About Dawn Petts
CORONA VIRUS UPDATE We are closed as we live in UK and at present cannot travel. We hope to travel to France in June. Then the apartment should be fully operational throughout summer months. We are a retired couple who have been living in/visiting Normandy for many years. Jean is French native having been born in St Lo and we met in Derbyshire in 1988. Our permanent home is in Derbyshire but we spend probably half of our time near to Bayeux. I am a retired Secondary school Head of Department and Mother to 6 boys, a family which includes 2 sets of twins. Jean is a widower, a retired University Lecturer, and linguist. Jean has 3 children, all successful business people. We are keen caravanners. I love my gardening, DIY, sewing and when I have time knitting too. Jean is at present learning Spanish, as we enjoy winter holidays in Spain and the Canaries. We look forward to further future travel.
Dawn Petts purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Dawn Petts chose Bayeux
We went into the local notaire, and saw a very dull picture of the apartment. It was the location - next door neighbour to William the Conqueror's' vast and impressive cathedral, that really made us buy it. Certainly not the appalling state it was in when we purchased! We realised that to do the job properly we would have to employ someone locally who could envisage from conception to reality exactly what could be achieved with the internal space available. This meant massive alterations, and at one point no internal walls were left standing. Parking is no problem, as just up rue de jurisdiction opposite the apartment, is a large square called place de Charles de gaulle, where parking is free, safe and shaded. On arrival it is easy to offload luggage right outside the apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Right outside your door is the cathedral (no bells except on Sunday for services + for weddings/funerals). The area is quiet, and cobbled and picturesque. The bakers, boutiques and glorious selection of restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. Pop out first thing for your hot croissants. Stroll to view the tapestry, the various museums, the English war cemetery within easy walking distance. The supermarket E l'eclerc is 10 minutes walk away, so cooking in the small but modern kitchen is not a problem. On days for travelling further afield try Arromanche, Deauville, Trouville, the beautiful and moving American cemetery at Omaha Beach, there is an abundance of things to do and see. The flat has lovely pink/white bedroom ideal for honeymooners,-space for 1 more in the living area.
