Oh my where do I start.We spent a month this past October and early November traveling through Normandy and two weeks in Paris. We rented country homes,Paris apartments and stayed several nights in a luxury Paris hotel.None came close to our two night fantastic stay at the Villa Laura. Bed was divine. View simply spectacular. Service and staff just outstanding. We ordered from room service both nights for dinner and coffee in the morning before we headed out for the day. We decided that the view from our window and ordering room service after an exhausting day(s) of exploring the DD beaches and all Bayeux has to offer was just the best decision ever. My soak in the tub was sublime.Amazing complimentary beverages in the mini bar was just the best ever! Bathe robes,slippers,fantastic toiletries and towels,just first class. Down to the amazing alpaca blanket on our divine king size bed with the best pillows I have ever slept on. Do yourself a favor and book early to ensure yourself a room in this amazing hotel. The staff is so very kind and simply lovely. I will definitely return to charming Bayeux and always stay in the Villa Laura. It is a sublime experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Lara is a small privately owned luxury boutique hotel with a chic but casual atmosphere in the historic center of Bayeux, along the Aure River in a very quiet square facing the 11th century majestic cathedral and just next door to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Our 28 rooms are appointed in an elegant French style with 8 different color schemes. All the furniture is made by Moissonnier, a well-known French company founded in 1885. Its cabinetmaking skills have been passed down generations, bringing the past to life with light touches, suggesting without imposing, breathing new life into traditions to make the present feel magical again, and creating jewelry for the hotel while cultivating an offbeat style-such is the spirit of Moissonnier today. All the rooms are accessible by lift and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, large flat-screen TV and safe. The marbled bathrooms have a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in most of the rooms. The rooms range from 30 to 50 square meters with a view on the Bayeux Cathedral. Beds are minimum 1.80 x 2 meters and in most of the rooms can be up to 2 x 2 meters. Wireless high speed internet access is free throughout the hotel, which features a cozy bar/lounge area with a fireplace and a library, a marbled lobby, and a breakfast room set in a traditional French style where the breakfast is prepared and served in front of the guest. Our complimentary fitness center is available 24/7 and equipment includes a treadmill, bicycle, and strength training machines. A private carpark is available with 15 spots and a drop-off space for buses. Although we meet the official government criteria of a 5-star property, we do not have a restaurant, a spa, and a formal bellman at the front door. We do not want to mislead our future guests who attribute these specific amenities to their image of a 5-star property, although we do of course provide porterage and turn down. And, as always, our commitment to 5-star service is at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. ... more less
