Travelling into Honfleur - some advice please!

by thefrogsmum

Hello!
My husband and I are driving off the eurotunnel at Calais and taking a slow drive through Normandy and down to a rented gite in Brittany. We have decided to stop off on the way at Honfleur for a night. Can any one tell me if it's easy driving in or should we park somewhere (any free parking???) and walk in? We have a baby with us so it would need to be a reasonable distance if we walked into town. We have not booked a b&b or hotel as we have the option of the extra night at our b&b we're booked into from the following night so we thought we'd just take a chance and try our luck for a room. Any tips? kerryjanewilson@yahoo.co.uk

We always park by the marina. It is right by Old Town Honfleur and nearly everything you may wish to see. There are restaurants and shops to visit and, of course, the gorgeous harbor with painters working away on the quai.

BTW, I notice a couple VT France specialists have answered you here so click on their names beside their answers. This will take you to their Home Pages where you can check their France Travel Pages. There are lots of excellent Tips, web links, photos and reviews available for you to use in your planning.

Have a wonderful visit to a beautiful town.

Ah well, not a couple (so far) but pedmar knows everything there is to know so do click on his name and check his France Travel Pages, especially Honfleur since that is your interest.

Bon voyage.

Travel Tips for Honfleur

How 'bout them apples!

by rexvaughan

You probably know that Calvados is a department in the region of Haute (or upper) Normandy. It is one of the few that does not produce wine, but makes up for it with apple brandy and cider as it is a major apple growing area. There is a sweet or soft cider (Cidre Doux) which is light and smooth and goes particularly well with cheese. There is a more alcoholic one (Cidre brut) which is less sweet and goes well with meat. Then there is one in between (Cidre demi-sec) which is recommended with red meat. Then there is Calvados, an apple brandy. It is quite strong as brandies tend to be but very nice. Of course, for dessert you usually can't miss with apple pie. While you are in the prime apple region don't miss out on these local specialties. I am not a great fan of brandies, but love the apple cider and the apple pie.

Honfleur's charming village streets

by twoinluv

Take a day and stroll the charming streets in Honfleur. My husband and I joked that we expected Belle, Gaston, or the beast to jump out at any time and break into song (from Beauty in the Beast).

The streets are full of art galleries, stores, cafes, and the like. There are little stores that sell the local apple brandy called Calvados. The people are friendly and it can be a very relaxing way to spend a day.

"AN ARTISTS DREAM HONFLEUR."

A beautiful harbour. My photograph looks just like the postcards for sale. The tall, slim houses in the background look fantastic and gives Honfleur such prescence and character.

"GREAT VIEWS"

In the distance you can just about see the Normandy bridge. When you walk along this area situated by the Garden of Personalities you are overcome by the peacefulness even though you are not far away from the busy shopping streets.

"GARDEN OF PERSONALITIES"

I loved this place, even with the dark clouds brewing up above us. Its a tribute to people who have contributed to France. So much thought and hard work has gone into it. We were searching for the miniture Monets Garden/Water lily and when we did find it were pleasently suprised. Beautiful. It certainly did do the real thing justice.

Honfleur on a rainy weekend in November.
Lovely anyway.

The Vieux Bassin
It is flanked by quaint, irregularly built, 16-17th century houses.

Attractive houses and streets
Honfleur is and old fishing port retaining a number of attractive streets flanked by tall timber and slated houses, which have long made it the delight of artists in search of the picturesque, lacking in most other resorts on this coast.
