Sanguinet - a beautiful setting in South West France for a quiet or active holiday with many local attractions and much to offer all ages and tastes

Sanguinet is a picturesque village situated on the banks of the magnificent 11km by 10km Lake Cazaux-Sanguinet in the heart of the Forêt de Landes, the largest pine forest in Europe. Local archaeology dates back to Roman times and the Iron Age. Whatever passion or interest you want to fulfil, Sanguinet promises you an unforgettable holiday experience.

The perimeter of Sanguinet Lake is sheltered by pine trees providing great picnic spots and the numerous white sandy beaches on the lakeside provide clean safe bathing in warm shallow water. The scenic paths and cycle ways in the pine forests also provide great opportunities to stroll or explore.

All the necessary local amenities are close to hand including a large, well-stocked supermarket, two bakers, chemist, hairdressers, post office, tourist office, church and market. There are several friendly restaurants and cafés locally serving good food at reasonable prices.

A full range of water sports are available locally including swimming, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, waterskiing, surfing, body-boarding, diving, boating and fishing. Several local clubs offer equipment for hire and personal instruction. There are lots of leisure pursuits and facilities available locally including golf, tennis, cycling, horse riding, archery, quad-biking, karting, para-gliding, an aqua park and an aerial adventure park.

There are Music and Gastronomic Festivals, Craft Fetes and Markets, Sailing Regattas and many events locally throughout the summer. On Saturday nights during the summer, there is music and dancing organised by the local mayor in the open air in the central square, with food and drink available and a late night market.

Magnificent beaches with 10km of white sandy expanse and great surfing are but a short drive away with lifeguards in the summer supervising safe bathing and with big Atlantic breakers offering a challenge and much excitement to novice and expert surfers alike. The sand dunes nearby are truly spectacular and at 117m high are the highest in Europe.

There is much to explore in the beautiful surrounding areas including the world famous vineyards and chateaux of the Bordeaux region, with the fantastic historic hilltop village of St Emillion well worth a visit. Tasting and tours are available and you are welcome to buy direct. The border with Spain is about 90 minutes drive by car and makes a popular day trip.

                                                                Our two families had a lovely week at Villa Fougeres in Sanguinet. The layout of the villa is great, with ample space for our group of four adults and five children (3yrs – 7 yrs). We had lovely weather so most of our time was spent outdoors, and we made daily use of the pool, terrace and garden – the children enjoyed the toy cupboard! The villa is well equipped with all the essentials, and the barbeque was well used. The villa is ideally situated – the terrace and pool are not overlooked, and garden is bordered by pine trees which was lovely and peaceful (as much as it can be with five children around!). It is only a few minutes cycle into town for the daily morning trip to the boulangerie or to pick up supplies from the supermarket. What made the holiday for us was being able to abandon the car for a week and make good use of our bikes. Apart from one day trip to the Dune de Pilat (recommended – amazing views), we cycled everywhere! The lake is fantastic – small quiet beaches adjacent to the cycle path, friendly kiosks for snacks and ice creams, water sports rental and a safe environment for children to play in the water. We asked the children if they wanted to go to the sea, but they preferred to stay at the lake! We would definitely recommend the villa and the area for a relaxing family holiday, and hope to return ourselves.

A lovely property - well kitted out and maintained. We would thoroughly recommend this place, very close to the lake and very safe to let the kids out and about on their own. Shirley and Jose were great hosts and even took us out on their boat for an afternoon - one of the highlights of our trip - thank-you! David and Juliet and family

It felt like returning home, we knew where everything was and were able to have a very relaxing holiday. We had very enjoyable trips to Biscarosse Plage and The Dune of Pyla. Thank you again Seona for the use of your home.
