“Our vacation in Normandy”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We planned our vacation to Normandy France this year with the goal of visiting the historical and cultural sights and wanted to stay someplace where we could also rest and enjoy the local surroundings. Gite Le Kennedy made our trip so memorable. The location is fantastic, although we rented a car, we walked to the town center of Bayuex daily. Bayuex is very charming and has plenty of history, good restaurants and local museum attractions. We were able to drive across Normandy from here very easily. The accommodations were superb, very comfortable, and the electric shutters are awesome. The garden is beautiful, very quiet, and felt very private.We would definitely recommend Gite Le Kennedy if visiting the area!

“A Wonderfully Relaxing Hideaway”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at this lovely location in early September and found the gite to be as welcoming and enjoyable as advertised. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and given all necessary information regarding the gite and the surrounding area. Virginie and family are such welcoming and helpful hosts. Of particular interest was the lovely seating area on the patio and in the lovely garden when one can enjoy a relaxing glass of wine at the patio table or reclined on the loungers in the garden. We would definitely recommend a stay to anyone travelling in Normandie. Our thanks to Virginie and her parents for their hospitality.

“Charming, comfortable apartment walking distance to old Bayeux city center”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We loved our 4 days at Gite le Kennedy. All of the previous reviews are spot-on. I want to add that the apartment had a DVD player and 2 DVD's that made our visit even more memorable. They were The Longest Day and Saving Private Ryan, two films about D-Day. I hadn't seen them previously, and in fact was in Bayeux principally to see the tapestry; however, after watching the films, we had to go to the beaches to experience and learn more about this important historic place. The apartment's garden is lovely, and there is a clothesline, too. With a washing machine in the house, it's convenient for the visitors to do a load of wash right there.
Thank you, Bernard and Virginie. I want to add that when we had one day of rain, we were able to have a cozy day "at home" in our stylish, spacious, and restful Normandy apartment.

“Fantastique!!!”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

If you're thinking of visiting Bayeux you wont go far wrong by booking Gite Le kennedy.
Situated in a very quiet cul de sac 5 - 10 mins walk from the centre of Bayeux the location is fantastic. Also a great base for all the WW2 beaches, cemeteries and museums.
Inside there is everything you could ask for and more, the owners have literally thought of everything.
I can't recommend this place highly enough and would like to thank Bernard, Joelle and Virginie for making our stay so good.
Will definitely go back.

“Awesome place to stay!!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My buddies and I really enjoyed staying here on our holiday to the Normandy area. The cottage is super close to the "downtown" area of Bayeux and the cathedral. Virginie (the owner's daughter) picked us up from the train station and provided us with some great recommendations around the area. If you're looking for a great place to stay, look no further ... this is it.

“We would definitely recommend this property.”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Gite le Kennedy is lovely accommodation. It was very clean, the kitchen is very well equipped and there is a large off road parking area. The pull-out bed was very comfortable and very easy to make. The owners are really nice and very helpful, without being intrusive. There were plenty of maps and tourist information in the property. Bayeux centre, and local supermarkets are only 5-10 minutes walk away via road or a path by the canal and all the attractions and larger supermarkets are walkable. We would definitely recommend this property.
