In love with Honfleur...a few photos!


Bonjour from a foggy Eymet,

Finally here are some photos from our recent trip to Normandy. It is a 7 1/2 hour trip from where we live as opposed to only a couple of hours if you live in Paris.

It was the first time that I had visited Honfleur and I loved every minute that we were there and fortunately for us, the gite that we rented was only a 10 minute drive from Honfleur so we were able to visit on a regular basis.



We purchased lots of seafood from the local poissonnerie...


Ate a few gateaux....
Drunk and cooked with quite a lot of calvados, it seemed rude not to....


Became addicted to this local delicacies, very yummy when heated for a few minutes in the oven! 


Loved the variety of shops and galleries on offer and just the ambiance in general...
Cidre was everywhere we looked and now wish that I had bought a couple of cases but there is always next time, this gives us an excuse to return.  

We also ate a lot of cheese and I have never seen so much cheese in my life, unfortunately I forgot to photograph the cheese....

A great place to visit and a must for any of you planning a trip to France.

à demain, Leeann x

  2. Your photographs have reminded me how much I love Honfleur and that it has ben too long since we were there. Next time you visit Normandy you must come and see us, we have a local source for the very best homemade Calvados that you can try!
