My daughter and I stayed at the Villa Lara for four days last week and all I can say is it could not have been better! The lovely reception area, first class breakfast, spacious room, luxurious linens, and wonderful mattress were all so very nice to come home to after a long day in exploring the beauty and history Normandy....

This was our second visit to the Normandy area and our second stay at the Villa Lara. It deserves its new 5 star rating. The entire staff, especially Jessica, is inviting, friendly and helpful. Jessica gave us the same room as our last visit, noting that she remembered how much we liked the room during our first visit. Our room...

The room offers everything you need- lovely robes, amenities, safe etc. The staff was very helpful- especially Jessica. Nice lobby which offers a bar and a great breakfast set up. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel and look forward to...

We were excited to visit Normandy and learn more about the history of DDay and WWII. We were not disappointed. This hotel was one of the nicest in which we've ever stayed. Our room had a little balcony overlooking the Cathedral. The staff was fantastic and breakfast was delicious.

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
