This hotel is in the heart of Bayeux. The Bayeux Tapestry is almost next door. The town is charming. The hotel is very clean and well located. Our room was on the 3rd floor near the elevator. It was quiet and well appointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. No complaints of any kind.

We enjoyed our stay here enormously. The staff was very warm and welcoming and asked if we would be interested in an upgraded room for a modest cost per night. We definitely made the right decision, it was a beautifully appointed room with a balcony in the front of the hotel. We definitely felt pampered and appreciated. We wanted to...

We stayed at the Villa Lara for 5 nights while touring the beaches of Normandy and learning of the D-Day invasion. Taking guided tours which described the horror and the inspiration of the beach landings and the subsequent death and destruction as the battle moved inland, were sad, and moving. So we were grateful to return to the warm haven...

Villa Lara is a very charming and gorgeous hotel. The rooms are large, beautifully furnished with the finest bed linens. It was the best hotel we stayed at during our England/France trip. But it was the staff that made this an outstanding hotel...they were so helpful, provided directions and restaurant recommendations and were always there to assist us. The location...

This hotel was amazing! Situated in quaint historical part of Bayeux near the Cathedral. Great restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. We only spent two nights and I wished we had stayed longer. I can't wait to go back. A small, intimate property. A little more expensive but totally worth it.

From our first step in the door, Villa Lara was pure comfort and delight. Concierge Jessica thoughtfully noticed our 4-night stay and suggested a small suite, which gave us extra space for breakfast overlooking the square. Every staff member met our requests with grace and charm. The location is on a quiet square, but convenient to museums, cathedral, and restaurants....

We arrived at Villa Lara after our 10 hour car trip from South West France. The hotel is superior. It's clean and charming. Staff was exceptionally professional. Beds/linens were comfortable! Bayeaux is perfect base for visiting D Day sites. Our only regret was not staying longer.

First, this hotel is fabulous. The furnishings are beautiful..... the rooms are well-appointed and come with modern showers. Second, the breakfast was delicious. We were only in Bayeux overnight on our visit to the Normandy beaches.... wish we had more time to stay at this hotel in a lovely town.

We spent two nights at Villa Lara. We had heard wonderful things about this hotel and it did not disappoint. Lovely furnishing throughout the hotel and our room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Villa Lara is a small privately owned luxury boutique hotel with a chic but casual atmosphere in the historic center of Bayeux, along the Aure River in a very quiet square facing the 11th century majestic cathedral and just next door to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Our 28 rooms are appointed in an elegant French style with 8 different color schemes. All the furniture is made by Moissonnier, a well-known French company founded in 1885. Its cabinetmaking skills have been passed down generations, bringing the past to life with light touches, suggesting without imposing, breathing new life into traditions to make the present feel magical again, and creating jewelry for the hotel while cultivating an offbeat style-such is the spirit of Moissonnier today. All the rooms are accessible by lift and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, large flat-screen TV and safe. The marbled bathrooms have a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in most of the rooms. The rooms range from 30 to 50 square meters with a view on the Bayeux Cathedral. Beds are minimum 1.80 x 2 meters and in most of the rooms can be up to 2 x 2 meters. Wireless high speed internet access is free throughout the hotel, which features a cozy bar/lounge area with a fireplace and a library, a marbled lobby, and a breakfast room set in a traditional French style where the breakfast is prepared and served in front of the guest. Our complimentary fitness center is available 24/7 and equipment includes a treadmill, bicycle, and strength training machines. A private carpark is available with 15 spots and a drop-off space for buses. Although we meet the official government criteria of a 5-star property, we do not have a restaurant, a spa, and a formal bellman at the front door. We do not want to mislead our future guests who attribute these specific amenities to their image of a 5-star property, although we do of course provide porterage and turn down. And, as always, our commitment to 5-star service is at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. ... more   less
