About the property

'Gentle, quiet and cozy decor source: Houses Channel No. 144 in August-September 2014

In the press :

In the heart of the charming town of Honfleur, in the rue du Puits, we have gathered, restored and decorated the two granaries of a fishermen's house to make it a charming apartment: "Julia's hiding place".

From this old fisherman's house from 1850 emanate today "bohemian chic" tunes made of a mix of vintage spirit, industrial style and contemporary pieces.

Located not far from the market place and the Sainte-Catherine church (70 meters), in the heart of Honfleur but sheltered from the comings and goings of tourists, the place blends into the half-timbering facades. Behind them hides the universe of Julia's hiding place: warmth and friendliness, elegance and traditional charm, all wrapped up in this touch of mystery and nostalgia that is the attraction of secret places.

Behind the front door, a typical spiral staircase evokes the life of centuries past.

At the top, like a secret, well-guarded, hidden from view, Julia's hiding-place is beautifully named. We are safe from the world. The room to which the staircase gives access overhangs the roofs of the small town. We move from the large living room to the room by a bridge or 'little drawbridge' which spans the stairs, as one slips into a secret passage. The tone is given, the hiding place of Julia took advantage of this old loft to make a nice cozy nest.

There is a cabin side, a return to childhood and lightness, something playful and joyful.

Finally it is these Honfleur places we dream of discovering these fishermen's houses which we know as the facades. {...}

In the living room is furnished a sofa bed, a dining table made of two sawhorses and a weathered wooden tray, bistro chairs and a large closet hidden behind heavy cotton curtains. The living room could be a basic place. Far from it, Julia's hiding place is a cocoon that is not only welcoming and elegant, but also very original thanks to the presence of unexpected or slightly off-kilter objects such as the retrieved and patinated drumstick as a coffee table. fine oak planks or the beautiful Venetian mirror.

In the kitchen, glasses, cutlery, coffee cups, nespresso machine, linen cloths, large wooden board are available, in the room with pointed roof, linen bed linen, fruit boxes as a bedside table, school desk and sheep skins on the floor bring originality.

As for the colors, they are strong colors that dress the walls: khaki, green and black.

A halo of clarity is brought in contrast by the bleached floating parquet, which highlights the beautiful structure of the beams preserved in their original oak color to keep the authenticity of the place.

Intimate, romantic, sweet and comfortable, but not pretentious, Julia's hiding place is like the realization of a child's dream, that of the magic-tinged refuge, where to spend a family holiday or a romantic weekend.

Jolie cachette

  • 5 of 5

La cachette de Julia, un joli nom qui fait rêver, tout comme les photos du site tout droit sorties d'un magazine de décoration. Mais qu'en serait-il à l'arrivée ? Le rêve a rejoint la réalité car tout y était : la gentillesse du propriétaire, l'ambiance, le décor et même le dernier numéro de "maisons normandes" dans lequel un article très élogieux était réservé à la cachette de Julia. Félicitations à nos hôtes qui ont su transformer avec élégance ces 2 petits greniers tout la-haut perchés. Nous ne manquerons pas de faire connaître la cachette autour de nous.

Très bon accueil et bel endroit.

Logement propre et très bien positionné.

Possible a 4 (remarque importante : la salle d'eau est dans la chambre sans porte donc ça demande un peu d'organisation)

Même après 10 ans de séjours réguliers à Honfleur, il existe encore des endroits secrets et magiques à découvrir. La cachette de Julia en est un parfait exemple. Cosy et intimiste, aménagé en toute simplicité avec beaucoup de goût dans les combles d'une maison de pêcheur, cet endroit est un petit bijou de confort et de quiétude. Un grand merci à Karine et Didier pour leur accueil chaleureux et leur gentillesse. Merci également pour nous avoir fait découvrir le restaurant « L’Endroit » et sa cuisine inventive. Amitiés
