La Ferme Saint-Siméon is a luxurious five-star hotel and spa located at the French Côte Fleurie in Calvados, overlooking the picturesque city of Honfleur. For a sophisticated refurbishment of the hotel, the Boelen family, that owns and operates the hotel, consulted with Flamant Projects to provide furniture and accessories for every room. Classic wooden furniture pieces and seating upholstered in tonal shades were carefully selected from the Flamant collection, to emphasize the timeless charm of the spaces and to complement the historic wood paneling in the hotel.
The hotel has a rich past, strongly embedded in the history of French painting. Between 1825 and 1865, the Louis XVII style estate was home to “l’auberge de la Mère Toulain” that became the preferred hotel of the French painters of the Honfleur school, such as Monet, Courbet, Bazille, Daubigny, Diaz, Tryon, Cals, Dubourg, Jongkind, Boudin and Sisley. The beauty of the light, of the estuary and the endless skies mesmerized the painters. The group would eventually contribute to the establishment and recognition of the Impressionist movement. Unsurprisingly Honfleur’s famous sights, as its picturesque harbor, are the subject of many early Impressionist tableaus. Up until today the views from the hotel over the estuary of the river Seine can only leave one in awe.
