Really conflicted to write this review. I wanted to visit La Coupole for the chance to see an amazing structure, albeit for a sordid purpose, but you don't really get the opportunity to see what a massive complex this is. I do have an interest...More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast this morning and we enjoyed it a lot. Simple and good value. We shared the ‘la capoule’ (baguette and jam, croissant, two boiled eggs and a coffee) it was enough for two.

I had been watching shows on TV about V1 and V2 rockets and was glad to get the opportunity to come to France and actually see these sites. What you don't get from TV is the cold for example. You walk into the bunker and...More

As others have said, it is wheelchair accessible and there are lifts. The tunnels themselves can be faintly uneven with tiny stalagmites from the dripping water permeating the limestone. There are boardwalks in some areas... More
