About Mrs Janet Irwin
David & I bought Cottage 1 when the development was first built in 1982 and Cottage 2 in 1999. Over the years we have seen many changes, but the cottages have provided wonderful holiday homes for us and our family ever since. We live in the UK in West Sussex near Brighton and run a teaching business. Lacanau is home from home and we enjoy visiting it ourselves out of season now that our children are grown up.
Mrs Janet Irwin purchased this Cottage in 1982
Why Mrs Janet Irwin chose Lacanau
We chose these properties because we love living near the sea and the lake and wanted to have a holiday base which was very French. We wanted to find an area which was by the sea and provided a healthy environment with sporting facilities to appeal to family members of all ages. The combination of the pine forest and the ocean, together with the micro climate meant that for us Lacanau was the ideal location for our healthy and relaxing holidays. Additionally these cottages are in the centre of a golf course, within walking distance of the sea and close to the cycle tracks which meander through the forest. Being only an hour away from Bordeaux, means that you are never far away from a beautiful city with wonderful facilities and much to offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sun, sand, sea and surf coupled with a micro climate.

Well Equipped Cottage in good location
The cottage was in an excellent location with regards to Lacanau's cycle paths and seaside. It was also lovely and cool and breezy on occasions where everywhere else was too hot. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need. It was not quite as clean as it could be, but acceptable.
Family Holiday in Lacanau
Five of us stayed very comfortably at the cottage during August 2009. It is exceptionally well equiped accommodation. Many meals were taken outside on the patio, including various BBQs; sardines from the local supermarket fish counters being a particular favourite. The cottage is very well maintained, and when we had a very small problem with a flush on a toilet, it was fixed very quickly.
Getting from the cottage into town is very easy and quick on bikes and the many cycle paths made it safe for everyone in the family. They even have roundabouts for bikes! We would recommend lights for all bikes when returning from the town in the evenings, as some of the routes are not well lit. We could have left the car parked for most journeys if it wasn't for the surf and body boards we carried to the fantastic surfing beaches close by.
We all had a great stay and are heading back in 2010. We would certainly recommend the cottage and location to anyone.
The Gubbins family.

Just 1.5 miles from the sea, and situated right in the centre of the Golf d’Ardilouse - a golf course which encompasses both an 18 and a 9 hole course. Set in a pine forest, the combination of the sea air and the fresh smell of the pine make this a very healthy and relaxing environment.
The cottages are about 2 minutes walk from the Club House and also the first tee and so provides an ideal location for the keen golfer. About a mile from the house there is an excellent tennis and squash complex.
