The house is perfectly situated for exploring the area, especially by bike, and is in close proximity of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Bassin d'Arcachon. The house is very well equipped for 8 people, with plenty of crockery, glassware, cooking utensils, etc. to enjoy a very comfortable stay. The pool and garden, with BBQ, are very well maintained, and with shops in walking distance, we enjoyed many lazy days at the house. Exploring the area, we truly enjoyed the seafood restaurants and market in Ares and Andernos, the shopping in Lege Cap Ferret, the beach of Grand Cohort, and the many cycling paths that are easily accessible from the house. We truly appreciate the kind support received and would highly recommend this property!

                                                                                                      We chose this property because we wanted a secure pool area for our children of 1 and 4, and it did not disappoint. Indeed the pool is heated to 32C rather than the standard 29C to cater for toddlers. Another plus is the provision of a range of very usable bikes, to take advantage of the miles of cycle tracks in the area. The owners live close by, and communicated with us well to ensure that we had the right sized beds for the children in the right rooms. There is no air-con but the villa is well insulated enough to stay cool in all but extreme heat; one night we had to buy a fan for the baby's room when it had been 38C in the day. The owner reimbursed us and we left it in the villa. The owner asked for a 500 euro damage deposit on arrival; this was returned with no quibble at the end of our stay. Overall, we would come here again very happily. The owners are grandparents and have made a real effort to create a child-friendly environment.
