We spent over 3 weeks in this lovingly restored cottage by the owner and enjoyed every minute of it. The peace and quiet of the locality set in beautiful countryside came up to our expectations. We felt at home and our little dog was so secure. We would love to come back and stay even longer as there is so much so see and enjoy in the Landes area. This was one of the best holidays we have ever had.
The property is very spacious and easily room for 8-10 people. The facilities were excellent with a kitchen and covered eating area for outdoor dining next to the large swimming pool. The main property is large and has a kitchen and separate washing room. Outside there is plenty of grassy areas for the children to run and play in a safe closed environment. The property is surrounded by rural land and is very peaceful.
The property was very clean with bed linen and towels provided.
There is help if you need it locally as Gilbert who lives down the road came to clean the pool and provide other services as you might need (he printed off some rugby tickets for me) and is very friendly.
The property is in a great location to explore the local area - from the beaches at Biarritz and St Jean de Luz, the historic towns of Pau and Bayonne and the wine areas of Madiran and Iroudeguy. We also went further afield to San Sebastien and Bordeaux - all within 2 hours drive. It was just over an hour from Biarritz airport so the travelling days weren't too much of a pain.
There are plenty of smaller towns closer by to explore as well.
The owner is also very helpful offering guidance an assistance as required and is very responsive. It is always better to be able to tap in to local knowledge to find hidden treasures such as which are the best local restaurants or the fact there is an olympic size swimming pool down the road.
Overall we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend it.
