The house is beautiful, there is a private garden which overlooks Honfleur, but you can also see the view from the extension, therefore no matter what the weather it is a lovely relaxing house. There is the added bonus of a shared garden that you can access if you wish which has swings and a kids summer house. Our kids in particular loved this as they made friends with the children from the other house and because it is a secure garden they could have the independence to explore. They also loved the ponies and goats. Honfleur is a 15 min walk. Beaches are a 15 min drive. The owner Isabelle is really nice and greeted us when we arrived and gave us lots of useful information about things to see and places to eat. I would definitely recommend La Bergerie.
This beautiful property is perched on the hillside above Honfleur. The photographs do not do it justice. It is all kitted out to a very high standard. The grounds are private and the views are wonderful across the valley to the Pont Normandie. It was so quiet and peaceful we spent most of our days just relaxing at the property. It is dog-friendly as are many of the shops and restaurants in Honfleur. The owner, Isabelle, was an excellent host who speaks perfect English. It is a gentle downhill walk to the centre of town which is buzzing with bars and restaurants.
The entrance to the grounds is shared with another larger property, as are part of the grounds but La Bergerie is situated above the other property and not overlooked at all.
Visited here at a really busy peak time. La Bergerie is set in a fabulous location with spectacular views of Honfleur. It is secure with electric gates and to gain the views it is in an elevated position - ok for certain vehicles but definitely not motor bikes due to the shingle covered steep drive way. The host is extremely helpful and nothing seems too much trouble as she is willing to advise and suggest useful information. The gite itself is tidy with all the necessary items you need. It is pet friendly although the garden is not enclosed however there is a great dog walking wood about 10 mins drive away which is ideal. A 10 min walk into town is ideal. Highly recommended and we would return. Our dogs made 2 new friends - namely the resident goats!
La Bergerie was a wonderful place to stay. It is the perfect setting; a rural feel but just a stroll down into the fabulous old town of Honfleur. The owner has decorated La Bergerie beautifully and provided everything you could possibly need to a high spec. There are three seating areas inside and more outside. She has paddocks with some goats to the side, so no neighbours overlooking. There is lots to do in Honfleur; museums, walks, shops, churches and an abundance of restaurants overlooking the harbour. Perfect whether passing through or as a base for a longer break.
