D Day - Landing Beaches

Located 5km from the landing beaches, the hotel experienced the Battle of Normandy on the front line. It is surrounded by testimonies, cemeteries, memorials and museums of this painful moment in the history of France.

The Caen Memorial, a timeless tribute to the soldiers who fell during the Normandy landings, is located 20 minutes from the hotel.

Bayeux retraces the great hours of the Battle of Normandy at the General de Gaulle Memorial and at the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy.

A few km from the hotel, along the landing beaches, Colleville sur Mer houses the American cemetery. The American Cemetery is one of the most impressive testimonies of the memories of fallen soldiers. The territory given by France to the United States for it to bury Americans of all faiths, who died during the Normandy landings, faces the sea. A monumental sculpture pays homage to the dead.

Arromanches, 6km from the hotel, was one of the high places of the Battle of Normandy: Arromanches 360 presents a documentary on 9 screens in a circular room. Combining archive footage and today’s footage, the film traces the highlights of the Normandy landings.

The Arromanches Landing Museum exhibits videos and animated models in front of the remains of the artificial port, to keep the memory of the Normandy landings alive. Le Manoir de Mathan is a charming hotel, a stopover near the D-Day landing beaches.
