On the painter's road, lazing about in the sandstone of the wind, from strolls to enchantments, operates the charm of a seasonal stopover...
A restaurant, a place to live and make friends where, when summer comes, a glass of rosé in one hand, a ball of pétanque in the other, the beautiful days are slowly savoured.

On the painter's road, lazing about in the sandstone of the wind, from strolls to enchantments, operates the charm of a seasonal stopover...
A restaurant, a place to live and make friends where, when summer comes, a glass of rosé in one hand, a ball of pétanque in the other, the beautiful days are slowly savoured. And when the cold is biting us on the tip of our nose, sitting at the corner of a warm decor or on a bright veranda, it's time for the refined dishes concocted by Chef Jimmy.
Waiting for the first rays of spring to rediscover the pleasures of a shady terrace at any time of the day.

In the heart of the historic city, the cathedral sums up the evolution of Gothic art, from the beginning of its construction in the 12th century on the foundations of a 4th century basilica and an 11th century Romanesque complex. Destroyed during the Viking invasions in 841, then partially destroyed in 1944 by allied bombing, the cathedral is a living building, in perpetual evolution. Its cast iron spire has been 151 metres high (the highest in France) since the 19th century. The cathedral is also the only one in France to have an adjoining archbishop's palace still occupied by an archbishop. The choir of the cathedral houses the tombs of the Dukes of Normandy, including Rollon, founder of the duchy in 911, as well as the heart of Richard the Lionheart, King of England and Duke of Normandy.

This new facility, an attractive and visible urban marker, installed in an emblematic building, makes it possible to develop the offer of books, press, DVDs, CDs and other documents and to offer services that could not find a place in the Armand Salacrou library. The new library works in tandem with the Armand Salacrou library, which becomes a space dedicated to the local collection and the promotion of heritage documents (on-site consultation and exhibition).

 

In a 5000m² space, it allows exchange and conviviality, a comfortable stay, a break during the day, quiet work, reading but also debates, group discussions, cultural activities and training. A wide variety of spaces, lights and furniture, from the work table to the pebble to lie down, are offered.

Not to be missed in Honfleur, the church of Sainte Catherine is the largest church in France built in wood with a separate bell tower.

 

The church of Sainte Catherine was built in the district of the same name during the second half of the 15th century. It replaced an old stone church destroyed during the Hundred Years War.

 

With the limited means of the time, the inhabitants used wood from the nearby forest of Touques as raw material and put their knowledge of shipbuilding into practice. Hence this remarkable all-wooden architecture in the shape of an upside-down double boat hull.

 

Opposite the church, the separate bell tower is a sturdy oak construction built over the bellringer's house. Annex of the Eugène Boudin Museum, it can be visited and presents religious works (sculptures, souvenirs of the Charities and the Notre-Dame de Grâce chapel).

When he was over 50 years old, Cezanne sought the peace of these abandoned quarries whose ochre rocks set off the deep green pine trees and blue Provençal sky.
The artist used this stunning scenery to produce world-renowned pieces between 1895 and 1904 that set Cubism on course such as The Red Rock.
The tour is an hour-long walk among the Mediterranean woods deep in the Grand Site Sainte-Victoire. The guide will take you by huge blocks before stopping in front of a lovely hut where the painter stored his equipment before ending on the belvedere with views of Sainte-Victoire Mountain.
