Pouillon Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or villa in Pouillon, France your home away from home. Pouillon, France

Pouillon lies in the green hills of the Landes department of France, around an hour from the coast and the area’s principal cities such as Biarritz. This destination, however, has little in common with the aforementioned flashy coastal resort, being a peaceful village haven that is ideal for days of relaxing in the sunshine and enjoying the beautiful surrounding countryside – pleasures that are more natural than man-made.

It is ideally situated and an easy drive to destinations such as Pau, Biarritz, Spain, and the Basque country, and there are local supermarkets and restaurants a short drive (less than 10 minutes) away. The house is large enough to sleep more, but the two of us appreciated the space, furnishings, and facilities. We enjoy food shopping at markets and there is at least one every day of the week in this area. Cooking back home is easy and if an appliance or implement isn’t available in the kitchen, the owners next door will happily share theirs. The bedroom was comfortable and all rooms are well-lit with the shutters open and snug in winter, cool in summer with the shutters closed at night. The main bathroom was large and we appreciated having a real bath/shower, as many rented accommodations only have a tiny shower. There is internet access, but the signal is week. We never had a problem though, and it was much nicer to while away our evenings playing some of the many available board games and watching seasonal DVDs on the flat screen TV. There are lots of things to do here for children, including games, a pool, the extensive grounds, and even feeding the chickens and goats. We used the fireplace every night, but for summer visitors, the river-view terrace will be equally appreciated. The sound of the river, the hooting of the owls, and the starry skies drew us outdoors regardless of the weather. Our hosts, Ian and Bernadette were very accommodating while never being intrusive. They were available if we needed them, but otherwise we had the place to ourselves. They brought us brochures of activities and events in the area, provided us with extras for our stay, invited us for Christmas drinks and canapés, and provided pleasant conversation. I would highly recommend this property for many reasons and would certainly return when visiting this area again.

We were there for two weeks in August with elder daughter, her husband and three children but we could almost have asked our other children and their families with all the additional space. Outside at the rear, there is the biggest pool that we have been lucky enough to rent in the past. Other facilities for children and adults alike include table tennis, table football, cricket net, football goal etc - very well equipped indeed. So much so that the two books that I took with me remained unread! The house was also clean and very well maintained and Vicky went out of her way to ensure that all went well and made sure that all was as hoped shortly after our arrival (which it was!). We loved the location insofar as it is in a quiet village yet a couple of minutes' walk from a local shop and a bar/restaurant, 10 minutes by car from more restaurants and 30 minutes from beaches. It's a really good base for exploring the area and it's so relaxing to get back there and to jump in the pool whatever the time. We will definitely recommend Libellule to friends and relatives and we will return.
