Delightful Deauville Apartment

  • 5 of 5
Villa Caprice provided a most memorable early summer break in Deauville. The apartment is very tastefully furnished in the French style. The bed was superb and extremely comfortable. Everything need was considered by the owner who gave a comprehensive list of restaurants, places to visit etc. The apartment was ideally situated for easy access to beach, town, market and restaurants, although a car is necessary If you want to explore the beautiful Calvados region.
We really loved the private garden where we spent many hours sitting in the sun, reading our books.
Highly recommend this lovely little sanctuary.

Perfect week in Villa Caprice

  • 5 of 5
Villa Caprice was just perfect for the two of us, all we needed for a great week in Deaville with its buzzy atmosphere. Even managed a little sunbathing in the lovely garden. Will definately return when there is a horse race meeting.

Not to be recommended !

  • 1 of 5
We spent two weeks in this studio et rent it because it was supposed to have a garden when we thought we could go safely with our baby boy. Unfortunately, contrary to what the advertisement posted on homeaway.uk mentions, the studio has no direct access to the garden and we were obliged to cross a path common to all inoccupants of the building and to open a door (closed by a padlock) in order to, finally, access to the garden. Moreover, the garden was not well maintained at the time of our stay (many dead leafs and high grass). Finally, we had to bear noisy upstair neighbours during 4 days (guitar, laughs, footsteps, etc.). Apart from this, the apartment is well located in Deauville, is well-equipped and has a pleasant decoration. The advertisement, as well as rental contract and other descriptive documents the owner sent us, are misleading and we consider it as unacceptable since we have the impression to have been deceived (the rental should not take into account the use of a garden).

Owner's Response: I was saddened to read that you did not enjoy your stay.

I refute your claim that my advertisement on Home Away has mislead you. The property is described as a studio apartment with a private garden. There is no mention of the apartment giving directly onto the garden. I feel your complaints are unwarranted .

My apartment at Villa Caprice has a large, enclosed, gated garden which is private and for the exclusive use of my guests. In Deauville an apartment with a private garden, of this size (250m2), is a rarity.

The photographs of the exterior of the apartment clearly show the entrance gates to the villa, a gravel path between the terrace steps of the apartment and boundaries of the garden. The photo you refer to is labelled 'An exterior view of the ground floor apartment'. Not 'A view of the garden.' The garden photos are clearly marked. There is also a long distance photo of the villa and the separate garden. Nowhere is it stated that the apartment adjoins the garden. You complain that you had to enter the private garden via a padlocked gate.You received all details, including how to access the garden two months before your holiday began! Why did you not question this then? Also I do not consider using a path to enter a private garden unsafe for your baby.

Regarding a guitar being played and laughter coming from another flat at Villa Caprice, I would point out that Deauville is sophisticated and urbane. In August, due to its beach and horse racing, it is one of the most popular seaside resorts in France and attracts all ages. August is the busiest and most vibrant month of the year and the town grows in population from 5,000 to 25,000. In a villa divided into apartments there can be a certain amount of noise.

The day after you arrived you wrote that you found the apartment 'unacceptable'.Why did you then continue to holiday at Villa Caprice for a further 13 days? I have had 16 complimentary reviews in 13 years of ownership none of which have contained any complaints about taking 3 or 4 steps to cross a path to access a private garden in the grounds of Villa Caprice. Many guests have enjoyed my garden and returned to rent my apartment for a second and third time.

You may have misunderstood my ad. I believe in reason and mediation. As a barrister, it would have been more diplomatic if you had immediately discussed your complaints with me on the telephone before making unpleasant written accusations which I find very upsetting.

" A very special place "

" A very special place "
  • 5 of 5
I am always reluctant to give reviews to places which I truly love. I do not want anyone else to know what a special place Villa Caprice is, you could not find anything else in Deauville more conveniently situated for restaurants, walk to the beach. How I wish I owned this little gem called " Villa Caprice." I have now made my feelings known to the rest of the world.

Villa Caprice in Winter

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Caprice during December and can confidently say that it was a most delightful apartment. It was well furnished, all furnishings match the apartment, and a beautiful bed. The apartment was warm and comfortable. Heating is adjustable to requirements. We didn't have to use the extra heater. The kitchen is petite but has all that is needed if you wish to cook. The bathroom is warm and cosy.
We were made to feel very welcome. There was a bottle and a card left for us.
Everything we needed was within easy walking distance, on level ground, beach, yes in December. Sunshine on the beach on Boxing Day. Shops, lots of interesting varied shops including Louis Vuitton, Hermes etc. for the dedicated shopper or window shopper. Restaurants all within an easy walk of the apartment. We had no need to use the car.

Owner's Response: Bonne Annee 2012.

Thank you such a glowing review. We have had great times in Deauville at Christmas.
Deauville and Trouville, although quieter over the winter months, are both very charming and a blaze of colour over the festive period. Parisians who join the locals at weekends add a real buzz to the two towns. Restaurants serving locally caught seafood and traditional Normande cuisine are plentiful and excellant.
What fun to enjoy the sunshine on the beach on Boxing Day.
A lovely surprise for us in Deauville and Trouville was that shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, the Normandie Hotel,Deauville Casino and Deauville's market all remain open throughout the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Deauville La Touques racetrack has a Xmas meeting.
Deauville and the beautiful surrounding Calvados area are really very special throughout the year.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you will come again.
Thank you.
Best wishes
