Bayeux an excellent jumping off point to tour nearby historic WWII sites. It was easy to see why historians, tourist and World War II veterans from all over the world come.
I loved walking through this quiet town of charming stone houses with gorgeous window flower boxes.
We stopped for lunch at Le Garde Manger, it had a cheerful lawn area with colorful chairs. It was a sweet place to relax and have a chat.
Too bad we already had lunch because this street fair dish looked amazing.
One afternoon I took a break and walked along Bayeux’s canal. Even though Bayeux is a town central to visiting Normandy it wasn’t overrun with tourists and the walk along the canal was peaceful and picturesque.
No one was in sight when I came across this old and picture perfect waterwheel on the Aure River.
I have to mention our lovely B&B La Villa. It was located in the heart of town and close to everything. Our hostess, Estee was amazing; she and her family live on the main floor. Guest Rooms were on 2nd and 3rd. Each morning we sat down to a table filled with fresh fruit, yogurt, a variety of breads, jams, cheeses, and hard boiled eggs.
