The Experience

Wander the dreamy, 18th-century gardens; swim in the pool beneath the cathedral’s gaze. Beyond the tall wrought-iron gates, you enter the cobbled ‘cour d’honneur’ of an architectural gem, with panelled rooms, parquet étoile floors, and a curved suspended staircase, one of two in France. Anthony, with impeccable English, happily shares the history with guests.

Five serene bedrooms are joined by six new apartments in a recently acquired wing. Wake to birdsong…and look forward to breakfast, at an elegant table dressed in white linen. On a fine day, you may eat on the garden terrace.

Little Bayeux, remarkably untouched, is a treat to wander. Everything is virtually on your doorstep, from the Bayeux Tapestry to Saturday’s market (special for foodies). A visit to Musée Mémorial Bataille de Normandie is a further inspiration; Omaha Landing Beach is a 25-minute drive.

The Tardif is sophisticated, small and personal. The beautiful flower filled garden is such a wonderful surprise in the heart of bustling Bayeux, as is the swimming pool with a fabulous view of the cathedral. A real gem!

The neighbourhood

The Tardif is a gem in the heart of Bayeux, 200m from the entrance to the cathedral, and 300m from the Bayeux Tapestry Museum. There are neighbouring properties but because of the walled garden, you really don't notice them. Wander the cobbled streets - don't miss Rue des Cuisiniers - and enjoy the restaurants, boutiques and bars. Stop off for a break at the exquisite Confiserie Reine Mathilde, for excellent teas and patisserie.

Local points of interest from Anthony Voidie

  • Located 100m away from the famous Tapisserie de Bayeux and the Cathédrale Notre Dame. The British cemetery and the Sunday market are only 500m away!


Anthony Voidie

Nothing is too much trouble for Anthony, who is as friendly and as solicitous as his team. Having run the hotel with his mother for many years, he is now spending more time renovating the existing rooms, and developing further guest space.
