“Interesting and unusual experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

It's odd to be writing the very first review of an accommodation but here goes! We know Bayeux well and were intrigued when the name of a place we didn't recognise popped up when researching a short Easter break recently. On further investigation we found it was a new apartment complex in an excellent location but with an interesting twist: it's a retirement home for senior citizens which uses 15 rental apartments to help fund their operation.

Hmmm, we thought. Looks nice in the pictures but surely this would all be a bit odd? In the end we decided to give it a go and what a good decision that was.

It is almost everything you could expect from a modern holiday apartment location. A lot of money was spent on building the complex to a very high standard for both residents and visitors alike. We were given a tour of the facilities which include a restaurant, cafe bar, small swimming pool and gym before being shown to our apartment. This comprised a spacious living area with cooking facilities, a large double bedroom and bathroom.

The location is superb. It is beside a large hypermarché on the ring road that circles Bayeux but it is just a leisurely 15 minutes walk from the town centre. Less than 5 minutes walk away you will find the very moving British Cemetery and one of the leading WW2 museums in the region.

Minor quibbles would be a problematic Wifi service and a poor supply of kitchenware. The gates to the complex close very early in the evening but you are provided with an access bipper and code so you get used to this.

So was it odd? Yes, a little to be honest but not so much as to make any great difference. We enjoyed our stay at Domitys and will certainly consider it again the next time we are in the region.
