Rue des Bains is the link between the authentic Trouville-sur-Mer of the fishing port and the beach resort of Trouville-sur-Mer.
Trouville-sur-Mer has managed to preserve its soul as a small fishing village. As towns grow and become more vibrant, they sometimes lose some of their identity and charm. But Trouville has managed to combine youth and vibrancy with its warm and authentic soul.
A VIBRANT AND HISTORICAL AREA
The Rue des Bains embodies the heart of the town. This is a small, largely pedestrian street with cafés, restaurants and a variety of small shops. It is a lively street in which to relax, stroll and party. In amongst the bars and restaurants are shops selling regional products, wine cellars, as well as small shops selling clothes, jewellery, interior décor, art and antiques. It is this diversity which illustrates the combination of the resort's history and the vibrancy of the neighbourhood.
Savignac's murals and the art galleries and art dealers, who also offer workshops, are a reminder of the Trouville's past and of the artistic soul which still inspires people.
Add to that a few cobblestones, charming architecture with fishermen's houses and the sound of seagulls having fun not far away on the beach and you'll get a sense of the warm atmosphere that gives Trouville-sur-Mer its identity.
