“Very welcoming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

We spent 2 nights at La Fiere. We arrived in the evening, close to when the restaurants close in St Mere Eglise, but Vivian and Rudolph immediately made sure that we had a plan for dinner. They made us reservations for both nights we were there at 2 different restaurants that were very good, and were terrific hosts serving us a nice breakfast, giving us directions, and letting us know where to go for different things that we might be interested in. We especially enjoyed Rudolph’s stories and chatting with him in the evening and in the morning at breakfast too. He’s really funny and entertaining! We had some issues when we arrived not relating to our stay and Vivian helped us out when we were in a pickle, even though she didn’t know us, and saved us from some real hassles!
The rooms are very clean and they did a really nice job renovating the house. The countryside is really beautiful around the property but other than the fantastic views, walking to the river and the war monument, you won’t be able to visit anything on foot from the B&B. The town is a short distance away and so are the restaurants.

Room Tip: The pictures of the rooms online are very helpful. ALSO: Be sure to print out the directions that...

LaFiere, Owner at B&B a la Bataille de La Fiere, responded to this review, 7 May 2012
Thank you for your kind words about us and our B&B. We enjoyed sharing our place with the four of you. We do our best to adjust to the needs of our guests. Of course we enjoy kind social graces and appreciation. We try to share our love and respect for this sacred battlefield site.

All potential guests shoud understand that battlefield sites do not always find themselves convenient to the center of towns and villages. This is dairy farm country, not a metropolis. Fortunately, we are only 3 km from Ste. Mère-Eglise. There are a couple of nice restaurants there. There are a few others in near villages. By all means, print the directions that I attach to every confirmation of reservations. AND.....please keep them near. Follow these directions and you will arrive here with no troubles. Do not by-pass the instructions. Use the GPS coordinates, not the address. If you do otherwise, you may end up at the other end of La Fière road. It is a loop road and both ends arrive at D15. Also, do not mistake the raliway overpass as the bridge. La Fière bridge crosses over the Merderet. That is where you will find us.

So if you have failed to print and bring the directions, if you decide to use a GPS without our coordinates, if you do not read the signs noted along the route......please do not fault us with a less than five rating. This is where the Battle of Normandy began 5 June 1944. It will be an awesome experience for anyone interested in WWII history.

As for walking tours near our B&B...... there are several. Cauquigny Chapel is just at the end of this Causeway and the DeGlopper Honor is just a little further. The 507th PIR Monument is also in walking range. We have brochures and maps here for all our guests. These guests did arrive late one evening, left right after breakfast for a D-Day Battlefield guided tour all of the next day, then left the next morning. They did not stay long enough to go for a walk.

We are a WWII history themed B&B. If that is where your interest lies, please come join us as we share this sacred place and try to keep the memory alive for others. V&R

I stayed with Rodolphe and Vivian Roger at the a la Bataille de La Fière for three nights and had a great experience and a very pleasant stay. Vivian is full of passion and excitement as well as local history, which I really enjoyed. Rodolphe is great and is very accomodating and helpful, to say the least. He helped transport me to a few places in town and also made life much easier for me when I went to rent a car. Their B&B is very clean, comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. The location of their B&B is very special, as a critical battle did take place at this location. One evening, when walking outside of the B&B under a brilliant sunset, I could just imagine in my mind the troops, planes, gliders, enemy tanks, and the action that took place at this historical site. Thank you Vivian and Rodolphe for having me and sharing this delightful and historical B&B with me. May Iron Mike look upon you throughout each day and take great care of you in the future!
All the Best!

We stayed at La fiere for 2 nights and is was very nice. The room was very clean and cared for. In addition Vivian and Rodolphe made the stay very personal by giving good tips and advice about the area, things to see, but also good restaurants!
And besides all the impressive historical sights, the west coast is worth a visit as well.
So if you are planning to visit Normandy, you have to stay at Vivian and Rodolphe's place to even make it a better visit!

Proprietors Vivian and Rodolphe Roger make this one of the most comfortable and relaxing B and B's I have ever stayed at. Located at the site of one of the most crucial battles of WW II, it is today a bucolic and serene site, yet one which is surrounded by memories of the heroic actions of American Forces in liberating Normandy and eventually all of France. Anyone with even a minor interest in the events of 1944 in Normandy would benefit from a stay at this delightful spot. Visitors could spend their whole trip in the large library/parlor/dining room (with roaring fireplace and comfortable couches) going through the large collection of books, magazines, and military paraphenalia on display or listening to the Rogers recount the history of the area or talk about the many veterans who have returned over the years. But leave plenty of time to wander the neighboring countryside to see the actual sites where history was made. A local historical association has erected a number of memorials to the heroes who fought here as well as numerous displays which depict what actually happened at many different locations. We left feeling as if we were members of the family after just one weekend. (And the breakfast eggs are "to die for". ) Jack McNealy Rindge, NH

Arrived at La Fiere after motorcycling through the rain,to the wonderful smell of home cooking[Garlic and onions!] making me salavate immediately!!Shame no dinner to sit down too!!Very high standard of decor and cleanliness and Rodolphe and Viviene could not have been more helpful.Fantastic eggs in the morning[Viviene's recipie] and a wonderful setting to wind down in.Very knowledgeable about the local history and battles but geared specifically toward Americans.In fact this is a little piece of the USA in Normandy.Had a wonderful time.

I spent two nights on business at Rodolphe and Vivian's beautiful B & B. They made my Normandy experience unforgetable and more than being consumate host I left knowing I have made great friends for life. Their B & B was awesome. Great breakfast, clean and comfortable. They made reservations at local resturantes, provided expert advice on what to see, got weather reports and made lunch on request. And then there is the history... sitting on their patio you have a front row seat for the battle over the bridge at la Fiere. Vivian and Rodolphe own and operate a very special property and they do it with great respect for the history that surrounds them. I can not wait to return with my family.

Room Tip: The 82nd Aiborne Room (top floor) is great for young families and kids sleeps 4-5 with a bath and a...
