Very comfortable one bedroom self-catering apartment that accommodates 2 or 3 guests. The flat is ideally situated in the very historic heart of Honfleur, offering postcard views over the most photographed harbor of Northern France; from the living room, you will be able to enjoy your meals while watching the boats passing by. The flat is sunny and bright throughout the day; the rising sun in the living room; in the early afternoon, the sun shines in the bedroom, ideal for a nap!; in the afternoon, the sun lights up the kitchen for the preparation of your evening dinner.
The apartment is located on the second floor in a 17th century building with lots of character (timber in the stairs and slates on the front ( typical of Honfleur craftmanship) that has been recently refurbished. Also, It provides the latest mod cons and hifi equipment for a relaxing break -including international sat- HD TV/radio, dock station for smart phones and double glazing.
To enjoy your night, the king size bed (140*200cm) and its mattress have just been upgraded to a 4-star luxury quality.
For a French person like myself (Nathalie, the owner), food is essential to the French way of life. The reason why my kitchen is as well-equipped as yours at home; nothing is missing, you will really be able to cook like a CHEF!
From a touristic point of view, Honfleur is one of the most visited historical towns of France, dating back from the Middle Ages and there is plenty to enjoy from shops, art galleries, restaurants, artisan bakeries and 'charcuteries'. All of them are at the foot of the building (your car is useless). Be sure to visit the famous churches and museums, or perhaps explore the picturesque villages within the lovely countryside of the 'Pays d'Auge' with its stud farms and numerous thatched Norman houses surrounded by apple orchards.
Just 10 miles away from Honfleur, you will reach Deauville with its casino, beach and race track.! Etretat and its famous cliff is one hour away without forgetting the landing beaches that are 1 hour 30 away.
All the maps and necessary touristic information are to be found in the flat and I (the owner) will be delighted to help you with any more information if you wish so. The tourist Information Center is just 2 minutes'walk from the flat!
Last but not least, an underground secure parking (8 minutes'walk from the flat) is available on arrival with a supplement.

Lovely apartment, lovely view, lovely manager
Nothing but good things to say about Honfleur, the apartment, and Nathalie. The flat is well-maintained, spacious (for France), and has a wonderful view of the water. Nathalie left flowers, bread, and an apple tart as a welcome gift, as well as suggestions for places to visit and eat. If you are planning a trip to Normandy, Honfleur is a must and this apartment is an excellent base.
Top of the world
This Honfleur flat is breath-taking and exceptional. We immediately felt at HOME. Natalie is a most gracious and generous host. We were welcomed in typical French fashion; fresh flowers, patisserie and local beverage. Nathalie has great concern for the comfort of her guests. She is attentive and engaging without being intrusive. She made a separate trip (unnecessary) to bring us an additional floor fan.
The breeze through the open windows was delightful and sufficient.
Her flat gave us the opportunity to experience the French lifestyle. The location and harbor views were stunning and ever-changing. We shopped the marché, a local boucherie - Au Fin Gourmet and all of the Patisserie Boulangerie shops. The well equipped kitchen made cooking a treat.
Each evening we gazed out the window enjoying the energy and activity; never wanting to go to sleep.
Merci beaucoup Nathalie. Thank you for sharing your view from the top of the world.

Fabulous comfortable stay
We loved our stay here. The flat has a wonderful view over the harbour and is close to all the attractions in the old city. It is an ideal location. Nathalie is a thoughtful host. The amenities she provides made it very easy and comfortable for us. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was genously equipped with quality items, and the sheets and towels were also good quality. We travel a lot and we would rate this accommodation very highly.
Great spot to explore Normandy
Three things stand out:
1) Outstanding host. Nathalie could not have been nicer, more helpful or accommodating. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with her. She went out of her way to make the apartment feel special, such as fresh flowers and chocolates. Other hosts we've met, or who were incognito, could learn a few things from Nathalie.
2) Location. Honfleur is the perfect small town on the coast if the English Channel. Others towns are mentioned as good places to explore the WWII beaches, but while Honfleur is not the closest, we visited the other recommended places and I'm glad we chose to stay there. It's attractive and compact. Plenty of tourist-type restaurants, many of the them quite good, or you can visit the local butcher or fish merchant, all within walking distance, and cook for yourself.
3) The apartment. Yes, much like just about every other apartment in France, access is up a spiral staircase. But as staircases go, it's not bad. My wife and I are both in our 60s and we were not challenged. Still, I know it can be an issue for some people. Beyond that, the apartment is very comfortable and relaxing. Open, airy, with out-of-the-park views of the harbor - just the kind of place you want to come back to after a day a sight seeing.
During our five-week stay in France, Nathalie and this apartment are at the top of the list of our experiences.
So, the next time we're in Normandy, this is where we'll stay.
Wonderful place to stay
Me and my partner had a wonderful time in Honfleur, which was made all the better by the great location and view from this apartment. Everything was as described and we received a warm welcome from the owner Nathalie, who even took us to a nearby, free car park so we had somewhere safe to park and brought us back so that we didn't have to carry our luggage. Overall, a perfect place that suited our needs.
Experience of a Lifetime!
We were a senior couple from USA & stayed at this apartment for a week. It was the best experience of our 3 week trip to France! Its hard to imagine a better location in beautiful Honfluer - right in the middle of the action with eye popping views of the harbor and a charcuterie, patiseries, boulangerie, wine/cheese shop, and more, just steps away, and yet the apartment was not the least bit noisy. Comfortable furniture and bedding, super hot shower, hot towel rack, and the perfect size for 2. If you want to cook, everything is close by and, because Nathalie is a cook herself, the kitchen is very well equipped. We didn't have to buy any spices, oils or paper products during our stay. She even supplied the coffee. Nathalie is so helpful and accomodating you'll think you're staying at a freind's place. With tons of restaurants, shops, galleries, and fascinating people, Honfluer has to be the very best spot to use as a base to fascinating Normandy, France. One word of caution, the apartment requires a hike up 40 narrow steps. (We used them to "earn" our daily ice cream fix) Did I mention the apartment is over an ice cream shop? Oh, my - you MUST do this!
Honfleur is a very popular historical town. ideal for stepping back into the Middle Ages with typical wooden houses, churches and old cobbled streets. Honfleur is an excellent base to explore Normandy. Bayeux, le Mont-Saint Michel, Etretat, Deauville, Trouville, the gardens of Giverny are all within easy reach between between 20 minutes' and 3-hour drive.
