“Honfleur - an oasis.”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Self-contained little resort town - very walkable; nice restaurants at all price points; lots of shops; picturesque. Interesting for Canadians since Champlain sailed from here to Quebec and New Brunswick in 1600's.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Very nice place to walk around, but very small & touristy. Also not easy to find a reasonable restaurant.

“Beautiful - tourist filled - seaport harbour”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Lots of tourists, lots of people but who can blame Honfleur - on a pretty day, everyone wants to be there, walking around, shopping, eatings mussels and fries. We spent a lovely afternoon wandering around the harbour. It was simply lovely. The shop keepers were very friendly, the scenery is so beautiful and it is was a perfect final stop on our way back to Charles DeGaulle Airport for our journey home.
