Reviewed 24 August 2010

This is a very pleasant chambre d'hote in the Normandy countryside not far from Omaha beach. The rooms are recently refurbished in a simple country style with en suite facilities. Dogs are welcome so long as they're not aggressive to other dogs.
What makes this place something other than a pleasant country B&B is the owner Jean-Noel's passion for second world war history. The breakfast room is decorated in the style of a 1940's French bar and houses his collection of memorabilia displayed as a diaporama of mannequins in US and German uniform.
Included in the price of a stay is a guided tour of the battlefields in Jean Noel's WWII US jeep. With our parachutists helmets on, our family, dog included, climbed into the jeep, with Jean-Noel dressed as ever as a US army mechnic and were taken on an incredibly atmospheric tour of the battlefields at dusk. There is nothing about the events of June 1944 that Jean Noel doesn't know about, and nobody who knows more about the skermishes around St Marie du Mont than himself. Nothing can bring the events to life more than the sounds and smells of being driven around in an open top authentic jeep.
We speak good French so had no problem with language, if you have a basic level of French you'll still enjoy the tour and the stories, but if you require there is the option of having an English speaking guide too if booked in advance.
The children loved staying here, as I did. This place is small and simple, but run with love and passion for the historic events that took place in the area. If you're looking for somewhere different to stay before or after a ferry trip, or if you're in the area specifically for the history, then you will thoroughly enjoy your stay here.
