We went in Oct and our party consisted of 2 couples and a friend and there were still loads of beds to spare, each room has its own toilet and shower. The villa has everything you might want, a swimming pool which is always warm enough to swim in, a sauna and a steam room, table tennis, bar football and a movie room. There are table games, dvds, high speed internet and excellent bluetooth speakers so take your iPad. The kitchen has all the appliances and utensils/crockery you might need and a large indoor dining area and separate sitting area with a large open fire although it was warm enough that we didn't need to use the heating or fire. There are laundry facilities downstairs and although we didn't need them there are lots of toys for children,pool toys/floats, high chairs etc downstairs if needed Dealing with the owners and concierge was easy and requests were always responded to quickly, the concierge even printed additional boarding passes for us at very short notice. When we arrived there was a complimentary bottle of champagne in the fridge a really nice touch. The villa has a great decking area which has seating for 12 and additional loungers and sun seats, this area looks out to the forest and you are not overlooked when using the pool or sitting out. There is also a spacious upstairs balcony to use. The downstairs area has a movie room, bedroom, and shower so would be perfect for older teenagers who wanted their own space. You will need a car as the nearest shops/sights/beaches are between 4-8 km away and the bus routes are not too close and fairly complicated to work out however the villa was so lovely we were happy to go out visiting the area during the day by car and relax at the villa in the evening. It is pretty difficult to rely on taxis if you want to go out in the evening unless your french is good, and be warned they are also much more expensive than back home, if you do book agree a price first!. We visited arcachon, cap ferret, the lake at cazaux and the pyla dune all really worth a visit. We also visited the golf club restaurant for sunday lunch which was very friendly and is a fairly short stroll away The owners were happy for us to pay the rental through home and away, we also paid our deposit through the site and it was returned by the owner via bank transfer. We really enjoyed this holiday it was a stunning place to stay and I would happily recommend it

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.
