Actually ON Utah Beach itself, the garden gate opening onto the dunes and with direct access onto the beach, and while dining in the conservatory you are looking at Point du Hoc...you really cannot get any closer to the Invasion Beaches!

A self catering detached 4 bedroom 3 bathroom beach house classified as 3 star, tucked up in the dunes of Utah Beach Normandy has a path leading directly onto D Day Invasion Utah Beach. Located 30 minutes from Arromanches, Bayeux, The America Cemetery, we are an ideal location to explore the WW2 Invasion Beaches. The view from the conservatory is Grand Campmaisy, Point du Hoc where the Rangers stormed and the Isles of Marcouf. But note it's not all war here! We have on 1 side the museum & 500 yards the other side the bird sanctuary on 1,200 acres. Unspoilt coastline in an area of natural beauty a...

We had an amazing stay at this house. Perfect location with your own beach. Near town (Ste Marie du Mont) for shops and restaurants. The house is comfortable and very well appointed. The owners have thought of everything you may need during your stay. They made us feel welcomed. Already making plans to go back! Thank you Mike & Tansy.
