Overview

Honfleur Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Perfect location, close to sea, old harbour and restaurants. Peaceful courtyard.

This is a lovely 110 year old cottage in a calm area in the centre of medieval Honfleur. It has an enclosed courtyard which catches the afternoon and evening sun, so is perfect for dining outdoors or enjoying your aperitif. It has an excellently equipped kitchen, a living room and shower room on the ground floor; upstairs is a main double bedroom with washbasin, and another bedroom/living room but with full size proper single bed. There is a TV (British Sky channels and French), DVD player, i-pod dock, CD player, radio and video player. The cottage is in a tranquil lane with no traffic but you can unload outside and there is free parking around the corner. It is a few minutes walk from the bustling heart of Honfleur with its cobbled streets, pretty old harbour, Saturday market and many restaurants and cafes. From the bedroom window you can see the slate rooftops, the church of Saint Leonard and the surrounding hills. Once you have seen Honfleur you will never forget it!

Parking: The cottage is in a narrow road for use only by the people who live there, so there is no traffic. There are four spaces to park in this road, where some of the houses are set back. One of these spaces is in front of my cottage, but does not belong to me. You can park here if it is vacant, otherwise there is free parking around the corner in a car park or free on road parking. You can always load and unload in front of my cottage.

Laundry facilities: There is no washing machine in my cottage but there is a launderette a couple of minutes away.

Bed linen and towels: Please bring your own duvet covers and towels. However, bed linen and towels are available at extra cost.

Guestbook comments from the owner

le séjour était vraiment très sympathique et nous avons beaucoup aimé cette petite maison pour son calme, sa tranquillité et sa chaleur d'accueil et surtout son petit coté anglais que ma fille a adoré. Elle s'est amusée à refaire vos puzzles et à regarder quelques films en anglais avec grand plaisir. Nous avons vraiment eu le sentiment de nous trouver un peu comme chez nous.

So good we're going back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in 2007 in September and loved the place. It's exactly what it says in the description. It is a small cottage but the rooms are cosy rather than cramped and the kitchen is very well-equipped, better than we expected.If there's going to be three of you then you may wish to consider that the path to the main bedroom is via the small bedroom. As a couple, this was not a problem (we used the second bedroom for our luggage and clothes). We found the bed in the main bedroom perfectly comfortable and we were grateful for the fully-functioning central heating on the few nasty days we had. On the good weather days, sitting out in the quiet courtyard with a glass of wine, munching on rustic bread, Neufchatel cheese and rabbit pate, all from the amazing Deauville market, was just heaven. There are lots of personal touches in the house, from books and games (some left by previous tenants for the benefit of later ones) to strategically placed helpful little notes from the owner. This isn't an impersonal holiday chalet. Actually, it felt more like we were housesitting for a friend. Replies to queries (by email) to the owner were prompt and helpful, as was the map of where to find free parking (a godsend!). We found the locals very friendly and helpful and wonderfully tolerant of our execrable French. Local restaurants are plentiful and pretty good to excellent (L'Ecailleur in the Vieux Bassin got our top marks). There are some wonderful museums and art galleries right there in Honfleur and interesting places within easy drive. We're going back again this September. 'Nuff said.

Beautiful Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in this beautiful little cottage. It's location is absolutely perfect for exploring the gorgeous Honfleur, just a short 5 minute walk to town but due to its location quiet at all times. The owner is exceptionally helpful and quick to help in anyway possible. I can't recommend this property highly enough and hopefully we will return again in the future.

A Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this charming cottage despite the weather which unfortunately was rainy but not unexpected at this time of year. The cottage is situated in a quite residential area within close walking distance of the Vieux Bassin and Museums which we are well worth visiting and we ate delicious food especially at L'Homme de Bois with it's welcoming open fire.

The kitchen was well equipped and we had breakfast and lunch in most days there is a boulangerie 2 mins walk away and a lovely Saturday market where we bought oysters. Despite the weather we had a very pleasant stay in Honfleur and the cottage was a welcome shelter from the storm.

I could imagine it really comes into it's own when one can use the little courtyard for eating or an evening aperitif when the weather is warmer.

Lovely quirky little house - well located.

  • 5 of 5

Nice little French house in the heart of Honfleur - great courtyard for sitting in to escape the bustle of town - loads of kitchen utensils to make the most of fresh Normandy produce. We loved the quiet of the little street - but able to stroll to shops and harbour in 5 mins. Would definately recommend as suitable for couples who enjoy France. Petite but perfect.

Small & Quiet, OK for 2 people

  • 5 of 5

Small but perfectly formed, a lot of charm and everything you could want.

A Spanish Taverna at the bottom of the road (young crowd but OK for a drink/tapas) and a boulangerie opposite that. Both 1 minute walk from the property.

The courtyard was nice, war and secluded and we ate here everyday (there is a BBQ in the shed).

I've seen people complaing that it was "disgusting" having the bathroom off the living area ~ erm, how is that more disgusting than having it off a bedroom? Get a grip folks.

Someone else said they were dissappointed there was no washing machine??? You're on holiday!!!

I would recommend it to friends and when my next visit to Honfleur is due, I'd go again.

Honfleur
Car: not necessary

Honfleur is a perfect location and there is so much to do. You can wander around the quaint cobbled streets, watch the world go by at the many cafes and restaurants along the famous old harbour (vieux bassin), stroll out to sea, marvel at the oldest wooden church in France, visit the composer of Gymnopedie, Erik Satie's, birth home, visit the museums and art galleries in the place where impressionism began and spot where they, and later Raoul Dufy, painted! Or you can swim, play tennis, play golf, cycle and walk in the surrounding forests. Further afield are the Bayeux tapestry, the Normandy landing beaches, or the cheese and cider routes through pretty towns and villages. The seafood is delicious and not to be missed; but also make sure you try Calvados, the local brandy made from apples. Honfleur has so much to offer and once seen you will always want to return. The narrow, tall, slate clad houses of the old harbour make it one of the most photographed and prettiest towns in France.
