If I can I will often visit a military cemetery, but this just hits you that every one of these graves were volunteers fighting a guerrilla style fight against the occupation of France.

Informative and in a beautiful setting overlooking nearby villages. Easily found due to signposts. Hundreds of graves and a huge memorial stone. Plenty of information in English and French. Toilets on site. Worth a visit to those interested in French Wartime history.
