Le Clos de la Barre
Ranked #1 of 3 Basly B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Only stayed 1 night on our way back to the ferry after travelling a week around Normandy. Was amazed by the size of 'The Loft' - the 30 steps to the top is worthwhile for the accommodation that if on offer! King size bed, a twin room and huge living area including kitchen and dining room, 2 toilets and a fantastic shower room. Really comfortable night's sleep and wonderful breakfast next morning. Only 20 minutes from the ferry and really good location for people wishing to visit the war graves. Host has excellent English and helpful with a good sense of humour.

Stayed here in July of '11 for three nights with my older son while we toured Normandy. Alain and his wife were most gracious. The accomodations were excellent. We stayed in the Rose room, which was very spacious, with a very large bathroom/shower/tub. Alain was very helpful with suggestions for our touring of the Normandy beaches and landing sites, and gave us maps to complement our GPS. He also made dinner reservations for us in a nearby coastal town after our long journey to the B&B, which was most appreciated. We loved our stay, and I plan to return in the Summer of '12 with my wife and both sons to tour the sites again, then continue on to London for the Olympics. Highly recommend staying here for a great value, friendly ownership, clean and comfortable accomodations, and beautiful surroundings. And if you speak English only, Alain and his wife speak perfect english, so you have nothing to worry about :-)

Room Tip: The Rose room is perfect for a family of 4.

Stayed here with my partner, and another couple in July 2011 and it was just the perfect venue for a weekend getaway, with the added bonus of being affordable. Stayed in the Orchid room which is beautifully decorated and spacious. Our friends stayed in a smaller room (Poppy) which overlooks the flowery garden. Breakfast, although very continental was served in the dining room, with Alain as a great host. He is very knowledgeable on the area's local history and WWII sites. It is a must visit B&B that will not disappoint!!!

We stayed 2 nights at Le Clos de la Barre. It is in the small town of Basly but is very close to many of the World War II memorials and cemeteries, and to the Canadian museum at Juno Beach. The hosts, Alain and Francoise, were very welcoming and helpful, and provided excellent suggestions on what to see and do in the area. The accommodation was extremely spacious, clean, and comfortable - we were in the Rose suite, which was fantastic. Breakfasts were very good and are provided in a very large and beautiful sitting and dining room, which is made even better by the display of much of Francoise's paintings and sculpting. We highly recommend this B&B. The website is www.calvadosbnb.com.
