Just a few steps from here !

Come and taste all the flavors of Normandy by visiting the pretty little port of Honfleur less than 5 minutes away by car! Classic Norman art, tradition and gastronomy are all there – you just have to enjoy everything without moderation.
Let yourself be impressed by the many painting galleries and the museum showcasing the work of Eugène Boudin, a native of this place and an illustrious representative of impressionism, alongside with Claude Monet!
Unless you are attracted by Erik Satie, another native of the area, who will draw your ears to his house to the High Street (rue Haute) where you may say: “of course I know this song”.

Then, after strolling through the small streets of the Sainte Catherine neighborhood (quartier Sainte Catherine), just move away a little! Leave the joyful tumult of the terraces of the Old Basin behind you and go to the Tripot garden (jardin du Tripot)! As if you were Mr. Potter, you’ll have to take the Norman “Diagon Alley” to discover a surprising setting behind the shop windows and storefronts.
Ask us for the secret of how to make this magical discovery!

Less than 40 minutes away !

Nearby, Normandy opens its doors to its most beautiful sites. Between the Auge region and the loops of the Seine, our geographical location will bring you fast and easy access to many legendary places of our beautiful region. From Etretat to Deauville via Pont L’Evêque, you will be able to climb our most famous cliffs in a few hours, taste our best cheeses and watch the sun set on the beach where all the American movie stars flock to every year.

If you are interested in the monuments of French cinema, don’t forget to stop in Villerville on your way back to Honfleur! This small seaside resort was renamed Tigreville in the 60s for the shooting of the movie “A Monkey in Winter” (Un singe en hiver). Gabin and Belmondo liked it so much, so they kept coming back and this place became a landmark for other stars seeking to escape from media noise. We will tell you where to have some shellfish on a lounger with your feet in the sand. But don’t tell them, it’s just between us!


Not to be missed !

A bit further, the unmissable D day beaches (Plages du Débarquement) are important historical places you can also visit during the day. Right over there, the Caen Memoral (Mémorial de Caen) is a symbol of peace, but it also pays tribute to all those soldiers defending freedom. On the other hand, Caen also holds a more ancient history with its abbeys and its gigantic thousand-year old castle located in the heart of the city, as a testimony of the glorious era of William the Conqueror leaving from the neighboring port of Dives Sur Mer to invade our cousins, the Bretons! (They have since regained their independence…).

Then come back by the road of the Nacre Coast (Côte de Nacre) and stop in Cabourg. This charming resort has stayed the same as when the first sea bathers were soaking in the water. Free from the madness of promoters, its shores have magnificent 19th century villas in the middle of which the Casino has stood proudly for more than a century. And if you are “in search of lost time” (A la recherche du temps perdu”), note that some sources say it is here that Marcel Proust found the inspiration for Volume II of his oeuvre while contemplating the young bathers having a quick dip. They even told us the exact place where he used to sit and if you are interested, then we will tell you too!
