For english summary, please see at the end.

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -----------

Having traveled around the world, we designed villa Lissdell inspired by our travels, including Ireland, Indonesia, South Africa, New Zealand and especially Australia.

The villa has a lot of character and makes you dream of distant journeys, while offering the comfort and the French gastronomy. She welcomes you for a relaxing holiday surrounded by nature. Located in the bottom of housing estate, it faces the forest of maritime pines and oaks. The Barail stream (classified Natura 2000) is a few meters and connects the pond of Moliets, nearby, to the pond of Prade de Messanges.

This villa is the ideal place to relax with family and friends. Enjoy the quiet of this vacation, and the proximity of the Landes coast and its beaches. Ideal for children, the villa has no pool, allowing parents to relax without worry. The center of the village, its shops and restaurants are accessible by bike, car or on foot (1 km).

Equipped and furnished with care, the villa of 130m2 on 2 floors (including a part in mezzanine) includes all the modern comfort:

- 4 bedrooms: 2 double on the ground floor and 2 single (3 + 2) on the first floor.

- 2 full bathrooms (spacious showers), plus an outdoor beach shower. 2 WC.

- Fully equipped kitchen with a work-meal plan, 5-burner gas cooker, large refrigerator, dishwasher and washing machine.

- Dining room with a very large table for more than 12 seats.

- Lounge with corner sofa 5 seats and armchairs, open on the forest.

- Traditional floor in maritime pine in all rooms and large tiles in wet rooms.

- Large bay window leading to the west on the covered terrace and the forest. Large windows to the south overlooking the south gallery.

- Covered wooden terrace to the south and west overlooking the 2000m2 garden and accessible forest.

- Barbecue with 2 large garden tables to the west.

- At least 3 private parking spaces, gate.

- Games: gantry for children (summer 2017) and 3 bikes made available.

- NB: No swimming pool. No box-internet, bring your 3G-4G keys. No landline.

Sports activities are not lacking nearby: bathing at the watched beaches of Moliets (3 access), Messages and beaches "wild" of the White Lette + surf. Kanoe, SUP, or sailing on the lakes of Léon and Soustons. Golf Moliets and Soustons-Plage. Walk or bike rides on bike paths near or in the forest. Horse riding, tennis. The Moliets initiatives unions, Messages and Leon have a list of all the fun activities offered by the sea and in the forest and its region, plus bike rentals. In addition to the Landes, near the Basque Country that deserves a visit. Spain also with San Sebastian and the old town.

Ideal for families, we have two little girls who love to spend time there. We have some children's material that we can provide on request. (high chair, cot, baby bath ...)

The villa has lots of character and makes you dream of distant travels, with all mod cons and of course the French gastronomy at your doorstep. She welcomes you for relaxing holidays in nature. Located at the end of an estate, she faces an oak and pine forest, inhabited by deer. At the bottoms of the garden, the Barail stream flows which links nearby Moliets pond to the Prade pond in Messanges.

This villa is the perfect place to relax with family and friends. You will enjoy the calm of the forest and the proximity of the beach. Ideal with kids, the villa does not have a swimming pool, which allows parents to relax without worrying. The village is accessible by foot, bike or car (1 km).

Built with all mod cons, this villa of 130m2 is built on 2 storey with a mezzanine:

- 4 bedrooms, 1 Queen, 1 double on the ground floor and 2 singles (3 + 2 beds) on the first floor.

- 2 bathrooms with large showers and one outdoor shower. 2 toilets, of which one separate.

- At least 3 carparks within the enclosure of the property.

- Playground for kids (summer 2017) and 3 bikes.

There are loads of activities around: Moliets (3 entrances), Messages and the White Lette. Surf. Kayac, SUP, gold windsurfing / kitesurfing and sailing on the Leon and Soustons ponds.

This was Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic, the house amazing and we had a great time. There are plenty of things to do for all of the family and it is a great base to access all of the activities such as the Adrenaline park, the bicycle trails, the River and the Lake and of course the sea. The house is finished off very well and is very comfortable. Thank you so much.

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus in der nähe der Atlantikküste

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist ideal für einen Urlaub an der Atlantikküste mit einer großen Familie oder vielen Freunden. Alles ist sehr großzügig, trendig eingerichtet und komplett ausgestattet - im Wohnzimmer mit der offenen Gallerie hält man sich gerne auf - die Terasse ist groß mit Tisch und eigener Spühle - der Garten ist riesig mit Dusche, gemauertem Grill und Rutsche/Schaukeln für die Kids. Drei Fahrräder wurden zur Verfügung gestellt, wer mehr braucht kann sie bei "Location Montier" ausleihen (direkt an der Hauptstraße am Ortseingang in Laufdistanz vom Haus, die Räder waren von sehr guter Qualität und zu einem fairen Preis). Der Bäcker in der Ortschaft (beim Rathaus) ist top und schnell mit dem Rad zu erreichen. Der Supermarkt hat alles was man braucht, ist aber etwas weiter weg (für größere Einkäufe braucht man sowieso ein Auto). Die umliegenden Ortschaften sind gut mit dem Fahrrad zu erreichen (Fahrrad-highway im Hinterland entlang der Küste). Die Restaurants im sehr touristischen Ort an der Küste waren zur Hauptsaison total überlaufen, aber in den Orten in der Nähe gibt es auch schöne Restaurants und viel ruhiger. Ja, und das Highlight ist natürlich der tolle Strand mit den Mega Wellen - auch hier mit dem Fahrrad gut zu erreichen (links an den Golfplätzen vorbei, man muss allerdings das erste Stück auf der Straße fahren da der Radweg erst weiter unten nach dem ersten kleinen Hügel anfängt) - am Strand wird man dann für die Mühe belohnt, hier ist es nicht so voll ... je weiter südlich desto weniger Leute ... dann muss man halt ein paar Schritte gehen - auch zum baden, da der bewachte Badestrand (zu empfehlen wegen der manchmal recht starken Strömung, bei Ebbe bilden sich kleine Seen zwischen den Sandbänken und dem Strand - dann ist das baden auch für kleine Kinder völlig ungefährlich) nur direkt am Eingang zum Strand ist, dort ist auch eine kleine Surfstation.

Ich hoffe die Tips helfen bei der Auswahl ... ich kann das Haus jedenfalls nur empfehlen (wir haben lange gesucht - trotz der vielen Auswahl in den verschiedenen Portalen ist das hier schwer zu toppen), wir hatten einen genialen Urlaub und haben uns gut erholt. Wenn mal wieder Atlantikküste, dann definitiv nochmal dort.

Nous avons adoré la maison en elle-même, son emplacement pour alller à la plage des chênes verts en vélo, sa tranquillité grâce à son jardin-forêt qui a été un terrain de jeu fantastique pour les enfants.

maison parfaite pour un séjour dans les Landes

nous avions prévu 1 vélo par personne pour ne pas utiliser de voiture. Toutes les commodités sont à portée de quelques coups de pédale (- de 3km). Maison extrêmement agréable et très bien équipée. Très calme car au fond d'un nouveau lotissement et en bordure de verdure. merci pour la qualité des échanges avec Marie et Audrey en amont et lors de l'accueil et de la restitution.
