The building history and heritage

Build in around 1890 we don’t know yet if the house was originally constructed already as a Hotel or as a private residence? All we could find out was that it was known as the „Hotel de la Mer“ and then changed into an Apartment Hotel that was under several Names such as „Villa Madeleine André“ and „Villa MGM“ and now the TOWNHOUSE TROUVILLE.

Normandy and especially the “cote fleurie“ was very famous already in the 18th hundred.
Where Europe’s first influencer invented the bath in the sea.
More than two centuries ago, a 19-year-old, Maria Carolina, Princess von Bourbon-Sicilian and Duchesse de Berry, walked into the sea at Dieppe, for the first time in France. Since then, the French town of Dieppe claims to have invented the beach life.

In the 19th century, Trouville-sur-mer was named as „the queen of the beaches“, the jewel of them all.

The birth of townhouse trouville

The Townhouse Trouville remains a work in progress, undergoing various loving restorations since its inception in 2019. Prior to its conversion into a modern, stylish Apartment Hotel, founders Carlo Castro and Oliver Wriedt were visiting Trouville annually over 20 years. They started by buying their first property in Trouville and building local friendships and networks. Due to the shape of the old redbrick building the founders named the house TOWNHOUSE TROUVILLE, also as their strong dedication to this beautiful city and coast.
