Honfleur is a commune in the Calvados department in northwestern France. It is located on the southern bank of the estuary of the Seine across from le Havre and very close to the exit of the Pont de Normandie.
It is especially known for its old, beautiful picturesque port, characterized by its houses with slate-covered frontages, painted many times by artists, including in particular Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin, Claude Monet and Johan Jongkind, forming the école de Honfleur (Honfleur school) which contributed to the appearance of the Impressionist movement.

    Gosh Thea we know this well I love the Calvados area and the drink even more, Sally & me will be in Colmar and Anncey very soon, as we’ve covered a lot of france in the past but this year we’d thought we’d try a new area for a change a great shot young Lady.

  • Young lady….. ? I like you, Malcolm – LOL.. Yes, Normandy is a great area, we visited the landing beaches and other places from World War II. I’ve never been in Colmar but it must be very nice…
