Our ideas for family outings in Deauville and Honfleur

Your free family outing: stroll on the Vieux Bassin

It is the emblematic place to visit that will make your visit a unique moment!
Along your family outing, you will discover the both picturesque and port side that makes all the charm of Honfleur. In general, children find the slate-fronted houses original and the walk around the boats is pleasant to do with the family, regardless of their age. Think about it: from 6 p.m. in winter, with the Christmas lights in the street but also on the boats, it's even more magical!

A carousel ride is a must

With its photogenic look and pink tint, this historic and well-maintained merry-go-round facing the Old Port quickly catches the eye of children. You won't escape a request from them to take a little ride in the carousel! Ticket prices are not excessive and your whole tribe will be warmly welcomed on site in front of the magnificent view of the basin.

It is definitely the unmissable point of interest for children discovering Honfleur. Moreover, this merry-go-round has become a tradition for certain families each time they come to visit the land of the estuary. Maybe because it's the perfect time for the little ones to enjoy it while the grown-ups take a break?

At the heart of an equatorial setting at 28°C, the whole family will be dazzled by colorful and exceptional species! You will make an amazing trip to a covered site with a tropical jungle setting. Your walk will be carried out by following the path specially designed for visits to the greenhouse. It is at this precise moment that your visit and the discovery of different tropical plants begins. But what you will remember most are the brilliantly colored butterflies fluttering a few feet away from you and in every corner of the greenhouse. Not to mention the fish pond located in the middle of the zoological garden.  

Advice from our reception: this family outing is even more enjoyable when it's less crowded, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.!
