During the 40s it was war time with a lot of devastation. Following on from this period, lots of building were reconstructed and there are many examples of these in Normandy. Glenn Miller, Django Reinhart, Boris Vian and Claude Luter were making the "caves" of St-Germain des Prés dance, The Marshall Plan launched the fight against shortages and restrictions, while initiating the "glorious 30". Camus, Sartre and de Beauvoir were changing minds. The program of the National Council of the Resistance laid the foundations of French social protection. Optimism and the birth rate were at their highest. Experience the 40's with 21st century comfort at Villa Juno.
