Honfleur house description

House in Normandy France: A beautiful, large house situated in the protected Côte de Grâce area of Honfleur, located on the path up to the magnificent Mont Joli and the historical 17th century Notre-Dame-de-Grâce chapel. Only a 5-minute walk down to the center of Honfleur, the Place Sainte Catherine, and the old harbour. Tastefully renovated, the house maintains its 19th century charm and architectural details. On the ground floor is a spacious living room with TV, English satellite, DVD/VCR player and portable stereo and the very large newly fitted, fully equipped kitchen. There is a lovely patio in front with barbeque and patio furniture supplied. The first floor comprises two large bedrooms, one double, one twin, and two bathrooms, both en-suite, one with shower and one with a luxurious deep bath. The second floor comprises another two large bedrooms, each with two single-size beds and two bathrooms, both ensuite, one with shower and the other with a luxurious deep bath.

A wealth of activities a short walk from the house: Beautiful and historically rich, Honfleur is ideally positioned between the Seine estuary and the sea. A traditional fishing village, Honfleur has been home to many well-known painters, writers and musicians such as Eugene Boudin, Erik Satie and Charles Baudelaire. Take in its rich maritime heritage and architectural and natural beauty. Honfleur is one of only 161 towns in all of France to be awarded 'four flowers'. Many leisure activities are within a short walking distance of the house: swimming pool, tennis courts, Naturospace, beach, large public garden, museums, a long, romantic promenade starting from the harbour all the way to the beach, shopping, antiques and many excellent restaurants. The weekly Saturday market and the Biomarche on Wednesday are superb for purchasing fresh produce, cheese and meats. An important pilgrimage, the Chapel Notre Dame de Grâce is an exhilarating 10-minute walk up Mt. Joli; the path starts in front of the house with breathtaking views all the way.

An ideal base from which to explore Normandy: We think you'll find our home to be the ideal base from which to explore Normandy. It's only a 15-minute drive to the fashionable coastal resorts of Deauville and Trouville. About an hour drive through magnificent lush, rolling countryside is Falaise, birthplace of William the Conqueror where you can visit his castle. Drive along the coast toward Cherbourg stopping along the way in the charming and picturesque seaside towns of St. Vasst-la-Hogue and Barfleur, only two of the dozens of delightful seaside villages within an hour drive. One of the finest and loveliest zoos can be found in Jurques near Caen, only about an hour drive. The abbeys that William the Conquerer and his queen, Matilda, had built are also in Caen as is his castle built in 1060. A day trip to the D-Day beaches, which start at only an hour's drive away, is an educational and moving experience and definitely worthwhile.

Relax at the house: Its setting in the beautiful Côte de Grâce affords the most splendid views and is quiet and peaceful yet only a 5-minute walk into town. Tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished, fully equipped with every convenience, our cherished home will make for you a perfect home away from home.

                          Only a 2-hour drive from Paris, Honfleur has the distinctive feature of being both a sea and a river port due to its position between the Seine and the sea. Honfleur is nestled in lovely countryside rich in history and in the countryside are surrounding small villages with their own delightful traditions. Attached to the district of Honfleur are 13 lovely villages to explore. Discover each ones history and specialities from churches dating back to the 12th century to forest adventure circuits, cider producers and distilleries. Visit local farms producing cider, calvados, foie gras, cheeses, apples, pears and redcurrants. Also a must to see and drive over is the architectural masterpiece, the Pont de Normandie, only a 5-minute drive from the house. The view of this bridge from the house is spectacular and particularly dramatic at night when it is lit, with a view of the lights of Honfleur below.

                          Other Activities: adventure circuit in the woods, cinema, museums, art, Naturospace, a calvados distillery, local farms producing foie gras, cider and cheeses
