Villa Lara is just a gem. The rooms have space; everything is immaculate. But it’s the warmth of the staff that puts this place at the top. They are friendly and help you out with a smile on their faces. They helped us switch train...More

We stayed at Villa Lara for four nights while touring Normandy. Every aspect of the hotel was wonderful. The building is relatively new. The owner took great care to design charming, comfortable, welcoming, modern spaces. The staff was ultra-attentive, friendly and efficient. They know Bayeux...More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Lara for 2 nights and it was fantastic. The location is great with beautiful view of the Bayeux Cathedral (circa 1050) from our suite. Everyone we interacted with at the hotel was so incredibly friendly, kind, and accommodating!...More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

We tipped each person individually at the front desk who helped us with reservations, etc. To the housekeeper, we left 10E on check-out day. (We had previously left a daily tip in the room, which she didn't pick up.)
