La petite Folie is faultless in providing an outstanding service and a perfect romantic getaway. Our rooms over many visits have ranged from modern to Louis XV with sumptuous fabrics and decor. The atmosphere at breakfast combined with the quality of the hostess's conversation and help and local knowledge are unforgettable and we look forward to our next visits!!

We booked a weekend at La Petite Folie based on the fantastic reviews on trip advisor and it exceeded expectations. We stayed in the Priscilla apartment which was in fact more of a small townhouse with access to an exquisite garden. The facilities were fantastic, everything very well maintained, spotlessly clean and really well decorated and furnished. It was so lovely experiencing life in the old town and despite Honfleur being incredibly touristy, Priscilla is very quiet and peaceful. We had such a perfect weekend that we will definitely be returning to La Petite Folie.

My wife and I and our son had the most special weekend in Honfleur at the end of April staying at the elegant and stylish La Petite Folie. This is such an unforgettable place to stay. As Penny and Thierry were away, we were superbly looked after by the wonderful Catherine and Aline. We stayed in the Jasmine apartment which was quite simply FANTASTIC and beautifully done up. Delicious breakfast with fresh croissants was bought to us each morning and we were very sorry to leave. Penny's recommendations re where to eat were also spot on. We shall definitely return. Can't recommend this place enough!

A small hotel is defined by it's owner and staff. Penny (the owner) and her crew deliver on all levels ...warm hospitality, prompt service, cleanliness and beautiful accommodations. Penny is a bright engaging personality. Our room was thoughtfully decorated, with a modern, squeaky clean bathroom. We were able to spend a few afternoons in her sun drenched living room reading artfully chosen books and enjoying wonderfully brewed coffee and tea. How do you describe a wonderful place with wonderful people? HOME

Room Tip: Enjoy the wonderful living room area

We recently spent three nights at La Petite Folie in Honfleur with three other couples. We all loved staying at La Petite Folie. The staff was so nice and made us all feel welcome and treated us like friends instead of guests that they had never met. The rooms were beautiful and decorated with creativity and personal style. The living room and dining room were decorated nicely, full of antiques and collectibles. We felt like we were staying in the owner's (Penny) home. We definitely recommend La Petite Folie to anyone going to the Normandy area. The location was perfect and close to quaint shops and great restaurants. We loved getting to know Penny and hope to return to stay at her B&B in the future. Thanks for the great time Penny and Catherine. Jane and Bill

My boyfriend and I had spend 2 memorable nights at the beautiful, cosy, 18th century house, La Petite Follie. We stayed in the very romantic, soft, and so tastefully decorated, "La Suite Bleue". Penny, the owner of the house, and the whole stuff were extremely hospitable and friendly, they made every effort to make us feel at home and comfortable. I was particularly impressed by the very beautiful and warm decoration of the whole house which was obviously done with love and an astonishing attention to detail. Everything was so personalized and well thought of, the choice of antiques, fabrics, colors, lighting, books, and art work, all matched well with the style and the purpose of the house. Not to mention the cleanliness of the rooms, and the great delicious home made breakfast that we enjoyed around a family style oval shaped table, where we got a chance to meet and talk with other guests. Thank you, Penny, for a wonderful experience, we are so coming back very soon!!

We had the great pleasure of staying for a few days with Penny and the team at La Petite Folie during Summer

Fantastic location, great guest rooms each with a personal touch and wonderful hospitality. We were immediately made to feel very welcome and at home by Penny and her team.

The breakfast is to die for and the chef will gladly prepare your requests to perfection. Afternoon drinks in the garden, a perfect way to finish off a day of exploring Honfleur.

Penny's restaurant and shopping tips were spot on and she also helped us with our onward travel plans

Penny, Thank You
