Created by the will of Napoleon III in 1851, the city of Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer combines in perfect harmony past and present. This village of fishermen offers a new youth during the Roaring Twenties with the construction of a dam walk of 1800 m bordered of Rococo or Art Deco villas, which have kept all their charm.
Located in the heart of the D-Day beaches, the waterfront has to a large extent not suffered from the misdeeds of the war.
A constant effort of rehabilitation has preserved the character so typical of Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer.
The seafront buildings open many passages to the narrow alleys of the old village where some old fishermen's houses are the watchful guardians of the past.
But Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer is also a station inscribed in modernity. Beautifully flowered it offers the joys of the sandy beach, water sports and other activities such as tennis and horseback riding. The dreamer will stroll along the protected dyke promenade of cars, admire the sunsets from the many terraces facing the sea, will be able to go through the alleys at the colorful Sunday market or discover the shops of the old market town.
In the evening, numerous concerts and casino in Art Deco style animate the city.
