About the property



** Only two weeks remaining for 2017, from 30 September to 14 October **

'Flip Flop' has been our holiday home since 2007. It is a privately owned, three bedroomed, detached villa with heated pool just 800 metres from the beach at Moliets Plage in South West France.

It is the ideal holiday house for couples and families and suits those who simply want to relax by the pool or on the beach, or for those who prefer to be more active - surfers, golfers and cyclists are well catered for in the area. It makes a great base for those who want to explore the area, with the Pyrenees, northern Spain (San Sebastian, Pamplona and Bilbao), Biarritz, Bayonne and Bordeaux all possible as day trips.

'Flip Flop' is ideally located for the beach - it is less than ten minutes by foot, even with small children! - and with the golf course, shops and restaurants within 500 metres, it is an easy walk to all facilities. Nestled among the pines in a quiet residential area, yet in the heart of the village, the villa stands in a fenced garden of just over 600 m2.

There are three bedrooms, one with a large double bed (160cm x 200cm), one with a standard double bed (140cm x 190cm) and the third with one single bed and bunk beds (all three are 90cm x 190cm). All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with a hanging rail and shelving. The bathroom has a large shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. Additional separate WC.

The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric hob, electric oven, and place settings for 12 people. The kitchen leads onto an open plan dining and living area with an extendable dining table and 6 chairs. The living area has two leather sofas, a coffee table, TV unit with stereo, DVD player, television (French satellite channels) and SONOS system. Large sliding glass doors open onto the covered terrace.

Other facilities include a barbecue, washing machine, tumble dryer and clothes line. The house is well equipped for small children, with two high chairs, a baby bath, and one travel cot. There are also plastic plates, bowls and cups, toys, books and games.

Outside, the 8 x 4 metre heated swimming pool (built June 2013) is surrounded by decking with plenty of space for sunbathing. There is a heated outdoor shower so you can wash the sand off before jumping in the pool.

The covered terrace is an ideal location for the garden dining table and chairs in the heat of the summer, which can also be placed on the wooden decking in spring and autumn when it's not so hot. There is a selection of deck chairs and folding sun loungers.

NB The swimming pool is heated during the summer months (from May to September, or longer if the weather is good). Please note that if the air temperature is low we cannot guarantee the water temperature!

The house is ideal for families or two couples. No large groups of adults please.

Lovely house in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time in Moliets at Flip Flop. Its a great house that was perfect for parents, kids and grandparents. Its a well equipped and clean house, with a lovely heated pool, a big shady veranda, in a nice quiet area and is only a short dander to the beach, cafes and restaurants. We would definitely look to come back again.

Perfect... Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa in a fabulous location! Incredibly well set up for kids of all ages. Loads of games and the such like for cozy evenings. Good sized garden but not too big and with a good fence all round meaning we could let our boisterous three year old go roaming without too many worries! The heated pool was a huge hit. Clean, warm and well maintained with a really nice decking area to chill out while the boys went wild in the pool. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and the beach... miles of crisp white sand. You'll like it!

Superb communications from the owners leading up to and throughout the stay. All in all it was all we hoped for and more. Will definitely be back!

This was our second holiday at Flip Flop & we have booked our third! We never visit anywhere twice but the villa & area have us hooked. The villa is a perfect size for a family & extremely well equipped. The pool & outside space is fantastic. The area has amazing beaches & perfect for easy cycling. Ellie has provided us with so much additional information of places to visit in the surrounding area which has made the time there extra special. Brilliant holiday villa.

We'll definitely be booking again

  • 5 of 5

We arrived back home on Saturday after a wonderful week away and we're already missing life at Flip Flop!

This is now our third stay and we're definitely going to book again. It is the perfect place to stay for a family holiday and in a great location for nearby restaurants/cafes as well as activities and the beach! The private, heated pool was brilliant to have too and our 18 month old enjoyed swimming in it everyday.

We relaxed completely and felt very much at home the entire holiday. The house is clean, VERY comfortable and fully equipped making life so easy - especially when you have a toddler - I was even able to do some laundry before coming home! The kitchen has everything you need if you decide to stay in/have a barbecue outside.

Moliets et Maa is perfectly located - really easy to get to from Bordeaux airport and we had a great day trip to San Sebastian too! The beach nearby is beautiful and a very short walk to get to and the area around the house is peaceful and quiet.

The owners of the house left lots of really useful information about the house, what to do whilst you were there plus recommendations on where to eat. Booking was really easy and communication was great.

I continue to recommend this place to family and friends because it really is brilliant and we love it.

This was our third stay in Flipflop but hopefully won't be our last. The pool is a great addition and when the sun shone there was no better place to be.

The house itself is well appointed and has everything required in a holiday home, being both comfortable and functional.The outdoor and pool area is perfect for relaxing on those sunny days. The location of Flipflop is ideal and despite been so close to the beach and all the shops, restaurants and bars Moliets Plage has to offer it is a peaceful and private haven.

Best of all the owners couldn't have been more helpful and you know that they want you to enjoy your holiday and time in Flipflop.

Moliets is well known for its golf course (one of the top ten courses in France), and the beach is famous as one of the best surfing destinations in Europe. There are footpaths and dedicated cycle trails through the vast pine forest, and a nature reserve at the Courant d'Huchet, which runs from Léon to the sea just north of Moliets.

Further afield, Hossegor (30 km south) is renowned for its world class surfing; as is the elegant town of Biarritz. Also within easy reach are the stunning Pyrenees, and the Spanish splendour of San Sebastian. To the north are the Arcachon basin, Bordeaux and the wine producing areas.

NB we can provided guests with a discount code for Brittany Ferries, please ask.
