Where would be a good place to stop for one night in the Normandy region ? Bayed or aromanches ?
We like Bayeux very much. Small, charming town. We've stayed at Hotel d'Argouges many times, love it.
I was about to say the same thing as Susan. Bayeux is a great town and the hotel D'Argouges is wonderful!
I'd also suggest Bayeux as it's not only a fairly central location, but also a beautiful smaller town with some wonderful hotels and restaurants. However which town to stay in will probably depend on what you want to do or see in that area.
Ditto on Hotel D'Argouges. Plus, it has parking which is difficult to find in Bayeux. All WWII sites are within an hour of the city.
I agree - Bayeux is perfectly located and I can also vouch for the Hôtel d'Argouges
We DID stay several nights in Arromanches in a little family B&B (Le Mulberry) and did our car touring from there, including a morning at the Bayeux Tapestry. If you only have one night and are taking a tour, Bayeux might be a better choice for convenience.
If you don't need to be in a town, we stayed at a B&B called Les Divettes Omaha Beach. It is in Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes, about 20 min from Bayeux, 20 min from arromanches-les-bains. It is a beautiful B&B. After 7 weeks in Italy,France and England, all four of us (2 adults and 2 kids), still talk about this being our favourite accommodation. Breakfast is simple but delicious - Homemade bread and brioche with a variety of homemade jams, tea/coffee and juice. Cant recommend highly enough.
Wintersbs: Ditto for Bayeux and the Hotel d'Argouges. Visited last fall and stayed at the hotel several nights. Recommend you check out restaurant ratings on Trip Advisor as the reviews will be current and reflect any late-breaking developments (construction across the street or remodeling efforts). Definitely visit the Bayeux Tapestry. It can be done in less than one hour. Good luck and safe travels,
Can anyone comment on what you thought of Hotel le Mulberry in Aromanches? Thank you!
