The ancient port town of Honfleur houses some of the finest galleries, antique shops and restaurants supported by people who are friendly and welcoming. It is the most outstanding preserved port in the area. The vieux basin in the centre of town is still a haven for yachtsmen, ocean going and river cruising alike. Its sea bound entrance is through the swing bridge governed by the Lieutenance, the home of the Kings Lieutenant dating from 1606.
Local towns of Pont Audemer and Beuzeville provide the opportunity to visit typically French markets with their fine section of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, bread and wines as well as the sites and sounds of market day. You are never far away from good food in France and there is a Michelin Star restaurant in the village of Conteville, which is less than ten minutes away and in the town of Beuzeville which is less than twenty minutes. You can visit the Park naturel regional de Brotonne, half an hour away, or take the winding riverside road to the Abbeys at St Wandrill and Jumieges. The village of Saumone du Roc and its impressive views of the Seine in both directions is a short drive away. The beautiful towns of Deauville and Trouville with their spotlessly clean sandy beaches are only short drive away through unspoilt countryside. Golfers will be pleased to note that there are five golf courses nearby with St Gatien being only half an hour away, and for the cheese lovers you can always treat yourself to some Pont Leveque from a local shop, or from the town itself which is nearby. Paris, Rouen, Bayeaux, Giverny with Monet’s gardens and the Beaches of Normandy with the imposing American WWII cemeteries are all accessible from Berville, with Paris being the furthest away at approx 2 1/5 hours.
