The studio is located in Quartier Saint Catherine, the historic centre of the old fishing port of Honfleur. Just a short stroll away from the Vieux Bassin and its many bars and restaurants, it is also well placed for shopping and for visiting the town's museums and galleries.
On arrival you pass through the entrance hall of my house to discover the studio tucked away at the end of a courtyard garden. The only sounds you will hear are the singing of the birds at dawn and their early evening chatter.
A modern spacious room with high ceilings, it has a private shower room and a small kitchen area equipped with a microwave oven, fridge & ceramic hob for preparing light meals.
There is a comfortable king size bed and a sitting area with armchairs, tv and dvd player. A single bed can be added for a third adult or child (at additional cost) and a baby cot is available.
Its doors open onto a small private terrace, ideal for taking breakfast or relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening.
The studio is self catering.
All bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided as are tea and coffee, shower gel and shampoo.
HONFLEUR AND THE REGION

The local beach is a 10 minute walk away and the well known resorts of Trouville and Deauville are 20 minutes by car.

Please do not smoke in the studio. However smoking is accepted in the garden.
Please do not throw anything other than toilet paper into the toilet.
