Enjoy a wonderful 3 or 4 day break to the picturesque coastal town of Honfleur. It’s hard not to love the rugged maritime charm of the Vieux Bassin, Honfleur's old harbour, which evokes the maritime Normandy of centuries past. The quarters around the Vieux Bassin have their own character. The eastern Enclos, around the church of St-Etienne, is packed with interesting buildings and the western area slopes up to the splendid wooden church of Ste-Catherine; in a district where you will find the town’s main museums dedicated to the arts.
Honfleur's ports are amongst the prettiest in France. Glorious historic houses jostle for position on the quays, as do galleries and restaurants. Packed with cultural sights, Honfleur has a wealth of attractions to delight its many visitors. This little maritime city, which has somehow escaped the ravages of time, has managed to preserve the traces of a rich historical past, which make it one of the most visited towns in France, with its picturesque backstreets and old houses. Its international renown is partly due to the authenticity of its narrow paved streets and timber-framed house-fronts, its little shops, charming hotels and typical restaurants, but also due to the variety of its monuments and the wealth of its cultural and artistic heritage.
