While we intended to stay in the city of Bayeux only to be near Omaha Beach, we fell in love with its charm.  Bayeux is an absolutely gorgeous hidden gem!

We loved the old buildings, the atmosphere, the food, the cafes, etc.  The Bayeux Cathedral is nice, but the relaxing town steals the show.  It is difficult to explain… as a family we felt good during the day walking around the town, we slept well at night, the air was fresh, the food was delicious… it was just wonderful.  It was while in Bayeux that we decided to extend our stay in France.
