“Everything you would want from a Family Holiday”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We took our Daughter,Son-in-Law and Grand-Children. La Genope was a perfect base to explore this wonderful and Historic part of France. Something for everyone of all ages to see and do. We have visited this part of France many times over the years and this was by far the best location and the accommodation was so very well equipped and just a few yards from the beach for the family to visit each day.

The memories of Omaha Beach will remain with us always.

Thank you Matthew and Penny for being so helpful and friendly

Regards Paul and family

“Just what we was looking for”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Me and two friends visitet the Allied landing grounds for 4 days in june this year. La Genope is located spot on Omaha Beach. The house is located at the Perfect Place. Beautyful sunsets over Omaha Beach. We had a rental car and that is å must here. The contact With the owners was exelent and all communication worked Perfect. The Place had a big front yard, and a safe gate. Perfect for families. The house was equipped With all the Things you need. We loved this and will most certanly come back here. The owner recommended a D-Day guide for us. He was (is) very competent and we had a great day in the american sector With him.

“Fabulous location and nice, spacious home!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

La Genope has an outstanding location, right on the beautiful Omaha beach! Small, well equipped kitchen, nice living and dining area, plenty of bedrooms even for a good sized group. The home is welcoming and comfy! Very nice!

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

La Genope is a wonderful beach house and provided the six adults in our group a comfortable stay. Only a couple issues came up during stay and these issues were handled immediately by person at number left for contact. A large binder of maps and attraction booklets was very helpful.

It was the perfect base for visiting D-Day/Overlord sites. We did much of our touring by bicycle, so everything was within easy distance.

Of course, every day included a walk on Omaha Beach. You need to keep on eye on the fast incoming tide when out near water's edge. The tractors transporting boats across the beach provided convenient heads-up whether the tide was coming in or going out. If tractor left at water's edge: going out. Sand yachts, horse carts, para-surfers, large three masted sailing ship... Something to see each day. Most touching was a tour group at far west of Omaha Beach. Veterans of the US 116th Infantry, they were collecting sand in bottles from Dog Green. (They were not D-Day veterans, but more recent unit veterans, honoring their predecessors.) The American cemetery can be reached from the beach.

Bicycle riding inland was beautiful too. Wandering around bocage country, our favorite find on the bicycle: Les Jardins de Castillon, Plant-Bessin. Beautiful gardens with a 'room' design that mimics the hedgerow-fields of Normandy.

Port-en-Bessin-Huppain, less than 10 miles away, had a number of good restaurants.
