“Something special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The hotel is immaculate ... Beautifully decorated with such attention to detail. The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay extra special. They even opened the restaurant early for breakfast as we needed to leave early morning. Highly recommended ... Private secure car-park, great view of the cathedral, in the centre of Bayeux and convenient to get around.

Great room and service! Great location. Couple little things though, breakfast should be included at these prices, $18 euros per person is a bit extreme. Adding conditioner to the bathroom would be nice too. Otherwise, a near perfect stay! Would stay again.

Hands down, the Villa Lara is the nicest hotel we have ever stayed -- and we travel a lot! My husband and I, and our daughter, son-in-law, and two teenage grandchildren stayed four nights in early October -- FABULOUS!! We cannot say enough about the entire hotel, amenities, staff, and location. The rooms and bathrooms are large; there are an abundance of electrical outlets to recharge phones and cameras; beds and pillows are so comfortable; towels and robes are large and fluffy; great Wi-Fi; room refrigerator was refilled every day with complimentary bottled water, Perrier, and soft drinks; delicious gourmet breakfasts were impeccably served; and all the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were sad when our lovely visit to Bayeux and the Normandy Beaches was over. Thank you Rima, Jessica and Alexandre :-) We will be back!!!Also, we booked the Churchill Hotel Shuttle to Mont Saint-Michel and highly recommend this day trip.

Room Tip: Our family was in two rooms on the troisième étage (4th floor) facing the beautiful Bayeux Cathedral...

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Normandy. Hotel staff is very lovely and helpful. Parking is free. Room was very nicely decorated. Hotel does not have restaurant for evening meal and no room service on Monday night. Highly recommend as place to stay in historic Bayeux and as a place to visit WW II sites.

I don't give five stars very often, but in the case of the Villa Lara in Bayeux it is most deserved. From exceptional service (really exceptional) to the rooms, breakfast, drinks at the end of an interesting day touring Normandy, help with restaurant reservations each evening, and a great location, this is a special place. Owners Rema and Francoise and glorious hosts. Smiles every morning. Always willing and prepared to help with any request. All other small hotels should and can learn from the Villa Lara. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Try a junior suite.

We stayed at the Villa Lara for 2 nights in October 2013. Despite the pouring rain, we had a wonderful stay. It's nice to come back from a day of sightseeing in the rain and find a fire burning in the cozy bar/lobby. Our room was spacious and had most comfortable chairs with nice tall windows overlooking a green area. Bayeaux is such an old village in France and the atmosphere at Villa Lara is an added part of the experience of being in an old part of France. The bathroom was elegant and luxurious. The other guests were very nice as were the employees. The staff were very helpful with information.
I will visit again.
