Vikings fought over this ground just beside an estuary they used to shelter in whilst raiding the local lands. Bishop Odo, brother of William the Conqueror, built 5 castles as defensive measures against the frequent raids and linked them all with tunnels under the sea. One castle was used during WW2 by the Germans as an observation post and shelled by the Americans but never rebuilt after the War. Now some 60 storks live there. Adrian can tell you how the Castle features so significantly in the WW2 history of La Rougerie and the local area.
The farm itself was the site of an ambush by the Germans (Kampfgruppe Heintz) of the 3rd Battallion 117th Inf Regiment 30 Infantry Division on the 7th July 1944.
Not all partners are military enthusiasts. Women, however, made up a significant percentage of the work force during WW2 and your guide is able to bring to life the stories about life for the women in the war, be they resistance workers, armaments factory workers or German girls working towards their "Mutter's cross"!
If this still doesn't meet your needs then others have found a day spent on LaRougerie Farm with the animals is very rewarding! Finally Adrian can arrange a local golfing enthusiast to take you on a tour of the lovely Normandy courses.
