We had a wonderful stay at La Batterie du Holdy. The B&B is an old farmhouse in the countryside, complete with horses, dogs, chickens, and geese. The rooms are simple and comfortable. The owners are the friendliest we have ever encountered. Despite us speaking almost no French and them speaking only a little English, we felt welcomed like old friends.
Jean's knowledge of the D-Day events is encyclopedic, and he loves to share it. The Jeep tour he took us on was the highlight of our stay in Normandy. The English-speaking guide who came with us (which must be arranged in advance) was also very good. We had to pay separately for the tour, unlike another reviewer, but it was well worth it. The tour can also be booked even if you don't stay with them.
If you are coming to this area to see the D-Day historical sites, it would be hard to find a better place than this to stay. Like many local B&B's, this house was actually used by soldiers during the war. However, this is surely the only one that features several running WWII vehicles, a reconstructed battery with a gun that you can sit on and aim, and breakfast in a WWII-style bar with enough artifacts to fill a small museum. It is quite inexpensive, as well.More
