La Naomath
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I primarily chose this 'Chambres D'Hotes' for its location which fitted nicely with our itinerary of viewing as much as possible of the D-Day sites and museums. Easy to find and in a quiet rural location. The main house is a converted 210 year old Barn conversion with the guests suites within. Hosts Natalie and Fabrice ADAM are very friendly and hold good knowledge of surrounding areas, able to direct you into Bayeux and recommend good restaurants. The rooms were found to be clean and fresh and breakfast was much more than the expected 'Continental style. Juice, fruit, apple tart, bread and jams with tea / coffee. The private garden is beautiful and a lovely place to relax with a bottle or 2 of wine on a sunny evening. Vehicle parking is excellent with security electric gates. You have to pay a 30% deposit up front to secure your booking and the remainder is to be paid in cash. Delightful stay of three nights for myself and 2 motorcycle colleagues for 3 nights late July 2012. The hosts English may not be the best, but if youy can speak even a litlle French like me then there is no problem. Sadly the room did not have a kettle to make our own tea and coffee, but Natalie was more than happy to provide us with Flasks of boiling water. Highly recommended and I would stay again, most enjoyable, and value for money.

The hostess is named Natalie and she's very friendly. The family room is on the ground floor, and consists of a separate bathroom (no tub), living room with a couch and flat screen TV with a patio door that opens onto the front garden, and a separate bedroom that has two single beds and one double bed. The decor inside is immaculate, charming, tasteful, yet not cluttered. Breakfast was fresh and simple the next morning. Parking is inside her gated property, and wi-fi is free and strong. You'll definitely need a car if you want to stay here though, as it's about a 8 minute drive to Bayeux. You can't check in til 1800, so be aware as you make your way there. My family had a fantastic one night stay and it only cost us 80 euro, a fantastic value for what we were given. I actually told Natalie that you could easily charge a lot more!

We stayed here for two nights on a trip to Normandy. Our hostess was very freindly, and we managed with our sketchy french and her sketchy english - you have to try!
We were shown to our room, which unusually had no external window. Not too much of a problem, but surprising how much you miss one - just for ventilation if not a view of the weather! (The door was glazed, which opened onto to the hall which did have another glazed window - so there was some natural light available). The other thing was the en-suite was sperated by a wall, but no door - again a bit strange (i'm sure it could be easily solved and would make a big difference). There was another room available - which was larger and seemed very nice.
Saying that, the room was well decorated, and well presented. Great bed and everything was very clean.
Breakfast was included, and was fresh and simple and perfectly adequate.

Room Tip: Go for the biggest one!

We staid in La Naomath in August 2011 – a family with three teenagers.
I would like to advise you against this B&B. We have a very unpleasant experience there.
The hostess showed us every minute that she was unsatisfied with us as her paying guests:
..We didn’t speak French and wanted to see Bayeux.. but the hostess expects her gests to sit on the balcony and chat.
..We slept on sofa in the leaving room…
..Our towels are wet after we used them ….
..The roll of toilet paper run out too quickly in our room …
To short, everything was wrong with us from her point of view and she showed it every minute.
As I understand she keeps B&B not for business but for her own pleasure and doesn’t want to serve.
The culmination was in the last morning that we were not given the breakfast since we slept till 10 AM (!)
Please read it again: in the Bed & Breakfast we didn’t get breakfast.
We made a huge effort not give to the hostess to ruin our vacation. But our kids still remind her unpleasant behavior.

We stayed in the gîte of La Naomath and it was a great holiday! The gîte is well equiped, has a large living room, a private garden within the property of the B&B and a closed parking lot.
The owners are very friendly people who had put a bottle of home made cidre in the fridge on the day of our arrival.. they always how our day was and what we had visited and our 2 year old son was crazy about the dog!
If it is nice weather it is a very nice garden to relax and where the kids can play as it is completely closed.
The bedrooms are very nicely decorated, the bathroom is rather small but with a good shower. We also rented the towels so this was very convenient.

The gîte is also very well located near to the RN to Cherbourg, ideally to visit the landing beaches, St mére Eglise, Caen, Le Mont St Michèl...

It is also only a 5-min drive to the centre of Bayeux which is really lovely and you have a lot of supermarkets (a giant Le Clerc) But you do need a car to make the best of the holiday as in the immediate surroundings of the gîte there is nothing .. but this makes it a very quiet place to stay!

This B&B was very nice and in the country. I would not advise staying here unless you have a car at your disposal. It is very close to Bayeux and the beaches of Normandy as well as the city of Caen. The breakfast was very nice and the owners of the B&B were also very nice. There is free wi-fi and gated/secure parking. I would definitly stay here again, it is very nice.

We have now returned five times to the gite, La Naomath, in this wonderful part of France. The accommodation is rated 3* by Gites de France and has everything you need for a self catering holiday - easily fulfilled with the local markets, shops and hypermarkets in abundance. The location is a little outside Bayeux itelf but only 3 minutes from the main autoroute, and the tiny rural hamlet of Damigny is just so peaceful and relaxing. There are well tended and planted gardens around the premises with a private area for the gite. Car parking is very secure on site. The hosts are a wonderful family who run both the gite and the B&Bs themselves, and we are very proud to now call them our friends.
