The pool was unexpected, very clean and quiet. The beach was only a 10 minute walk, this was ideal with two young children. The area felt safe, our children could ride around the area easily and as parents we were not overly concerned. Our kids met and played with other french children. The holiday was ideal. One we are looking to repeat again this year.

The kids loved the pool, you would have thought they were 10 not 20!, celebrating a 50th Birthday. There was space in the villa for everyone to do their own thing or all be together. The photos do not do the villa justice, it was equivalent to villas we have stayed in in Florida, only better equipped. It was about 20 minute walk into town, but it was flat so quite easy. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a large family or groups of friends. We were made very welcome by Muriel & her husband. We were very sad to leave.

Krásné tiché prostředí, velmi příjemní majitelé (i když mluví pouze francouzsky). Útulný domeček, kde je vše co potřebuješ. Nedaleko krásné město Bordeaux, necelou hodinu jízdy pobřeží Atlantiku. Nejlepší ubytování po našem putování po Francii. We were completely satisfied with the accommodation here. Beautiful, quiet area, very friendly owners (even if only speaks French). Cozy house, where everything you need. Near the beautiful city of Bordeaux, half an hour away Atlantic coast. The best accommodation throughout our travels around France.
