A great alternative place to stay in the middle of Bayeux. The sisters are friendly and speak some English. A safe room was provided for our bicycles, which was nice. Breakfast was in a large dining room where you clean up after yourself. Our room had a double bed plus a single, very comfortable. After breakfast we were free to explore the grounds of the nunnery / monastery, all in all a great experience. We did have to wait 20 minutes or so to gain access (the sisters may have been at prayers), so patience is a must - St Benoit's attribute is his ability to listen, so the bell will be heard eventually, as a notice at the entrance explains! The entrance was a little hard to find - go through the ironwork gates labelled 45, on Rue St Loup and walk across the courtyard to a covered gateway to find the bell.
