Clint Eastwood's French Beach Hut.
Ever heard of a town called Deauville? No, neither had I until just recently and we've just returned from spending a week there. It's in Normandy, France and is just a few miles along the coast from the D-Day landing beaches.
It's a really nice resort town where rich French people go on holiday and everything is expensive. They have a film festival there every year and along the boardwalk next to the beautiful sandy beach are rows of beach huts.
Over the years many big Hollywood stars have rented these beach huts and they get their names painted on the rails. So I had to get a photo of myself outside the hut where Dirty Harry eats his ice cream and stashes his beach ball when he is in town.
I would recommend this town for a holiday but you will need to save up a lot of money and brush up on your French, just shouting at the waiters in English will get you nowhere.
Go ahead, make your stay.
