"To relive the history of Ferme Saint Siméon formerly the Auberge de la Mère Toutain and the birthplace of Impressionism, we offer our guests the possibility of becoming a painter during their stay here.
Sit in the gardens overlooking the river Seine for a 2-hour painting class, and sleep in the former studio of Corot and or Monet's room.
An ideal holiday location for connoisseurs in search of culture and history."
Horse-drawn carriage ride
To take full advantage of the property's idyllic environment and the rich heritage of the region, there is nothing more magical than a horse-drawn carriage ride. It's an opportunity to reconnect with nature while being enchanted by the relaxing pace of the horses and the soothing sound of their hooves on the cobblestones. You will thus get to know the two magnificent Percheron draft horses led by master horseman Benoît Farain — French carriage driving champion in 2019 — as you set off on a ride to Honfleur, a few hours’ jaunt to discover the region's most beautiful landscapes, or even during an entire day within the Pays d'Auge. Unforgettable experiences beyond any doubt.
"With Arnaud Guérin, a guide and photographer from Normandy, we have created a book of excursions specially for our customers. Secret trails, off the beaten track
Starting from the hotel, we invite you to discover Honfleur, by foot, in the footsteps of its artists and sailors. By car, we recommend a day's outing to visit Etretat in the footsteps of the Impressionists. A secret trip into the Pays Auge or an encounter with history on the landing beaches... "
Organic apple treatment
"We offer a range of unique treatments specially created for the Wellness Farm. The preparations are made on site, before you, with organically farmed products, a real nod to Normandy. How about a treatment with milk or apples?"
