Le Guillaume is a tastefully re-furbished apartment on the second floor of a very old building, once part of the Cathedral. We purchased in 2002, and had the entire apartment internally demolished, and re-designed to make it suitable for modern living in the 21st century, yet remaining part of a stunning medieval setting. The property is not suitable for young children or the very old. It has four rooms. A living area with the original ceiling oak beams, Victorian cast iron fireplace surround, and solid wood floors. The sofa bed is 4' wide, so unsuitable for 2 large adults. Fine for one adult, or one or two children. Wi Fi connection. A kitchen which is part of this living area, cleverly divided with a breakfast bar, and with features such as lowered ceiling, spotlights and hidden extractor fan. A lovely bedroom with a "corona" over the bed, the whole room decorated in pinks and white, and a blue and white shower room, available to both guests in bedroom and those using the living room. The shower room boasts an Italian walk-in shower. The apartment is superbly equipped for four.
We are a retired couple who have been living in/visiting Normandy for many years. Jean is a French native having been born in St Lo and we met in Derbyshire in 1988. Jean has a brother and sister in Normandy. Our permanent home is in Derbyshire but we spend probably half of our time near to Bayeux. I am a retired Secondary school Head of Department and Mother to 6 boys, a family which includes 2 sets of twins and I am extremely proud of them. Jean is a widower, a retired University Lecturer, and linguist. Jean has 3 children, all successful business people. We are keen caravanners. I love my gardening, DIY, sewing and when I have time knitting too. Jean is at present learning Spanish, as we enjoy winter holidays in Spain and the Canaries. We look forward to further future travel.
Dawn Petts purchased this apartment in 2001
We went into the local notaire, and saw a very dull picture of the apartment. It was the location, as next door neighbour to William the Conqueror's' vast and impressive cathedral, that really made us buy it. Certainly not the appalling state it was in when we purchased! We realised that to do the job properly we would have to employ someone locally who could envisage from conception to reality exactly what could be achieved with the internal space available. This meant massive alterations, and at one point no internal walls were left standing. Parking is no problem, as just up rue de jurisdiction opposite the apartment, is a large square called place de Charles de gaulle, where parking is free, safe and shaded. On arrival it is easy to offload luggage right outside the apartment.
Right outside your door is the cathedral (no bells except on Sunday for services + for weddings). The area is quiet, and cobbled and picturesque. The bakers, boutiques and glorious selection of restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. Pop out first thing for your hot croissants. Stroll to view the tapestry, the various museums, the English war cemetery withing easy walking distance. The supermarket E l'eclerc is 10 minutes walk away, so cooking in the lovely modern kitchen is not a problem. On days for travelling further afield try Arromanche, Deauville, Trouville, the beautiful and moving American cemetery at Omaha Beach, there is an abundance of things to do and see. The flat has lovely pink/white bedroom ideal for honeymooners,-space for 2 more, so 2 couple or youngsters possible.
We spent 6 nights in this lovely apartment in Bayeux. I was initially worried that it might be too small for three of us (3 adults), but we loved it! I can't imagine a better location in Bayeux. The apartment is clean, comfortable and full of light. The bathroom is relatively large for the size of the apartment with a great shower. It was a pleasure to deal with the owner -- she responded to any questions within hours and all arrangements went without a hitch. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
This lovely one bedroom apartment was perfectly located for all the things we wanted to do in this area of Normandy. It's downtown location made for a nice walk to dinner after driving all day. There are loads of restaurants and stores within walking distance.
The apartment was fitted with everything you could need. It was a very nice stay.
Le Guilluame welcomes the weary traveler with its charming decor and with its historical location. Literally, next door to the Bayeux Cathedral and to the MAHB, the apartment's location is perfect. Add the proximity to the D-Day beaches as well as to the gorgeous Normandy countryside, you have a the perfection foundation for a great vacation. The kitchen is outfitted with all the necessary appliances to make wonderful meals for your Bayeux market day (Saturday and Wednesday weekly) purchases. Make sure you are comfortable with climbing stairs to reach this historically renovated apartment. Enjoy the comfort of feeling at home during your stay.
Our first trip to France was made so much easier with this wonderful apartment. Bayeux is such a beautiful city and this apartment puts you right in the heart of the historic area. The apartment is decorated in a very tasteful and comfortable way. It really made us feel at home when we arrived every night after a great day of seeing the wonderful sights in the area. The D-Day beaches and museums are so easy to reach from this location. If we are ever in that area again we would definitely want to stay here in this apartment. Dawn was a tremendous help to us getting there from Paris. She is a delight to work with.
My wife and I stayed here for a week from the 8th August. It is a great apartment in probably the best location in Bayeux central for all the bars and restaurants.It also is the perfect base for visiting the D Day beaches and Pegasus bridge.would definitely recommend
My 3 nieces (15-23 y) and I had a wonderful stay in this perfectly situated apartment in Bayeux. It was a real treat to be literally right next to the beautiful cathedral, and a couple blocks from the Bayeux tapestry. We had a rental car and made easy day-trips to the Normandy beaches and the American Cemetery (a highlight of our trip), the Entretat Cliffs, and Mont Saint Michel. There were excellent restaurants steps from the apartment door and the apartment has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Dawn and Jean were friendly and professional from the initial contact to the prompt return of the security deposit. I would definitely recommend staying here!
