    your best bet is a bed and breakfast place. There a place in saint meroglies that nice. Very old stuff from, pre war in some of the rooms, Door handles are 1920 or 1930 ish. Some towns in Normandy look very modern. (sorry for my bad spelling)

    When i went to Normandy, we didnt use tours. Did the research our self and just went to the places, It every where. Anyways as Military shops in Normandy, are not very impressive. Many have there stuff over priced on WWII stuff. They add on the "Normandy" price to it all, even if the peice is not from Normandy. Maybe youll get lucky and find somthing, but I never did.

    I take it you mean St Mere Eglise ??

    Go to the Old Museum at Falaise / Corridor of Death Museum at Chambois and you have to see the Tiger 1 at Vimoutiers.

    As for accomodation there is plenty in all the Battlefield locations

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi there
    i have been to normandy many times and am going back next june, we mainly go camping so i could not help you with places to stay, but there are lots of small villages in the area with b and b type accomodation. As long as you have a basic map you can follow the beaches down from utah to sword and as long as you follow the main roads, nearly all of the main sites of interest are really well signposted. There is so much to see you will need longer than a week, there are so many museums to see, i can recommend the one at utah beach, the airborne museum in ste mere eglise, the longues battery, dead mans corner museum (Paratrooper Militaria) and pegasus bridge, but there are so many more, i would suggest looking on the internet first and making a route / planner, you can also see some pics on there of places that will take your interest. If you hire a car or bike, the roads are very good and its easy to find your way around.

    As far as militaria shops, they tend to be very overpriced, because of the area, and the items for sale are not the best (i have seen a big change since i first went out there in 1989) there are surprisingly very few shops in the area, the best ones i can think of is static line in ste mere eglise, there is also another shop to the left of the main square and one other small antique shop near static line selling some small militaria items. There is also a shop in ste marie du mont near the church, and also there is a shop attatched to dead mans corner museum.

    I hope this helps a little bit, if you need any more information on places to visit etc, please dont hesitate to get in touch, i will help as best as i can.

    regards
