Located in the heart of the main square of Honfleur, Les Maisons de Léa, a member of Radisson Individuals is a boutique hotel composed of a main building that dates back to the 16th century as a former salt storehouse, and five adjacent houses that were added subsequently, resulting in the property's name.
Honfleur has a rich history and picturesque views, making it one of the most popular destinations to visit in France. The beauty of the town has captured the attention of impressionist artists and is featured in works of art by Claude Monet and his mentor Eugéne Boudin.
Honfleur's old port was used for commercial and leisure purposes for centuries.
The historic waterfront is lined with colorful café terraces where visitors can wander the cobbled streets and admire the beautiful combination of stone and wooden buildings, visit the unique Jardin des Personnalités, or explore the nearby Plage du Butin to admire the view of the coast and the Pont de Normandie.
The hotel is only 150m from the old port and facing the historic church of Sainte Catherine. Restaurants, museums, and art galleries surround the city squares, giving visitors plenty to explore.
The hotel offers 43 spacious rooms and suites, all in soft and serene design with features including Moroccan cement tiles as well as bronze and brass accents to create a chic and sophisticated feel.
The houses include the "Petite Maison", a 15th century house with three floors, and the "Maison du Jardin", which is a former nursery school from the 19th and 20th centuries, now home to the property's meeting and events space. ■
