Le Pont de la Pierre Vintage B&B was built in 1758 and is located in beautiful tranquil countryside on the borders of Calvados and La Manche. We are close to the D-Day landing beaches and other historical sites in Lower Normandy.
Mike is Dutch and is working as a full-time battlefield tour guide here in Normandy. His wife Deb has set up and decorated our vintage B&B, as well as her antiques shop.
In 1944 a battle for the nearby bridge "Le Pont de la Pierre" took place. The US 29th Infantry Division attempted to cross it on the 12 June but failed, suffering many casualties. In memory of those who fell during this actions, we have erected a monument in our field close to the bridge.
We have renovated the house in the style of the 1920-1940s era, which is our personal taste in design, furnishing and fashion. We also are much involved in the 1940s dance scene and WW2 re-enactments.
We are dedicated to give our guests a truly vintage experience.
