Unique charming fisherman's cottage in the heart of Honfleur
This gorgeous old fisherman's cottage was like being Alice in Wonderland falling down the rabbit hole. It was like no other rental accommodation we have stayed in. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage boys who were like kids in a candy store when they first went in to explore this quaint, authentic cottage. It was on a miniature scale with low exposed wooden beam ceilings and low door lintels and steep, narrow winding stairs; yet the cottage had plenty of room with an open living, dining and kitchen area. The cottage is over 3 levels with the living area on the ground floor and the bathrooms on the third level. There were 4 double beds and a captain's bunk for a single (sleeps 9). It was clean and tastefully furnished. There was a full kitchen where one could easily prepare a family meal, 2 full bathrooms and a washing machine in the kitchen. There was stable, fast internet - a must with 3 connected teenagers and parents who need to keep in touch with business. The cottage is a 2 minute walk from the centre square of Honfleur where one can find the beautiful St Catherine's Church and the old basin with its myriad restaurants. There are many fabulous bookstores and art galleries to explore. The most tranquil find of our trip was a walk to the Grace Plateau up the steep hill behind Honfleur town where there is Our Lady of Grace Church, a lovely forest for the children to play and gorgeous view over Honfleur, Normandy Bridge and the estuary of the Seine River. We have no hesitation recommending this accommodation to anyone wanting an authentic experience n the heart of Honfleur.
Janelle - thank you for your lovely review . Glad you had a good stay
Charming house, but not for everyone
The property has been renovated, but not practical. The reviews about steep stairs are not to be underestimated. We were unable to bring suitcases up to the rooms. The toilet in the kitchen leaked and was unusable. The cleanliness left a little to be desired, especially when the owner expects the renters to leave the house clean. There is a high level of humidity in the house and since we were unable to turn on the heat, there is a musty odor that is quite unpleasant. On a positive note, the beds were comfortable and there was hot water. The location is also amazing.
Very convenient location for walking into town to dinner and shopping. Comfortable accommodations.
Très agréable séjour!
Très bon séjour, dans une maison accueillante. Située très pres du centre de cette magnifique ville d'Honfleur. La maison est très bien équipée et correspond vraiment au descriptif fait sur le site de location.
Merci! A la prochaine
Soggiorno Honfleur dal 30/7 al 04/08/2015
Eravamo 7 adulti e la casa di Rue du Puits ci ha accolti benissimo! Completa di ogni cosa, pulita e arredata con tanto gusto. Silenziosa, in una strada molto caratteristica, ricca di negozietti e ristoranti. In 5 minuti a piedi si è sulla piazza principale e sul Veccio Bacino, con le sue decine di barche a vela e i palazzi d'epoca.
Tutto molto, molto bello. Siamo rimasti tutti incantati. Lo consiglieremo sicuramente ad amici.
Unica nota negativa, essendo la via molto stretta, la difficoltà di parcheggio per il carico e scarico bagagli.

Séjour agréable pour ce week-end ensoleillé entre amis. Le gîte est pratique ( à proximité des commerces et du port), très propre, sobre et agréable, quoique le salon manque un peu de lumière. Une des chambres est charmante et très spacieuse, 2 sont très charmantes quoique moins grande, mais la petite en haut peut seulement accueillir deux personnes de gabarit moyen. Les escaliers en bois, même si étroits, apportent un de poésie au gîte!
