Our stay was wonderful and we were surprised to have our own little chalet room. It was large and beautifully appointed and central to everything. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a place in this area.

The land was given to America at no cost and no taxes by the French government. We had an excellent guided tour of the grounds by an English woman.

At Omaha beach where we relaxed and enjoyed a cup of coffee a few days ago there is a large American cemetery covering 172 acres (70 ha) containing 9387 American ...
