Accommodation in Bayeux
Normandy has a huge variety of accommodation that will suit every taste - camp sites, gites, rustic farmhouses, self catering apartments, stone castles, beautiful manor houses, B&Bs and budget hotels right through to top range hotels with all mod cons.
Your first decision requires that you choose the right area to stay in for the tour you are intending to do. Your second decision will be dictated by your means of transportation.
Basically speaking, if you are arriving into Normandy by train you should think about staying in either Caen or Bayeux. Staying outside of either Caen or Bayeux without transportation will mean you have to rely on over-priced taxis or being 'confined to barracks' in your immediate area. Caen is best for touring the British and Canadian areas. Bayeux is most suitable for the US area. If you are arriving into Normandy by ferry (Caen), particularly without a car, you should either stay in Ouistreham (which is where the Caen ferry docks) or in Caen itself. Pegasus Battlefield Tours can offer 10% discount on all Brittany Ferries crossings to our clients so please let us know whether you require this when making your booking.
On the other hand, if you are arriving with your own vehicle then your options are immense. The choice is wide and varied and there are some amazing places to stay in Normandy that will make your stay very special and never to be forgotten. Indeed, we have worked alongside some very good friends for nearly ten years now and we can offer accommodation and touring packages in a 15th century fortified manor house just a few miles behind Omaha Beach and just 6 miles outside Bayeux - more details here. However, there are many more choices and our other recommendations are below.
