Fantastic house in great location.

5 of 5
Two weeks with 3 kids and, although weather wasn't great this year, loved every minute. 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.
