The house had everything we needed and more. The local beaches are great, in particular Hourtin, where we enjoyed both the beach and the lake. We'll be back!

Two large childrens bedrooms each with 3 beds and two lovely double rooms. Really well-equipped kitchen and spacious living area. Lots of thoughtful additions that make the house a really practical living space for families, i.e., large shoe racks, tonnes of coat hooks, plenty of towel hooks in the bathrooms, outside tap for washing off sandy feet, lots of washing lines and a bike rack. An easy walk to a good surf spot or a short bike-ride to the nearest safe swimming area and town is only 5 minute bike-ride away. The owner has been extremely helpful and communication was prompt and problem-free. I would recommend bringing small fans for bedrooms in high summer - we had lots of days where it nearly reached 40 degrees and, with the shutters down at night for children, the bedrooms were quite hot. Being a fairly newly built property, shade is very limited but the garden and decking area are really spacious and lots of seating has been provided. A really practical, user-friendly house for beach living and we would highly recommend it. (6 of us stayed in total: Our family of 4 plus 2 grandparents - all very happy!)

M & Mme Mirande were very helpful and the lady (& her husband) that checked us in were really lovely and made us feel very welcome. we would definitely recommend the house to our friends and are already planning our return trip in 2017. The only thing that could have been made it more perfect would have been a kettle and some more (& bigger) mugs (for us English people to make tea!). The house was easy walking distance to the main town and a brilliant place to stay - highly recommended
