Another side of Honfleur
The cradle of Impressionism
Looking for light and beauty?
As a subtle continuation of the experience you will enjoy in the home of the painter Saint-Delis, you mustn’t forget that you are in a unique town, a true French heritage gem!
Since the beginning of the 19th century, the history of art has left an indelible mark on this location. Stroll down the alleys and quays of the Vieux Bassin, and meander along the beach, on the trail of the painters who immersed themselves in the jewel colours of the estuary. You are now following in the footsteps of the Impressionists yourself...
There is plenty to see, from the Ferme Saint Siméon, selected by artists for the quality of its cuisine and the beauty of its panoramas, to the Eugène Boudin museum where you can admire some incredible impressionist works... Real enthusiasts can head on to the city of Rouen, where the spirit of Claude Monet still inhabits the cathedral and the pretty alleyways.
All of them are places where you can wander at leisure and where the mood takes you.
