About the neighborhood
Right in the heart of the WW2 American Sector Landing Beaches, less than 3 miles from Utah Beach, Sainte Mere Eglise & located in the 1st village liberated on 6th June 1944 we are also in the heart of a National Park - an area of outstanding natural beauty & conservation.
We are not just war here - so much to see & do - 35 minutes from Bayeux with the UNESCO Tapestry, Cherbourg where Titanic docked for the last time before her fateful voyage.
Mont St Michel an hour away, Bayeux, American Cemetery, Omaha, Sword, Gold, Juno the other invasion Beaches less than 40 minutes. Point du Hoc, Grandcamp Maisy just the other side of the bay can be seen from the village. Carentan, Ste Mere Eglise all a matter of minutes away...then there is the Nationa

Country lanes plus the N13 as the main route through the area...great access - no traffic jams here...well the occasional hold up from cows being moved for milking!

LONG DISTANCE TRAVELLERS: Travel Advice, Car Hire & Transfers - we have been doing vacation rentals now for 16 years with 75% of our business from America...so, to make life easier for you!

Want Chauffeur pick up instead of queuing for Paris taxi? We can arrange for you to be met in arrivals hall to take you to the station, or your Paris hotel if staying overnight, (you pay us when you get here…we have an account with a car company).

There are no car hire companies in Carentan but we work with local Renault Dealership - their competitive prices are inclusive of insurance etc. but no one speaks English in the office so I need to book it for you, however they pick you up at the station as the train comes in & run you back just before your train departs, you pay them direct.
