During the summer, Deauville in the north of France draws an eclectic mix of tourists. Americans and Canadians come to see the beaches of Normandy and the cemeteries of the World War II soldiers who fought to free Europe from the grip of the Nazis and died doing so. The English come across the channel in their cars and campers by ferry and tunnel, enjoying the rolling hills of the French countryside. Sheiks and princes from the Middle East descend in their private jets, bringing their horses to the famous racetrack. Parisians drive the two hours of highway and winding roads to escape the city heat and visit their version of the Hamptons. Others take a chance at the casino. The clay courts in front of the 5-star Le Normandy hotel are filled with vacationers dreaming they are playing in front of the crowds at Roland Garros.
