APARTMENT IN BAYEUX HISTORIC CENTER WITH INTERNET

Bayeux Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, bathroom, separate WC, kitchen, dining / living room area

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. 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. Bed linens and towels are included for a small fee. 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 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 were in the area for the 70th Anv of D Day so we could not have asked for a better location. we rented a car and had no trouble getting a spot across the street . the apt was small but for the two of us it had everything that we needed the washer dryer unit was a great bonus. We were close to all the shops and neighbourhood restaurants

Great location

Kitchen is big enough to cook in and well equipped. Comfortable accommodations in a great location with pastry shops, coffee shops and restaurants right outside the front door. The town shuts down early the street is quiet at night.

Feel in love with location!

  • 4 of 5
Bayeux is charming and the apartment was perfect for the stay. It was a very clean and relaxing space. Very quiet. Ideally located in the city - short walks to eateries, shopping, grocery store, and the tourist bureau. The tourist bureau is very helpful. There are numerous one day excursions that are easy from this location - Normandy beaches (tour), Mont St. Michel (tour), Rouen (by train), and Cherbourg (by train). I would recommend the Old Town Bayeux walking tour for a history of the city - you can pick up a map at the tourist bureau. The British War Cemetery, the Musee Baron Gerard, the Battle of Normandy Museum, and the Tapestry Museum are all worthwhile venues to visit and all are within walking distance from the apartment. The view of the Cathedral from the apartment is picturesque both day and night. It was nice to have someplace that felt like home to come back to after being out and about seeing the sites during the day. L'Arthe is a restaurant a short walk from the apartment - the owners were delightful and the food good - I would highly recommend a stop here during your stay. I would definitely return and stay here again in the future.

great location!

  • 5 of 5
The flat was just as advertised (definitely a hike up the stairs with large bags), but the views are great, the location is wonderful, and it's well stocked with just about everything you could need. The owner has cable and internet in the process of being installed. It wasn't functional yet, but it probably will be soon.

The owner gave us very clear instructions about things, and she was also very helpful over e-mail as we prepared for our trip. The only thing we had trouble figuring out was the washer/dryer: we couldn't find a timed dry setting, and it wouldn't let us pull our clothes out until it had decided they were dry enough. I'm sure we were doing something wrong, since a 5-hour dry cycle is probably excessive!

We would definitely stay here again if we were headed back to Bayeux.

Home away from home and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
This is a romantic, comfortable, satisfying apartment–a designer’s idea of the perfect garret apartment. Even though it is in the midst of old Bayeux, it is quiet and very private. We made ourselves right at home.

The windows and skylights make for a well-lighted space and offer lovely views.
The view of the cathedral from the living room window is spectacular. Open the window and hear them ring the changes. And from the bedroom window, you can check out the street scene below–and cast an eye on your car in the parking lot across the street.

The kitchen has everything you need, including toaster and coffeemaker. The washing machine was most welcome after 7 days on the road.The bathroom is good-sized, with a large bath (separate WC). The bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed and a large chest of drawers.

Parking in the lot opposite is free on Sunday and between 7 PM and 9 AM on weekdays. If you are out and about most days, as we were, the lot worked well. For longer daytime parking, see the owners’ recommendation for free lots, as the nearby lot requires feeding the meter every 2 hours.

Speaking of the owners' recommendations, the instructions were excellent. Even after a long day's drive, we had no trouble finding the apartment, operating the locks, and getting ourselves settled and oriented. The owners are both pleasant and professional and make the whole process easy and stress-free.

Location, location location!
A first-class bakery/patisserie is located a few steps away, and an excellent charcuterie is just down the street. The Tourist Office and a small grocery store are also just down the street, and there are restaurants, specialty shops, and markets galore in any direction you turn.

The tapestry is a short walk away. The beaches are 15-20 minutes by car. Innumerable day-trips are possible, so it is an excellent base for sight-seeing in the region.

We look forward to returning some day!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5
Me and my partner have just arrived back from the most wonderful holiday. The apartment was warm and very practical. The location was excellent as it was just down the road from the tourist office which was a great help! It certainly helped us with regards to public transport getting to and from places. The view was beautiful - it got to a point where we were excited about eating breakfast in front of it! The owners were very communicative and everything went smoothly. We both agree we would stay here again!
