The history of the building


The history of the building

Second only to Dieppe, Trouville-sur-Mer became a favourite of the middle classes, the aristocracy and artists due to the benefits of bathing in the local sea water.

The beau monde flocked here to take a dip and then, in the evening, a promenade dressed in their best, with entertainment to while away evenings spent at the resort. The first casino, which quickly became too small, was an unmissable fixture on the social calendar.

As a result of which, it was decided to build the biggest casino in Europe on the beach: Les Cures Marines was born in 1912. First a casino, then a municipal museum and sea water treatment centre, the building slumbered through the 90s and today has come back to life under the aegis of Cofinance, who has handed the reins to MGallery and Thalassa Sea & Spa, two brands of the ACCOR hotel group.
