Book with our partner Hotels.com
Overlooking the Seine estuary in Honfleur, La Ferme Saint-Siméon dates back to the 17th century. Its heyday came in the 19th century when it was known as Auberge de la Mère Toutain, an inn for painters (the Impressionists) who flocked to Honfleur in search of inspiration for their paintings. The painters’ meetings here would go on to create the School of Impressionism of Honfleur, also known as the Impressionist School of Saint-Siméon. Today it is a five-star property that aims to capture the spirit of the Impressionists through its decor, service, and activities, such as painting lessons in the hotel gardens.

The Hôtel de Bourgtheroulde dates back to the 15th century and sits in the heart of the city, blending into the Gothic buildings of Rouen and looking as though it was a royal palace rather than a full-service hotel. Formerly the mansion of the Le Roux family between 1499 and 1532, its regal atmosphere is derived from a blend of both traditional (exposed beam ceilings and Louis XVII-style armchairs) and contemporary (a sleek bar, pool, and spa) elements. The most alluring feature is its courtyard terrace with the hotel’s striking architecture seen looming in the background.
