Everything was well appointed inside & out. Perfect swimming pool for young children due to the wide shallow stepped area. Lovely quiet location, but still easy to access the whole Cap area. We would certainly stay again.

We were 4 adults and 2 children and we all loved it. The heated pool was absolutely lovely. The covered outside dining and seating area is perfect for a bit of shade. The owners greated us on arrival , showed us around and left us to our holiday. We had a fault with the electric garage door which was fixed the same day. The village of Lege is a short cycle ride away and there are lots of places to visit and perfect beaches only a 15 minute drive (or slightly longer cycle) . Overall a great holiday!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

There was plenty of room and a nice garden - espeially nice was the outside covered seating where we eat our meals. Kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher and washing machine. The local beach is sandy near to the land but dont go wading as the dark sand stains as these are mud flats but there was a beautiful sunset over the little boats every night about 9 pm. The town has your usual cafes boulangerie and a little supermarket. 5-10 minutes away by bike. We didnt go to cafes here but did have icreams at the restaurant ? El Cid on the front centre which was nice. Pizza takeaway at Astropizza in town was worth the 45 minute wait as yummy! It's a great area to cycle around and we made use of the nearby cycle path and loved Adenos Le Bain which was about 30 minutes away by cycle where there were lovely shops cafes and the promenade to walk along. Archachon has lots of places to visit - traffic was very heavy around the bay as was peak season but we managed to visit Hourtin plage on the atlantic coast and the Dune de Pilat (largest sand dune in Europe)which was amazing. I would recommed this house for family holidays as it was in a nice quiet area - we did have a few booking problems as the nice owner didnt speak English and our French was stretched to read the rather lengthy French contract. The only other problem was that we didnt realise you had to bring your own linen so had to go out and buy towels from the supermarket on arrival which we could have done without (we may have missed this in the contract?) also we found the double bed mattress really awfully soft so had to use the sofabed for the week so I would recommend to the owner to change this and also provide rectangular pillows and linen to bring the home up to date. That said the house was well equipped and comfortable apart from the bed.
