We spent three nights, had two great meals that Viv fixed and toured d day beaches with Joe. We loved the country area. Joe's stories at dinner kept us laughing the entire time. I wish we had had more time to enjoy their hospitality.
Joe's knowledge of the Normady landing areas surpassed anything we would have been able to do on our own. Joe's perspective on Pont Du Hoc and Maisey battery show how the winners get to write history the way they want to.
The beds are very comfortable and the rooms very quiet.
We were made part of the family. I was invited by Joe to go to the bakery to get the morning bread and we joined them for dinner at a local restaurant one night. You couldn't want a better host.
