Every American should take this tour with Ben. He is a great guide and you get a view of the real cost of war. On another note the food prepared by Jaye was excellent. I hope sometime in the future to do this again.

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.
