La Tour Louise
Ranked #2 of 32 Bayeux B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2014

For over 8 months we looked forward to kicking off our first trip to Europe with a two night and three day stop in the Normandy Area. La Tour Louise had great reviews on Trip Advisor and the location was perfect so we booked with Will and began the wait!

The reviews were spot on and a great time was had by the four of us traveling together. My wife and I booked the room with a view of the Notre Dame Cathedral from the bathroom. The bedroom was well equipped and a side room allowed us a great place to set our suitcases on the bed and out from under foot. The refridgerator was stocked with a few waters and coke's for us.

Will was very flexible on what time we wanted to have breakfast. It was a small additional charge for breakfast but well worth it to learn more about the area and to be able to sit out and look out on the garden.

Wireless internet was flawless, and Will's recommendations for local dinner locations were spot on.

Within walking distance were many shops and places to eat, along with the Bayeux Tapestry Musueum, which we highly recommend. We were short drives away from the local WW2 sites including the Amercian Cemetary.

We enjoyed our trek a bit farther to Mount St. Michael, the towns we passed through were incredible and everyone we ran into in the Normandy area were simply great to us.

We were able to park on the street in front of the bed and breakfast, but if by chance that is not possible there are some nearby lots.

The Notre Dame Cathedral is a three minute walk away and well worth the time to spend there.

Even after checkout, Will was kind enough to allow us to store our food and beverages in his refrigerator until after our tour at the Tapestry musuem.

I can't think of one thing that we did not enjoy about our stay there, and I can say with confidence you will not go wrong either.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the top floor room with a view of the Cathedral from the large bathroom.

Outstanding location, excellent host, complete breakfast, lovely views of the cathedral, day and night. Parking available nearby at no cost. A wonderful town to make as your base for visiting Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery and Point d'Hoc

Room Tip: I think they are all good. No elevator.

The host at this delightful guesthouse goes out of his way to provide a warm and welcoming environment. It is almost like staying with an old friend. Louise is just a short walk from all the restaurants and attractions of Bayeux and there were splendid views of the Cathedral from our bathroom window.

We spent a wonderful 4 days with Will at his lovely guesthouse. The location is just perfect! Will is a great host, friendly and very helpful and accommodating. House is old, very charming and very clean. We, ( 2 couples) found ourselves referring to it as "home" while we were out and about. His recommendations for dinner were excellent and just happened to coincide exactly with the ones from a tour guide. We chose this guesthouse based on reviews here in Trip Advisor and I am so glad we did! You cannot go wrong here. Thank you to Will for a great time.

A comfortable and well-equipped B&B very close to the heart of Bayeux. Wil made us very welcome, and served an excellent breakfast next day. Perfect for our one day visit to the Tapestry and to the D-Day exhibitions. Parking can be on the street, or in the adjacent municipal car park - borrowing a display card from Wil.

My husband and I recently had the great pleasure of staying at La Tour Louise. We were welcomed by Wil who spent time getting to know us. He speaks English fluently and was helpful even before we arrived, recommending Overlord Day Tours for a tour of D-Day beaches. He has transformed his family home into a lovely chamber d'hotes. The rooms are bright and airy and spotlessly clean. There is no air conditioning, but it isn't necessary because of the big windows that provide good cross-ventilation. Our bathroom was huge, and there you have a lovely view of the cathedral. There's a charming courtyard to enjoy. For breakfast, Wil offered fruit, yogurt, croissants, eggs, bacon, juice, and coffee served at a time convenient for us. La Tour Louise is conveniently located near the center of town. Wil recommended a handful of restaurants based on what we wanted to eat. Book your stay now; you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed nice, but there is no lift.

My wife son and I had an excellent experience at this B&B. The rooms were pristine and clean. The breakfasts were delicious. the owner was most helpful in pointing out good places to eat in town and in telling us about the tapestry museum and Normandy battlefield museums. We would definitely come back again.
