Owner is lovely and responsive with communication. House is nicely fitted out. No bath and only 1 shower but this was no problem as kids loved the outdoor shower :-) Location is good with amazing beach in walking distance for bodyboarding and surfing and a quiet lake beach a 5 mins drive which is safe for smaller kids. Carcans Plage has a small supermarket and plenty of bars and restaurants. Overall a great holiday.

It was very clean and everything was in good working order. As we were in France, a country renowned for it's food, we thought we would have eaten out more, but we were there for 9 days and only ate out once as the accommodation had all we needed to cater for ourselves, this was great as we were on a limited budget. A decent Carrefour store for the main groceries is only about 5 km away. The upside of the area was that it was a beautiful place, and quite quiet due to being the end of the season when we arrived. We were able to relax and there was plenty of beach by the lake to share. The downside was, it was the end of the season... which means not all of the shops and restaurants were open, and when we had a few days where it rained heavily, we found there was little to do. I would recommend this accommodation and would like to return there again but perhaps earlier in the year, during the summer season. it was a short walk to the lake, and lots of walks and cycle ways to keep you active. We are not water sport people, but there was plenty to do if you do like that sort of thing. Paddling was ideal for everyone in the lake, even toddlers could paddle out quite a way in the lake due to the shallow areas. One further note. We found it was very French and our French is very limited, but even where no English was spoken the people of the town could not have been more friendly and helpful.
