Full of character and classic Normandy style
We loved our stay. Beautiful location. Lovely private and secluded garden in the middle of beautiful countryside. House full of character and lovely views. Great part of the country. Classic Normandy. Lynne
Not quite delightful
I'd go along with half of the strapline. Hameau Pottier is large and privately situated but, unless you have a private jet, you're not going to reach Honfleur in ten minutes and, as for delightful: not quite. The house is undeniably handsome from the outside and comfortable enough on the inside but Hameau Pottier cries out for a little attention. The lounge, for example, large as it is, contains two highchairs but not a single lamp. A couple of standard lamps are a must! Small things, like chalk for the pool room, and the provision of an extra key, need to be attended to. The TV didn't work at all when we stayed. How about a radio in the kitchen? And how about WiFi? Not a necessity, perhaps, but it would be a welcome addition for many guests and it would beat directing them to McDonalds in Honfleur. And paying extra for linen is one thing - but we've never been told to strip our beds in any of the many places we've stayed in over the years! Customer service was similarly wanting. I messaged twice after our stay before getting a reply and am yet to receive confirmation that the damage deposit will be returned, although the owner did kindly tell me not to worry about the wine glass we broke. A courteous 'We hope you enjoyed your stay...' would have been appreciated, following our visit. It is these touches that cause people to recommend places to others.
We spent a fabulous week here in July 2009. The location was fantastic and perfect for a family with 3 small children. The house was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Would recommend highly!!!
Very good house and garden - highly recommended
We enjoyed our holiday at this house.
The place was very well equipped and was ideal for a family holiday with children as the garden was big enough for the kids to run around.
Large rooms and good layout with excellent facilities. Clean and well maintained.
Thoroughly recommended for those who want a quiet rural retreat that is not too far out of town.
Great location, stunning house
We spent two weeks at this house in July 2008. We enjoyed our stay very much, The location is great - convenient for Honfleur. Lovely and peaceful countryside setting - you can walk into the local village in 10 mins for your morning bread etc. The games room was a great benefit and all the rooms spacious. The house was clean on arrival with fresh bedding and towels laid out. I would come back to this house.
Très surprenant de louer une telle maison:
avec des toilettes sales (abattant même pas nettoyé)
salles de bains avec des traces de savon , de calcaire, de doigts sur les vitres
cuisine dans le même état
vitres des fenêtres et portes pas faites depuis.......
et enfin une pelouse de 15 20 cm de haut
From the Owner
“As soon as we visited Honfleur in 2004, we thought it was stunning and bought a holiday cottage in the region within 6 months of our first visit. When we had children, we needed a property that was larger and more child friendly, yet still retained rustic charm and a rural setting. That is why we loved this house. The garden is large, safe and accessible for children to play in. The house layout is also great for when we visit as an extended family.”
Activity and Interests
Honfleur is a charming harbour town, with plenty of restaurants, shops, cafés and art galleries. Honfleur has an interesting Maritime museum and an impressive array of architecture. The public gardens, with outside swimming pool are also very pretty.
Conteville is a lovely little village on the outskirts of Honfleur. It has a small selection of shops, including bakers, butchers, mini-supermarket, hairdresser and post office. There is also a creperie, tabac and a Michelin star restaurant for those evenings when you want to stroll out rather than drive.
Just down the coast from Honfleur is the famous duet of towns Trouville and Deauville with their designer shops, casinos, sandy beach, restaurants, race course and variety of golf courses.
In and around Honfleur you will find many public tennis courts, horse riding stables, sea fishing and water sports. Calvados has beautifully lush green countryside and sandy coastline. The D-Day beaches are also a short drive away from the house.
