About the neighbourhood
In the heart of the WW2 Invasion Beaches, the American sector, a mile away from Heisville, 6 miles Sainte Marie du Mont & 4 miles from Carentan & Mere Eglise...remember that scene in The Longest Day where John Wayne bangs the board with his stick shouting Ste Mere Eglise...well that's us!

We are 2 km from Dead Man's Corner Museum...2 and a half from the HQ of The Park Naturel Cotentin & Bessin...our village has a liberty marker with 888 on it - 8 km to Carentan & 8 km to Ste Mere Eglise. At the crossroads at the far end of the village, you can go straight and join the N13 heading towards Bayeux/Caen or left to join the N13 the other side of Blosville (our nearest boulangerie) heading towards Cherbourg & Ste Mere Eglise.
