About this property

Modern, Well Equipped Flat, Next To Bayeux Cathedral. This apartment is in a town setting.

Le Guillaume is a beautifully refurbished apartment on the second floor of a very old building, once part of William the Conqueror's Cathedral, and right opposite the old salt store.
It is amazingly well equipped with everything the traveller could possibly require.
We purchased it in 2002 and had the entire apartment internally demolished and re-designed to make the most of its limited space.
 
The main living area has two windows overlooking the new museum, with a breakfast bar seperating the kitchen area.
The bedroom is decorated in pinks and white, and is very pretty.
The shower room links the living area and the bedroom with two doors.
