Our address is: 7 Route des Perruques, Grandcamp-Maisy, 14450, Calvados, France

The road has a couple of different names. Routes des Perruques on some SatNav’s – and just “Les Perruques” on others. If you have a smart phone, this is the link on Google Maps:

The site is hidden inside fields to the side of the D514, which is the main road that goes from Osmanville to Grandcamp-Maisy. From Osmanville and/or the N13 motorway, follow the signs for Pointe du Hoc. As you enter Grandcamp, you will see a sign for the town on your right and we are located 200 metres after that on the left.

If you are coming to the site from the direction of Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc – then simply follow the roadsigns for Isigny-sur-Mer. Go through Grandcamp – (around the roundabout and straight up the  road away from the harbour).  About 600 metres later, you will go through the small village square of Maisy. There is a church on the left and a restaurant on the right; keep going along that main road. The site is about 400 metres away at the top of the hill in the direction of Isigny.  There is a road sign at the end of the road and you turn right onto a small country road.

 

We had put up more roadsigns – but the French authorities have changed their policy on local roadsigns – and we have had to take them back down.  However, there is a good sign at the top of the hill on the main road indicating where to turn.

Once you are on Route des Perruques, we are about 500 metres down the lane on your left.  You will see the site cabin with flags and the car park. But you cannot see the site – it was designed by the Germans to be hidden from the road, so you need to go into the cabin to get a site map. Then you can walk around the trenches, bunkers and tunnels at your leisure using the map.

If you have any problem locating us, then feel free to just ask someone. The locals know where the site is. Alternatively, call us on 00447411932197 and we’ll help you out!
