Family cycling and beach

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was amazingly equipped with all you need and extras like quality bikes and a table tennis table in the garden which we used loads. There is a flat tarmac path through a forest from the beach good for all abilities and the zoo is a 15 minute cycle away. Fab holiday home and fab area to get away too.

Well equipped gite in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great stay here for us with four young children. House very well equipped and comfortable, with secure enclosed garden big enough for kids to run around in and play on the table tennis set.

House is situated 200m walk from Les Mathews village centre with excellent bakery and daily local market, also near local supermarket. Easy drive to stunning wild beaches, horse riding quad biking or miles of cycle tracks through pine forests, and house has 5 adult bikes for use too. La Palmyre is nearby too with lots of shops and restaurants and a quieter more 'towny' beach.

Great house, in great location.
