    Nice little hotel Campanile

    by

    This is a good chain, with great restaurant all over France. I have stayed here once as usually I stayed outside the city coming with my car.

    The one time was a couple years ago with my father. THe service was nice and the breakfast very hearty and choices.

    Family should be ok if 4 or less. Cheaper than if staying in the city center.

    Unique Quality: free car parking and nice breakfasts

    Directions: its at the entrance to Honfleur on the D580 road coming from the A29 expressway. You can walk to town but we go closer with the car.

searching for rental car

by elioglu

Will be arriving in late Sept. (22-26) and want to rent a car from Deauville train station or Honfleur. Can't find any agencies. Can someone help?

Re: searching for rental car

I had the same problem and ended up renting one in LeHavre. It is a fairly short drive from Honfleur.

Always useful to look up Yellow Pages first.
In France this is:
http://www.pagesjaunes.fr

For searching use: LOCATION D'AUTOMOBILES : TOURISME ET UTILITAIRES
then ad the " Où " -- where? - just type in Deauville.

You may get quite a few possibles.

Travel Tips for Honfleur

Ancient Church

by Geoff_Wright

A short walk, gently uphill, of about 1,5 km from the town centre,finds you at the "Côte de Grâce" , where you will find wonderful panoramic views over the Seine estuary, the harbour and the sea. There, you will also find one of the region's oldest sanctuaries Chapel Notre-Dame de Grâce, built between 1600-1615. I had a feeling this church was dedicated to Mariners, but I may be wrong..

Hanging around the harbour

by Oana_bic

Impressionism is in the air here ...

Hanging around 'le bassin' ull notice people painting their canvas or washing & preparing their boats...

thats very bizarre but I dont think there are people living in the flats around the harbour - they look so small and ancient and in a way dodgy...

Musée d'Ethnographie et d'Art populaire Normand

by dimilag

Situated rue de la prison, this museum invites the visitor to travel through the years. Nine rooms completely reconstructed as ancient interiors present authentical and traditional Norman objects : furniture, clothes, books.

Honfleur

by smirnofforiginal

Honfleur is a seaside town with no beaches and is centred around the old harbour or the Vieux Bassin.

It's a picturesque town with a relxed, laid back atmosphere but because of its close proximity to Paris (approx 200km) it can become busy with day trippers.

Honfleur - the Normandy

by MikeAtSea

The picturesque seaside town of Honfleur is situated at the Seine estuary, opposite Le Havre. Honfleur boasts a long, rich history and seafaring tradition. Back in the 15th and 16th centuries, it was from here that the first voyages left for Canada and the New World.
The whole town is virtually an outdoor museum, full of half timbered houses and cobbled streets. One of Honfleur’s most characteristic sites is the Old Port with its tall narrow houses, their wooden façades topped by slate roofs. In the 19th century, Honfleur attracted a steady stream of artists, among them many Impressionists who took their inspiration from the town’s picturesque setting.
Honfleur’s native son, Eugène Boudin, an early Impressionist painter, has a museum named in his honour.
With its unique attributes, Honfleur today is one of the most popular vacation spots in northern France. The town is centred on the Old Port, which still emits a seafaring atmosphere. Ste-Catherine’s Church and its freestanding bell tower dominate the harbour’s northern corner. The church was built from wood during the second half of the 15th and the early 16th centuries after its stone predecessor was destroyed in the Hundred Years’ War. The vaulted roof that looks like an overturned ship’s hull emphasizes the fact that the structure was created by local shipwrights.
The town’s narrow, cobbled streets have to be explored on foot.
Museums, shops, cafés and restaurants add to the attractions in this outdoor museum setting.

Honfleur has to be explored on foot. Following are major sights you should not miss during your exploration of the historic centre:
Ste-Catherine’s Church
The imposing wooden structure was created by the town’s
shipwrights between the 15th and 16th centuries. The vaulted roof
resembles an overturned ship’s hull. The bell tower stands apart from
the church, both for structural and for safety reasons.
The Lieutenance
This 16th-century building with a tiled roof and corner turrets is the
sole remainder of the former fortifications.
Salt Warehouses
Dating from the 17th century, the two huge warehouses served as
storage for the salt needed by the fishing fleet to cure its catch of
herring and cod.
Musée Eugène Boudins
Named in honour of the early Impressionist painter born here in
1824, the museum has a large collection of Impressionist paintings
from Normandy.
Marine Museum
Located in the former church of St-Etienne, this small museum
features a display of ship models, carpenters tools and engravings.
Museum of Ethnography and Norman Folk Art
Located next to the Marine Museum, the exhibits occupy a couple
of houses and a former prison dating from the 16th and 17th
centuries.

Honfleur offers the opportunity of an excursion to the most important locations involved in the historic events of 1944. Operation Overlord, as the D-Day landings were code-named, involved the largest military operation in history. In the early morning of June 6, swarms of Allied landing craft hit the Normandy beaches and tens of thousands of soldiers stormed ashore, ready to attack the German lines.
Colleville is the site of the American Cemetery. The majority of the nearly 10,000 Americans killed at Omaha Beach are buried in this 170-acre cemetery on land given to the United States by France as a token of their gratitude. Here 9,386 marble crosses and Stars of David stand in perfect alignment on a plateau above the beach. A memorial contains the Tablets of the Missing, and a map outlines the battle sites of the Normandy Beaches.
Another point of interest along the D-Day landing areas is the small seaside town of Arromanches that features an important museum dedicated to the landing operation. Here one can view models and films that re-create the entire operation along the D-Day beaches as well as illustrate the importance and logistics of Port Winston. A short distance off shore, remnants of the artificial port can still be seen. These war relics are a testimonial to an extraordinary industrial and maritime achievement.
