Col Chilcott B&B Bayeux

We are planning a trip to Normandy and have read many positive reviews of Col. Chilcott's B&B and D-Day tours and are interested in staying there.

Does anyone have any pictures or more detailed information about his property? The only images I can find just show the exteriors from a distance.

I would be very interested in hearing about any recent experiences and suggestions for the area.

Thanks!

Although we did not stay at his B&B last year, we did meet him there for his tour. I would term it rustic, but the dining area was certainly comfortable. The tour is fantastic. Four of us spent all day with Col. Chilcott, and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

My husband and I stayed there in June 2000, which may not meet your criterion of "recent." We loved the informal, rambling English-style residence. Our room and ensuite bath were huge. The Colonel's wife, Rosemary, was a wonderful hostess. The property is within walking distance of downtown Bayeux.. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. We didnot tour with the Colonel.

Could someone give me the address of this bed and breakfast. I think we will use this gentleman as a tour guide.

Thanks

I have not taken the tour nor seen the B&B but you may want to inquire about the price. If it is just for 2 it may seem very pricey according to what I have read on different boards.

en suite means the bathroom is part of the room rather than down the hall.

Another option in Normandy in the Ste Mere Eglise area (think Band of Brothers and the 4th ID at Utah Beach) is Philippe Cornil at http://www.lamaisondeshotes.com/.

We stayed there this past summer for the 60th anniversary. He really knows his stuff and is a honorary member of some of the Army groups in the US because of his support. He has 2 rooms at 45 euro in Ste Marie du MOnt.

This person Philip..you say he knows his stuff...did he do a tour with you or just advise you on places. My husband is so well read on this era that I think we will want a formal tour only once..but would love to stay where he could ask questions of someone..

is this hotel near the center..near restaurants?..I would assume we would be there a few days.

When we stayed there, the B&B was very inexpensive; the tours were pricey. Room rate on website is 45 Euro/double/night w breakfast. We toured on our own.

Oops, reference above is about the Chilcott's B&B. Rosemary, the Colonel's wife, is a lovely hostess.
