We loved it so much we are going back next month. We were fortunate to visit on a Saturday morning when the market was in full swing. I love a French market. The smells, the cheese, the cold meats the pavement cafes all add up to a magical mix. That added to with some wonderful artisan shops and galleries. What a way to spend a Saturday morning.

Steeped in history, galleries and very old buildings. You can eat economically or really spoil yourselves with fine wines and dinners.

I absolutely loved Honfleur. The harbour is stunning. Honfleur is steeped in history and amazing things to do and see. We took a horse and cart trip around and they gave us lots of information and history facts. This was a great way to see the area. There were lots of taverns and cafes to stop for a break and great food. The painters were great.

It was interesting to watch the fishing boats coming in and unloading their catch. Beautiful views od the town.

Ever since I read a book which featured Honfleur (a children's book which title I don't even remember) I've wanted to visit Honfleur, mainly because the name is so pretty. Having time on the way home we decided to have lunch. It is a smallish, quite touristicy town. But in a pleasant way - and having lunch in the the small harbour with loads of restaurant terraces is really pleasant - and dogs are welcome.
