We are stopping near Bayeux for three days in August to get a taste of the area and are travelling with our 12 year old daughter. (We will already have spent a week in Pontorson.)
So - re WWII - please can anyone tell us which sites they think might be interesting/suitable for us to visit and learn something and feel the atmosphere without having to participate in a several hour tour that would be too much for Annabel who hasn't started her WWII history yet at school? Ideally we'd like to be able to dip into things over the few days rather than try to do everything in one very long day.
Somebody mentioned an American diner they stumbled on near the American Cemetery that would be good to incorporate in a trip. Does anybody know anything about this?
There may also be something else, other than WWII-themed visits, that would be appropriate for us?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
Many thanks. Sarah
