The Balbec of Marcel Proust
Designed by Charles Bertrand, the Grand Hôtel of Cabourg stands in the center of the fan-shaped city. In 1892, he owned the Grands Établissements de Cabourg. Four years later, he had the old Hôtel de la Plage and the wooden casino demolished. The Italian-style Grand Hôtel, its casino, and its gardens were inaugurated in 1907. Marcel Proust often stayed there, in room 414. He named the city Balbec in his In Search of Lost Time.
