Villa on Gironde/Landes border, France: Villa Fougères is a beautiful villa set in an acre of land in a superb elevated position on the edge of a pine forest. It is in a tranquil private spot, a few minutes walk from the centre of the village and close to the stunning lake. Biscarosse Plage, famous for its 10 km of white sandy beaches and big surfing waves, is a short drive away. The well furnished villa has a modern well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and during the hot weather the wooden shutters and double-glazing ensure it remains cool inside. A spacious open-plan living and dining area, together with four large bedrooms and separate bathrooms, provide plenty of space for up to two families to relax.

Villa Fougères is in the perfect location for a superb holiday offering fun and a great experience for every member of the family.

Sanguinet's beautiful setting and rich amenities: Sanguinet is a picturesque little village in the heart of the largest pine forest in Europe on the banks of the magnificent lake of Cazaux-Sanguinet, which measures 11km long and 10km wide. All the necessary local shops and amenities are close to hand including good-sized local supermarket. Several local restaurants with good food at reasonable prices are within easy walking distance. The scenic paths and cycle ways provide great opportunities to explore the local area. There are numerous white sandy beaches on the lakeside sheltered by pine trees and with safe warm bathing in clean fresh water. Water sports and activities are available locally including canoeing, boating, water skiing, windsurfing and fishing. There are several sailing clubs with instruction available. The local archaeology dates back to Roman times and the Iron Age. Whatever passion or interest you want to fulfil, Sanguinet with its dreamlike surroundings promises you unforgettable times.

Bisca' Plage, Bisca' Ville and surrounding area: Biscarosse (a short drive by car) has much to offer and is a real hive of activity with a wide selection of interesting shops, restaurants and cafés. The magnificent beach has 10km of white sandy expanse with lifeguards supervising safe bathing and with big breakers offering challenge and excitement to novice and expert surfers and body-boarders.

There is much to see and discover in and around the area and many different facilities and activities on offer including golf, horse riding, boat rides, nature trails, sand yachting, diving and several local leisure and adventure parks. The enthusiastic and friendly staff at the local Tourist Information Centre can answer all your enquiries.

The sand dunes at nearby Dune du Pyla are absolutely spectacular and at 117m high are the biggest in Europe.

Arcachon is 20 minutes by car with lovely beach, harbour and fashionable restaurants and shops. There is a great boat trip around the lovely Bassin D'Arcachon including a visit to Cap Ferret.

Bordeaux, the vineyards and other things to do: Bordeaux (40 minutes drive) is a beautiful, historic and lively city with much heritage and lots of amenities. There is something for everyone from shops and theatre to harbour-front, magnificent Gothic cathedral and beautiful architecture. The old quarter featuring narrow streets and medieval gateways houses the local artisans' shops.

There is also much to explore in the beautiful areas surrounding Bordeaux including the fantastic historic hilltop village of St Emillion. The world famous vineyards and châteaux of Bordeaux are in abundance in the region and many offer tasting and tours and welcome you to stop and buy direct.

A visit across the border to Spain is about 90 minutes drive by car and makes a popular day trip.

There is a local Jazz festival in Sanguinet in July and other Gastronomic, Flower and Craft Fetes and Sailing Regattas in the area throughout the summer. The local mayor of Sanguinet organises dances and fun in the open air on Saturdays during the summer.

About Teresa and Charles Watters

We love to holiday in France and have been doing so for many years in different parts of France. The Aquitaine region offers so much and is the area we chose to build our holiday home in 2005.

Why Teresa and Charles Watters chose Sanguinet

We fell in love with the village of Sanguinet and with its surrounding area It has so much to offer and yet is natural and unspoiled. We bought a plot of land with outline planning permission in a beautiful elevated position in Sanguinet village on the edge of the pine forest.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has the benefit of being just two minutes from the centre of the village with all the amenities you need right at hand and a short walk to the beautiful lake with its sandy beaches and beautiful walks and bike rides. Our villa is situated in an elevated, un-overlooked location adjacent to the pine forest with lovely views. It is a very tranquil and peaceful location where you can relax and unwind in lovely surroundings.

Great Villa in a lovely area

  • 5 out of 5
Our extended family of 7 (4 adults and 3 children) enjoyed a fabulous vacation at this villa in Sanguinet. The village is perfect for families with good amenities, a lovely, safe lake beach within 10 minutes walk from the villa and great cycle paths. Sanguinet is also very well located for the Bordeaux wine region, historic chateaux and the famous Dune du Pylat. The villa was wonderful, incredibly spacious both inside and out and with a delightful pool and shaded terrace. We highly recommend a holiday at this villa.

Great villa in a lovely location close to lake

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much for a fantastic 2 weeks at your villa in Sanguinet. The villa is set in a quiet location just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the village, which has a good size supermarket as well as a selection of small shops. The villa itself is very well equipped, especially in the kitchen, and kept nice and cool throughout our 2 weeks in France. The villa has a light and spacious feel and never felt crowded even when all 8 if us were inside. The swimming pool was a big hit with the kids, and the soft lining was a real benefit as there were no stubbed toes from broken tiles which is usually the case. We had a great 2 weeks by the pool, at the lake (where the kids loved the warm, shallow water) and the beach at Biscarrose with its energy and surf. We would definitely return to the villa and would highly recommend it to families

Our second great holiday at Villa Fougeres

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit, having stayed here for the first time two years ago. The villa is extremely well equipped with everything you need whilst on holiday and lots of outdoor games etc for kids to play with. It very comfortably accommodated our two families together. We rarely return to exactly the same place for a second holiday - but this place is so well located, just a few minutes drive (or a slightly longer walk) from a beautiful lake and in an area where there is so much to do for children - that it was an easy decision to return. It is a very easy walk into the small local town with great boulangeries for the morning croissant shopping - and twice a week it has a market selling fresh local produce. The lake is just beautiful and the house is not far from the coast either - making it just ideal.
In summary - a great place to stay and the pool was well used every day too!

Hong Kong expat family

  • 5 out of 5
We travelled to Sanguinet from our home in Hong Kong and stayed at the Watters' villa for one week in early July 2011. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to go back. We have three young children (aged 7, 5 and 3 at the time) and this house was ideal for them. There is a good-sized garden which is great for ball games and a lovely pool. The house was modern, clean, well-maintained and had everything we needed for our holiday. The only (minor) exception was the lack of a toaster but we mentioned this to the owners and understand that this is now provided! We have great memories of family meals sitting at the long dining table in the living room or outside by the pool. The villa is very convenient for the local supermarket which is 2 minutes away by car or 10 minutes by foot. There is also an interesting little market near the church in the centre of town. We made good use of the bicycle shop located 5 minutes walk away from the villa. Although there is not much to do in the village itself, there were a couple of decent restaurants by the lake which is either a 5 minute run in the car or a 10/15 minute walk. One particular highlight was the walking/cycling trail and also the lovely little sand beaches, stretching along the beautiful Lac Sanguinet. All in all, this was a great place to spend our holiday in France and would have no hesitation is recommending it to others.

Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
"We very much enjoyed our stay in the Villa. We were 2 families with children aged 5,8 and 10.
The children loved the pool as it was ideal for them to swim and play. The property allowed for sufficient space for the kids to run around and play whilst we were enjoying the barbecue.
The villa is perfect for two families as the location of the bedrooms allows for sufficient privacy. Kitchen and utilities are state of the art and the living room provides enough space if the weather is poor.
The village itself is in walking distance with a nice market once a week, two good boulangeries and a restaurant which provides a great mix of child friendliness and decent french food.
The lake is a 10min walk away with nice beaches for the kids to play.
Score 5/5 "

Villa Fougères, Sanguinet

  • 5 out of 5
The Villa was perfect for our summer holiday and our party of nine (including two small children) felt at home as soon as we arrived.
We loved the light and spacious design of the house and we made full use of the delightful garden and pool. At night we especially enjoyed stargazing on the sun loungers and we witnessed our first shooting stars, which was thrilling.
The location was ideal; quiet and secluded but close to the village, lake and nearby beaches and the arrival of the circus and jazz festival were added bonuses.
We had a truly memorable fortnight at Villa Fougères and would have no hesitation in recommending it. It caters for all ages and a range of interests.
