All the llife of Honfleur is visible from this flat, high street, harbour, boats and ships and all. The first of many restuarants is two steps from the front door. Natalie met us on arrival, left us with a beautiful vase of flowers, a bottle of beer (to watch football !); a bottleof local cider, pastries and bread for the next morning. One of the window opens to give panoric views of the town, perfect for sipping wine and people watching. The flat is small, quirky, extremely well equipped and comfortable. The building is a traditional old Honfleur townhouse, the stairs are the same age and wind up to the second floor. I am fairly mature and had an injured knee but managed OK. Natalie helped to get our baggage in and out of flat on arrival and departure. There is a TV and Natalie kindly arranged an extra sports channel as we were interested. Little touches like docking stations, varied lights, oyster knifes et al were appreciated. As I am sure you can tell, We would highly recommend this flat and will be revising when possible.
My wife and I have been travelling overseas regularly for many years and this is definitely one of the very best apartments we have stayed in. Honfleur, and the Vieux Bassin area in particular, are really lovely and Nathalie's apartment directly overlooks the Vieux Bassin. It is an old building but the apartment is fully renovated with everything you need. We stayed for a week but could happily have stayed longer. There is lots to see in Honfleur and there are lovely walks in and around the town and we also enjoyed just spending time in the apartment looking out on the scene below, busy with restaurants, cafes, boats on the Bassin and other activities. Nathalie met us on arrival and showed us where everything was and how everything worked. As an added bonus, we were delighted to find that Nathalie had left for us a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers as well as a bottle of very nice red wine, bread, pastries and gateaux. We recommend this apartment highly.
This is the second time we've stayed at Nathalie's lovely little apartment in Honfluer and it suits us perfectly! It's small but perfectly formed, has everything you need (in fact it's fantastically well equipped), it's warm and comfortable and the parking space is a real bonus (and only minutes away). Nathalie is always efficient, friendly and helpful too. Above all, the location is unbeatable and the view over le vieux bassin is stunning! We will definitely be back!!
Although it's quite a trek up a spiral staircase once there the views over the basin are superb. The apartment is well equipped and kitchen is well stocked but a bit small, as is the bedroom. Welcome pack is generous and the vase of fresh flowers was appreciated. Nathalie was friendly and helpful. The decor was a little tired and would benefit from some freshening up.
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.
