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.

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.

Sèverine is a wonderful host and has thought of every detail to make the stay perfect. The garden is wonderful. The kitchen super equipped. The bedrooms all very comfortable. All beautifully clean and tastefully decorated. Loads of tourist information provided. A short drive to many wonder places. I would highly recommend and will certainly return. Karensa and family.

It was fantastic. The use of the hotel's pool, tennis courts, bicycles, restaurants was excellent. The cottage is luxurious in feel and comfort. We were blessed with fabulous weather so cooked BBQs in the garden and chilled on the decking. Port en Bessin and Bayeaux are must see visits away from the cottage. We would recommend this property as it is simply amazing!

A very comfortable, spotless and extremely well equipped holiday home for up to six people. The house is in a small and peaceful hamlet, within 10 minutes drive of Bayeux and 2 minutes from the pretty coastal town of Port en Bessin. It is also ideally situated for visits to D-Day Memorials and Museums, located in the centre of the Landing Beaches. The house is very well maintained and has been recently refurbished to a very high standard. The owners were very welcoming, accommodating and helpful. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this property and would like to stay next year. Thank you to the owners.
