The house was easy to find and we were welcomed by friends of the owner. The house had everything you need, was clean and well kept and was as advertised. We slept well, using one of the double bedrooms. The house has a large garden, ideal for relaxing and eating outdoors and with lots of shady spots as well as full sun. We took our bikes (all the way from Scotland) and were able to cycle easily to the coasts, the many beaches and the Pointe de Grave using the network of cycle paths and country roads. Beach towns such as lovely Soulac-sur-Mer and the relaxed camping/surfing beach spot of Le Gurp are 10 minutes or so by car, but within easy cycling. Having a baker closeby in the village is a bonus, while supermarkets are a short drive away. Wildlife seen in and from the garden was a real highlight: lovely continental pied wagtails, colourful hoopoes, a nest of black redstarts fledging, a nest of swallows fledging, lovely dark phase red squirrels, jays, herons, egrets, black kites, thrushes, moths.... This was perfect for us, we would seriously consider returning.

It is beautifully decorated and furnished and has everything you need. The decking, outside eating area, hammock and pool are all fantastic. Tennis courts across the road. We enjoyed cycling to the beach every day (4k) with our 3 children, we also enjoyed the cafe at the end of the road. The local spar shop is very well stocked. The owner Nicolas is very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great holiday.
