Hotel's/ B&B's in Bayeux close to Omaha Beach war Cemetary

Ever since i first watched the fil 'saving private ryan' I've been captivated by the Omaha cemetary and have always wanted to go there and pay my respects, I am only 14, and although my parents would allow me to go I do not know how to find out the detail's etc. I really dont know where to start or what would be best, could someone please give me advice?

Bless your heart for wanting to see the D-day Beaches. We are Americans who speak no French and went a few years ago and had a memorable time! I have to try to find the B&B in Bayeux where we stayed and I will post again! We thought we might have to take guided tour,because we don't speak French, but everything was so clearly marked tyhat we just followed the seagull gigns and saw everything- and got to spend as much time as we wanted in each place.

We went to all the beaches and lots of little museums, as well as the American Cemetary, but what I remember most profoundly was the German Cemetary( you will see the sign on the Road) where the graves were being lovinglytended by young German soldiers and their is also a peace memorial- everyone should spend a few minutes there. Once I remember the name of the very reasonable B&B I will repost. I am sure you can take a ferry and then public transportation to Bayeux ( we flew to Paris and rented a car) I hope ypu get to go- you sound like a wonderful young man! ( Irecently retired from teaching 13 yr olds and I will say to your parents- if you possibly can- let your son have this opportunity!

La Ducrie, who has reviews listed on this site, is a great B&B. The owner, for a fee, will take you on a personal tour of the D Day beaches. If requested, they may even pick you up at the ferry in Cherbourg.

Hello young man,

you may have gone to Normandy already, as it happens I was there in april 2004 and most enjoyed the american and german cemetaries. I am a former american paratrooper and enjoyed staying in Bayeux. although i am not a "tour" person, I used battlebus tours as I had very little time(2-3 days) and they did an excellent job for me, even modifing the tour to accommate my "airborne" interests. if you can, stay in peoples homes (what we call bed and breakfast) they can give you an insight to the local area. best of luck
