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.

Here tourists enjoying their holidays in Bayeux may enjoy water sports, sailing or, weather permitting, a spot of swimming and sunbathing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Bayeux, France

Of course the main attraction of Bayeux is its world famous tapestry. 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.

We were 2 families of 6 with kids from 3 to 16 and 2 grandparents. We also had another 2 friends stop in for a weekend. The house was really perfect and the photo's don't lie. There was loads of space for us all. The pool was a welcome break from some of the really hot days we had and although it was heated there was no need for that for us. The garden is very big with lots of trees and seating places The house was beautifully presented and very clean when we arrived and had everything we needed. We went on several day trips from here and it was all very accessible. The host was really nice and helpful and we would highly recommend this place to everyone. We used the barbeque pretty much every evening except the one where we fine dined in restaurant in the town. I can't rate this place highly enough. We travelled from Australia and met up with our families still living in Ireland and the UK and had the most wonderful week.

                                                                                                      Where to start? We chose this property because a) it was close to Omaha beach, which we knew to be an interesting and beautiful beach, and b) there was a pool. Both of these features well exceeded expectations. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach, watching the ever changing coastline (we saw dolphins twice and a seal on three occasions), swam in the sea most days (really clean shoreline, all sand, slow incline so you never get out of your depth), followed by a warmer swim in the pristine pool (owner checks and cleans it daily). We twice walked up to the American military cemetery (c. 5 mile round trip, but lovely walk, mostly down the beach) and there are two Omaha museums walkable (one at the Vierville end, the other at St Laurent sur mer). Overall, this was a great base for D day explorations but also 20 mins to Bayeux and 15 mins to Port en Bessen (pretty port and good Sunday market). A small but well stocked supermarket also walkable (in Vierville sur mer), only closed on Thursdays. The property itself is perfectly located, so quiet, with a stunning view of the beach from both the kitchen and living room - both rooms have huge picture windows. It is also really well equipped - only two years old, seemed to have brand new dish washer, washing machine, cooker, iron, etc. All the crockery you'd need and we were particularly impressed by how well stocked the kitchen was with dishwasher and washing tabs, bin bags, etc (in places we've stayed at before, there's often only one or two of such items). Wifi and phone reception pretty poor with the hills immediately behind, but that wasn't important to us. A real find that we will be returning to without a doubt.

It had all you needed, was perfectly fitted out, even to the firewood to keep you toastie warm. It was very quiet. With just the birds and rustling of the leaves to wake you of a morning. The bakery was clean, and tidy. As was the other buildings and gardens in the property. Claude and Pascale were brilliant and very accomodating hosts. Claude explained everything, even showed my husband around his garden, talking about the different trees and shrubs. It is an easy drive to Bayeux, where you will find amble places for shopping, and is close to all the D-Day memorials. You must try the old towns butcher and pastry maker, beats the bigger shopping centre. We found all the locals spoke a little English, and when they didn't we still effectively communicated, with a point and a smile. We had an easy drive from CDG airport, and also an easy drive out to Mont St Michel. If we were to travel back from Australia, we would stay here again. Thanks Natalie and Corey (Cairns, Australia)
