Guestbook comments from the owner

"Nous sommes lyonnais et avons passé 5 semaines de vacances dans la maison de location de Mr. et Mme DANEELS à HONFLEUR du 19 Juillet 2014 au 23 Aout 2014, et nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour ainsi que l'accueil chaleureux des propriétaires.

Belle maison avec tout le confort, belle situation face au Pont de Normandie et la possibilité de descendre facilement à HONFLEUR à pied. Nul besoin

d'utiliser la voiture pour gagner la ville et le port.

Nous avons apprécié la situation au calme de cette maison, et après de superbes promenades dans la ville, nous étions contents de quitter la foule

pour retrouver la tranquillité des lieux.

Nous gardons un très beau souvenir de notre séjour et recommandons cette maison à tous ceux qui désirent faire une halte de quelques jours ou

quelques semaines dans cette magnifique ville de Normandie, pleine de couleurs dont les peintres ont fixé la beauté sur leurs toiles.

Merci encore à nos propriétaires pour leur accueil."

super séjour

  • 5 of 5

logement très joli et très propre.

La propriétaire très aimable nous accueille avec une bouteille de vin et des biscuits. Elle nous conseille pour les visites et les restos.

Des meubles de jardin nous permettent de profiter du soleil dans un très beau cadre.

Une boulangerie est très proche avec de très bonnes viennoiseries.

Honfleur, très jolie ville avec de belles petites rues, des commerces, des artisants, des galeries d'art,, des restos, est facilement accessible à pied.

Nous avons pu mettre nos vélo dans le garage. La route des chaumières à vélo, c'est super!

En bref, une belle région à visiter et une agréable maison pour se reposer, n'hésitez pas!!!

Charming, Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and cosy cottage, everything you could wish for, with lovely wood burner for the colder evenings. Monika was very pleasant and helpful with everything we needed! 10 minute walk into Honfleur with numerous restaurants and cafes! We enjoyed the large Sunday market in Trouville where we brought fresh bread, cheese and fruit for lunch, also great market on Saturday mornings in Honfleur. We will be returning next year, hopefully in the spring when can make use of the lovely garden!

beautiful house in a pretty setting with sea views

  • 5 of 5

This house was lovely clean and neat. Everything was provided so no need to take tea, coffee, shampoo, etc . Monika (the owner) was very nice, explaining how the appliances worked and how to reach the town, shops, places of interest etc. Plus she lived locally so that was nice in case we needed anything. The beach is within walking distance through the town ( approx 20 mins ), town is about 10 mins, it's a bit steep walking back , but there is plenty of parking if you drive down. Les 2 Ponts is a nice place to eat, good ,very reasonable 3 course lunches and the crème brulee is delicious. Most of the restaurants serve very nice food and are open during the afternoon too .Honfleur is a good place to stay as its very close to visit Deauville, Trouville, Pont Leveque and Le Havre. We had sea views from the garden which was well maintained and the garden furniture was better than the photos,2 very comfy loungers as well as the deck chairs. We would highly recommend this house .

Wonderful cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

A really comfortable, clean, well appointed cottage, everything you could want. Easy quick walk into the heart of beautiful Honfleur. We can thoroughly recommend it.

Monika was great: speaks excellent English for those who struggle to remember that old school French and she was very helpful when it comes to places to visit etc.

Why did we come home???!

Lovely cottage in Honfleur

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable gite. It served our needs very well as we explored Honfleur and Normandy. The photos accurately reflect the interior and exterior. The property is close to the old downtown area of Honfleur but away from the hustle and bustle. Monika is a gracious host, who is always pleased to answer questions and provide area guidance.
