Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Bayeux area, France, Your Home Away From Home

The city of Bayeux is located within the French ‘department’ of Calvados, which is within the Lower Normandy region, to the far north of the country. Although the city is probably best known for its famous tapestry, visitors looking to spend their holidays in Bayeux are also drawn by the city’s idyllic location, surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside. There is therefore a great choice of self catering rental accommodation available here, from apartments and villas, to elegant townhouses and rustic old farmhouses and cottages to be found just outside the city.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Bayeux, France

The work of art was allegedly constructed by Reine Mathilde, the wife of William the Conqueror, to commemorate the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Rumour has it, however, that the tapestry was woven and designed in England, although it is now proudly housed in the city’s museum. The city’s Notre Dame Gothic cathedral is another popular tourist draw and was also once home to the iconic tapestry. Visitors who have botanical interests may wish to visit the Jardin Botanique de Bayeux, which house an extensive collection of established indigenous and rare plants and trees, many of which date back to the garden‘s formation in 1864.

The domain is in a quiet village just outside Bayeux with easy access to Arromanches. The owners made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast delicious with homemade cakes, pastries and preserves. A great place to stay and explore the local area.
