Sunny 40m2 apartment on the top floor of a small building. Great view of the medieval cathedral Notre-Dame from the living room. Free wireless internet. Cable TV. Cleaning fee, bed linens and towels are included in the nightly rate. It is situated on rue Saint Martin with its shopping, dining and strolling. The apartment is simple, basic, bright and pleasant. It has a separate bedroom with a 2-person bed. In the living room, there is a leather couch that converts to a bed. It is perfect for a couple or a couple with 1 or 2 children. LGBT friendly. There are some stairs, so we do not recommend babies or toddlers. The bathroom includes a French-style tub with hand-held shower head. The WC is separate. The kitchen is equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, fridge, dishes, cooking utensils, coffee pot, electric kettle and a washer/dryer. There is a DVD player and a stereo. It is a super location. Centrally-located in the historic center of Bayeux - close to everything.
Parking in the lot across the street (Halle aux Viandes) is free on Sundays and between 7 PM and 9 AM other days. If you are out and about most days, the lot works well. For longer daytime parking, there's a large free lot a 7-minute walk away (Place Saint Patrice).
Carrefour City is a small supermarket less than 5 minutes away by foot on Rue Saint-Jean, right past the Bayeux tourism agency (very useful for maps, information on local and nearby activities). There are plenty of bakeries, pastry shops, sandwich places, as well as ethnic, traditional French and Norman restaurants within walking distance. On Wednesdays, there is an outdoor farmers market rue Saint Jean - about 200m away from the apartment. There is also a second outdoor farmers market up the Rue Saint Malo street on Saturday mornings. The centre Leclerc, Carrefour and Cora (on the way to Caen) are large supermarkets that sell food, wine, cider, electronics, books, movies, clothes and the like.
We live in New Mexico, but have family in Normandy so visit often. We love staying in our little apartment!
Thomas and Martine Edwards purchased this apartment in 2008
The view, listening to the cathedral bells, strolling the ancient streets of Bayeux... heaven!
The view is exquisite.
Clean, comfortable and a great location! This apartment in a charming building is centrally located in Bayeux with spectacular views of the Cathedral. This property is not fancy or plush: but, it makes a great place to stay when visiting Bayeux and the Normandy beaches. Sleeps three comfortably. Fabulous location, great value and responsive and accommodating owners. Would not hesitate to rent again!
The apartment in Bayeux was just what we needed. The kitchen was equipped with items for light meals, breakfasts, and snacks. The washer/dryer combo was very helpful (although we mostly let our clothes air dry because the dryer takes a long time to dry items). Our bed was comfortable and our son said that the couch bed for fine for him as well. We all appreciated the space that the apartment provided. It was nice that our son had his own space and we had our own room. The apartment has fans to help move air on warm evenings. The wifi worked great. The views from the living room are really splendid! We would stay in the Bayeux apartment again!
By far and away, of all the places we stayed in on our 50 day trip to Europe, this was the highlight!! and the BEST!!
First, let me say this this apartment is immaculate! Did I say immaculate?...It was better than immaculate!
Martine is one of the nicest people to work with. She understands the ups and downs of traveling and was amenable to a few changes we had to make in our itinerary.
Thank you Martine!!
My wife and I washed the floors and cleaned the apartment as a Thank You and also to help the next visitors.
Martine, I'd love to stay in your apartment our next trip to Bayeux!!!
Exactly what we expected, and wanted. Beautiful view of the cathedral. Very easy trips to the D-Day beaches, memorials and museums; All well marked and easy to find. Loved the "main street" right outside the door, for the shopping and sightseeing.
We had a fantastic time, great location, will stay here again
Bayeux is an excellent base for exploring Normandy, and this apartment was perfect for our 5-night stay. The photos are representative of the real thing. The location is ideal: the sites of Bayeux are within easy walking distance, everything needed for dining, shopping, etc. is nearby. Martine is prompt and efficient in making arrangements; she provides an exhaustive "welcome" brochure in advance with everything (including helpful photos) you need to access and enjoy the apartment. Many details overlooked by other VRBO landlords get careful attention here: outlets and power strips where you need them; hangers in the closet; bedside reading lamps and an ample shelf for your guidebooks, IPads, etc. This is a fine value...the night-time view of the Cathedral and skyline alone are worth the price.
Bayeux is a small tourist-friendly town in Normandy that boasts the famous 11th-Century Bayeux Tapestry and the Notre-Dame cathedral. Bayeux is a great place to stroll and dine. There are museums, shops, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, pastry shops, and tea rooms which are all within a short walking-distance to this apartment. It is located right in the center of this medieval town, on picturesque Rue Saint Martin. Omaha, Juno and the other D-Day landing beaches are just a few kms away. Caen is 30 km away with its shopping, Festiland and Loisirland amusement parks.
