Hotel le Dauphin les Loges

Honfleur, France

The family-run Hotel le Dauphin les Loges is spread across three 17th-century houses with half-timbered façades or slate tiles typical of Normandy. Located in the heart of old Honfleur directly across from Saint-Catherine's Church, it's just a short walk from the Vieux Bassin (old port) with its brightly painted fishing boats and busy restaurants and cafes.

Warm and friendly service is a priority at the Hotel le Dauphin les Loges and as your suitcases are whisked up the very narrow staircases to your room, you can sit and relax in the breakfast room which transforms into a tea salon in the afternoon. The rustic yet modern rooms are small but full of character. 

Number of nights: 2

Hotel Villa Lara

Bayeux, France

This family-run hotel, in the heart of historic Bayeux, is located on a quiet, tree-lined square by the Aure River. Inside the small, marble entrance, there's an intimate bar, a library, and a fireplace, giving the Hotel Villa Lara a chic and relaxed atmosphere which is complemented by exceptional service.

Opened in 2012, this purpose-built hotel was thoughtfully designed with spacious rooms and all modern conveniences. It offers a contemporary take on classical elegance with replica furniture, plush fabrics and subtle lighting in both guest rooms and public spaces.

Opposite the hotel, a small bridge leads into town where you'll find the 11th-century Bayeux Cathedral, the renowned Bayeux Tapestry, and original medieval half-timbered homes.

Number of nights: 1

La Maison des Armateurs

Saint Malo, France

Located in the heart of St Malo, La Maison des Armateurs is the only 4-star hotel in St Malo Intra Muros. Choose a Sailor’s Cabin, Major’s or Lieutenant ‘s Room, Captain’s or Admiral’s Suite. Centrally located, all of Saint Malo is within a 5-minute walk; the Saint-Malo ramparts, the Beaches, the Casino, Restaurants, and shops.

Number of nights: 2

Le Clos d'Amboise

Ambiose, France

Once a 17th-century family home, Le Clos d’Amboise expertly retains the same elegance and tradition it enjoyed during its heyday. Quiet reading rooms, warm fireplaces, and creaking floorboards give the impression of visiting the home of a family friend. Rich tapestries line the corridors, chandeliers dangle from the beamed ceilings and there is the occasional touch of the exotic in the Egyptian art on the walls.

Rooms are just as welcoming with subtle shades of red, yellow or blue in the fabrics and hints of gold in the antique lamps and mirrors. There is also space to relax with a drink in the intimate library or the quiet courtyard. Alternatively, the heart of medieval Amboise is just a ten-minute walk away. 

Number of nights: 3
