Review 3361: Owner, Artist's Cottage in Honfleur


Review by J. Spicer from US

2bed/2bath cottage in Honfleur, Normandy


February 23 to 26 2007, 4 days


Loved the seaside village of Honfleur. Excellent location in town. Close to other buildings but very private.

Nearby Amenities

Close to everything. Shops, restaurants and Saturday morning market within two minutes.

The House/Apartment

Very peaceful apartment, well maintained. Appointed with everything you could ever need from pots and pans to hair dryer. Lovely fireplace. Three stories with large patio on middle story. Two complete separate apartments or use all in one. It's in a row of apartments but in not attached by walls to any others.


Private patio, good size with table, chairs, and umbrella. No pool.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Lovely furnishings, very tasteful. Not too busy or overdone. Furniture in good shape and comfortable. Large dining area.


Beds were comfortable. Bedroom upstairs was very good. Bathrooms were very European, not American, but worked well. There is a shower and bathtub plus two separate toilets.


Enough of everything, normal quality and there are two kitchens. Did not cook while I was there.

Problems or Bonuses

Surprised at how close we were to the water in one direction and to heart of the village in the other. You must be fit as far as walking to and from parking, but your in the village, so you don't really need a car. The whole town is very safe, you can walk at night and never worry.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The reality of the place accurately reflected what was published on the Internet.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, this is such a great place and priced better than any hotels in the area. I would stay again.

Things to do in this area

Beach, shops, drive, site see, culture, museums, eat local fabulous French food. What more is there? Honfleur is very well kept secret.
