“Perfect Location”
Reviewed October 20, 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.

Really pleased you enjoyed the house. There is a wood burning stove in the lounge which makes it really warm when you light it.
