It is ideal for 2 adults, we were 3 as our son joined us, and it was fine, if a little cosy. The garden was ideal for our 2 dogs, and the beautiful sunsets made each evening special. It is ideally situated for the beach, with a short walk to the shops and restaurants. We ate several times at both La Villa Soulacaise and Le Viet, as well as other restaurants, but the kitchen facilities at the apartment are perfect should you wish to eat in. The shower is the best we've ever found in a holiday property, with the statement "copious hot water" true. Soulac-sur-mer is a lovely resort, and we had a very relaxing holiday, not wanting to venture far from the apartment, although we did the obligatory visit to a chateau (La Tour de By highly recommended). Marjory and Hugh were very helpful in providing information and answering any questions, and we are thinking of booking again for next year. Thank you Marjory and Hugh for sharing your lovely apartment.

Everything you could need was there. The swimming pool and bar-B Q were used every day and the hot tub was welcoming! The push bikes were an added bonus as it allowed us to explore the local area without using the car. The nearest beach was 20 mins cycle ride away - but all flat! As for the location, it is in a village setting, with a local Spar shop for bread and milk etc. There is a local bar nearby which we didn't visit. The property is situated down a quiet road, with minimal noise. The only noise we heard at night was an owl hooting. There is a large Carrefour supermarket in Soulac sur mer and a Lidl, and many lovely restaurants in the resort for meals. Soulac sur mer is a typical French resort. The homeowner was very welcoming and explained how everything worked before he left us to enjoy our week's holiday. Will definitely be going back next year. We had a week in June and the weather was fantastic. We would certainly recommend this property. Bed linen is provided but take your own towels.

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.
