Patricia and Laurent - thank you again for your great hospitality and making my stay in Normandy truly amazing ! To prospective guests. The Spirit of 1944 is a fantastic place to stay while visiting the landing beaches. Location is very close to every historic site. Plus you will get some help and guidance from your hosts to make the experience even better. I thought I had a great guide book with me but the detailed map Laurent provided gave me an opportunity to visit some less visited sites that were incredible (like German bunkers right on the beach that I had to myself). In terms of the inn itself I stayed in the Eisenhower room that was incredibly comfortable and nicely decorated in the spirit of 1944. Adjacent bathroom was spacious, very clean and reminded me of some quite fancy hotels I stayed at in the past. The farmhouse is located outside of the village center and I can guarantee you will get a good night sleep as it is very quiet especially at night. This historic house has a very nice library and again is decorated with various pieces related to 1944 and the liberation of France (which for a military hobbyist like me was an additional treat). Breakfast was fantastic both days and I cannot praise the hospitality of Patricia and Laurent enough ! When I come back to the area I have no doubt where I will stay ! If you are looking for a great place to stay during your visit to Normandy The Spirit of 1944 is the place to go.
