“Simply perfect”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We have returned from an 8 day stay at this wonderful holiday home. As per previous reviews, the accommodation is superb and immaculate. A short 10 minute walk into the centre of Bayeux with lots of amenities, as well as things to do. We were so warmly welcomed by our hosts Bernard, Joelle and Virginie that we were very sad to leave. Would we return? Yes in a heartbeat, a perfect place to stay and explore the beautiful and historic Normandy Coast .

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We travelled to see the D-day beaches and the Tapestry. This gite is the most perfectly placed one for both these excursions. It is in the middle of all the D-day sites and is located just on the edge of centre to Bayeux. 10 mins walk to the Tapestry museum and no more than 30 mins either way to the edges of the D-day sites.
Booking and talking to Virginie via email was easy and the information given was clear and helpful. The owners Bernard, Joelle and Virginie were very friendly and welcoming and once we were shown around they left us to do our own thing. Even though they lived above the gite we didn't even hear them! Parking was great as it was 'off the road' and in a secluded close which meant total quiet at night.
The gite itself was stylish,clean and well equipped .A massive bed in the main bedroom and in the lounge was a great sofa bed. Could easily accomodate 2 couples or a family. My only gripe would be that an English channel other than the news channels on the t.v would be good.
The bottle of Bordeux given to us when we checked out was a lovely touch!
To sum it up, this place was excellent!!

“Beautifully Presented & Very Comfortable”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Gite le Kennedy is the perfect place to stay when visiting Bayeux and the Normandy area. The property offers everything you could want or need for your visit, whether a 2 day or 2 week stay. The accommodation is very well presented, cleaned to an extremely high standard and fully equipped with all the “mod-cons” one has come to rely on in everyday life.

I travelled with my parents who are both in their 70’s. The large walk-in shower was a real bonus in this respect. They were very complimentary about the king size bed which, they say, was the most comfortable they have ever slept in! I used the large pull-out sofa-bed in the living room, which I also found extremely comfortable. We didn’t use the TV or DVD player, but the WiFi speed was very good. The kitchen is fully equipped with good quality appliances and utensils making it a real pleasure to self-cater.

Virginie and her parents went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure our stay was as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.

Thank you Virginie, Bernard and Joëlle for your wonderful hospitality.

“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.
