Le Vieux Port
Honfleur between the tidal estuary of the Seine and the " Plateau d'Auge " welcomes you at any season.
As both, a sea and a river port, but also a port of cell, the city of Honfleur has preserved its rich artistic and historic heritage.
With the great discoveries, Honfleur was the birthplace of numerous navigators, sailors and captains. Samuel de Champlain (born in Brouage) organized from Honfleur several departures to Canada and particularly in 1608 with the founding of Quebec.
The river Seine has always inspired artists : painters, musicians, writers, poets.... Set by the Estuary, Honfleur not only gave birth to seamen but also to many artists in the 19th century...
Since the 19th century, Honfleur is the treasure of the artists, Eugène Boudin gathered around him many fellow artists as Jonkgind, Monet or the poet Charles Baudelaire. Impressionnism was born.
Discover the witnesses of this famous heritage through its picturesque streets, old houses,
St Leonard's Church, discovers St Catherine's Church, old maritime district with its separate belfry.
Many events and festivals helds in Honfleur , by examples : - jazz festival in august , - "la fête de la crevette" wich means " the shrimp fest" : the grey shrimp is a local speciality and the inhabitants of Honfleur await this festival with much excitement, as it brings a sense of fun to the picturesque port in autumn - the Russian film festival is in November

"Fantastic place to stay"
We stayed here for ten days and enjoyed every second.
We were welcomed by Anne who was efficient, friendly and helpful despite poor health which we apreciated.
The facilities were pretty clean, modern and all user friendly.
The view was exceptional and even better than it looks on photos.
Honfleur itself is a real gem and we could easily walk to the beech and restaurants were literally on our doorstep without causing us an issue in terms of noise etc
The best place to eat from our perspective was The Hamlin. amazing food and service and they treated us and our son beautifully.
Its a very relaxing apartment and we would love to return in the future.
The biggest plus is having everything on your doorstep so you can just walk out into it.
Only snag at the beginning was the car park situation was a bit unclear but we sorted it and will share the information with you so there is no confusion. The deal is that its 4 Euros a day but each day cars are checked about 8.30amish so you do need to get up early and put a ticket on so your car has a ticket for that day, it does not run over from the night before. However, we forgot one day but only had a warning and no fine so they are much more forgiving than UK parking people! I suppose thats not tough!

"My family and I had a wonderful week in this delightful apartment"
The location of this apartment is outstanding. Wonderful view over the harbour and central to everything in Honfleur. It is well equipped and very comfortable. My family had a most enjoyable week and Anne was very friendly, kind and helpful, coming to Le Havre station with us to make sure we had no trouble getting our train tickets etc. Would have no hesitation recommending this property.
