About the property

4 Double Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms + extra wc, sleeps 8

Atlantic coast and lake - Bordeaux (40mins) and Biarrtiz (90 mins)

Newly built house on quiet cul de sac in Sanguinet. The house has 4 double bedrooms, 1 main bathroom, 1 en-suite and 1 WC. The lounge, dining and kitchen are open plan and there is a wood burner for winter lets. The house over looks local tennis and rugby clubs and is surrounded by natural woodland. There are bikes available to use as well as a playstation and lots of dvds for any rainy days!

There are 2 outside seating areas on the terrace (side and back) so plenty of space for everyone. A large outdoor BBQ is just off the terrace. A hot tub is available and there is a pool which is secure from small children.

It is a 2 min walk to the sandy beaches on the beautiful freshwater lake, which is warm and shallow around the edges, ideal for swimming

Also, a 2 min walk into the village of Sanguinet which has a good sized supermarket, 2 bakers, post office, doctor, chemist and five restaurants – 3 of which are on the lakeside.

Something for everyone in lovely area of France.

This area really will appeal to all ages, whether you are searching for lots of activity or just want to laze in the sunshine.

On the lake you can hire windsurfers, sailing boats (lessons/sail school are also available at the sailing school), paddle boats, water skis or take your own (power boats are subject to a weekly charge) - every conceivable type of water activity is on the doorstep

There are 3 slipways which are free, and there is space to store your boat on the side of the house.

The ocean surfing beaches at Biscarrosse Plage are approximately 15 minutes drive away, where surf schools are available.

The dune de Pilat is a 20 min drive and gives amazing views over the Basson D'Arcachon..well worth the many steps to the top!

For the more adventurous there are many local activities inc horse riding, river canoeing, archery, high ropes adventure, water park etc.

There is a specially constructed cycle track around the lake, and many cycle paths through the forests as well as long rides for serious cyclists.

You can eat oysters in Arcachon, and taste the wine in St Emilion and the Medoc. Sample the shopping in historic Bordeaux, (a UNESCO World Heritage site) with its newly pedestrianised streets, and magnificent floodlit architecture provides the more cultural attractions. To the south lie the surfing beaches of Mimizan Plage ; Biarritz, with its associations with the 1930's jet set; and picturesque St. Jean de Luz. Or you could pop over the border to Spain, and visit beautiful San Sebastien, the capitol of the Basque country.

About Mr or Mrs Bleakman

We have 2 boys and have holidayed in this area for many years, firstly in a Motorhome then we bought a mobile home and now have had a house built It was finished in 2012.

There is so much to do with the lake and the beaches so close, also we have a speed boat that we keep on the lake and we spend many many hours enjoying the many aspects of boating in Sanguinet.

Mr or Mrs Bleakman purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Mr or Mrs Bleakman chose Sanguinet

We chose a plot of land that was between the lake and the shops and that overlooks both the tennis and rugby clubs - which allows us to sit and watch the sports during the day, but enjoy peace and quiet on the evenings.

We had it built to suit us - it has 4 bedrooms and 3 toilets! We also have a wood burner and hot tub so we can enjoy the winters as well as the summers.

What makes this bungalow unique

3 toilets, hot tub, wood burner

Ideal for Bristish holiday makers as we have English satelite and games a kettle!

French satelite also available!

A super week

  • 5 of 5

We wished we were staying for longer! The Bleakmans had thought of everything we could possibly need. Comfortable beds, 5 bikes, so much sports equipment , a very well equipped kitchen and utility room, space for 8 of us to eat inside and out, a BBQ and of course the pool. 5 minutes walk from a lovely lake, perfect for small children to swim in and with water activities and 20 minutes drive from great surfing beaches.

Another wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have stayed here. The house is still in immaculate condition. It felt like returning home, we knew where everything was and were able to have a very relaxing holiday. We had very enjoyable trips to Biscarosse Plage and The Dune of Pyla. Thank you again Seona for the use of your home.

Wonderful holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this lovely house from the beginning and love it so much we return each year. The facilities are great and the area offers so much, with hot tub and pool, wonderful deck to sit out and have a quiet read, play table tennis or bbq and eat while the sun sets. The bird song in the morning is a d

delight to wake up to and we always hear the cuckoo before they arrive n England. The local shops and market are excellent and we will continue coming and bring our friends. R&T

Excellent house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an wonderful holiday, with 3 young adults 20-22 years of age to occupy the lake, kayaks, bikes, pool and hot top they were easily amused! The house was perfect with everything we needed. And it had the added advantage for us cat lovers, 2 cats and 2 kittens - although they were 'wild' they were friendly enough to give us hours of entertainment!

We would all highly recommend this home. Thank you Seona for a lovely holiday!

Spent a lovely 2 weeks in villa Bleakers. The villa is really well laid out, furnished tastefully and has all the comforts of home. The village of Sanguinet is pleasant with few nice bars and restaurants. The lake is beautiful and offers all sorts of water activities and little beaches where you can sit and whatch the spectacular sunset. I thoroughly recommend Villa Bleakers both in and out of season! The owners have taken great care to make their guests feel comfortable so that the holidays can be enjoyed. I would definitely go back time and time again. M Hards Bristol

Brand new house located in the lovely village of Sanguinet on the Gironde/Landes border in Aquitaine, South West France. Sanguinet is in an extensive pine forest (national park) and has a very big and beautiful lake with plenty of safe, sandy beaches. It is also only a short drive to the Atlantic Coast, where there are an abundance of beaches, some secluded and better for swimming, some perfect for surfing and body boarding.

The Bassin D'Arcachon and dune de Pilat are a 20 minute drive. Bordeaux Airport is about a 40 min drive and it is a comfortable car drive from the ports of St Malo and Caen (about 6-7 hours). Alternatively, Biaritz airport is about 90 mins away. There is a rail service to Bordeaux, Arcachon and La Teste, a 15 minute drive. The Spanish border is about 90 minutes drive making it a comfortable day-trip to visit Spain.
