The hotel occupies a 16th-century former salt storehouse and five adjacent houses that were added subsequently at the heart of Honfleur.
Regional brand debut
While staying at the newly opened Les Maisons de Léa, a member of Radisson Individuals, guests can discover the history and landscape Honfleur is known for. Honfleur’s old port was used for commercial and leisure purposes for centuries and artists such as Claude Monet featured the location in their artworks.
The new-to-Radisson-Individuals hotel is located just 150m from the old port, facing the historic church of Sainte Catherine, with restaurants, museums and art galleries all within easy reach.
Commenting on the opening, Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President for Radisson Hotel Group in Western & Northern Europe, said: “We are thrilled to open Normandy’s first Radisson Individuals property, a stunning boutique hotel in a beautiful area.”
“We offer four of Radisson Hotel Group’s brands across 18 properties in France, presenting guests with a range of hotel options for every trip and occasion, and we look forward to guests enjoying this beloved hotel.”
Emmanuel Borla, General Manager of Les Maisons de Léa, a member of Radisson Individuals, added: “Joining the Radisson Individuals brand was the perfect match for the hotel. We can now offer our guests the best of Radisson Hotel Group’s systems and their Yes! I Can service-philosophy, while maintaining our unique identity and signature style, which our guests have come to expect.”
“We are delighted to launch this remarkable brand in Normandy and create memorable moments for all our guests.”
Leisure and business amenities
The houses encompassed within this hotel include the 15th-century, three-floor Petite Maison and the 19th- to 20th-century Maison du Jardin, which was once a nursery school and now houses the hotel’s event space.
The hotel houses 43 spacious rooms and suites featuring distinct design details like Moroccan tiles and bronze and brass accents.
Guests can gather in the hotel’s bistro, Tourbillon, for refined dishes using local products like eggs from the Pays de Caux and oysters from Blainville-sur-Mer in a space featuring a fireplace and terrace.
Other guest spaces at the hotel include a hammam, relaxation area and Univers Spa by Thalgo, which also has a herbal tea room. Maison du Jardin is occupied by flexible meeting rooms featuring state-of-the-art technology, along with a hanging garden and terrace.
