Hennequeville, a district of Trouville-sur-Mer, was once a small hamlet that was concentrated around its church. The two fishing villages merged to form Trouville-sur-Mer in 1847.

It's the greener, quieter, more secluded corner of Trouville-sur-Mer. There are a lot of places to stay, from campsites to gîtes and guesthouses.
