The surroundings are stunning and the villa immaculate, with everything that you could possibly need. Everybody loved the fact that it was so close to the beach and Le Moulleau, and the villa has fantastic communal space for everyone to enjoy. I was also so well looked after throughout the booking of this villa, the owner couldn't do enough, she is a wonderful woman with great taste! I would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone wanting to have a special stay in a beautiful part of the world. Thank-you so much! Claire.

In particular we were impressed with the customer service, feeling very welcomed and catered for.

The apartment is in a beautifully quiet residential area and only a short walk to the beach and also the sand dunes are in walking distance of the property. The owners are both very friendly, charming and willing to help at all times. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in this area. The area is beautiful, the beaches are sandy and well maintained. The sand dunes are amazing walking to the top is good exercise on the legs but well worth it. We would just like thank Claude & Muriel for their wonderful hospitality and making our stay in Pyla Sur Mer very enjoyable.
