This mattress (latex) has been appreciated by a lot of guests and it is the first time somebody complains about. Of course, the mattress will be verified.
But we are now having the floor changed (oak wood), with some other details for a better comfort.
So we do hope you will appreciate and we will welcome you again with much pleasure.

"Honfleur - our base in Normandy"
We loved Honfleur. A city like Caen would have been closer to many sites, but it is now a pretty big city. We were glad with our picturesque village. We rented an apartment for the week and it was terrific. We went to the grocery and got coffee to brew, cream and butter for our morning croissant or brioche and planned our day. A boulangerie was half a block away and it was great. On the day we were driving la route du cidre, we first took the shore road to Deauville, Trouville, Hogate, and Cabourg. What a fine drive - wonderful scenic towns, each distinct and attractive. The Cider Route was a nice rural drive, but it being a weekday, the cideries we stopped at weren't open. That's o.k.though since we really prefer wine to cider anyway.
We drove to Etretat to see the alabaster cliffs there, crossing the gorgeous Pont du Normandie. We had just arrived and were admiring the cliffs and the people trudging up the hills when the skies opened and first began to pour. Then it began to hail - sideways. We were lucky enough to find shelter in the restrooms along the boardwalk during the deluge, but the walk up to the summits is just a dirt path. I can imagine the trip down might have literally been a trip down.
The surprise highlight for us was the Bayeux Tapestry. What a fascinating piece of history. And the audio guide that accompanies you along the tapestry is wonderfully done. We really liked the town as well, enjoying the river walk and the cathedral.
Mont. St. Michel was a long drive, but overall well worth the trip. Oddly enough, we got a kick out of the town leading up to the abbey. I know some find it exceedingly tacky, but we thought it fun. We had the famous soufflé-like omelets while there as well. I now know that there is another place outside of New York City hotels that can charge you $30 for a couple of eggs. Not complaining - you have to do it,right?
We saved the WWII sites for our last full day in Normandy. Peggy's dad had come to France via Utah Beach, a short time after the invasion there. My dad came through Omaha Beach on D-Day plus one. So we were interested in seeing both of these spots, as well as St. mere-Eglise, near Utah Beach, where the American paratroopers were deposited slightly off target from the intended drop zones. The church there still has a parachute on one of its steeples as a reminder of that day.
The cemetery at Omaha Beach is everything people say. It's numbing to see all of those crosses, Stars of David, etc. lined up, seemingly forever. It's hard to imagine, looking at the beach today, the carnage that took place there.
Utah Beach now has a brand new museum, with excellent mementos of that action. The video is most impressive there as well.
We went to another site on the way from Omaha Beach to Utah Beach. Grandcamp Maisy is a site of recently discovered (mid 1990's) German bunkers and munitions. Now most battlefields we tour these days are pretty sanitized and tourist ready. Not so here. First, it's hard to find. Second, a ratty one-person trailer is where you pay and get a photocopy (in plastic) of the various bunkers and weapons. The paths between the sites on the map were muddy or watery. We both fell down on separate occasions and were quite the mess by the time we finished. We had to go underground through a bunker to get out of one section. We found this by trial and error since it wasn't exactly shown on the map. Having said all this, we loved it. In many ways, it is easier to imagine soldiers being stationed here and fighting indirectly,some 5 miles away from Utah Beach, just using the howitzers and other long range equipment.
Back at Honfleur, the Saturday we were there was market day and this was wonderful. Besides displaying some great looking produce, they were roasting chickens and ducks, stirring huge vats of paella and couscous. We bought cheese and wine and loaves of pan du Normandy. Honfleur has many,many restaurants. We ate twice at Bistro des Artistes, recommended by our landlady. It was a tiny place, maybe eight tables. Ann-Marie ran a one-person show. She greeted, took orders, that clomped upstairs to cook, then served. She made her own bread, pate, smoked the salmon herself and probably lots more I'm unaware of. It was pretty memorable.

We were greeted by the owner who gave us a brief tour of the apartment which is very well decorated and presented.
Although you are staying in the heart of Honfleur you are located on a quiet side street where you can still people watch from the windows.
The bedrooms were very comfortable, one has a view onto a very small courtyard which, although you cannot access, it's a surprising and lovely feature.
The town is very tourist orientated and there are plenty of restaurants and galleries to experience.
Car parking is available only a short distance away but sometimes this is full, if so there is on-street parking further up the hill which is closer than the free parking about 10 minutes away.
I was really sad to leave this holiday let which is a measure of how much I enjoyed the break and apartment.
