About Sally Byrne
Michael and I are an Anglo/Irish couple who grew up 20 miles north of London, where we worked for many years. We moved to Normandy in 2003 and ran an award-winning B&B for 13 years but recently saw the need for more short-term self-catering accommodation in the highly popular town of Bayeux.
Sally Byrne purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Sally Byrne chose Bayeux
Bayeux has always been one of our favourite towns so it was an easy decision to buy and renovate Studio St Jean in late 2014 when it came on the market. Since it's opening in May 2015 it has been full for 80% of the time, with some wonderful feedback from our guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
Studio St Jean is located in one of the oldest streets in Bayeux, right in the heart of all the shops, restaurants and bars, with a fantastic market every Wednesday morning. We love that it is right in the centre of everything and yet, because it has a closed entrance it is still as peaceful and quiet as if it were out in the country.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect location for sightseeing and touring
No need for a car. Clean comfortable with owners that went the extra mile when our arrival was delayed due to train delays
Nightmare Check In
We had trouble finding the studio as the road was closed and we were not given instructions on how to access it, the owner was not at the studio when we arrived and we had to drive around to find her private home (which does not have an address to put into Google) to pick up the keys, and she was very rude, insinuating it was our fault. Normandy and Mont St. Michel were not nearby. Be sure to bring your own toiletries, nothing supplied.
Unfortunately we were not at the apartment to meet our guests. They had requested an early checkin at 1pm and we waited until 3pm. We had been sending emails, messages via VRBO, text messages and phone messages since the previous day to reconfirm their arrival time but heard nothing. They eventually arrived at 6pm having expected the airport to be a 30 minute drive and were horrified to discover that Mont St Michel was a 2 hour drive not ten minutes away and did not understand that Bayeux is IN Normandy. Omaha Beach is about 15 minutes. A little research and preparation for their trip may have saved a lot of stress. This lady was the rudest and most belligerent I have encountered in almost 20 years in this business. This is a self-catering apartment not a hotel, consequently personal toiletries are not provided.
In the heart of Bayeux
Cute place, very quiet and convenient.
Definitely recommend this property.
The location was perfect. Sally and Michael were very accommodating and met us at the train station. The apartment is in the center of the pedestrian street, close to everything.
We’re very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment and in turn, thank you for leaving it so clean and tidy
Great little apartment in Bayeux
The flat is centrally located and convenient for accessing visitor information, restaurants, shops and tours, yet very quiet at night. Hosts were accessible and responsive, even providing transportation from the train station. Highly recommend for couples or singles planning a visit to the Normandy area.
We were happy to meet you from the station and are pleased you enjoyed your stay
Great base to enjoy Bayeux
Clean, well-equipped studio perfect for two. Central location, close to Place de Quebec, from where various tours depart.
Thank you for your reservation and we’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay
Studio Thiaumerie is in the historic centre of Bayeux, less than a 5 minute walk to the cathedral and to the tapestry, which tells the story of William the Conqueror's invasion of England in 1066 and celebrates it's 950th anniversary in 2016. There is also an excellent art and history museum next to the cathedral and tours to the D-Day beaches and Mont St Michel leave less than a 3 minute walk from the apartment.
