'La Genope'

Do beaches get any better than this?

La Genope is our holiday home and offers family accommodation in a truly exceptional beach-side location at one of Europe's most famous beaches. Omaha Beach became particularly famous as an American landing beach on D-Day - 6th June 1944 and the immediate area is full of very informative museums and memorials to those traumatic times. For those looking for an opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the allied liberators we can recommend an expert personal battlefield tour guide who will bring the D-day story to life for you including taking you to battlefield land marks that are not part of the usual tourist routes.

Today the beach offers acres of golden sands at low tide and very safe bathing including designated areas under surveillance from professional lifeguards in high season. Numerous opportunities for beach related leisure...

We traveled as a group of 3 adults and 5 children. The house was clean and perfect for our needs. We loved being directly at Omaha Beach. It was wonderful to wake up and have coffee in the sunny living room. Most everything we could...More

About the neighbourhood
Vierville Sur Mer is a small village that on 6th June 1944 found itself at the centre of world affairs when American troops defied the military odds by successfully completing an amphibious invasion. Despite huge casualties they overcame the German defences to establish a beach head from which the liberation of Europe could begin. A key part of this was an action led by General Norman ('Dutch') Cota who, at the very site of our house, led a small force of Rangers and others off the beach and up the bluffs and then circled back on the village of Vierville to secure the main route off the beach for the remainder of the America forces to utilise. As a result of that day's momentous operations the beach became known as 'Omaha Beach' and that name still sticks today. Just... more
