Auberge de la Source is the perfect romantic getaway. A cozy and charming hotel nestled in the most bucolic garden. Serenity and peacefulness define this place where time stills – probably to make the most of the picturesque surroundings.
This little paradise is located 10 minutes away from Ferme Saint Simeon and a few kilometres from Honfleur, probably the most charming town of Normandy.
From Auberge de la Source, you can explore the green countryside by bike, horse or even carriage. Many little villages nearby are designated as Historic Monuments and are worth a visit.
Behind the fish pond, up the stairs and through huge french windows is our Charme Room. A nice sized bedroom with an open-plan bathroom in a country setting. The colors are warm and welcoming, reflecting the cozy atmosphere of Auberge de la Source.
The bedding is as luxurious as can be, with fluffy pillows and a cloud like down comforter. Many windows and a lovely private terrace confer the room natural light and picturesque sights of the garden.
The Charme Room is unlike any of the hotel rooms we’ve seen so far. There is no minibar or coffee machine: the luxurious comfort is in total harmony with the surrounding wilderness. Ideal for a romantic nature retreat.
A delicious, copious breakfast is served from 8.00 am to 10.30 am. Products are regional, in season and the always smiling personnel will accommodate any of your special needs.
During winter, the lounge and restaurant area are especially inviting, with a fireplace and a bay window overlooking the garden.
Complimentary wifi is easily available, but there is no cellphone service at Auberge de la Source. Perfect excuse to enjoy a digital detox for a flew days.
WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT AUBERGE DE LA SOURCE
- The nature retreat feel : bucolic gardens, green countryside, typical Norman-style architecture…
- The open bathroom and deep tub next to the bed
WHAT COULD BE DIFFERENT
During winter, the build-in heaters could not warm up the room sufficiently. The staff had to provide an additional heater (very efficient but also noisy and inelegant).
