This cemetery is quite small but extremely moving. We visited on Mother's Day and a tour group had left single long stemmed roses on several graves. This is a stop that is worth your time and is a very well maintained site.

Most impressive reminder of those who gave so much for our freedom, but also helps to understand the tactics and geography of regaining lost territory for re-establishing the Frnch nation.

One of the smaller cemeteries, but well worth the stop. Allison running the cemetery is very enthusiastic about her charge, and they make a real effort to make visitors and surviving family members feel welcome.

Peaceful, quiet and distinguished. Paid our respects to these brave soldiers. Cemetery is beautifully maintained and a lovely non-denominational chapel on the grounds.

This immaculately maintained cemetery is a quiet tribute to those allied troups who sacrificed their lives at the end of WWII.

This was a highlight in a small town in France to American soldiers who helped liberate France. We were in a group of 43 Americans including one WWII veteran who wore his cap. The cemetery officials and guide speak perfect English and are proud of...More

A very moving military cemetery as a memorial to the brave service people who came to lands afar and fight for Freedom and Liberty but never went home. Well worth an hour of your time.
