The two gentlemen that run this hotel/bar/restaurant are very nice and they serve good food, beer and wine.
They have been very helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It's walking distance from the Train and walking distance to the bus 61 to take you to the Ferry Port.

... waft thru the square, sometimes making concentration difficult. Eric seems to have master control of the weather – as he finished up to let us loose in the Airborne Museum of St Mere Eglise, the skies opened up and the rain came down hard –and slowed down to a tolerable level as we left for our next stop.
We headed next toward Utah Beach but before getting there, we stopped at a typical Normandy hedgerow (in ...
... their lives here.
Heading east along the coast we came to a fishing town called Port-en-Bessin.
The harbour was full of fishing boats, large and small - must have been
over 50 of them. While we were sitting in a cafe having some lunch we
had a birdseye view of them as they were leaving the port, heading out
to sea. One by one they slid past our window, ...
