The Cathedral

I've lived in Bayeux since 1999. My job is not far. It is a quiet city, attractive to many tourists: Middle Ages, architecture and history, and a place to rest after the visits in the various war museums all around...

The cathedral is my landmark: wherever I come from, I think "home sweet home"

there is a medieval festival, first weekend in july "LES FETES MEDIEVALES de bayeux"

River Aure

There's a nice walk along the River that may lead you from the campsite to the town centre in a few minutes.
I do not live in a tent, of course!
I ' ve just settled by the river and I always go shopping on foot.

There are nice hotels in Bayeux as well: I recommend Churchill Hotel

And all around you may find B & Bs

View the old city

The river flows under the houses, the hospital... it sometimes overflows after heavy rains
(it last happened in 1999 and 2000, as a welcome to me)

Pros and Cons

    I'm back to your page once again and appreciating your excellent tips for lodging and restaurants, among others. More interested in this region than ever before...finding ancestors from Anjou region. Maybe a trip on the horizon!

    How lucky you are to live in Normandy! It's one of my favorite places in all the world. Thanks for the good tips.

    We found Le Pommier by accident last October and you're right. It's a lovely restaurant. We were there on a chilly day and really enjoyed the warmth of both food and ambience. Good tip. Thanks.

    I will surely find the information about hotels more handy when I venture into Bayeux. Thanks for sharing.
