History of the hotel “le Clos de la Chapelle”

At the beginning of the 15th century, the place belonged to the tanners, a rich and religious brotherhood. The construction of a small private chapel would have been used for the brotherhood’s small religious services.

In the 17th century, the chapel was integrated into the Domaine des Augustines.

In the middle of the 18th century (the Age of Enlightenment), merchants who owned the premises built a new building on the street side, adjoining the original building.During the French Revolution (end of the 18th century), the chapel, which no longer belonged to the Augustinians, was attached to the property of the merchants.

In the 19th century, the “Clos de la Chapelle” became a small private mansion with its servants. The various wars spared the city of Bayeux, thus protecting its magnificent real estate assets.

In 2017, the whole building and its chapel are entirely restored to become a guest house with suites of high standing.
