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 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.

It is in a very quiet location - yet a short drive to a supermarket, restaurants, and motorways. The property is set in a wonderful private garden, with fields either side. There is everything one could need with a large shower, 2 TVs, one with a DVD player (French channels only though), a dishwasher, washing machine and all the crockery and cooking utensils anyone could need. The WiFi is very reliable. The house was spotless. Thank you Ingrid.

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.

Lovely peaceful surroundings and very well located for all Normandy has to offer. Cyril is a wonderful host very warm, welcoming and very helpful nothing is too much trouble. Cyril lives next door which is completely private and separate from the rental cottage which is fantastic if you require anything. We only had a three day stay here but would love to come back and stay at this lovely little cottage for longer.
