L'Absinthe

1 rue de Ville, Honfleur, Normandy, 14600, France

A 16th-century presbytery with stone walls and beamed ceilings houses a charming little hotel and the acclaimed restaurant of the same name. Guest rooms are comfortable and stylish but small, except for the attic suite, which has a private living room; four rooms and one suite have harbor views—the latter includes a sauna as well. The elegant and cozy reception area is adorned with an imposing stone fireplace. The restaurant is famous for seasonal seafood and game dishes, such as rabbit in a gingerbread sauce with slow-simmered chicory. On sunny days request a table on the terrace.
