"Excellent accommodation in the best town in Normandy"
Modern safe, secure and roomy flat close to the heart of this picturesque beautiful town.
Loved the abundance of sea food restaurants within easy walk. Loved the balcony with a view for wine with cheese and bagget or croissants for breakfast.
Unusual to be able to leave the car safely parked in the basement car park and just walk.

We chose the flat because we needed elderly access and this property has a lift. It was spacious with a balcony. Only draw back was the exit to the balcony had a lip and my elderly parents stumbled on this otherwise it was great.

"Fantastic apartment - Perfect location"
We stayed in this lovely apartment for 1 week in july 2011 and would recommend it highly. If returning to the same area we would book again without hesitation
Honfleur itself is a very picturesque harbour town with great restaraunts.
The apartment has three double bedrooms with 1 ensuite bathroom, large lounge,functional kitchen and best of all a wonderful balcony with a great view. We enjoyed a good few bottles of red wine while watching the world go by in the evenings.
Secure underground parking with your own space is also very handy.
Thanks very much Lorraine and Richard.
