Great house in perfect location

4 of 5
We loved staying here. We were 2 families & the space worked really well, we were so grateful for the bikes, which we used a lot. There are cycle routes everywhere & we would cycle into the local town of Maubuisson, the lovely lake at Bonbannes & to the sea at Carcan Plage.

Fabulous Holiday at Chez Resnier

4 of 5
Lovely welcome from Aude, local manager who took us through essential info key to which are fresh pastries and breads that can be ordered each morning. House spacious, airy, clean and with all amenities needed for the stay. Pool a huge hit with all of us; 3 adults, 3 children, big enough for numerous inflatables, again clean. House situated in large grounds, peaceful and quiet but within a few minutes drive of Carcans where the supermarket and local shops have everything we needed. Hired bikes, again organised by Aude, and cycled to Maubisson, slice of paradise with white sands and warm lake; cycle paths excellent and flat! Carcans Plage amazing for the surf and spectacle of protected dunes, variety of restaurants and shops but not touristy. Would definitely recommend to those who like to do something and nothing and we will probably return. Would say car is needed.
