I have just returned from a 2 night stay with some friends at the Moulin St Nicol. First of all, I would like to tell you about the property. As beautiful as it appears in the pictures, they do not do it justice. The buildings, rooms and all the common areas are maintained to such a high standard that you will actually find it hard to believe that this is a 16th century property. It is almost as if it has just been built! The 3 rooms we occupied were all spacious, spotlessly clean and very tastefully appointed, as was the rest of the house.
Parking is safe and secure and your car cannot even be seen from the main road.
The grounds are perfectly manicured and really quite idyllic. A very tranquil and restful place to just relax and chill out.
Now for the best part of the Moulin St Nicol, the hosts. Joelle and Gerard are two of the warmest, kindest, genuine and most helpful people I have ever met. From the initial welcome we received when we first arrived, to the lengths they both went to to ensure that our stay was as pleasant as it could be. When we returned in the evening from our days activities, Gerard was ready and waiting with a bottle of local cider or Calvados to welcome us home. In the mornings, breakfast comprised mainly of Joelle's wonderful homemade conserves, cakes, crème caramel and yoghurts, along with fresh bread and croissant, juice, tea and coffee. When one of our group remarked on how lovely all the plants were, Joelle went out of her way to put together a large selection of cuttings for her to take home! Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and if you do visit Honfleur, please do listen to Gerard's recommendations for dining out. We didn't the first night and had a horrible experience. On the second night however we did, and had the best meal of our entire trip.
To summarise, when I next visit Honfleur or the surrounding area (and I will) this is the only place I will consider for accommodation. A truly wonderful experience.
