Deauville is where the fortunes of French filmmaker Claude Lelouch changed irreversibly, for the better. One of France’s favorite sons, the director is known for his 1966 movie A Man and a Woman, which won him two Oscars including one in the foreign-language category. What is more, the house that is currently taking the Deauville real estate market by storm is the magnificent $9.34 million residence of, none other than, Lelouch himself.

As a child, Lelouch spent most of his weekends and vacations at Deauville. In fact, the idea of A Man and a Woman came to him, one dreamy night in the mid-1960s, while lounging on the beach. The film was shot almost entirely at this beautiful French commune.

 Over the years, Lelouch has bought a number of houses in the region, one of which was recently listed for sale. What is truly unique about the 5920-sq-ft home is its innovative circular design, centered entirely around a rotund swimming pool. Completed last year, the two-storied Deauville house features an open floor plan, comprising of a kitchen, a dining room, two spacious living areas,  an indoor sauna and a bathroom on the ground floor and five elaborately furnished bedrooms on the floor above it.

The highly modern interior is juxtaposed brilliantly with traditional Romanesque exterior of half-timbered roofs and white stone walls. Additionally, the estate comes with a golf course and also, a tennis court. Doesn’t seem like much of a surprise, given that this 10-acre property is priced at a staggering $9.34 million!
