Cherry Tree Cottages
About the home
The cottages are situated a few moments walk away from the banks of the Seine, where the river widens out to embrace the sea and are set in the village of Berville sur Mer which is close to the historic town of Honfleur, considered by many to be the Jewel of Normandy.
Set amongst three and a half acres of orchards and landscaped gardens, they provide a haven of peace and tranquillity within an area of historic interest, stunning scenery and rolling farmland.
All our cottages have two bedrooms one with a double bed and one with two singles, a fully fitted kitchen with a washing machine, a comfortable lounge area with a sofa bed provided if required and an outside patio with individual barbacue.
The cottages are floored throughout with Maple style plank flooring, sealed and polished. As well as being stylish and sophisticated, these floors are ideal for easy maintenance holiday wear.

It is the most outstanding preserved port in the area. The vieux basin in the centre of town is still a haven for yachtsmen, ocean going and river cruising alike. Its sea bound entrance is through the swing bridge governed by the Lieutenance, the home of the Kings Lieutenant dating from 1606.

It is a nice quiet place, good access to Motorways, Honfleur and the Normandy Coast with friendly and helpful owners. Accommodation is simple but good and comfortable. Could do with WiFi. Also maybe some milk and flowers when we arrive or a cake would be a nice welcome. But it was very good value.
