La Petite Folie...
Honfleur Bed & Breakfast/Charming Apts located just steps from the old harbor
La Petite Folie consists of three houses on historic rue Haute and provides your choice of bed and breakfast or lovely apartment accomodations.
Ideally situated in the center of historic St. Catherine and just two minutes by foot from the old harbor, the houses are situated between the places of birth/museums of Alphonse Allais and Eric Satie at numbers 42, 44 and 94 rue Haute. The first two side by side and the third, arenovated house which opened in 2011 has new gorgeous apartments (in fact small houses each with private entrance) both overlooking a stunning, classified private garden with access.
The main house at 44 (B&B) dates to 1830 and is Directoire Style offering 5 beautiful bedrooms and one studio all with ensuite bathrooms. The b&b offers you the possibility to mingle with other guests and enjoy breakfast around a wonderful old wooden table. It has a curious kiosk (or Petite Folie) in the garden dating back to 1871. In the spirit of late 19th century Marocaine or oriental style, it was once used as a bathhouse for its prestigious owners. Our ‘petite folie’ has been completely renovated and you are welcome to visit.
For more private stays, 5 lovely apartments to choose from at 42 & 94 rue Haute :
42 - The house was built during the 14th century and is amongst the eldest in town with three exquisite apartments each of which comprise a floor of the house and are self-catering.
