Beautiful House, Great Location!

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our time in Lacanau and plan to definitely return.

The house is great - bright and roomy and very well equipped. We were a group of 6 adults and 5 children (aged 1 - 5) but never felt like we were tripping over one another. The kids particularly liked the downstairs playroom and stayed down there for hours to our delight obviously :-)

The view from the balcony is stunning and something you never tire of. We ate out there every day including quite a few barbeques.

The pool is also great and I think the fact that it is securely gated was my favourite feature. Being able to relax in the knowledge that the little darlings would have to find more creative ways to kill each other was very re-assuring.

We didn't really take full advantage of the activities on offer as we were happy to relax by the pool. The outings we had to the beach and the lake were really fun and the kids loved the pedalos with slides on the back. Highly recommend the food at Le Moutchico on the lake too.

All in all, a really nice house in a really beautiful location which we'd be happy to recommend to anyone.

Stunning location and house

  • 4 out of 5
What a great house. Just like a Swiss chalet up the hill with a great view of the lake.
The layout of the house is very good. We were two families with five children and there was plenty of accommodation for all without feeing everyone was on top of each other.
The pool is lovely and well maintained although the splinters from the decking were the only issue; however I hear that this will be replaced soon.
The fresh water lake at the bottom of the hill is amazingly clean and warm and the sea is a 15 minute drive with some great surfing and tones of parking if you go to the south beach away from the town.
Do not go shopping. Get it delivered by SuperU. The shop was crammed every time we went, so much better to do it online. Very easy
I would highly recommend this place for a restful holiday

Ein rundum schönes Haus!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir - zwei Paare mit je einem größeren Sohn - haben in der ersten Semptemberwoche eine wunderschön erholsame Woche im Haus verbringen können. Natürlich hat auch das sommerliche Wetter seine Rolle gespielt, doch haben wir uns extrem wohl gefühlt dort. Das Haus macht nicht nur äußerlich einen sehr guten Eindruck, sondern bietet auch im Inneren alle Annehmlichkeiten, die man zu mehreren Personen wünscht. Wir konnten uns ausbreiten über die zahlreichen Schlafzimmer mit je eigenen Bädern und WCs. Der Wohnbereich war gemütlich und großzügig eingerichtet. Der große Esstisch war perfekt für die Abendessen und das Frühstück fand stets auf dem großen Balkon unter den Sonnenschirmen statt.
Die Küche bot alles in ausreichender Menge, was zum Kochen nötig und hilfreich war. Der Poolbereich war super, ebenso der Grill.

Alles in allem: Dieses Haus ist nur zu empfehlen, liebevoll und mit viel Sinn und Verstand eingerichtet und groß genug für einen Urlaub mit Großfamilie oder Freunden.
James Love ist darüber hinaus ein immer erreichbarer sehr netter Vermieter, mit dem das Telefonieren und Mailen Spaß gemacht hat. Vielen Dank also für dieses schöne Ferienhaus!

Beautiful house, with a magnificent view. Spacious, all comfort, great toys and surprises for the kids. Swimming pool is lovely! We really enjoyed our week! Also thanks to James for all the information about activities at the lake and the seaside.

Great House for large groups with Children.

  • 4 out of 5
We were 3 families with 7 children in total. The house accommodated everyone really well at meal times and around the pool during the day. We all cycled up and down the hill to the house each day without any problem. Its a perfect location with easy access to the lake and Lacanau ocean. The communication with the owner was good and he made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We would definitely go back at some point in the future and would recommend to friends.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 out of 5
The holiday was a family reunion so we needed somewhere with enough space to accommodate 6 adults and 4 children (10, 7, 4 and 18months) without everyone tripping over each other and also having enough to keep everyone entertained. The house and location ticked all the boxes for everyone. The house had a great playroom for the children as well as satellite tv so that the tennis fans could keep up with wimbledon, as well as the superb pool which was heated. The views of the lake from the mezzanine balcony and the huge terrace on the main floor are amazing and we ate most of our meals out on the terrace which had two good sized tables with parasols. The house is in a very peaceful location but only a short distance from the lake, or the ocean and although near other houses the house is not overlooked at all. There are good supermarkets a short drive away and we had great fun taking it in turns to cook up different meals every night. Everyone had their own bathroom and the different levels in the house and different lounge areas meant everyone got space to relax without being on top of each other the whole time. Great holiday, would recommend this house-The owner James is extremely helpful, available to answer any questions and resolve any issues and there is so much to do, we didn't get enough time to take advantage of all the things on offer!

Within 3 km are the long sandy beaches of the Atlantic with its surf, dunes and wide-stretches of deserted beach. The house is set on a hill looking East over the lake to the rising sun and is surrounded by forests of pine, oak and silver birch. There are cycle paths to the sea and lake, beaches at the lake, sailing and every outdoor sport you could imagine. Less than 30 minutes away are the fish and oyster markets of the Basin d'Archachon and 25 minutes away are the famous wine Chateaux of the Medoc region (Chateau Margaux).

Other Activities: Kite surfing

Golf: An 18 and full 9 hole course within 3 minutes of the house by car. Both courses are cut into the pine forests and dunes. There are also two practice ranges and a 9 hole pitch and putt.
