Our trip to Normandy was the centerpiece of our European trip. We could have had no better guide than Ben, who in creative and poignant ways, brought the story of Normandy to life. Equally delightful was the warm and gracious hospitality of the beautiful manor....More

About the neighbourhood
A quiet hamlet of 16th-17th century buildings - rather like Brigadoon - and just 5 minutes west of Sainte Mere Eglise. The Manor would have dominated the area until the last century and was the scene of tragedy on the 6th June 1944.
