We really enjoyed our stay at Studio Thiaumerie. Because the flat is in a courtyard, it is really peaceful even though it is on one of the main shopping streets. The studio had everything we needed with a comfortable bed and a modern bathroom with a really good shower and plenty of towels. It was cosy with a good heating system and plenty of natural light from the large windows. The wi-fi was very good and there are plenty of (French) channels on the tv. We cooked meals every evening and the kitchen area had everything we needed. The owners were lovely and really helpful. They showed us where we could park and gave us plenty of tips for our stay. The museum, cathedral and tapestry are all within a short walk. The fruit, vegetables, cheese and flowers at the Saturday morning market were great. There is a well-stocked supermarket a few metres away and a selection of boulangeries, including one opposite the front door. Rue Saint-Jean has plenty of interesting shops, including a great kitchen shop and maison de presse. This was our first visit to the area and we would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I enjoyed 4 nights in this neat little place. It is clean and very functional. The location is perfect which helped make our stay so nice. Michael met us upon arrival to explain everything. We would return given the opportunity

“central location”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Room was adequate for our 3 day stay in Bayeux. Location is right in the center of town and close to restaurants, convenient store, TI office, laundromat and anything else you might need. Bed was comfortable, bathroom is small . We had 3 towels for two people for 3 days. Small kitchen with a 2 burner stove, mini fridge and sink. Paid parking is very close
Owner if off site but does meet with you on initial contact

I'm a little disappointed at this review as there are quite a few inaccuracies in the description of the facilities. The bathroom is small but it does have a double sized shower and a full sized sink with two large storage drawers in it. There were in fact 2 more unused bath towels in the drawer in the bathroom that were pointed out at the time of arrival. The fridge and sink are both standard sizes, not "mini" and the kitchen area is 3 metres wide with one double and two single cupboards under the worktops - plain to see in all the photos. I believe we offer excellent value for money as the hotel less than 200 metres from our apartment which offers similar studio facilities charges FROM 145 euros per night, a full 60 euros per night more than ours.

“THIS IS A 10+!! ABSOLUTELY PERFECTLY PERFECT!!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our Hosts, Sally and Michael have thought of everything in furnishing this studio in style and comfort (I'm a Realtor!), from the full length mirror, to the heated towel rack in the bath, to the huge nouveau shower, and the large drawers beneath the sink for all my beauty products. The living area is ample with all kitchen amenities including coffee & tea and all the electronics. Oh, and the wifi was screaming most of the time so Tim & I could get our work in and get out and explore! ( And post our experiences and photos on social media!) Plus! I could go on and on and on as to the location and how cool it was entering our apt in between shops and amoungst restaurants and yet super quite and very private. AWESOME!! Sally & Michael were able to meet us at the train station and return us as well! Wonderful people-wonderful place.We cannot say enough and we cannot wait to return! ENJOY!!!

Lu was concerned that there were no reviews of our apartment when she booked. She subsequently realised this was because it is so new. Consequently I am delighted to see that she was clearly MORE than happy with her stay. We thought Lu and Tim were absolutely charming and clearly appreciated the help and advice that we gave them and reciprocated by leaving the Studio in the clean and tidy condition in which they found it. If, as Lu says, they intend to return we will be more than happy to welcome them back and share a glass of wine with them.

“Fantastic Apartment!”

We only booked Studio Thiaumerie because the 3 star hotel that we wanted was fully booked. And how lucky we were! It turns out that this apartment is virtually next door to that same hotel and I can’t imagine that they could have offered any more in the way of facilities and comfort and yet we paid literally half the price that we would have done in the hotel!! The apartment was light and airy with a very comfortable double bed and a nice sofa to relax on. The wifi was the fastest I have come across so far in my tour of France. There was a fully fitted out kitchen to self-cater but with so many great coffee shops and restaurants on our doorstep we didn’t even eat breakfast in the apartment! Best of all was the location. We were right in the middle of everything that’s happening in Bayeux and only a couple of minutes’ walk from the meeting place for both our tour of the D-Day beaches and if we’d wanted to use it, the bus to Mont St Michel. Despite its central location we were surprised at just how quiet the apartment was. We had a rental car because we had driven up from the Loire Valley and were heading on to Rouen and we never had any problems finding a space within a couple of minutes of the apartment, although we wished we had taken Sally’s advice and got rid of it for the 4 days that we were in Bayeux. We really didn’t need it. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Bayeux.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Studio Thiaumerie and its location. Interesting to see that you didn't use the self-catering facilities, so far none of our guests have bothered because of the wonderful central location and yet we just missed out on getting a 3 star accreditation because we "only" have a 2 ring hob and a microwave combi-oven (instead of a full-sized one). My guests enjoyment of their stay and their reviews are more important to me than anything though, so I'm glad you had such a good time and gave our apartment such a wonderful review.

The Studio Thiaumerie is perfectly setup, both in terms of inside comfort and especially in terms of location in Bayeux. It is newly renovated (apparently we were the first guests for Sally and Michael in this new recently purchased location – they also own another B&B near Bayeux).

The Studio Thiaumerie is nicely laid out, with cooking facilities and a great (new) shower. Even though the building is old (400 years), everything in the studio feels new.

But best of all is the location. You cannot be more centrally located in Bayeux. The Churchill Hotel is next door, as are the Information Centre and a grocery store. A laundromat is 5 minutes away. Yet the studio is very quiet, being back off the main street by a courtyard. Parking is very close and very convenient (and free overnight).

All in all, a great B&B experience.
