What a fantastic place! We have just left and wanted to post a review to spread the word about how much of a fantastic place this is! Penny and Thierry could not have made us feel more welcome and went out of their way to make our stay a great one. Thierry met us (even though it was very late)... More

At the last minute we extended our single night booking with hostess-extraordinaire Penny to two nights after a hotel in Rouen let us down - and were so glad it worked out this way! La Petite Folie is absolutely charming - a beautiful building, gorgeously renovated by the current owner with love, attention, and a tasteful/artful eye. We stayed in... More

You cannot visit a charming town like Honfleur and stay in a Mercure or Hilton. Well, you probably can, but you won't get the flavor of the place. La Petite Folie oozes charm, with carefully chosen antiques, gorgeous flowers and a warm, cozy feel. The location couldn't be better. Breakfast was what we wanted when we wanted it. Thierry and...

we travelled early in the season & because of family illness had to change our plans - the owners adapted to our requirements very kindly & helpfully. The rooms are very pleasantly decorated & well equipt - we preferred an espresso coffee maker & the proprietor went to the trouble of moving on into the room for us

I'm a big believer in Karma…so when my husband booked a guys ski trip over Valentine's (granted..he knows I've never really cared about the holiday) I decided to add a few days to a business trip and head to France. I found La Petite Folie online and decided to re-visit a city I hadn't been to in years and head... More

I go to Honfleur every November for a birthday sojourn. It's such a lovely town with a quality of light that inspired (and continues to inspire) so many artists. Boudin clouds floating in the sky by day and a twinkling harbor by night. And so many great restaurants (especially Sa Qua Na). Although I am subtle about mentioning my birthday,... More

We spend two nights at La Petite Folie in early October and it was by far the highlight of our two week trip in France and only wish we could have spend more time there! Honfleur is a wonderful, quaint, little town on the harbor with cobblestoned streets and wonderful restaurants, shops, and scenery. But the best part was staying... More

Lovely stay at this centrally located B & B. Penny was very helpful about restaurants and sites in our correspondence prior to our arrival. Although Penny was out of town during our visit, her assistant, Catherine, took excellent care of us. The room was lovely, the location ideal, and breakfast delightful with an opportunity to meet other guests from Australia... More

Stayed at La Petite Folie after undertaking research online and had high hopes, returning to Honfleur after an absence of more than 10 years - was most definitely not disappointed. Despite being right in the centre of the town and on an unseasonably warm and sunny weekend which brought out the crowds, the beautifully restored building was an oasis of... More

I stayed four nights at LaPetite Folie and loved every minute! The breakfasts were delicious! Croissants and jellies/jams were staples on the breakfast table! The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Such a lovely place to return to after a day full of sightseeing.
