La Bergerie de Lucie - Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)
This former flint and brick croft has been lovingly transformed into an independent gîte de charme with a wonderful view of Honfleur old town, the ‘pont de Normandie’ and the Seine estuary. It is within ten minutes walk of the old port of Honfleur. Ideal for four people.
Set in the 5 acre grounds of the historic Pavillon de la Reine, these two properties nestle in the beautiful Normandy countryside within ten minutes walk of the Honfleur town centre along a quiet road. They originally date from the 17th/18th centuries. La Ferme is a large yet comfortable timber framed house that sleeps 10 and La Bergerie is in flint and brick and sleeps 4.

About the Owner
About Isabelle Mountain
The properties belong to an Anglo/French family. My husband and I bought the properties in 2003 and decided to restaure them and transform them into comfortable and welcoming places for you to stay. We brought up our two daughters there for 8 years and then spent 6 years in Paris, but after my husband passed away last summer, I decided to carry on managing the properties and to return to Honfleur. I get help from Amanda and Craig Ferguson, who also live in Honfleur and organise everything if I'm not around. We are all committed to making sure that you stay is memorable and that you leave determined to come back.
Honfleur is a beautiful and picturesque town and the properties are ideally located, only 10 minutes walk from the harbour and the town centre, and in a peaceful 5 acre ground.

Tasteful, spacious and calm close to town.
We (a family of four) accompanied by Granny had a great week here. A wonderful welcome - nothing has been forgotten and the house is lovely, spacious, comfortable and practical. Close enough to walk to town yet has a feeling of the country with a lovely big garden. Also close to the road out if taking day trips. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful stay we had. Absolutely gorgeous house. Warm and cosy but large and spacious with such tasteful decor. We spent every evening enjoying the open fire and the wonderful views of Honfleur. And there was so much to do in the surrounding area during the daytime with children. Thank you Isabelle for a lovely stay and for being such a helpful and thoughtful host. We had a truly enjoyable stay.

The Pavillon de la Reine in who's grounds these properties reside was built by Louis XVIth in the 1780s.
