Most recent review:

What I liked:

Wonderful atmosphere, pool, gardens, and location.

What the hotel could do better:

The service ranged from wonderful to neglectful. I would expect overall consistency and attention to detail and would ask that it is the job of staff to see to the needs of guests and not for guest to have to ask repeatedly for the obvious e.g. Service, towels, ash trays, etc

104 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

The ancient port of Honfleur, on the banks of the Seine estuary, has long been a magnet for artists, drawn to the spectacular waters and skies of the English Channel. The Ferme Saint Siméon itself was a gathering place for artists like Monet, Courbet, and Honfleur native Eugene Boudin.

Today the hotel is something of a throwback to those days around the birth of Impressionism, an elegant farmhouse with half-timbered ceilings and slate roofs, decorated in chintz and antiques recalling the Ferme’s nineteenth-century heyday. Rooms are spacious and charming, thick with history, and even the bathrooms have been meticulously maintained; they’re functional yet still authentic, a welcome break from the modern marble standard.

Perhaps most surprising is the Ferme’s spa, with its tiled indoor pool, surrounded by murals and bathed in that legendary Channel light. Any number of health and beauty treatments are available, as well as a sauna, steam bath, whirlpool and fitness center.

The cuisine is, as one expects, one of the main attractions, heavy on Channel seafood and local produce—though you really can’t go wrong with any of Honfleur’s other restaurants. Sightseeing opportunities abound as well; you can squint at the hotel’s famous gardens and try to relive your favorite Impressionist masterpiece, or venture farther afield, from the museums and war memorials of Bayeux and Caen to the landing beaches of D-Day and even William the Conqueror’s castle.

How to get there:

La Ferme Saint Simeon is approximately a 2 hour 10 minute drive from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport or 2 hours from Paris-Orly Airport.
