a cottage 3 KM from Honfleur, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms
The lodging of the press is conveniently located 3 KM from Honfleur, close to everything that makes the fame of this region of Normandy: Honfleur and the old harbor, Deauville, Trouville and its beaches, the countryside, gastronomy and all the typical products of this region, cheeses, cider, calvados etc. The cottage is located in the heart of a 4-hectare property, consisting largely by hilly pre occupied by our two horses. Kids love usually meet them with some apples or carrots for s' to make friends. The house is located away from nearby small roads, after a tarred road without end, and entent no traffic noise, allowing to enjoy the sounds of nature. It is likely that you will be woken in the morning by the sound of birds. The major advantage of our cottage is the quality of the immediate environment, with a view of a valley planted with apple trees.
The cottage was built in a typical old press Normand, built in timbered and flint. It features a large room to the ground floor with an open kitchen to the living room and a cathedral ceiling. A large fireplace allows for wood fires for fun in all seasons. A ground floor still, a bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet suspended. The living room is south-facing and opens up onto a sunny terrace all day and overlooking a small orchard and meadows.
Upstairs, a large bedroom (20 m2) has a double bed and a single bed and also a private bathroom with toilet, the same as the bottom. In total, the cottage can easily accommodate 5 people in two bedrooms.

Nice little cottage
Was a little heard to find. Perhaps sending out a specific internet link to the location as well as the directions would make it easier to find.
Property is clean and well presented. The open fire was a necessity as the weather wasn't great. That said, it was lovely and cosy with the fire going. Including more firewood for guests would be welcomed if there is cold weather.
We had a power cut on one evening which meant we relied soley on the fire for warmth which wasn't really good enough. The owner did apologise for this on our departure. Fortunately it happened late enough in the day that we were all off to bed soon after.
I managed to make a mistake on the original booking which meant I booked for three days but one day earlier than we wanted. Which meant the property wasn't booked for the last night that we needed it. Fortunately the property wasn't booked out to anyone else and the owner was very understanding and let us stay without additional charge. Most appreciated.
French Country Charm
We enjoyed our stay in the cottage (gite) and would go back the next time we are in France.
Thank you Julienne, we also enjoyed your visit !
Fabulous place to relax in the French countryside
Mr and Mrs Foures' 3 uniquely designed and beautifully decorated gites are in a peaceful location a short drive from Honfleur. They are set in immaculate gardens and have all the facilities you would expect. Olivier gave us some fantastic recommendations for nearby shops and restaurants and we happily filled a week in the local area. Would highly recommend a holiday here if you are looking to relax in the French countryside. Catherine and Richard, UK
Wonderful retreat in the country but close to everything!
In the midst of a holiday between Paris and London, we decided to take a few days in the country, far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The cottage was the exactly the remedy we needed. The side patio offered a beautiful setting to put our feet up after a day of exploring nearby Honfleur or the DDay beaches. The kitchen was well equipped, there was a grill outside but no charcoal to cook with. The market was close by and the village on Honfleur was a wonderful tourist destination. Olivier was very welcoming and we got good advice in local resutaurants and sites from he and his son. I would highly recommend this spot for a small family or 2 couples. We loved having a couple of sheep in the 'backyard' and all the beautiful flowers around us as we sat outside. Wonderful vacation spot. Would definitely go back if I was in the area again.
Thank you for your appreciation. We will be happy to welcome you next time, with coal this time!
Exceptional and beautiful property! Wonderful stay
We had an exceptional vacation at Olivier's beautiful property. A rustic and traditional Normandy-style building (formerly a "pressior" ) that Olivier himself has refurbished (he is an architect), the house has all the necessary amenities for a self-sufficient vacation and lots of country-home touches, bed linens, furniture. The kitchen is well-equipped and clean with a full oven and ventilation system. Great showers and both beds were very comfortable. Again, the property has a rustic feel, stone floors, old wood beams - it's clear that Olivier intended to preserve the charm of this unique structure. We had great weather during our stay and took advantage of the wonderful patio outside with weber grill, outdoor furniture, yard, fruit trees and grazing sheep right next to the house...very comforting and relaxing. Honfleur by car is a ca. 5 - 10 minute drive from the house; if you enjoy being a little bit outside of town, in the middle of the gorgeous Nomandy countryside - this is the perfect place. Two tiny drawbacks: the internet connection was not so fast and we sometimes had problems with the connection, but that was no real problem as we were't there to use the internet. The couch was a bit old and scruffy, but Olivier mentioned he would be getting a new one...so that's taken care of. Olivier and his family were extremely helpful and kind, gave us great tips for the region, especially places to eat and where to shop for food. Some wonderful experiences! We can't recommend it highly enough! Thank you for a great vacation!
Hello, thank you for taking the time to write your kind appreciation.
