Map & Directions

The hotel is a 10-minute drive from the airport at Deauville, where taxis are readily available at arrivals. It’s a 40-minute drive from the port at Le Havre (or there’s a bus to Honfleur, which takes around 30 minutes). Trains run from Paris to LeHavre -- the trip takes about 2 hours 15 minutes -- from where you can get a taxi or bus. There is free parking on site for those arriving by car.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Set at the edge of a forest in a village, just two miles from the picturesque fishing port of Honfleur, the 4-star Auberge de la Source is a rural retreat in the Normandy countryside. A member of the Châteaux & Hôtels Collection, this 18th-century restored farmhouse sits in a verdant valley, and walks in the local woods of Bois du Breuil or the paths that follow the estuary of the Seine River are right on your doorstep.

Honfleur, with its museums, gardens and pretty harbour is less than a 10-minute drive away. The hotel is also a great base for visiting the area’s attractions, many of which are only an hour or so away: Rouen and its cathedral, the white chalk cliffs of Etretat, and Mont Saint-Michel are just a few. Other options are immersing yourself in First World War history at the Normandy Landing beaches or taking a trip along Normandy’s cider route.

The hotel’s restaurant is run by a Michelin-star restaurant trained chef, who uses fresh local produce to produce a daily-changing fine-dining set menu. And, if your French is up to it, there are also weekly cooking classes for 85€ per person.

The 15 country-chic rooms come with exposed wooden beams, wicker chairs and gingham furnishings, and overlook the ponds or gardens. The Hotel Guru praises the “rustic chic interiors with high wooden-beamed ceilings and lots of light”. All come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, and larger Family Rooms are available for those travelling with children.
