Ivy House - a place in D-day history
Ivy House near the village of Sainte Marie Du Mont, offers self catering and B&B beach vacation rentals; perfect for a Normandy D-day beach holiday.
Our home was once occupied by German soldiers manning the bunkers of the Atlantic Wall coastal defenses but now nestles peacefully in beautiful Normandy countryside.
We are located directly behind the D-day Utah Beach; one of the five beaches used by the allies in World War 2. The four other D-day beaches are all under 1 hour from our location.
