This is a lovely small hotel, less than five years old. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We started each day with their typical European breakfast, which was very good. The security is also good as you can park in an interior courtyard using your room key for access. The staff is friendly and super efficient (and they all...

This lovely Hotel makes you appreciate the overall experience of small boutique hotels while traveling abroad. The entire staff was exceptional and helped me a lot. They make the time to get to know their guests and suggest wonderful options in Bayeux and Normandy. The Hotel is centrally located in the smaller town of Bayeux and located within walking distance...

If I could give the Villa Lara Hotel 10 stars I would. This hotel is by far the best place I have ever stayed. The hotel itself is gorgeous, just being inside it is a treat. It's warm and inviting, but truly elegant as well. We stayed in a room on the second floor that had a separate area for...

This review is long overdue. We were a family of 10 people who stayed at Villa Lara Hotel in July 2016 for 3 nights. Between all of us, we have travelled to many different destinations, and I have to say that this hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed at. From the ease of reservation to the...

My wife and I and our two-year old daughter stayed at the Villa Lara for three nights and could not have had a better experience. Before our stay, I corresponded by e-mail with Jessica and Ines to make sure they knew exactly what type of room we wanted (a suite with a separate living area) and that we would need...

We spent two nights at the Villa Lara this month as part of our Normandy tour. Accommodations and service were all excellent and really cannot find any aspects to improve. It was really a perfect stay.

We were delighted to find that a hotel with such great reviews was available at very short notice and to find that it does indeed deserve the praise heaped upon it by other reviewers. Every member of staff (and the owner) were faultless - friendly, helpful and cheerful. Nothing was too much trouble. The room (suite) was fantastic - loads...

This is a fantastic hotel in a great little town. Clean, spacious and modernly decorated rooms with every amenity one could desire. Close to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and things to see and do in the town.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Villa Lara is a small privately owned luxury boutique hotel with a chic but casual atmosphere in the historic center of Bayeux, along the Aure River in a very quiet square facing the 11th century majestic cathedral and just next door to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Our 28 rooms are appointed in an elegant French style with 8 different color schemes. All the furniture is made by Moissonnier, a well-known French company founded in 1885. Its cabinetmaking skills have been passed down generations, bringing the past to life with light touches, suggesting without imposing, breathing new life into traditions to make the present feel magical again, and creating jewelry for the hotel while cultivating an offbeat style-such is the spirit of Moissonnier today. All the rooms are accessible by lift and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, large flat-screen TV and safe. The marbled bathrooms have a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in most of the rooms. The rooms range from 30 to 50 square meters with a view on the Bayeux Cathedral. Beds are minimum 1.80 x 2 meters and in most of the rooms can be up to 2 x 2 meters. Wireless high speed internet access is free throughout the hotel, which features a cozy bar/lounge area with a fireplace and a library, a marbled lobby, and a breakfast room set in a traditional French style where the breakfast is prepared and served in front of the guest. Our complimentary fitness center is available 24/7 and equipment includes a treadmill, bicycle, and strength training machines. A private carpark is available with 15 spots and a drop-off space for buses. Although we meet the official government criteria of a 5-star property, we do not have a restaurant, a spa, and a formal bellman at the front door. We do not want to mislead our future guests who attribute these specific amenities to their image of a 5-star property, although we do of course provide porterage and turn down. And, as always, our commitment to 5-star service is at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. ... more   less
