Very clean and some impressive outdoor furniture including a lovely hammock which was much appreciated. Although the property is on the dunes overlooking the beach with fabulous views there is no direct access to the beach - but a hundred metres in either direction will bring you to the large and very clean beach. We were fortunate to have no neighbours for our fortnight stay - but if the adjoining properties were occupied there could be some lack of privacy. Although not advertised at the time of booking it was a pleasant surprise to find there is access to free Wi-Fi. The owners could not be more helpful - they have furnished the property to a high standard which made our stay so pleasant and relaxing. Many thanks.

When we ate in, we had every meal outside! Nice town, with some nice restaurants, and lovely sandy beaches. Helpful and friendly host. We would stay again if in Mimizan.
