What a superb residence. It is every bit as charming as it looks in the photos. It is located right in the centre of Honfleur, about 110M to the le vieu Basin. It is a very well equipped and uniquely decorated apt/house, to a very high standard. I am sure that Martial the owner whose expertise in stained glass is evident through out the residence. I enjoyed the coffee and chocs that Martial supplied. These little attentions to detail made our stay very enjoyable. Aidan & Barbara, Cathal & Anne from Dublin Ireland.

The position was perfect, the residence immaculate, and the owner was wonderful
He is truly a nice person who was very helpful
It was a great stay
My husband and I stayed in for a week in June. The lodging is in the quiet and lovely old section of Honfleur; it's beautifully restored--with original glass work done by the owner, a prominent historical glass restorer and glass artist, handmade Moroccan rugs, comfy furniture, and lots of reading/conversation nooks. No convenience is lacking. We felt both at home, and refreshingly "away." M. Mayel is so generous with his knowledge and advice on restaurants, out of the way villages, etc. Getting to know him added immensely to the pleasure of our stay.
A beautiful and luxurious apartment with everything required to make your stay comfortable. Well placed for exploring Honfleur as well as being a good base to explore the surrounding area. The quirkiness and artistic flourishes of the apartment makes the stay unique. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here with our two children aged 7and 10.
Things we've enjoyed doing:
Treetop adventures near Caen (Beauregard nord)
Boat trip from the marina
Walks around the incredibly beautiful town
Drives around the area and exploring local towns.
Buying fresh seafood and cooking it ourselves ( E leclerc is the best supermarket for reasonable prices as is The smaller intermaché at Equamaville but this has less choice).
Would highly recommend this apartment and area for families of non-buggying age (lots of cobbled streets).
The apartment is very recently renovated 2 bedroom unit steps from the center of Honfleur. Mayal was an excellent host and met us right at the unit to help with unloading and parking our car. The place is fully equipped and we found everything to be in good working order. The listing and pictures were accurate. The only issue we had was with the bedding (sheets, pillows) which we suggest needs to be upgraded to be at least the level of a Mercure.
Overall a nice place to stay.
