We had tried to book this B&B for our entire visit, but it was unavailable. Staying in Bayeux an extra night gave us an opportunity, and we are so glad we did. The entire house is beautifully decorated, and our room, "Violet de Bayeux" and its blue bathroom, was simply gorgeous. Breakfast (additional charge but worth it) was generous, with fresh fruit, cereal and yogurt in addition to the traditional French fare. Served in a sunny room looking out on the lovely garden started our day in the best way, and we also enjoyed sitting in the garden with its resident cat. Even a basket of blankets to ward off the chill. Be sure to peek into the tiny "WC" halfway up the stairs. Philippe and Sophie were welcoming and extremely helpful in making additional arrangements for our trip. We would love the opportunity to stay here longer in the future.
