70th Anniversary and this hidden peninsula….


There is just so much going on in this area of Normandy, certainly I have learnt that the British side of the Invasion Beaches whilst busy with parachute displays etc. this American sector seems to making a huge affair out of it all…I’m finding my head is spinning and not able to express myself sufficiently, I’ve decided to try to make sense out of it all and at the same time to kill 2 birds with 1 stone…I’m starting a new blog and as we’re also creating a new web page it makes sense to join the 2 projects together.  

Our new webpage will be about Normandy, a lot of it about what this hidden peninsula has to offer, our concierge services, from car hire to bikes, war tours and in depth information plus our houses. 

My blog will be following the 70th anniversary preparations and manifestations, the whacky and official ceremonies plus I am researching bits of interesting historical facts – along with Mike’s photographs I hope I can bring this wonderful part of France alive for you all…and of course I’ll be updating about our renovation project in Sainte Marie du Mont plus all our creatures here at Ferme de l’Eglise…watch this space!!
