Stay at Ferme Saint Siméon
An expansive lawn sprawls down from the quaintquant La Ferme Saint Simeone Hotel. Dotted with leafy apple trees, from a birds-eye view, it resembles an impressionist style painting from a birds-eye view,. The hotel is deeply embedded with a rich artistic history, in fact, room 22 was once lived in by the infamous painter Claude Monet. Walk-in Monet's shoes and sit by his old fireplace and see what inspired his work.What started as an apple farm and inn in the 17th century, became home to aspiring French artists, and is now an authentic luxury hotel. Feel the change of the centuries in the hallways and observe the seasons from your window.
Dotted on the Southern embankment of the Seine Estuary, the hotel rests at the top of Honfleur. A road runs from the hotel to the center of town, making a neat balance of town and country living.
Rooms are split into two buildings. Feel part of the furniture in the 17th century timbered pavilion with ornate wooden panels, soft lighting, and a cozy charming interior. It’s, fit- for- farm-style luxury. Allow the breeze in with the more spacious 20th-century Pressoir, with grand balconies and beautiful oak panels.
