My wife and I drove to Honfleur on the day of our arrival in France. The landlord, Nathalie, met us and helped with our luggage up the three flights of narrow stairs. She also helped on the day of departure, and returned our security deposit the same day. The view of the harbor from our third floor appartment in a 17th century building was beautiful and everchanging with the life of the city and harbor before us. Nathalie recommended shops and restaurants and sights to see, and she provided literature to enhance our exploration of Normandy.
Two vases of fresh flowers and bottles of red and white greeted us along with a well supplied kitchen if we wanted to cook. The excellent restaurants in Honfleur saved us from cooking dinners. The one across the street we liked so much that we ate there twice. We enjoyed the wooden church built by the boat builders of Honfleur and the Eric Satie Museum. We stayed a week and explored the town and the sights of Normandy every day. Free parking was a short walk away and Nathalie showed us to the lot. We would have no hesitation in recommending this vacation highlight.
