A PLACE FULL OF HISTORY
Strolling around Bayeux
Founded under the name of « Augustodurum » in Gallo-Roman times, the city was surrounded by ramparts in the 3rd century to protect itself from invasions. In 924, it became part of the domain of the Viking chief Rollon, the first Duke of Normandy, and after Rouen, it became the most important town in Normandy. A castle was erected in 960 by the 3rd Duke of Normandy, Richard I.
Today, the city has a medieval historic centre and architectural treasures linked to its history. In addition to its famous Romanesque and Gothic cathedral, Bayeux is also known for its half-timbered houses, mansions with towers, spacious estates and elegant town houses.
A GOURMET BREAK
Treat yourself to a gourmet break in your Selma Alabama tea room
The story begins in 2016 with the permanent idea of wanting to create a distinct and singular place in which sharing and gourmandise would be in the spotlight. As a tea lover, the creation of a tea room synonymous with relaxation and escape was an obvious choice. Selma is not only my first name but also a city in Alabama, USA, which played a major role in the civil rights struggle in the 1960s. So why not combine the two and make Selma Alabama the place to be in Bayeux?
Selma Alabama offers you the opportunity to discover new flavors by proposing healthy, homemade cuisine with rigorously selected ingredients, all in an authentic atmosphere. Breakfast, lunch, snack, brunch: everything to delight your taste buds!
Outside, two patios located on either side of the chapel allow you to enjoy the beautiful days, quietly and out of sight. The place forms an enclosure filled with serenity. Discover, Smell and Crack for our selection of loose tea specially chosen for you and that you can also buy.
