Bayeux is a medium sized city with easy access by car to all the D-Day sites. Our hostess was genial and spoke quite good English. The room is a full suite with a large living room with comfortable seating and HDTV. The breakfast we requested was typical French continental with fresh fruit, delicious croissants baquettes, and cafe au lait. There are a number of nice restaurants in the compact downtown area. A beautiful, ancient cathedral. All of the D-day sites are important but the most moving is the cemetary and its museum.
We stayed at Le Grand Arbre for 4 nights and felt right at home with our hostess and her family. The house was amazing with loads of charm and history, very comfortable, well decorated and the breakfast table was simply beautiful every morning! Of course our breakfast was delicious too.
This was our second visit to Bayeux. It's a good location to use as a base for traveling all around Normandy. Le Grand Arbre is easy to find (GPS!) and in a quiet area right outside the main village.
Marie was very helpful with all of tourist questions and always asked about our day. She was quite personable, sharing stories of her family and their lives and interested in ours. She's definitely in the right business! I highly recommend Le Grand Arbre. You won't be disappointed.
We were in Bayeux primarily to visit the sites of the D-Day invasion of Europe and spent 2 nights at Le Grand Arbre
The property truly lives up to it's claim - -it was indeed charming and also extremely comfortable & clean - -our upstairs suite was very spacious - -it felt rustic and but also had just the right touch when it came to modern amenities such as the bathroom and shower - -we also slept extremely well in a great bed. The continental breakfast that was laid out for us was an absolutely perfect example of "le petit dejuener"
It was the genuine warmth, hospitality and affection of our host(ess) - -Marie Violaine - -that was perhaps the best part of our experience. She is an outstanding individual who is obviously doing all possible to ensure her guests will have nothing but a totally positive experience.
Anyone who is lucky enough to visit Bayeux and stay at Le Grande Arbre will not be disappointed.
