I only give a 4 out of 5 as I think attention to detail was lacking when I compare my visits to other villas. However the owner was very attentive and the property generally well equipped. The immediate area is quiet, but within close distance there are lots of activities. The villa is situated at the top of a hill which is quite a challenge by bike (on the return). However, once navigated the area has lots to offer by bike, usually on safe trails. We managed to cycle to Lacanau but it was the max my 9 year old would cycle. Further afield by car there is also loads to explore. We would definitely come back to see and do more.

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.
