Visit the Campanile hotel in Honfleur to find out what inspired artists like Claude Monet to paint this picturesque town.

Honfleur is a small harbour town on the north coast of France, located just over the Seine estuary from Le Havre. It has a population of just over 8,000 and is a tourist hot-spot in the popular region of Normandy. Used as a port for much of its history, the picturesque town is believed to have been founded in the 11th century and to this day has retained much of its artistic beauty and historic heritage.

The town is most famous for its old port, Le Vieux Bassin, which is surrounded by distinctive slate-covered houses. The port has inspired artistic work by a number of painters, including Claude Monet and Gustave Courbet. It is also home to a number of much-admired churches, a scenic bell-tower and a collection of fascinating museums. Honfleur is located in the middle of the historical region of Normandy and offers plenty to do outside of the town itself.
