“What a great find, perfect centre to explore the beaches”

person found this review helpful

Most of the review here are from families and I can see why they would be impressed by this lovely spacious, full equipped house in a very quiet area but I want to write my review from the point of view of myself and my friends who wished to tour the D Day beaches. Firstly the house is no more than 35 minutes on major routes from any of the historic areas from St. Mere Eglise in the west to Merville Battery in the East and only 10 minutes from Arromanche. In the evening we could walk into beautiful Bayeux in 10 minutes and choose from a selection of bars and restaurants without having to worry about driving back. you are within walking distance of the Bayeux war cemetery and the excellent museum close by. When we got back to the house there was Wifi to update Facebook and contact friends as well as research the next days activities in a comfortable spacious lounge and dining area. To say the house is fully equipped does not do it justice, there is everything you need for your stay including linen on the beds and towels in the bathroom, even tea and coffee, anything you do need is just a very short distance away at Carafour supermarket. Sadly we never got to meet Beatrice but her instructions and arrangements for our arrival and departure were faultless. It made much more sense to stya here than in a hotel from a convenience point of view as well as saving money and I would highly recommend it to D Day tourists.

“Lovely house, home from home.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just arrived back from our stay and can recommend this house. Large and spacious with plenty of garden. The property is in a quiet community and is well placed for the city, just a 10 minute walk to the centre. 5 minutes gets you to a nice clean supermarket, 3 minutes to the park with children's swings etc.

Communication was good with the host, we called 1 hr away from the house and we met with Beatrice. She explained everything to us and was most helpful.

The kitchen has everything you require for cooking, the TV and important broadband was all working well.

We were not lucky with the weather but then the space of the house and its amenities came into use.

Only three in our family but this house can cope comfortably with more.

Lots of toys for children, bicycles, table tennis, badminton games to keep youngsters entertained.

Thank you Beatrice.

“perfectly situated and spacious”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Beatrice's son who was most helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and he ensured we were well familarised with the house before he left us to it.
The house was well spaced out which provided us all with enough privacy along with a large living area and kitchen to enjoy the large communal space as a family. The garden at this property is a huge plus point, the area was very much enjoyed by all the family , sun bathing and bbq. House location very close to markets and restaurants.
Would recommend this property. Thanks for wonderful stay!

“Really comfortable family home”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We booked this property and we were not disappointed. It was particularly suitable for our children as they range in ages from 4 to 15. The older children were able to have their own space upstairs and the younger one was able to go to bed early without being disturbed. The property is well equipped with everything you would need for a great holiday. The owner Beatrice was very helpful on our arrival and ensured that we had everything we needed. Outside the house there is a lovely garden with outdoor furniture, sun loungers and space for the kids to play. I would love to book this property again in the future.

Agree with all of previous review. We had a great stay in Bayeux, in comfortable surroundings, with plenty of space... a must when travelling with teenagers. A very pretty private garden too.

“Excellent Location and very comfortable house.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

10 minutes walk to the centre of town. House very comfortable with lots of space. Lovely garden with patio, barbecue and outdoor furniture. Excellent location for touring Normandy including the Bayeux Tapestry, Mont St. Michel, the D Day beaches, military graveyards, Lisieux, Deauville etc. There are lots of cafes, shops and restaurants in town and there were two lovely markets during the week of our stay.
The owner Beatrice, her husband and niece were exceedingly kind and very welcoming. They ensured we had everything we could need for our stay and were available if required.
Would definitely recommend this lovely house for a holiday.
