Great location

  • 4 of 5

House set in a quiet location - a 10 minute cycle along a cycle path to beach and town of lacanau ocean. Although the house is small it had everything we needed. We communicated with the owner by text and he answered all our texts promptly. We had a lovely time and would recommend.

A great little spot amoungst the pine trees

  • 5 of 5

The property was compact, but had everything we needed for 3 adults. We loved the outdoor area, we spent most of our time here when at home.

Jamie was very helpful with our questions when we checked in.

The place has a lovely pool and is surrounded by bike tracks. Hiring a bike from town is a great idea. You avoid the traffic, don't have to pay for parking and you exercise all at the same time. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Thanks for a great stay

This small, but very clean house, had everything we needed for this holiday. A washing machine, a swimmingpool, fantastic beach and waves and beautiful forest. Owner is very kind and responds quickly. Thanks so much for a great holiday!

Fabulous family holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect holiday house set away from the hustle and bustle of Lacanau but only a few minutes away. The property is small but had everything we needed (2 adults and 2 children), the outside area was great for alfresco dining and with the sunshade it was lovely in the middle of the day. The property was clean and well maintained with nice furniture and it is well equipped. The neighbours were very friendly.

They property is set on the huge network of cycle paths we didn't ever need to use our car and could easily access the town, beach, lakes and surrounding countryside on our hire bikes. We do a lot of cycling but have never found such amazing provision for cyclists and would recommend this area to any like minded families.

The property owner was very friendly and very helpful, he didn't mind answering all of my many questions!

I would definitely recommend this property.

This gite (?) was just the job for a great little holiday in the Gironde. The house was plenty big enough for my girlfriend and I, and could fit a few more comfortably, and had more than adequate facilties. The location was ideal: close enough, ie: 5 minutes drive, to Lacanau Ocean so we could get supplies or go for a meal but far enough away to get away from the hussle and bussle (?) of village life. Also it is 5 minutes from some of the best waves in the world, right next to a golf course and slap bang in the middle of a beautiful pine forest riddled with bike tracks. We will definitely be returning. One small gripe: the bin was tiny!

Fantastic holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days in April and it was lovely. The house is not big but very comfortable with what looked like new bedroom furniture with plenty of space for clothing, the shower was good with constant ot water and it also has a new sofa bed. The kitchen area is small but functional, most of the time we were outside so didn't actually spend much time in the house. It had all the facilities we needed for a break in Lacanau!

The area is fantastic with bike tracks through the forest to the town and the lake. The residence is very quiet and relaxing, the pool wasn't in action while we were there but it looked ok.

I'd definitely book again, thanks!

The house is set in a pine forest, circa 1.5 km from the village of Lacanau Ocean, which has a large beach, and many bars/restaurants etc. The same distance away are the largest lakes in France-Hourtin, and Lacanau. Within 20 miles drive you are in the world famous wine region of the Medoc with its many Chateaux, and vineyards. Cosmopolitan Bordeaux is around 30 miles away with its many delights. A water park at Gujan Muestres is 45minutes drive away. If you prefer to cycle both Cap Ferret in the South, and Soulac in the North can be reached utilising the purpose built cycle tracks, which run parallel to the sea from the Northern tip to the Southern tip, and also one can cycle all the way to Bordeaux taking in the beauty of the pine forests and vineyards, and maybe even a sample of the local delights at a bar along the way! Further afield the Northern peninsula of Spain can be reached in three hours, or if you prefer the French side of the border, Biarritz is circa two hours away.
