Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Hourtin - 48 Rue de Vieux Greement

A two bedroomed house with mezzanine and a spacious kitchen and living area.

Right on the edge of the largest lake in France. This eco-built modern timber constructed house (2006) is fully detached and is in a great location with wonderful views to the front. It is quiet and tranquil but is still just meters away from beaches, restaurants and activities! Sleeping up to 7 people, the accommodation has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an en suite shower room. The mezzanine can act as a third bedroom with a double sofa bed, and contains a balcony with a fantastic view of the surrounding lake! Downstairs has a spacious living area and fully fitted kitchen. The living room contains a corner sofa and an extend-able dining table and six chairs. A large decking is situated at the front of the house and contains a table that seats up to ten people, a charcoal barbecue, a parasol and two sunbeds. There is a smaller decking at the back of the house which overlooks a small private lake.

Activities are plentiful with a dedicated Watersports Centre specializing in activities such as wind surfing, sailing and kayak among others (English speaking). It is situated right on the lake beach at the port only 10mins walk away.

There is a skate park near the Port also and the whole area is covered in cycle paths...the preferred choice of transportation round these parts!

The Port area also has restaurants and bars and frequent night-time entertainment.

Great location with plenty to do. The harbour and beach at Hourtin within easy reach on bikes provided. Great places for cycling, fishing, swimming in the beach lake and boating. Lovely secluded beaches close by and Souac Sur Mer well worth a visit. Holiday home was very welcoming. It was well equipped and spacious, it had everything we needed and was very comfy with great scenery. Hope to be back in the near future.

Set in a most natural environment surrounded by nature but yet so close to all amenities, beaches, restaurants and activities. A beautiful, modern two story wooden house situated directly on the lake front and with a private lake to the rear. It is a short 10 min. stroll to the local blue flag lake beach, with its sailing, kite surfing and wind surfing schools. The lake beach is very popular with families with small children because of its relative safety for swimming. The adjoining marina boasts several restaurants and bars with frequent night-time entertainment. Directly across from the house is an island dedicated to children, 'île aux Enfants' with its playground, climbing frame and wooden fort.

Within 15 mins drive is the beautiful sea beach, Hourtin Plage. This beach can also be reached by bicycle via a 15km cycle path directly from the house (bikes provided).In short, this house is both an ideal base to discover this unspoilt area of France and a place to get away from it all. Bordeaux only an hour away, is the perfect day trip, and of course the area boasts some of the finest vineyards in the world!

The accommodation sleeps 6 to 8 people, and the best room in the house is the decking area to the front which has seating for 8 people, a BBQ and 2 sun loungers, sun parasol and the best view in town overlooking the lake and island!
