Using Route Nationale N13, the Hôtel de La Croix de Malte is ideally located for visiting
Sainte-Mère-Église where the paratroopers of the American 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions
parachuted into Normandy on the night of 5th/6th June 1944, Pointe du Hoc and the American
landings on Utah Beach and Omaha Beach.
