My friend Sharon and I spent 4 nights at Hotel de Sainte Croix from September 22-26. When we arrived at the hotel, Florence welcomed us warmly. She showed us to our room called Josephine. It was a VERY large, wonderfully furnished room with 3 beds. We used one bed for our suitcases. The bathroom was also very large with two sinks and a great shower. Every aspect of Hotel de Sainte Croix was spotless.
The breakfasts that Florence prepared were among or perhaps the best that I have ever eaten. Bayeux is the apple region, so we had the most delicious baked apple, apple crumble, crepes, a creme fraiche with rhubarb, lemon sponge cake, cheeses, breads, etc. etc. served on beautiful china in a lovely dining room. One morning we spent an hour and half just visiting with several guests...one couple from northern England and one couple from Apple Valley, MN. We had such a wonderful visit and never felt that we were rushed to eat and leave.
Neither Sharon or I are proficient in French, but that did not present a problem for us. Florence was used to having non-french speaking guests.
Hotel de Sainte Croix is located just a short walking distance outside the city center...which we truly enjoyed. It was in a quieter and non-congested part of the city.
While in Bayeux, we took the Hotel Churchill tour to Mont Saint Michel, the Battlebus tour to the D-Day American Highlights, the cathedral, and the Tapestry Museum. All four of these sights are a "must" if you are in Bayeux.
NEVER, EVER will you find such an accomodation for 73 euros.
Thank you Florence for such wonderful memories.
