The
Experience

Down a country lane minutes’ from Honfleur, this modern, arty, brick and timber-clad house is full of light, surrounded by an immense lawned garden with a discreet swimming pool. You sleep in great comfort in fresh, inviting rooms with huge beds and a fascinating array of artwork: watercolours, pastels, photographs, ink drawings. Bathrooms are modern and immaculate. You breakfast continental-style, and generously, with homemade jams and organic honey from the owners’ own hives. Dinner is a treat, too. The big guest sitting room is wonderfully quirky, with a mix of furniture old and new, and the Merciers themselves are delightful.

Reviews

We had a wonderful night staying with Brigitte and Philippe. My partner, my son, my dog and I were all made to feel very welcome. The room was wonderful and perfect for us as a family, the grounds were amazing and fabulous for a walk with the dog. We had dinner with them in the evening and were made to feel part of the family, as well as having excellent food. The breakfast was a final joy including their fantastic honey!

We arrived early from the morning ferry and were made completely welcome, offered coffee and breakfast. The accomodation is beautiful and the hosts (Brigitte and Phillippe) could not be more helpful.

Local points of interest from Brigitte Mercier

  • 10mn on foot from Beehome, the small road on your left, just behind the chapel, leads to Mount-Joli – a magnificent panorama overlooking the valley of the Seine and The Normandy Bridge which connects Honfleur to Le Havre
  • Honfleur is classified "seaside resort". Situated at the entrance of Honfleur, the "Butin” beach arranges all the equipments to welcome you comfortably and in complete safety during the summer season, beach has a playground for children.
  • There’s so much to visit: The Eugène Boudin Museum if you are a fan of Impressionism and special tribute to Erik Satie, composer and pianist, who was born in Honfleur (concert, exhibit)
  • TRADITIONNAL MARKET – every Saturday morning. ORGANIC MARKET – every Wednesday morning. FISH MARKET – from Thursday to Sunday.
  • French people lunch between 12:30 and 2:30 PM, and dinner between 7:30 and 10:00 PM. If you wish to avoid the crowd, lunch at 12:00 and dine from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. Restaurants rarely serve between 2:00 and 6:00 PM. France uses the 24hr system! 6pm = 18h!
