ROMANTIC GETAWAY IN HONFLEUR

Honfleur Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom apartment, sleeps 2 up to 4 plus baby, self-catering.

Honfleur is the charming, historic fishing village on the Normandy coast that inspired the French Impressionists at the turn of the 20th century. Honfleur still has a thriving artists' community, many art galleries and museums as well as over 140 cafés, bistrots and restaurants. Nothing is very far away in this thriving, active little port at the mouth of the river Seine.

Our pretty and comfortable apartment is ideally situated just a few minutes from the famous Vieux Bassin and the rest of the town. This 17th century former hospital was renovated in 2000 and the apartment has just been entirely redecorated.

DUE TO A CHANGE IN PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS WONDERFUL PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY FOR SALE (11/11/13). We offer a substantial discount to genuine potential buyers who would like to stay and view, in the near future.

Entry is through a private courtyard with free parking across the road.

Our bright apartment is on the third floor, there is a lift as well as stairs. The windows are slightly north of east-facing, with a view over the rooftops - so, morning sun, but not in your face.

There is a lovely beach within 10 minutes' walk. There are great walks through the town or up the surrounding hills in the same amount of time.

In close proximity are the Normandy Landings beaches, chic Deauville, Bayeux, Lisieux and Monet’s garden at Giverny.

Honfleur activities: Honfleur welcomes around 3.5 million tourists a year and is open and active all year round. We hope you will soon join them. There are two major museums of art. One dedicated to Eugene Boudin a famous resident and one of the sponsors of the Impressionist movement. The other to Erik Satie - a really fascinating experience with examples of his music, surreal art, mechanical inventions and collaborations with other surrealists.

The Museum of Ethnography is located by the old prison and in its nine rooms you will find traditional furniture, clothes, books and household objects, all arranged as they might have been in typical Normandy homes of the 18th and 19th centuries.

There is a little Musee de la Marine in the very old church on the Vieux Bassin. It has some rare models of ships and some beautiful and amusing sketches of ancient mariners by Léon Leclerc (another local-born artist).

Nearby exploring: Deauville is only 25 minutes away. The beach boardwalk (les planches) and fashionable shops offer lots of people-watching opportunities, not to mention spending money. Even non-gamblers will enjoy a day at the races - every second day during August at the two beautiful racecourses. Next-door Trouville has a great fresh fish market, lots of little restaurants and there is an area very like The Lanes of Brighton.

An hour's driving west will take you just past Caen to the Normandy Landings beaches. The American Cemetery at Omaha Beach is a chilling reminder of the heavy price paid to liberate Europe. You can see the remains of the mulberry harbour at Arromanches, and Pegasus Bridge is less than an hour's drive from Honfleur. Each of the beaches now have very impressive information / museum centres. Le Memorial at Caen gives a human perspective of the effect of war on civilians as well as military.

At Rouen, an hour's drive to the east, Eglise Saint Ouen has the heart of Richard I ('the Lionheart') and the tomb of his younger brother Henry ('the Young King'). The same church was painted many times by Monet.

Nature: Normandy is not all about war and history. There's beautiful, lush farming countryside, sandy beaches and gentle rivers, sleepy towns with half-timbered houses, brocantes, cider-makers, and small cafès for a fixed-price lunch...

We grow apples, rear cattle and horses. We make cider and creamy cheeses. Calvados is a warming gentle brandy distilled from cider - great for settling a full tum - - and making space for a little more.

Naturospace in Honfleur is the largest tropical butterfly house in France.You are transported into a tropical paradise of 800sq.metres. It is right across the road from the apartment.

Cerza is a great zoological park of 50 hectares, conserving and breeding many of the world's endangered species.The park is only a 40 minute drive away, near Lisieux.

There is a large waterski / wakeboard / sailing lake beside Pont Audemer, only 25 km (30 minutes' drive) away. There is also a centre for off-road biking in the hills around the lake.

A Honfleur Haven

  • 5 of 5
The tranquil hideaway offers all that you need for your stay in Honfleur. The apartment is well equipped, very clean, and excellent location. Good communication from the owners Andy and Kevin plus a bottle of wine on arrival, what more could one wish for. Would certainly recommend.

Fantastic apartment in Honfleur

  • 5 of 5
This renovated apartment in an old hospital just on the edge of the historic town is fully furnished with all mod cons, warm and cosy. We really enjoyed our stay here even though it was rainy for a few days with showers, but felt right at home I this place. The owner Andy was fantastic - really recommend this for 2 people.

Great Apartment - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
After hours of searching for apartments in Normandy we settled on this little gem. Several things caught our eye. Firstly the price, considering we stayed at the height of the season. Secondly, the fact it was all on one level as we have a 16 month old daughter and thirdly the location.

From the outset our initial emails were answered quickly and both Andy and Kevin were incredibly helpful and patient with all of our questions. Even when it took a few days to answer because they were away they were very apologetic. One great aspect of renting this property for us was the fact that we could pay in sterling via Paypal. Having rented several apartments and villas from this type of site often means having to make costly bank transfers, including a deposit and the final payment and that can add £'s. We didn't pay a deposit and paid in full five weeks before. Confirmation was given when the funds arrived. You will not get ripped off here. Another factor to consider is that the deposit was really small at 50 Euros (others we have paid have been £200+) and it is clear that Andy and Kevin are not out to try and get money out of you for the slightest thing. We did spill some red wine and when Andy came over and saw it she was very relaxed and easy going about it. We got our full deposit back too. Another great thing is the fact that you can self clean and don't have to pay 75 - 100 Euros for cleaning.

The apartment is spacious, clean and well laid out. Despite some reviews commenting on the sofa bed being a futon etc, I can say that for a sofa bed it was very comfortable. Myself and my wife used it for two weeks and it was fine. The kitchen, as with the rest of the apartment, was well equipped and we ate in almost every night cooking full meals.

The apartment location was perfect for us. It was a few minutes walk to the old harbour, close enough to make life easy, far away enough to be tranquil and quiet. You also feel very safe here, with coded access and being on the top floor. There is ample free parking across the road in Naturospace.

Close by are some beautiful parks and the swimming pool, ideal if you have little ones with you. We spent a lot of time in the play area with the splash pool with our daughter and it was great. The beach isn't the best, but Trouville is only 15 minutes by car and we found free parking on the road to the beach just after the Trouville sign.

If in doubt book this apartment. You will not be disappointed.

Review of flat in Honfleur

  • 4 of 5
The flat was ideally situated within a short walk of "Center Ville"but still in a quiet location. Free parking was available just across the street. It was very clean and well presented and with all the amenities you need including a washing machine & WIFI access.

It was very comfortable for two but five would be crowded.

I would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Owner's Response: We're delighted you enjoyed the apartment and thank you for your comments and the opportunity to clarify that the fifth person is only ever going to be a baby or a child. We can supply a baby bed or a folding mattress, and make it clear in our advertising and correspondence.

Quiet Apartment in Honfleur

  • 4 of 5
The location of this apartment is ideal for the beach, restaurants,shops and beautiful walks overlooking the town.
It was easy to find and the parking is excellent.
The apartment is in the old hospital which has been well converted into living accommodation, it was spotlessly clean and well equiped - possibly a little cramped for 4 people. We would happily recommend this property to friends/family.
The owners provided excellent customer service both before and during the holiday.
The area is well provided by public transport, there are numerous restaurants to cater for all tastes and prices. The old historical buildings in nearly every street are a photographers and artists delight.

Owner's Response: We are delighted this reviewer had such a lovely time in our apartment, and left such a great recommendation - both for our apartment and for Honfleur.

We'd like to respond that we have had many family groups including one of 5 adults without any comments about feeling cramped. Many families have returned and commented favourably in our guestbook on the size of the apartment.

Romantic stay

  • 4 of 5
I very much enjoyed staying in Honfleur for one week in summer 2011 for several reasons.

Honfleur itself is a charming place offering something for everybody: couples, families and singles. It is a very romantic place with this old fishing harbour, really very good restaurants, boutiques offering fashionable clothes and finely designed jewellery, galleries inviting you even in the late evening and a very traditional merry-go-round and a lovely beach for children.
Although Honfleur was very crowded the atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful.

If you decide for the flat advertised for you will actually make a good choice. All the information given on this flat was true. It was very clean and offered all the comfort I needed. Because of the various lamps in the living room you can also enjoy a cosy atmosphere in the evenings. The flat is situated very quietly in the nice building of a former hospital at the edge of Honfleur, but nevertheless really very close to the shops, restaurants and everything you are looking for as a tourist.

If you are going to stay only one week you could even renounce at using your car. There is so much to see and do in Honfleur itself. If you want to go to Trouville, Deauville and Le Havre for example you better take the public bus anyway. It is comfortable and cheaper than the parking fees you would have to pay.

As you see I am still enthusiastic about Honfleur and the flat. I’ll definitely come back.

Thank you, Andy and Kevin.

Honfleur is a beautiful, working fishing port and a regular port of call for leisure sailors from both sides of the Channel. There is always some activity in the harbour, and plenty of cafés from which to observe. Honfleur is ideally situated on the Normandy coast, at the mouth of the Vallée d'Auge. We are close to Le Havre and Deauville, and the Normandy Landings beaches are little over an hour away. Honfleur doesn't close at the end of 'the season' it is open and interesting all year round. There are lots of festivals and concerts throughout the year. From the traditional Fête des Marins to Fête de la Crevettes celebrating the local tradition of shrimp fishing in October. The Russian Film Festival runs every November. You can get here easily from UK by air from London City to Deauville or by other carriers to Paris; by ferries to Le Havre, Caen, Dieppe, Cherbourg or Calais; or by road via the Channel Tunnel. We are close to frequent trains from Paris and have a good local bus service.

Other Activities: Naturospace - indoor tropical butterfly park

Golf: There are 12 golf courses in Calvados - 8 of them are under an hour's drive from Honfleur. The nearest at Saint Gatien is only 10 minutes' drive away.

There are a further 7 courses in Eure, the closest being the magnificent Champ de Bataille which is about an hour away.

There are also 11 courses in Seine-Maritime - 6 of them are within an hour's drive.
