How to Find the Best Le Havre Hotels with Venere

Le Havre is a large port city in the Normandy region of northern France, second only to Marseille in scale, yet is best known as a modern metropolitan destination that will appeal to culture and art enthusiasts. Much of the central part and suburbs were destroyed by bombing raids in the latter half of the Second World War, but would go on to be rebuilt by Belgian architect Auguste Perret who had a bright, spacious, and modernist approach to design. The city has plenty of offer everyone, as there is a balance between both the old and new, with both historic and cultural landmarks as well as more metropolitan attractions. Finding that special hotel in a foreign place can be a daunting prospect, however with Venere you can feel rest assured that you are making the right choice thanks to thousands of user reviews, photo galleries of every hotel, and a location from Google maps.
