The ancient town of Gerberoy has the prestigious honour of being in the top 100 most beautiful villages in France. Gerberoy was given its in the middle ages and means "town of the pink /roses"
As far back as 57BC there was a Roman settlement on the site which is now Gerberoy. For centuries Gerberoy was faught over by the French and English, because of its excellent strategic position, burned and re built many times.
Once the most influential town in France, you could not imagine a more sleepy village as it is today!
Ok....... I admit Gerberoy is not actually in Normadie but it is ONLY JUST over the boarder in Picardie, between Rouen & Beauvais (~_~)
We only ventured in the to the small town of Le Molay Vittery to find an ATM (and boulangerie of course! (~_~) ) as we were staying in a nearby village, by chance it was a Thursday which was the local market day. French markets are wonderful, such a great atmosphere, people from the out lying village still come together to meet for them.
Check out the below website for more information about the town. I wouldnt go out of my way to visit, but if your passing, especially on a Thursday pop in
When you are tramping across the fields above Omaha Beach, you'll notice the occasional pits which were caused when those WWII bombs met the earth. You will also see a few of these old bunkers, formerly occupied by the Bad Guys. Entre. There's no one else down here now but ghosts.
