La Petite Folie Review

Charming simply doesn't suffice to describe this beautifully renovated 1830s town house a stone's throw from Honfleur's old port—lavished with antiques, no luxury has been spared in appointing the main house's main rooms. Design credits here read like an A-list of Paris notables, including fabrics by Pierre Frey and Porthault linens. Although accented with antiques, the rooms feel perfectly à la mode (flat-screen TVs), and the sleek, modern bathrooms are equipped with glassed-in showers, except for the roomy La Directoire, which sports a capacious claw-foot tub. For those seeking a bit more space or privacy, the half-timber 14th-century sea captain's house next door offers three apartments, each more lovely than the next; the giant windows in the all-white top-floor suite affords a view to the water and gives the feel of an artist's loft. Add to all this a delightful garden and "folie" terrace out back, and the magic's complete.
