As soon as we visited Honfleur in 2004, we thought it was stunning and bought a holiday cottage in the region within 6 months of our first visit. When we had children, we needed a property that was larger and more child friendly, yet still retained rustic charm and a rural setting. That is why we loved this house. The garden is large, safe and accessible for children to play in. The house layout is also great for when we visit as an extended family.
Compared to our first cottage, this house is spacious and light and perfect for a growing family. We also loved that we could walk to the local bakers and mini-mart.
