Great location, though difficult to find due to one way streets, etc. Nice quiet location, but we stayed in small building away from main house and had there been anyone there in the room above ours, or anyone using the little kitchen right next to our room, we would have heard every word and step. The rooms in the main house are probably much better, though we did not see them. The little garden is probably very nice in summer, but wasn't too inviting in October's wet conditions. We enjoyed all the animals. Breakfast was good, a bit more than the usual coffee and croissant, though I could not rave about it. Room was small, but comfortable, except for the very thin towels and only one apiece, in spite of our asking for additional. The owner and her children, who help her, were very nice and accommodating and Miriam was quite wonderful in helping us with planning our daily excursions and recommending the best things to see. She went out of her way to mark maps, tell us just where to park and how to see the most important sites, clearly very enthusiastic about the area and eager to help us. We found that made up for slight drawbacks to the B&B itself. One thing to be aware of is that the parking is not included with the lowest priced room, and it is not easy to find parking spots nearby. Also, it is a bit cumbersome because the staff needs to come out to open the gates to let you in and out and the area is very small, so if four cars are parked there, two are behind the other two - not sure how they work that. We were the only ones parking there, having upgraded our room. Miriam also gave us recommendations for restaurants, which were great, and you can easily walk to the cathedral, museums and Main Street, which was another plus for us. All in all a pleasant place to stay for the price, Miriam and her family being the biggest plus.

A very quaint B&B located an easy 5 minute walk on the same street as the Bayeux Tapestry Museum and the Cathedral. Miriam, the B&B's owner, is a delightful hostess who goes way out of her way to help you set off on the right path to visit the D-Day Beaches and/or any other of Normandy's sights. The breakfast was very good in a grand setting. We would DEFINITELY stay stay there again!

Myriam welcomed us even though our arrival was late in the evening and was very helpful to us in helping to plan our short stay in the area. The property is a good 5 min walk from the train station but a straight line and not a problem. We had worked hard on our French but were very relieved when we were able to talk in English. Breakfast was abundant and would stay there again.

My four day stay at the Aggarthi B&B was everything I had hoped for and much more. I had a totally delightful experience. It began with the Aggarthi being so easily accessible from the Bayeux train station. It was a short, delightful walk and the B&B was easy to find. The property was not fancy but charming and comfortable, just what I had expected. I stayed in the Tara room which was on the first floor. Everything was clean, especially the bathroom. The bed was comfy. Outside my room was a little courtyard with seating where I went to read usually before dinner. At the time of my stay, wifi was only available under a tent in the backyard, which worked fine for me. The garden was lovely. Coincidently, during my stay the owner was having wifi installed in all rooms, so any inconvenience I may have experienced will be totally eliminated. My plans included a car rental and it was easy and convenient to park my car each evening right in the courtyard. What made my stay extraordinary was the owner, Myriam. I had read about her prior to my selection and she was a key reason for my choice to stay at the Aggarthi. Myriam spoke good English and seemed to genuinely enjoy having guests. Not surprising, my purpose for visiting Bayeux was to tour Normandy and the many D-Day sites. Each morning, for three days, after breakfast Myriam would slowly and carefully map out the day for me, including colored coded directions from point to point and a numbering system she prepared directly on the maps she had provided. I followed her directions pretty much to the letter which made my adventures both easy and enjoyable. We’d de-brief the following morning after breakfast and set the course for the coming day. Myriam was very talkative but not at all intrusive. I found her stories about France, the area and her family to be entertaining and informative. Myriam's son, Pierre was also very helpful and attentive

The location, although central, is quiet and private with a lovely walled garden for guest use. The kitchen facilities were unexpected and useful.

The hotel was located right in the city centre in a quiet street. The rooms were spacious and had a very nice traditional feel to it. The public areas were a bit neglected, but since we either were visiting Bayeux or in our rooms, I don't consider that much of an issue. The owner was a bit arrogant though, and often interfered too much with what we were planning to do. On the other hand, the information she gave about what to visit was quite complete and she was helpful in telling us what was worth visiting.

Very friendly host - sent lots of info on booking even though not requested. Lengthy book-in procedure as she was so enthusiastic and thorough so that we got the most out of our stay. Unable to find initially as we arrived on medieval festival weekend and there were people and cars everywhere but she kindly sent her son to find us at the tourist bureau and he directed us to B & B. Found parking for us until a park was available at B & B. Have many pets on property which we didn't mind but if you have an aversion to dogs probably not the best spot for you (but they are little and well behaved and don't jump up unless encouraged). Decor in rooms could probably do with an update and there are left over building materials in places Bathroom spotless and large shower which we found rare elsewhere. Overall definitely recommend this property especially if you want the B & B welcome!

A very friendly welcome, giving good details about what is available in town. The location is only 100m or so from the Bayeaux Tapestry, and not much more to the centre of town. Nothing in town is more than a 15-20 minute walk away, and most much closer. The rooms are a little small especially for taller people, and angled as they are a loft, but are adequate unless you intend to spend hours in the room. Having arrived from the UK and Ireland where breakfasts are huge, this was a little small, being a Croissant and drink, but this just allows a choice of patisserie to indulge. Whilst the map showed you where the place was, narrow, blocked or one way streets made it a little difficult to get to - but far from impossible. Location has it all for this place, I would definitely return.

We found Myriam, family and menagerie of pets to be delightful. Our hostess was a font of information about the area. We found our 3 night stay a minimum to take full advantage of both the more recent (WW2) and ancient (tapestry) history of Bayeux Shared between 3 rooms is a cute country style kitchen (including 2 stovetops and fridge). The attic rooms have sloped ceilings. It should be noted we were upgraded to a larger attic room during our stay. Her friendly dogs, rabbits and piu-piu the pet chicken added to the enjoyment of our visit

We recently stayed at this bed and breakfast for three nights. The proprietor could not have been sweeter or more accommodating! She gave us TONS of specific information about what to see and where to eat in the area. The building is very old and quaint and very well maintained and the outdoor garden area is lovely. The B and B is less than three blocks from a giant church that was built in 1170 (!!!) and two blocks from the must-see tapestry museum. Many restaurants, bars and shops within very easy waling distance. I highly recommend staying here.

After reserving a room for three nights, with a guaranteed late arrival, we got in about 10 pm. Despite the claim of air conditioning, there was none. I took a shower, but failed to realize that the past several guests had left a bunch of hair in the drain, Soon the shower stall overflowed (we had been traveling from Berlin all day) and the bathroom became flooded. We called the staff and the hair was removed and the water cleaned up. Then the woman who owned the place showed up and went wild. Called us crazy for allowing that to happen. She demanded full payment in cash for three nights, E240, even though we had reserved the room on American Express (I rarely carry that much cash with me but did have it). I told her we would only stay two nights, but she wanted three nights in advance, "or we could get our luggage and get out." It was then close to midnight. Her staff had also quoted us a price of 11 euros to wash some clothing and gave us a laundry bag. We filled it, and the next morning the woman demanded 33 euros for the laundry, "as it was a big bag." This was her response to showing her the email she wrote us quoting a price of 75 euros a night, rather than the 80 euros she demanded now. All in all it was a miserable experience, and when on the road, in a foreign country, our options are limited. We paid the extra money, left early and will never return.

It was very cold with a stone floor and no rugs.It was very dark and dreary.The centre light fitting was hanging off the ceiling.One of the bedside lights didn't work.There was dog mess on the patio area we had to walk across to get to the tiny breakfast room.Breakfast was adequate but only one cup of coffee was given.We had to pay for the accommodation as soon as we had arrived. We read such great reviews of the place that although we thought it expensive at 75 Euros we decided that it would be worth it. We were very disappointed.We expected much more. However, Bayeux did not disappoint.A lovely peaceful city full of charm.We saw plenty of it as our room was so uninviting that we did not feel like spending more time than necessary in it.

This is a well priced, conveniently located B&B just a few blocks stroll from all the major sites of Bayeux. The host starts by giving you a map and highlighting how to gt to the sites, the roads to the Beaches and a few good restuarants in town. Breakfast is served outside in the sun (weather permitting). It was a wonderful start to each of the three days we stayed here. The grounds come complete with friendly dogs, cats and even a rabbit or two. The building is still a work in progress but all the key essential were there and worked well. I think this adds to its charm. We look forward to returning on a future visit to the area.

We stayed at the Aggarthi B&B for 4 days -- at first we didn't quite know what to expect behind that closed white door, but when it opened, there was Miriam, friendly and helpful as can be -- truly a sweetheart. The room was in the "new wing" and wasn't completely finished (no table or TV) but it was big, the beds were comfy, the bathroom had a brand new shower and Miriam made sure there were clean linens every day. One of the best parts was that she allowed guests to use the fridge and appliances in the breakfast room to store stuff and make tea or coffee at their leisure. When we got tired of paying 5 euros each for a single cup of hot tea in the cafes, the kettle and fridge were most welcome. Miriam herself was so helpful -- she had suggestions and gave valuable info about getting to and from places. I considered her a friend when we left! The other thing is that the B&B is only one block from the famous Bayeux Tapestry, a few block walk to the ancient cathedral and a 20 minute drive to the Normandy D-Day beaches.

Our hostess was very welcoming. As we signed in she had some good input on battle field touring. Had her daughter drive me to the Hertz location to pick up our rental car. A four seat breakfast table in reception with just four seats. But she is very good at scheduling it, taking orders and times the night before.

Chose this B+B having read several complimentary reviews regarding this property. The location is excellent right in the centre of Bayeux,close to train station, Bayeux Tapestry museum,Cathedral and many good restaurants. Madame Myriam was most helpful re D Day Tours, walks, sightseeing, restaurants etc. Our room was in the attic, spacious, bright and airy with a good sized en-suite. Small kitchen downstairs where guests are served continental breakfast. Guests have access to courtyard and garden. We enjoyed our short stay there, and would recommend it to other travellers.

Our hostess was very welcoming and friendly. We loved her 3 dogs and the location was perfect for seeing the town and close to the Tapestry. She is very good at offering suggestions for places to go and restaurants. The room upstairs was cute, but because of the angles of the ceiling would be difficult for someone who is tall. Also, if you like to sleep late it is not quiet when the other guests are having breakfast. It is perfect for a one or two night stay, and a good value. She served the best fresh croisants for breakfast, but my main complaint was that if she has a full house there is not enough room for everyone to sit at the table. Our 2nd morning there we were rushed out by our hostess so that others could sit.

Having just spent 4 nights in Paris, it was a wonderful change to stay in a B&B with this level of service. Mme Miriam was fabulous hostess, and the rooms were quite large (for French standards) and very new. Mme Miriam, took the time to present several restaurants & menus to us (including telling us which ones were closed that evening). Breakfast was the traditional croissants and coffee served at the time of our choosing. Knowing we only had one day to tour the sights (and I hadn't done all my homework), Mme Miriam laid out a wonderful tour of the Normandy Invasion Museums and sights! We followed her suggestions, and they were excellent! Overall our stay was wonderful, and the service EXCELLENT!

I booked a double and was given an attic-style room with severely slopped cielings. It felt somewhat claustrophobic however it was clean and the bathroom was big enough. The owner is very knowledgable and told us where to eat, where to find ATMs, etc. She was more than willing to help in any way she could. Also a complete breakfast was included with the room which was great. It's a very small bed and breakfast but it's perfect if you're in town for a few days visiting Normandy Beach.

When my husband was not able to travel with me, I contacted my sister, who was able to take his place. So this report is written by Jeanne Quinn. We had the most wonderful experience at the Aggarthi B&B! It could not have been better. I'm almost afraid to tell others of this amazing gem in Bayeux for fear that we will not be able to get a room next year when I hope to return with my husband. The owner is the perfect hostess. When she recommends a restaurant, be sure to listen. You will not be disappointed. She will map out places of interest and privide excellent directions. The location of the B&B allows you to walk to all the sights in Bayeux. Two blocks away is the famous Bayeux tapestry, yet the B&B is so secluded behind an ancient wooden gate with a quiet courtyard and garden that you would never know that are are right in the center of the town. Also, you are just a few miles from the Normandy landing beaches and other Normandy sights. Another plus is that the train station for a two-hour trip to Paris is within walking distance (seniors, be sure to get the senior train rate). My sister and I dropped our car off at Hertz in Bayeux on the last day and took the train to Paris for the rest of our French trip. As for the accommadations at Aggarthi, the room and bath were bigger than expected and very clean and nicely furnished. Even the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was the usual French bread, croissant, orange juice, and coffee; but, the homemade jam from the owner's pear & plum trees was out of this world. I only wish we could have brought some home. If I figure out how to send pictures , I will do so. I loved this place.

Our stay with Madame Aggarthi was lovely. Located in the centre of town, behind imposing wooden gates, we weren't sure we had the right place when we arrived. But then Mdm Aggarthi opened the large gates with a friendly smile and ushered us into a beautiful country cottage courtyard. It's like Narnia. We were shown to our compact but well laid-out room (with en suite). The rooms are in a separate block to Madame Aggarthi's residence, so you don't feel as though you are intruding. It's easy to relax. Our host took her time talking to us, judging our level of French (which she had obviously realised we wanted to practice) and talking at the appropriate speed (she dipped into English when necessary). She recommended restaurants (you'd do well to take her advice) and offered to help plan our stay. All in all, it was ace.

Once we got her attention, Mme Aggarthi was wonderfully helpful and welcoming. The first morning she had taken the day off and her daughter just put out the food. The second morning, Mme Aggarthi mistook a French couple's golf bags for ours and therefore offered none of the conversation or planning help this B&B is famous for. By the second afternoon, we had communicated and got all the friendly, detailed advice we'd missed and more, including a fantastic restaurant reservation, so our hint: Don't be shy; explain what you want. Moreover, they're originally from Paris, and we followed her generously detailed explanation of things to do around our rental apartment there, too. We'd go back to Aggarthi in a minute! By the way, directions on Venere are sketchy and we spent 45 minutes finding the B&B the first time!

We stayed only one night at B&B Aggarthi, and I'm sorry that we couldn't stay longer. The owner--I believe her name is Miriam--was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The breakfast included excellent coffee, juice, bread, pastries, and homemade jam. Our room and bathroom were spotless and tastefully decorated. Parking was free, inside the gated yard. The guest rooms are in a separate building from the main house. There's a small kitchen on the first floor of this building where breakfast is served. I believe that one of the guest rooms opens directly into this kitchen, so be warned that you may be awakened by other guests if you like to sleep late. Everything was otherwise perfect and an excellent value.

Very nice people. Very well placed hotel, at 5mn walk from the famous tapestry, in the center of Bayeux. We recommend this 'Bed and Breakfast'. The room we had was small, we were told it's the smallest one. The window was opening on the street so it was a bit noisy. There was no room to park our car inside, I think we can hardly park 2 cars there ; there were works in the main house and the parking place was occupied by the workers. We could find parking place in the street.

Il B&B è molto accogliente. Si trova al centro di Bayeux, vicino a tutte le attrazioni turistiche ed è un posto molto calmo e rilassante.I propietari sono molto cortesi e gentili. Camere spaziose e confortevoli, con una certa cura nel dettaglio. In generale ci siamo trovati molto bene e la sig.ra Miriam molto gentilmente mi ha realizzato un itinerario "su misura" per visitare le spiagge dello sbarco ottimizzando i tempi di trasferimento. Questo B&B è un'ottima base per la visita dei luoghi del D-DAY. Inoltre ci è stata molto d'aiuto per un problema con il noleggio auto. Se fosse stato bel tempo avremmo fatto la colazione nel giardino. Inoltre i propietari hanno simpatia per gli italiani.

We stayed in Bayeux for 2 nights and found the location of the Aggarthi perfect with just a short walk into town. It is easy access to the train station and close to the famous Tapestry and Cathedral. The owners are very obliging and helpful. There are three rooms, one downstairs and two upstairs with a shared kitchen downstairs and this could have the potential to be noisey for the downstairs room however we did not have any problems. We enjoyed the stay and would go back.
