What's Honfleur Like?
The port and harbor have always been at the heart of Honfleur, from its days as a busy fishing port to its current status as a haven for the yachting crowd. The Vieux Bassin waterfront area features charmingly haphazard slate-fronted houses and a striking gatehouse. There is a maritime museum housed in the old church of St. Etienne and the chapel of Notre Dame de Grace features relics related to the colonization of Canada. The 15th century church of Ste. Catherine is unusual in that it is made almost entirely of wood. Honfleur enjoyed its fashionable heyday in the 19th century when the vistas inspired Monet and his contemporary impressionists. There is a substantial collection of 19th century painting in the Eugene Boudin museum named after the local painter who trained Monet. There is still an active art scene in Honfleur, with numerous small galleries showcasing new works. Honfleur hotels offer a relaxed stay in this small resort town.

Speaking a little French will make an impression in a town that is unused to mass tourism. Honfleur's popularity with the yachting crowd means you will fit in more comfortably if you dress nicely for dining out. Some of Honfleur's restaurants are very chic and local seafood is a specialty. For a less expensive option, follow the example of the locals and try a traditional Norman cidrerie, serving local cider and delicious crepes at long wooden tables.
