About the Property

Modern comfortable studio in 400 year old building in heart of Bayeux

Studio St Jean is a ground floor studio apartment for A MAXIMUM OF 2 people in a 400 year old building in the heart of the medieval town of Bayeux.

The studio has a full-sized double bed, a comfortable sofa, free wifi, a dining table with padded dining chairs, a fully fitted kitchen area with hob, sink, microwave and fridge with freezer compartment. There is also a brand new shower room/WC with extra large shower cubicle. The studio overlooks a private courtyard and there is a locked door to the main street.

Although the studio is on one of the main streets of Bayeux the double door entry means that you get no traffic noise from the street, just the occasional seagull to remind you that you are only 5 miles from the beach.

Rue St Jean is a pedestrianized zone during July and August and there is a weekly market on Wednesdays. On Saturday the main market is held in Place St Patrice, which is less than a 10 minutes walk. The UNESCO listed Bayeux tapestry is housed in a building less than 5 minutes walk away and the incredible medieval cathedral is a similar distance. You can pick up a shuttle bus to Mont St Michel or a D-Day tour bus less than 3 minutes from the studio and there are innumerable bars, cafés, restaurants and shops right outside your front door. There is a bike hire shop less than 50 yards away and the area around Bayeux is mostly flat. The railyway station is only a ten minute walk but we are happy to meet you off your train and take you to the studio by car for a small fee. In short, there is no real need to hire a car whilst you are in Bayeux but should you wish to do so, there is plenty of safe parking within less than 5 minutes of the studio.

The train from Paris takes 2 hours and there are frequent trains to Caen, which is only a 15 minute train journey.

We are happy to collect you from the train station on arrival.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Michael and I are an Anglo/Irish couple who grew up 20 miles north of London, where we worked for many years. We moved to Normandy in 2003 and ran an award-winning B&B for 13 years but recently saw the need for more short-term self-catering accommodation in the highly popular town of Bayeux.

Why the Owner Chose Bayeux, France:
Bayeux has always been one of our favourite towns so it was an easy decision to buy and renovate Studio St Jean in late 2014 when it came on the market. Since it's opening in May 2015 it has been full for 80% of the time, with some wonderful feedback from our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Studio St Jean is located in one of the oldest streets in Bayeux, right in the heart of all the shops, restaurants and bars, with a fantastic market every Wednesday morning. We love that it is right in the centre of everything and yet, because it has a closed entrance it is still as peaceful and quiet as if it were out in the country.
