Stayed August 2019
Ok firstly we had a major disappointment finding out only 2 weeks to arrival the pool was out of order leaving us no options finding somewhere else with a pool that said the property is large and spacious with everything you need, The garden is very large with plenty of room for children to play. Aude the local property manager was extremely welcoming and friendly and had good advice on the odd occasion we needed to contact her. You will need a car, Carcans itself is only 4km away and Maubuisson around 10km (the lake side beach is definitely worth a visit). Despite our very limited French (we tried) when visiting shops and restaurants we found everyone extremely friendly and helpful
Chez Resinier in June
We enjoyed 8 nights in Chez Resinier I’m the first week of June 2019.
The cottage is in the country, a few kilometres from Carcans, being the nearest town. Access requires a car.
The property enjoys many facilities although it turned out that the pool couldn’t be used as the liner had to be replaced. We were informed about this two or three weeks ahead of our stay.
Apologies but pool liner has been on order for some time . As our pool is not a standard size or shape, it has to be specially made.
In any event, since the pool is not heated, it would have been a brave person to swim in our pool in early June.
Fabulous Holiday at Chez Resnier
Lovely welcome from Aude, local manager who took us through essential info key to which are fresh pastries and breads that can be ordered each morning. House spacious, airy, clean and with all amenities needed for the stay. Pool a huge hit with all of us; 3 adults, 3 children, big enough for numerous inflatables, again clean. House situated in large grounds, peaceful and quiet but within a few minutes drive of Carcans where the supermarket and local shops have everything we needed. Hired bikes, again organised by Aude, and cycled to Maubisson, slice of paradise with white sands and warm lake; cycle paths excellent and flat! Carcans Plage amazing for the surf and spectacle of protected dunes, variety of restaurants and shops but not touristy. Would definitely recommend to those who like to do something and nothing and we will probably return. Would say car is needed.
Delighted you had a lovely stay and thank you for taking the trouble to write a review.
Peaceful rural house with good pool
We are 2 families with grown up children. We had a wonderful stay in Chez resinier. We spent most of the time lounging round the pool and eating alfresco.
The house was very comfortable and well equipped for all our needs.
The owner Vivien was a pleasure to deal with and sent us very comprehensive guides to the house and all the facilities in the surrounding area.
When we arrived we were met by Aude who was very friendly and was only too happy to help us with all our various questions about the house and surrounding area.
Would we recommend this house to our friends? Would we come again? Absolutely on both counts.
Thank you very much for submitting this review. We hope to welcome you and friends and family back in the future.
Relaxing week in a wonderful home from home
We were a family of four adults and had a fantastic week in this villa. We cook a lot rather than eat out so were pleased to find a kitchen with everything we needed. The main bedroom with en suite was beautiful and the swimming pool was essential as we had a heat wave when we visited. The villa has a quaint rustic charm which made you feel immediately at home and relaxed. There was no noise or disturbance. Aude across the road was excellent. One of the party hired a bike for the week - it looked brand new and the service was excellent. Good wifi and TV. We visited Chateau Spleen in nearby Moulis for a vineyard tour and tasting which was excellent. Hourtin Plage was the best beach for us, much quieter than the others. If you want a relaxing week with no fuss then this is recommended.
Thank you for writing this guest review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at Chez Resinier. The beaches to the north of us are generally quieter than Lacanau Ocean and Carcans Plage and often it is much easier to park.
LOVELY VACATION HOUSE IN QUIET COUNTRY SETTING
We spent a delightful week in this quiet country house near Carcans. The house is on a large lawned property within a cluster of homes surrounded by pine forest.. It is very quiet, yet just minutes away from town and stores. The house itself is spacious,comfortable, clean, and well-furnished. We appreciated the large, well-equipped kitchen and that large dining table that allowed us to spread out our computers at one end and still have room for meals. All the appliances and bathroom fixtures worked great. Full dishwasher and clothes washer. Great internet access. The property is large enough to allow one to spend the day at the house or by the pool. And, it is very close to cute villages like Carcans, Hourtin, and Lacanau Plage. Pauillac, at the heart of the Medoc wine country is only 20 minutes away. Lots of wine chateaux and estates to visit, another great experience. There are plenty of large stores close enough to provision with whatever is desired. The nearby manager is very helpful and speaks good English. She helped us rent bikes to explore the wonderful new asphalted bike paths leading to Carcans, Maubuisson, and Hourtin. We certainly recommend this house to anyone who likes to enjoy the countryside but also wants sites to see and outdoor activities to enjoy.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you for writing this review and allowing us to share your appreciation with others.
Our house is located between Carcans and Hourtin in the coastal Gironde. It is situated in a small hamlet called St Helene de L'Etang about 5 kilometers from Carcans and close to Maubuisson and the Lac du Carcans and Hourtin and the famous surfing beaches of the Atlantic such as Carcans Plage and Lacanau. Also close by are the wine regions of the Medoc; further afield but still within easy driving distance are Bordeaux; St Emilion and Arcachon and the Pyla Dune.
Golf: There are four golf clubs within easy driving distance and two offer two 18 hole courses. The nearest golf course is Golf de L'Ardilouse at Lacanau with a beautiful 18 hole course through the pine forests and featuring several water hazards. Close by is Golf de la Mejanne which is a challenging 9 hole course. Within 30-45 minutes' driving distance are Golf du Medoc with two 18 hole courses ( including the wonderful les Chateaux course) and Golf de Bordeaux Lac with two 18 hole courses. There is also a great family par3/9hole course at Lacanau
