Tourism in Bayeux

Discover the capital of the Bessin district from the hotel

The nostalgic charm of the capital of the Bessin district is the result of an extraordinary heritage that has been miraculously preserved. The history of Bayeux is closely tied to two conquests – the 1066 conquest of England by the Normans, and the 1944 Allied invasion of the beaches of Normandy that saw Bayeux the first town in France to be liberated.

Through their eyes

  • "Charmingly Delightful Hotel"

    Hotel Villa Lara is the most wonderful hotel. The staff goes above & beyond to make your stay with them both special & unforgettable. A perfect location with beautiful, comfortable rooms with all the amenities. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Normandy. Five star plus!

  • "Superb Hotel"

    Exception service and accommodations. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and assisted at every turn by the marvelous staff. Last minute dinner reservations were no problem. We enjoyed the comfort and appointments of our room with a view of the abbey. A great location to explore Normand
