A 4 week blissful stay

5 of 5
Lovely hosts. Thank you Veronique and Patrice. A very peaceful and remote location. Lodge immaculate and fitted with everything necessary (need to remember to take your own towels). Garden was beautiful and private. The bikes were excellent and the local trails easy to find. The pool was lovely at the beginning of my stay .... 20 degrees but by the middle of October too cool for me! Main bed was very comfy, not sure about the singles. There is a good super U supermarket in Lacanau, just a couple of miles away. If you want a huge Le Clerc. 35 mins drive towards Bordeaux at St.Medard en Jalles. No hesitation in recommending Les Bambous for a peaceful holiday.

Large and somewhat clinical but great for a large group.

The staff at the site were a little unfriendly. Beware: the charge for cleaning such an expensive rental is an additional 200 euros at the end of the stay which it appears is in the small print but came as a shock to us. When you arrive, there is absolutely nothing in the villa; no salt and pepper, no soap even! The place felt very spacious and the rooms/beds comfortable although it felt a little un-homely and clinical; very few pictures on the walls and the sofas in the villa were stained and the outdoor furniture scant (eg no cushions for outdoor relaxers of which there were only 4) many of the tiles around the poolside were also loose. In a way these conditions were to our advantage, in that if everything was perfect, we would have been almost afraid to use it....as it was, we had an excellent stay and enjoyed the holiday. Just remember to leave a couple of hours to tidy and fully clean at the end (after buying all the cleaning equipment yourself!)
