Straddling the majestic Norman coastline is Le Grand Hôtel Cabourg - MGallery by Sofitel, a luxury hotel that has been entertaining guests for more than a century. First built during the 1860s, ambitious hoteliers reconstructed the Grand Hôtel in 1907 to serve the town’s flourishing tourist population. Word of the luxurious building spread quickly, attracting many creative people to the hotel. The most famous among them was the world-renowned French author Marcel Proust. From the time the building reopened until the eve of World War I, Proust was a regular guest. The hotel left a clear impact upon his life. It served as the basis for a fictional seaside resort named the Balbec that appeared in his celebrated, voluminous novel, In Search of Lost Time. Due to the profound influence it left on the author, the French Ministry of Culture registered the Grand Hôtel as a historic monument in 2014. The Grand Hôtel is now part of the Sofitel family of luxury hotels, having joined the company’s esteemed MGallery collection in recent years. Cabourg is a popular seaside destination, with thousands of people traveling to the town’s shoreline every year. And the Grand Hôtel can help its guests enjoy a memorable day out at one of Cabourg’s splendid beaches. Guests can rent accessories directly from the hotel, as well as relax along its serene private beach. Guests can also venture out into the surrounding Pays d’Auge valley to visit the many pastoral medieval villages that dot its landscape. From here, guests can travel to the numerous cultural landmarks scattered throughout the region, such as Dives-sur-Mer, the ancient city of Caen, and the D-Day invasion sites. Only two hours away from Paris, the Grand Hôtel is a wonderful place to start an unforgettable trip.
