I`m planning a trip to France in August. I really would like to see the U boat pens in the flesh but everywhere I read the incentive is offputting as it appears they`re all off limits. What ones are the best t get up close? I read somewhere that there`s a bar nearby one of the areas that U boat crew frequented that is run by the daughter of the woman who served the crews during the war. This of course cannot be guaranteed but is there anyone that could offer me some pointers. I`d be driving south then taking the ferry and driving on.
