There is very limited private parking in Honfleur, but several large car parks close by. Although these car parks are PAYANT, for the benefit of our guests we provide a free parking permit for use during your stay. This permit MUST be left in the cottage upon departure. This has proved to be one of the major benefits for our visitors.
There is an instruction leaflet at the apartment along with tourist brochures.
Electricity is very expensive in France and we would encourage all guests to turn heaters down while they are away from the apartment and to be "Environmentally friendly". Please leave the heaters on HG at the end of your holiday.
The Normandy region
Normandy is the gastronomic area of France. The beautiful historic Norman towns of Rouen and Caen are easily accesible, as is Bayeux with its famous tapestry. Close too are the Normany beaches; the cliffs at famous Etretat with its golf course overlooking the sea; Deauville, with its close neighbour Trouville, famous for the casino and film festival and long sandy beach and promenade. The Seine flows through Honfleur and pleasure boats and cruisers take holiday makers on day trips. If all this seems too much for a leisurely holiday, then just sit and people watch whilst enjoying a drink or look at the artists busy at work, until it's time to choose your restaurant for the evening!
Honfleur, with its magnificent XVth century wooden church "Eglise de Sainte Catherine" , Saturday market, bars and restaurants, swimming pool, tennis courts, park, lake and beach has something for everyone.
