Manoir Normand is in the heart of Bayeux, just five minutes stroll from the local bakery, green-grocers and butchers and ten minutes from the town's famous restaurant, which also offers delivery to the Manoir. The historic town is well known for the UNESCO classified Bayeux Tapestry, depicting the Norman’s conquest of England and the medieval cathedral is also just a short walk away. It is a beautiful town with many renowned restaurants, historical buildings and interesting museums about this fascinating part of Normandy.

The town is also a great base for exploring the D-Day Landing beaches which are just a short drive away. Arromanches (12km) and Omaha (24km) are examples of two beaches of historical importance as well as the batteries and cliffs of Longues-sur-Mer (12km) just north of Bayeux. Private guided tours of this area can be arranged for guests.

This part of Normandy has so many activities on offer. Sand yachting is very popular on the coast with centres in Asnelles (13km) and Omaha (24km), plus there are other watersports such as kayaking, diving, sailing and stand-up paddling nearby. Further inland you will find horse-riding and cycling, including a centre that will hire out electric bikes and offer guided tours of the area. Alternatively, if you are looking for a slower pace then be sure to visit one of the fine Calvados cellars and learn how the drink is made.

If you have more time on your hands then there is so much in Normandy to discover. Head inland to beautiful towns and timeless villages, explore the regions gastronomic delights or head to the coast whether it is the local wide sandy beaches or the rugged cliffs a little further away. Highlights of the area include one of France's oldest University cities, Caen (30km), the seaside town of Deauville (78km) from the 'la belle époque' era and the stunning granite island of Mont St Michel (90km).

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
I’m the owner since July 2016.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
I fell in love with this stunning peaceful house in its beautiful enclosed garden must hold so many memories of times gone by. So quiet I felt miles from nowhere, but actually I was 5-minute walk away from the medieval cathedral, restaurants, shops and the famous Bayeux Tapestry.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Manoir Normand was used in the 18th century as a hunting lodge by the noble Normand family Fréard du Castle. There are still the hunting lodge stables and utility buildings to accommodate hunting tools, carriages and entourage.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Severin Lüthi, coach of Roger Federer.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

Really do?
Visit only a 15-minutes’ drive Arromanches (DDay museum) Longues-sur-Mer (the batteries and the cliffs) and Port-en-Bessin (a charming small fishing harbour).

Really eat?
Cooking master class (minimum 4 persons) in the kitchen of the local restaurant,. The Chef comes and guides you in the making of a full meal (starter, main course and dessert). Learn the tips and advice while sharing a pleasant moment. The participants will enjoy their dishes with the Chef.

Really see?
You can walk to The Bayeux Tapestry of Reine Mathilde (Unesco world heritage site), the Bayeux Cathedral, the Musée Mémorial de la Bataille de Normandie opposite the Commonwealth war cemetery

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
There are 3 musts…
1. Drinking a fine Calvados (offered by a local supplier) while playing pool.
2. Making a BBQ with friends or family profiting from beautiful large quiet garden.
3. Soaking in the hot tub to relax.

Reviews

  • Excellent location!

    Posted by Marlene on 10/01/2019

    It’s a great property that is very convenient to many of the Normandy highlights. Everything, from the property manager to the chef they arranged for us was fantastic.

  • Amazing manoir!

    Posted by Kyra on 31/10/2018

    Top notch renovation. Quality all the way from the linens to the kitchen appliances to the en suite baths. Large comfortable rooms, several gathering spots, lovely garden, parking for 4 or more cars and a carriage house for overflow guests.

  • Perfect!

    Posted by Kyra on 22/10/2018

    I am searching for the superlatives to describe our arrival. It was 8:45 last night. It was dark. We were tired. Our train left Gare St Lazare 20 min late and we only had a 10 min connection in Caen and somehow we made it. They held the train for us! Catherine had ordered taxis for us in Bayeux.
    Short ride to the manoir and then wow! We got a tour of the house, started choosing bedrooms and ate snacks I had picked up in Paris. AND drank all the champagne (thank you) and enjoyed a baguette(thank you) and everyone went to bed happy.
    Catherine also said that our breakfast groceries are a gift from you. And the calvados. I am overwhelmed by your generosity.
    I am in the last week of a 6 week adventure through France and Italy and was feeling a bit worn out. Our arrival here has totally rejuvenated me!
    This is my 5th trip to Normandie and it may just be the best!

  • Fabulous villa

    Posted by Lani on 08/08/2018

    Absolutely enjoyed my time in this property. The house was a perfect fit. The services that you arranged were superb. It was a very good experience. I will certainly use the Manoir again when in Normandy.

  • Just Wonderful!

    Posted by Kathy on 01/07/2018

    We are having an amazing visit to Bayeux - your home is truly remarkable and our family is enjoying our time together in this beautiful place. The chef prepared an incredibly delicious and decadent meal and dessert - complete with fireworks on Nana’s 80th birthday cake. Wonderful! Sabrina’s very informative and interesting guided tour. Thanks for all your assistance in making this a wonderful trip!

  • A Real jewel

    Posted by Michael on 31/10/2017

    The Manoir is a true peaceful retreat, a very quiet place 5 minutes away from the shopping and historical center of Bayeux. It's a real jewel. Its garden is full of energizing greenery and the inside of the Manoir has been decorated and furnished with a great sense of details and a lot of good taste. We have spent a week in this little heaven with our daughters and, what has striken us most, is that we felt really well and at-ease, as if we were at home. The owner himself enjoys spending time there very much and we could feel it. We too felt like spending some time in each room : they are all different, each with a soul of its own and that makes you feel good anywhere around the house. The Cart-Barn has a different atmosphere and decoration but is as attractive and pleasant. The wellness room is also perfect, like this magnificent estate.

  • Exceptional place

    Posted by Serge on 15/08/2017

    This beautiful Manoir is really an ideal place to spend holidays with family or friends. Young ones and older ones enjoyed the quality of the place with such authentic and refined spaces. What is quite exceptional is the different living-rooms which offer many recreational activities like playing pool, home-cinema, reading, games… or simply gathering and chatting. The large dining-room as well as the patio are great to share moments of conviviality. The cooking masterclass organised by the Chef of a nearby restaurant was a true success. Each bedroom is differently decorated, but they are all cosy and calm. The wellness room was much appreciated and so was the big garden right in the center of Bayeux. An ideally situated house, perfect for peace and as a starting point to discover the history of our Europe. I recommend Guillaume, a professional guide, for a complete day tour: he is extraordinary. The welcome is perfect, worthy of a five-star hotel but with the warmth and friendliness you won’t find there. It was hard to leave after a most pleasant week which goes by too quickly but gives unforgettable memories. We will surely come back !
