Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

Normandy is a region whose rich history, culture, cuisine and natural resources make it a must-see destination for tourists and French travelers alike. Outdoor enthusiasts will love long beaches, cycling, horseback riding, and a variety of other outdoor activities. For food lovers, this is a region unlike any other, offering world-renowned products like Camembert cheese and Calvados (apple brandy). You can partake in the region's maritime tradition by enjoying freshly caught seafood from local waters. History lovers will enjoy touring the D-Day landing beaches (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, Sword) and meditating in the military cemeteries

Colleville-Montgomery

Colleville-Montgomery, former Colleville sur Orne, renamed in memory of Field Marshal Bernard L. Montgomery, is located 12km north of Caen the, front of the sea, on the Sword D.Day landing beach.

From La Brèche d'Hermanville to Ouistreham, Sword Beach was the eastern zone of the three beaches where the British troops were landing on 6th June 1944. The German units that occupy the defenses were second rank troops, like the "Osttruppen". At 7 am the British tanks and infantry slammed ashore. All the German strong points had not been destroyed by the air bombing and the navy shelling. The British suffered heavy losses in some sectors of the beach. Around 9 am they began to advance inland, bypassing pockets of resistance. The 1st Suffolk Regiment landed at 9:30 am, then moved toward Colleville-sur-Orne and liberated the town. The 1st Suffolk seized a German artillery position, and ran up against another. They were kept in check by the solid fortifications of Hillmann, where was set up the headquarter of a regiment of the 716th German Infantry Division. The British overcame the German defenses of Hillmann around 10 pm, with the support of the Hussars and the 22nd Dragoons tanks.
