An open field bordered by a forest.
Rue des Quatres Allees
Eastbound on the N12, take the D912 exit and continue south on the D311 that will turn into the rue Jean Jaures. Shortly after reaching the church, take the rue Henri Dupont west until turning SW on the rue Les Quatres Allees. Right before the first northbound turn-off you see, backtrack a few dozen meters and look on the south part of the road. There will be a wooden barrier with a no car, motorcycle or scooter sign. Follow that trail. When you see multiple small wooden stumps across the path, go through them and follow the path left. You will come onto an open field with the monument visible at the treeline.
