Hourtin Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom villa, sleeps 7 plus cot in enclosed plot with own pool
Located in a residential location, two minutes stroll from the centre of the pretty little market town of Hourtin, is this lovely 3 bedroom villa, set in a good size plot with private swimming pool and garden. Spacious and comfortable, this is the perfect base from which to explore the local lakes (2 minute drive to Hourtin lake, 15 minutes to stunning Maubuisson), the never ending beaches of France's Atlantic coast (10 minute drive) or the world famous vineyards of the Medoc (20 minutes and you are at Chateau Lafite). The surrounding area is perfect for walking, cycling, water sports, or eating and drinking - whatever you enjoy. The house is fully equipped with all you'd expect and is child friendly. 45 minutes drive from Bordeaux (Merignac) Airport, Hourtin is a beautiful little town with all the necessary shops. A larger range of shops and the big supermarkets are located 15 minutes away in Lesparre, and the surrounding towns/villages offer unlimited opportunities to explore.
The region of France surrounding Bordeaux has the largest production of fine wine in the world. If you are into wine, then you'll know the likes of Lafite, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux and Latour, and if you plan ahead you can book into these grand Chateaux for a tour and tasting. However, it's also fun discovering the vineyards that aren't so well known. The best place to start is the Maison du Tourisme et Vin in Pauillac about 20 minutes from Hourtin - it's near to the river and well signposted. They often hold tastings and can book you into different vineyards. Other suggestions for day trips out include the busier surf beaches at Lacanau Ocean, the pretty resorts around the Bassin d''Arcachon where there is also a fantastic water park and the enormous sand dune at Pyla or, for some culture, Bordeaux itself.
