Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Situated right in the heart of the charming Normandy port of Honfleur, within a private, gated complex of traditional style fisherman's cottages. Built from plan in 2004 with solid block work, soft pastel render and finished with double glazed windows ensuring excellent insulation qualities and a peaceful evenings sleep with bedrooms overlooking the private garden. A self contained 'Duplex' cottage with a stairwell leading you from a large lounge area on the ground floor to the two bedrooms on the first floor, both overlooking the South West facing garden. The property also has the advantage of a large, secure, parking space, underneath the site and accessed by remote. 

There is a supermarket, boulangerie, butcher, delicatessen and pharmacy etc. within a couple of minutes walk of the cottage. You will also have an access key from a private gate within the complex leading you into streets immortalised by 'Claude Monet' (Information plaque erected) where within a few minutes you can walk directly into 'Place St Catherine' the famous Church re-built in Oak by the local shipbuilders after Henry V burnt down the original. 

There is a busy food market here every Saturday from 9am until midday, over 100 restaurants in and around the harbour catering from crépes & local cider to Michelin *** restaurants, there is something to suit everyone. A superb new visitor centre is attached to the library where you may research further information and guide brochures on current local events and places of interest to visit. 

The Normandy beaches can be accessed easily following the beautiful coast road to Deauville. Pegasus bridge, Caen memorial, Arromarches, the US cemetery at Omaha beach and Saint-Marie-Eglise have all been upgraded in 2014 for the 70th anniversary of D-day with some superb new presentation scenes. 

The Bayeux tapestry is only an hours drive away, Giverny is 1hr 20min where you can visit the House and gardens of Claude Monet and the American museum of art is within a stones throw. Enjoy the end of the day with a cool glass of wine in the secluded garden.

About Graham and Gina Woods

Our names are Gina and Graham and we live in Kingswood Surrey UK. We fell in love with Honfleur when touring France with friends and have returned over the years in classic sports cars and Harley Davidson's. 
Les cottages du port was a concept model in the agents window and we made a snap decision to build from plan with the developer flying in to Biggin Hill two weeks later to pick up a deposit. Graham loves his cars & bikes so top of the list was the largest slot in the secure underground parking, the result is close friends with exotic cars love to drive to Honfleur and visit the 100 plus local restaurants knowing their pride and joy is locked safely away. Eating around the harbour at sunset you can understand why the French impressionists used to meet here!

Graham and Gina Woods purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Graham and Gina Woods chose Lower-Normandy

Living in the SE of England with good connections on the Eurotunnel the charming port of Honfleur can be reached within 2.5 hrs drive from the Eurotunnel. With over 100 restaurants around the port we can decide to leave the UK at short notice in the afternoon and be sitting in a restaurant around the port watching the sunset at 8pm. There is always a busy market on Saturday mornings where you can really enjoy the ambiance of the French lifestyle. During the winter months there is always a Russian Market around the port before Christmas, Classical Music in the 'greniers a sel' and the port looks beautiful decked out with Christmas decorations. New Year's eve is a big celebration here, welcoming log fires in the bars and restaurants make Honfleur an all year destination.

What makes this cottage unique

• Private underground parking bay (No.56) below the complex accessed via a remote control steel gate, stairwell access for key holders only. The last and widest bay in the car park, large enough for a 7 seater 4x4 with room to spare! • Private South West facing garden, enjoy the sunshine until sunset • Private gated pedestrian complex • New build insulated external doors and double glazing ensure a cool summer and a warm winter • Modern High Pressure water supply, piping hot showers and an efficient waste • All electrical sockets protected by Hager cut outs • Private road leading to a gated loading bay to the side of the complex to ease your departure • The cottage is within a few minutes walk from all shops and attractions with a supermarket opposite the entrance

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great week in this clean, modern property which is brilliantly located literally minutes away from all shops and restaurants in this attractive and bustling Normandy town. A large parking space beneath the property is a massive plus point. Whilst there is an absence of WiFi, there is so much to do in the town that this is a relatively minor issue albeit one the owners should perhaps consider. Overall however, a great property in a top location. We would love to return.

Lovely accommodation with very homely feel. Nice to have garden area, & underground parking a bonus. Perfect location for supermarket & town centre where totally spoilt for choice of bars & restaurants. Very quiet spot despite close proximity to town centre. Honfleur is a beautiful area.

Our magic Christmas time in Honfleur .

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely house : well decorated , comfortable furniture (armchairs , beds ..) linen of good quality . At the start we had difficulties to connect the boiler .I'd suggest explanations in French .We deplore just the lack of some amenities such as a percolator or a frying pan . The house is ideally located not far ,at all, from the city center . One of the most advantage is a secure underground garage .The environnement is very quiet and people friendly .
