“Perfect apartment in Bayeux”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Gite Le Kennedy for 4 days in April and truly wished we could have stayed much longer. The proprietors are very welcoming and the communication prior to and during our stay was extremely good. The apartment is in a quiet square just a 10 minute walk from the very center of Bayeux – and the walk is lovely along the river and into the ancient cobbled streets – perfectly picturesque. If you must drive into the center – and we did, as we had to manage parents at a hotel – the drive is 2 minutes, 3 if the one traffic light is red. If you are planning to be in Normandy to explore the WWII beaches and memorials or just the beautiful scenery, it is extremely easy to exit Bayeux onto the main roads from Gite Le Kennedy – the location is fantastic.

The apartment is bright, super clean, very well-designed and appointed and very spacious for 2 people, and comfortable for more. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the water pressure in the shower was great. Parking is off the street, the wi-fi works well and the patio/garden was enjoyable and relaxing.

There are ONLY positive things to say about the apartment – and Les Gilles were wonderfully kind and welcoming. We are looking forward to returning to Normandy and will certainly stay at Gite Le Kennedy (if there is availability!) – Merci beaucoup, Les Gilles!

We drove to the gite from Caan, where we'd collected our hire car.
Bernard and his wife met us as we arrived and we instantly felt comfortable.
They and their adult daughter Virginie are so lovely. Virginie speaks excellent English.
The gite is immaculate. Its an easy 5 min walk into Bayeux and an easy drive to all Normandy beaches The family were helpful, but not intrusive.
Tip: Bring some tea bags, milk etc so you have something for when you first arrive. (Though Bernard did give us a bottle of local cider xx).

“The perfect base for Bayeux and beyond!”

My wife made this great little find on Trip Advisor and booked 5 nights at this lovely really central little apartment within walking distance of Bayeux town centre.

We received a really nice welcome from the owners which is important to folks from Ireland - the land of a thousand welcomes.

It had all the facilities we could need and we were so happy with it as a base for touring Normandy that we decided to stay an extra few nights there.

Couldn't fault it and would definitely recommend this little gem. We could easily be tempted again as it would be gorgeous in the summer with its own little outside space.

Thanks to Bernard, Joelle and Virginie for their hospitality and for putting up with my awful abuse of the French language when they invited us around for a drink.

Au revoir, mes amis et Bon vacances.

Bernard and his family have created a well furnished apartment with a full kitchen including a clothes washer. Everything is beautifully arranged and decorated. The location is only 10 minutes walk along the picturesque river to the city center. We could not have designed a better experience for our visit to Bayeux!

“Beautiful apartment, exceptional hosts!”

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the lovely apartment of Gite le Kennedy this month. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything you would need to feel at home. It is at the rear of Bernard and Joelle's lovely home and we had full use of the yard and a pretty patio.
Bernard, Joelle and Virginie were excellent hosts, who went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We were traveling by train and Bernard picked us up and returned us to the train station. When Bernard found out that we couldn't book a D-Day tour, he spent the morning showing us the beaches and museums and dropped us at the American Cemetery. He and Joelle also showed us their new vacation home at the beach that was under construction. They are lovely people and they made our stay in Bayeux very memorable!
I would recommend this rental for anyone-- but if you are going without a car, be aware that it is maybe a mile walk to the main tourist area.

“Wonderful!!!”

Traveling on our honeymoon, we wanted to spend a few days relaxing in the French Countryside of Normandy. This was the perfect location to visit Bayeux, the landing beaches, Mt. St. Michel and Cider/Cheese country.

The accommodations were absolutely beautiful with a view of the cathedral. It is a downstairs apartment fully equipped with a modern kitchen, bath, etc.. All the construction is brand new and fully equipped with everything we needed for an extended stay. There was a lovely garden with table and chairs for our use as well.

Our quarters were a 10 minute walk from the center of town (a good thing for us as we were looking for a night's sleep). We rented a car and our hosts were gracious enough to allow us to park within the gates to their home and immediately outside of our room. There is also a large grocery store within 5 minutes (by car) that served us well when we just wanted to relax for the evening with wine, cheese, sausage and breads.

On our last night, our hosts and their daughter invited into their home for drinks. They are a gracious and kind family. They went above an beyond by driving us to the train station the morning we had to leave.

If you want a quiet stay in Bayeux (or Normandy in general), you wont find a more comfortable, hospitable and affordable place to stay. We could not have been more pleased.

Thank you Joanne, Bernard and Virginie!!

“Brilliant Bayeux”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

WE found the Gite (apartment) in excellent condition and very clean. The kitchen was very well fitted out and lacked nothing. There were even tabs for the dishwasher. The bathroom was of the same standard and very well designed so that when my sister called in on her way thru to the chunnel from Brittany staying overnight she also had access and the sofa bed in the living room was vey comfortable...apparently.
There was access thru the french windows to a patio area with lights and also to the garden which was very private and secure with great views of Bayeux Cathedral...as promised.
Our hosts were extremely pleasant and welcoming and left us to our own devices even though they live upstairs. They helped us on a couple of occasions too.
The property is newly developed and they will be adding in a dvd player connected to the flat screen tv and leaving clear access instructions for the free wifi.
You can walk to Bayeux along the river and medieval walls in 15 minutes and Bayeux itself is a delight and there are 75 restaurants I am sure! There is a small French Restaurant around the corner. Moules in the day New Quisine in the evenings.
There are also big local supermarkets, Carrefour (5 mins by car) and Leclerc 10-15minutes. Leclerc is the better.
Access to all the Normandy features like Arrowmanches and the WW11 sites are easy and close by. But do see the tapestry!
