An apartment life in Honfleur!

Hi y’all, here I am again to tell you more of wonderful Honfleur, salut ! la vie est belle chez ma belle France! A bit of a story telling and travel tip and anecdote as well for you. Of course, this is in Honfleur, Dept 14 Calvados of the region of Normandy in the country of France! Sort like the city X, county Y, state Z and country U,if you know what I mean!

I am sure as most of us, when first started traveling I chose hotels, very inexpensive ones hehehe! then as time went on and jobs became better I move up to nice luxury hotels and not so luxury ones. Lately, the last 15 years or so, and the family growing we came to taste apartments, gîtes, houses, apart-hotels mostly in France, Spain, Germany, and Italy.

Lately , we have stayed in apartments as was the case on our last trip to Honfleur early May’19. We search the usual popular online places and finally settle on the Le Loft at Honfleur rue des Prés off Rue de la République, walking distances to all in the city.

Their online site I found it is here: Info on the Le Loft at Booking

A bit of a real description as shown in public mediums is this: Le Loft offers pet-friendly accommodation. The accommodation includes a seating area with a flat-screen TV and a DVD player. Also have a dining area and terrace. The kitchen includes an oven, a microwave, a toaster, a kettle and a coffee machine. The private bathroom comes with a shower. The old port of Honfleur is 200 meters from Le Loft.

The booking was done by first email with a 30% deposit up front which is discounted from the total, checks in euros or cash are only accepted. Pets are allowed and we enjoy bringing our 17 mos Rex with us and he love it, well behave and we all had a great time walking around in the city. Final details were handle by telephone text messages. The welcome was puntual by the mother of the owner, and she took us thru the rundown of the property and some suggestions on where to eat and buy groceries always welcome. The apartment has a lockbox key so no need to carry the key around just remember the digicode! Oh check in was 15h or 3pm and check out 11h or 11am , the key then is left at the door to let know the maid time to clean the apartment. All flawless and we sure would rent again from these folks.

See our previous posts on eating and shopping in Honfleur for the places we use this time and even in previous visits. At the end it was another memorable visit to our beloved dear Honfleur and I felt a single post on the accommodation was merité even if seldom do this myself….Oh the owners also handle about 11 properties for rentals in the city so there are other choices all around the same area as Le Loft.

So there you have another possibility when visiting Honfleur is to rent an apartment, good deal from the Le Loft. And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
