      Historical Traveler Reviews Clos de Bellefontaine Bayeux

      Wonderful B&B in Bayeux

      from

      My husband and I took his 3 teenagers to Normandy for Spring break to see the D-Day beaches / memorials and Mont St Michel. We chose the Clos de Bellefontaine as a place to stay because it was in the town of Bayeux and we would be able to walk to restaurants, the cathedral, and the Bayeux tapestry. We were definately able to do all that and were impressed by the simple elegance and French country charm of the B&B all at a very affordable cost. There was plenty of room for a family of 5 in the 2 beautifully decorated large bedrooms each with private bath facilities. The owners are warm and friendly and served up a truly scrumptuous and authentic French continental breakfast in a pretty dining room with family pictures on the walls. We were enchanted by the sounds of the children in the kitchen while we dined on fresh yogurt and croissants. We unanimously agreed that we couldn't have stayed at a better place. We will recommend this lovely B&B to all our friends and family.

      FEELING AT HOME

      from

      We will long remember the warmth of the welcome at Clos de Bellefontaine, and the pleasure it gave us to meet your delightful children. Our breakfast was an experience we plan to repeat one day on a return visit, and wish you all the very best in your venture. - Sorry no pics to offer at the moment -- we were two couples, all pensioners, from Basingstoke and Reading in the south of England on our way through to Dinard. Bedsgt wishes, Kay and Tony Maslen, John and Ros Clinch.

      Wonderful B&B in Normandy

      from

      The Clos de Bellefontaine is a great place to stay while we were visiting Normandy. It is just a short drive to the historical sights, it is very quiet, the rooms are beautiful. The owners are wonderful.

      Excellent B&B, great location

      from

      We have just returned from a 1 month family holiday in France and Clos de Bellefontaine was one of the best B&Bs we stayed at. As we only had 2 nights in Normandy, it provided the perfect base so we could take in the town, tapestry, Mont St Michel and the D-Day beaches. We are 2 adults and 2 kids, so the double and twin rooms were ideal for us. Carole and Jerome are delightful and attentive hosts, providing us with all the guidance, maps and info we required plus providing us a restaurant recommendation that delivered one of the best dining experiences we had the whole stay. The portion of the house set aside for B&B is large, comfortable and charming and has an independent entrance. The breakfasts were sensational, and importantly for a long days sightseeing, sizeable. Recommend to all.

      A fantastic experience

      from

      You can't go wrong with the lovely Clos de Bellefontaine. Tucked along a small street behind stone walls and privacy gate, you'll find a quiet place to relax and unwind with Jerome and Carole. The rooms are large, very clean, and beautifully decorated. Carole makes a lovely breakfast each morning that is as much an event as it is a meal. The Clos de Bellefontaine was only a ten minute walk to the famous Bayeux tapestry and historical downtown Bayeux. The location was just far enough away to give you the peace and quiet you are looking for while being convenient enough for my 80 year old parents to walk to the sights and restaurants with no problem. You will also find most of the Normandy D-Day attractions within a 20-30 minutes drive given their easy access to the motorway. All in all, you definately can't go wrong with the Clos de Bellefontaine. I do highly recommend it and would make Jerome and Carole my first phone call when looking for reservations in Bayeux again.

      Highly recommended B&B

      from

      I stayed at this lovely B&B with my sister and we both found it delightful. The owners were welcoming and helpful and it is well situated in Bayeux within easy walking distance to all the main attractions, including the Tapestry. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms are pretty and very comfortable, and there is lots of information available in the house about the region, for people staying for some days. I will recommend this to friends going to Bayeux.

      A highlight of our vacation

      from

      We visited Bayeux as a get-away for Normandy during a vacation to England and France. We'd found the Clos de Bellefontaine on the Internet and both the town and the B&B turned out to be definite highlights of our entire trip. Our weekend in Bayeux coincided with a Medieval Festival in town that was simply wonderful in its period detail and costumes. The B&B is a short walk from everything in this picturesque town, including the Bayeux Tapestries. The rooms were gorgeous and the hospitality of Carole and Jerome was outstanding. And the breakfast, including fresh fruit tarts and exotic cheeses, was by far the best we had during the entire trip. We've stayed in a lot of B&Bs in western France, and this was at the top of the list.

      What a Great House !!!!!!

      from

      We each were celebrating our birthday (January 10) and decided to take a trip to Normandy and then Paris. We decided to look for a bed and breakfast instead of a hotel to get a true feelling of life in France.

      We researched the internet and discovered the "Clos de Bellefontaine" house in Bayeux and loved the photographs of the house and rooms and we felt that this would be a great place to stay, wander around Bayeux and it was a short scenic drive to the beaches of Normandy, which we wanted to explore.

      Not only was the house and accommodations extraordinary, the owners were extremely friendly, and their children adorable. We actually had half of their huge home as our lodging. The private entrance allowed our privacy. The downstairs study was welcoming and the winding staircase leading to our exceptionally huge bedroom was something out of a Dickens novel.

      Special touches were all abound. Scented sachets were placed on the radiators, which gave a welcoming smell when you arrived from outside. It was just so homey - you really didn't want to leave!

      Breakfast in the dining room was unbelievable... the fresh pastries, fruit and OH THAT YOGURT !!! The dining room was decorated in pink and white, with antique furniture and photographs of the Mallet's children. Speaking of the children, you never knew they were in the house! The Private entrance was a plus - along with the family cat!

      We will definately return and would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who wishes to vist Normandy and Bayeux.

      A Lovely Stay

      from

      My husband and I stayed for 3 lovely days in Bayeux over the 2005 Thanksgiving holiday taking advantage of the hospitality of Carole and Jerome MALLET at the Clos de Bellefontaine in Bayeux. It was our first experience in the French equivalent of a Bed & Breakfast and we very much enjoyed our time there and the company of our host and hostess. The accommodations were charming and comfortable, breakfasts delicious and Carole and Jerome were very helpful in suggesting restaurants, sites to see and te best routes to visit the Landing Beaches and other wonderful historical sites of the region. The Bayeux Tapestry is not to be missed!

      Wonderful B&B - Felt like home

      from

      We spent two nights at this B&B at the end of May 2006. Great location - walking distance to train station (even with luggage), the cathedral, tapestry, shops and restaurants. The owners, Jerome and Carol, were wonderful hosts. They served a delightful French breakfast and helped us with our sightseeing plans. There are only two guest rooms here so you are sure to get personalized service. Our room was large and comfortable, and impeccably clean.

From 1804 to 1961, the abbey buildings accommodated a prestigious high school, the Lycée Malherbe. During the Normandy ...

Long story short, when they finally scaled the cliffs and arrived at the spot, they found fake guns! The Germans knew they’d try to take out the guns so they hid them. By pure chance, a couple of the Rangers who had moved further inland to scout the area saw tracks in ...
