Enjoy a truly lovely drive along the Normandy coast toward Honfleur. Along the way you’ll delight in superb shoreline views and discover the charms of little villages such as Cabourg, Trouville and Deauville.
Hailed as one of the most charming towns in all of France, Honfleur is historic, charming and picturesque. Its position at the mouth of the Seine River makes it both a sea and river port and the hundreds of fishing boats and yachts that line the quay make for colorful photographic opportunities. Narrow streets in the Vieux Basson meander past slate-fronted houses and 17th century salt warehouses which have been converted into art galleries. The Eglise St. Catherine, built entirely of wood, is fascinating to visit as is the Maison Satie, the home of beloved composer Erik Satie.
You’ll enjoy lunch at one of our favorite Honfleur restaurants.
Honfleur is also surrounded by verdant pastures, where happy cows yield the perfect ingredients for fabulous cheeses. And the area’s apple orchards produce fruit that is world-famous for tarts and Calvados, the delicious apple brandy. After lunch, we may enjoy local cheese and Calvados tasting.
