Honfleur

Published on October 2, 2015 by Chris Robinson

Honfleur

The pretty port of Honfleur nestled in the Seine estuary is delightfully picturesque. Many years ago, wealthy Honfleur shipowners had tall town-house type homes built around the harbour which was a prime location. Today the commercial ships belonging to the shipowners have been replaced by yachts and the town is seen as a rather trendy destination. Houses, museums, shops, and galleries line the port creating a vibrant and eclectic atmosphere.

The eastern quarter of the town is packed with interesting buildings while the western area contains the town’s main museums dedicated to the arts. Central Honfleur’s southern area is more discreet, but well worth exploring too for its architecture, including St-Léonard church and the restored fountains. Honfleur’s beauty has long attracted artists, with works to be seen both in the town museums and in the modern galleries that abound.

 

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
