Ferme Saint Simeon

Sunlight playing off the grounds at Ferme Saint Simeon might remind you of an Impressionist painting. And for good reason: Claude Monet and his fellow artists devised the Honfleur School while drinking cider under these very apple trees. Today this 17th-century Normand house offers 35 airy accommodations with oak parquet flooring, lush fabrics and fine furnishings; many overlook the Seine estuary. The new Bistro La Boucane in the "chaumière of Monet" is now open and welcomes you. Enjoy local and seasonal produce reinvented by Executive Chef Sébastien Faramond and Chef Jacques Maximin, “Meilleur Ouvrier de France.”

Hotel Tip

Take a painting lesson with the resident artist in the hotel’s rose gardens and sit where Monet captured the same landscape on canvas.

In Monet's backyard

What a wonderful hotel in a beautiful, timeless setting! We were greeted by lovely staff with pear tarts and champagne and that set the entire tone of our 2 night stay. Amazing authentic French breakfasts and perfect bistro food in their more casual new restaurant for dinner one night. Rooms are nicely appointed and perfectly attended to as well.

THE place to go in Normandy-bar none!

Situated in picturesque Honfleur, Ferme Saint Simeon is a 17th century property with 21st century luxury. A retreat for Monet, Corot and Baudelaire, FSS is a secure gated mini-paradise.The well-appointed spa, excellent haute cuisine, superior service (Xavier is the ultimate Concierge and celebrating his 30th year in residence), as well as great views, combine for a superb Virtuoso property. Highly recommended by our fav Virtuoso consultant, Rebecca Falkenberry, we knew it would match our admittedly-exacting expectations. But she's been doing that for over 20 years! While you may be tempted to seclude yourself in this idyllic Normandy paradise, walk into the lovely village. There is an abundance of fine places to shop, including several patisseries-all of which offered splendid macarons-our dessert delight. Don't neglect the easy drive to the WW II sites and Bayeux, site of the eponymous Tapestry chronicling the 1066 Conquest of England. Bonne journee!

Ferme Saint Simeon is a beautiful hotel in a very peaceful setting. The friendly staff took care of us. All the meals we had at the hotel were wonderful. The chef provided vegetarian entrees that exceeded my wife's expectation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Honfluer.
