We loved everything about Maison Mertens. The house was truly beautiful, and decorated in a stylish, classical, French way. It is situated in a great position in the heart of Bayeaux so we could walk everywhere. Our bedroom was absolutely gorgeous and everything about it was comfortable. Kathy was a gracious, generous host who went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and every morning I looked forward to the special little treats that Kathy had prepared for us. By the time we left, I was actually quite sad leaving Kathy and Maison Mertens. Hopefully we'll see Kathy in South Africa some time.

We found this hidden treasure by chance. The owner Kathy is a Vermont transplant who has lived in France for 30 years and now speaks better French than English. She is an artist and designer as well as a baker and chef. Her husband is French and an electronic systems specialist who set up the lights and internet in this repurposed and tastefully 14th Century home. There are only two rooms but what rooms they are! High ceilings with a king sized bed you never want to leave. Breakfasts are freshly baked croissants, rolls and bread, with fresh squeezed orange juice and fruit, with always another delightful surprise. The home is hard to find as it has no sign outside, only the house number 2. You need to trust your GPS when it tells you that you have arrived. There will be a large black door and a doorbell. After you are admitted into the courtyard you will move your car down the alley like street to find a parking spot along a public park, which is a very short walk. Parking is free and you won’t need your car to walking into town to shop or eat at the wonderful restaurants. You’ll need your car only to visit the famous Bayeux tapestry and the Normandy D-Day beaches. This place is fully five stars.

We stayed here after another booking cancelled after a family emergency. The host was delightful, and made our stay very pleasant. The room was huge and decorated in a classic french vibe. It also had a nice sitting area. It is rare for me to sleep well at most hotels, but not here. Bed and comforter were top notch. Host speaks fluent english to help with any ressies and such. Rooms are on a walkup on a winding staircase. Simple breakfast is served in a modern kitchen. Ample breads, croissants, fruits, jams are available. Only gripe was water pressure is on the low side and hot water mechanism took a minute to figure out. Would definitely stay here again
