Guestbook comments from the owner
La of Sa Fontaine was an excellent place to base our exploration of the Cotentin Peninsular and the D-Day beaches. The stone house had very comfortable sleeping arrangements with lots of space and facilities. It also had a rich library of information on the region. The near-by village of Ste Mere Eglise which we passed through twice a day on our way to and from the highway had a great grocery store and a wonderful market on Thursdays.
