
I've already done a search for you at:
http://www.gites-de-france.com/gites/smileservice/recherche?langue=439&produit=408&LREG=0&ENV=H&RAYON=10&COMMUNE=Deauville&CODE_INSEE=14220&ITEA=0

(if the link doesn't work, try http://www.gites-de-france.com/gites/uk/bed_breakfasts and fill out Deauville (14) in the Town field.

You can see immediately if dogs are admitted. To choose luxury, there are 1, 2 or 3 corns next to the dog icon.
Since most B&B's are outside Deauville, I suggest that you again use the Viamichelin route planner to determine your route.

You might also consider the Logis de France chain of small hotels. If you type Deauville into their Search window, four hotels appear and three of them welcome dogs in both hotel and restaurant and they all have gardens for romping. Prices ranged from 51 euros up to 199 euros so you should find something within your budget. The web site is http://www.logis-de-france.fr/uk/

We try to stay at Logis de France because they are friendly, clean, have excellent restaurants and are so French . . . 8^)

Enjoy your trip.

We ended up at the Ibis, because we booked at the last minute.

2 hours was about right for the driving, although we hit a bouchon on the way there (accident) and I missed the A86 exit on the way back (it was 11pm and I was tired).

Great place, 5* trip.

Thanks for your advice.

Travel Tips for Deauville-les-Bains

Deauville La Touques

by iaint

For me this was a highlight of our visit to the town (in fact the reason for going).

The course is completely charming! Very French, very Norman - see pictures. It is immaculate as well.

We were lucky to have a sunny late October afternoon, and the crowd was small, so we were able to enjoy being outside and move around freely. I suspect the course is much busier for its bigger summer meetings.

Betting is different to the UK, in that they don't have individual private bookmakers. You can only bet through the Pari Mutuel Union (PMU) - like the Tote in the UK. Its fine once you get used to it. We found a teller who spoke excellent English, but a few key words in French (number of horse, amount of bet and "gagnant" or "placé" are all you need. Its not high finance, after all.

We were there during a 14 day Normandy "Equidays" festival, focussing on equestrianism in the region. Its a big deal in the area. In fact there is another racecourse in the town - name escapes me. Yearling bloodstock sales were taking place in the auction ring across the road from the course.

The course was established in 1864 by a half brother of Napoleon III, to complement to town's casino and spa attractions. It was renovated in 1994-95 and an all weather sand track installed in 2003 (at our meeting, only one in 7 races was on the sand).

The facilities include a restaurant on top of the stand - we did not have time to try that and had to make do with a sandwich. Advance booking is probably required.

Entry was FREE when we went - I think they make a small charge for the big summer meetings (€3, or suchlike). Cash - for betting (not compulsory, but it makes the races more fun).

Clothing - depends on the weather, but you will be outside for 4 hours (there is a grandstand, but it will not hold everyone on a busy day). The other issue (being France and all) is how stylish you want to be. There is no dress code, but you may want to "look the part" by digging out your best designer labels!

Binoculars - the course has a giant TV screen, but you may want to decide what you are looking at.
