About the property




'Flip Flop' has been our holiday home since 2007. It is a privately owned, three bedroomed, detached villa with heated pool just 800 metres from the beach at Moliets Plage in South West France.

It is the ideal holiday house for couples and families and suits those who simply want to relax by the pool or on the beach, or for those who prefer to be more active - surfers, golfers and cyclists are well catered for in the area. It makes a great base for those who want to explore the area, with the Pyrenees, northern Spain (San Sebastian, Pamplona and Bilbao), Biarritz, Bayonne and Bordeaux all possible as day trips.

'Flip Flop' is ideally located for the beach - it is less than ten minutes by foot, even with small children! - and with the golf course, shops and restaurants within 500 metres, it is an easy walk to all facilities. Nestled among the pines in a quiet residential area, yet in the heart of the village, the villa stands in a fenced garden of just over 600 m2.

There are three bedrooms, one with a large double bed (160cm x 200cm), one with a standard double bed (140cm x 190cm) and the third with one single bed and bunk beds (all three are 90cm x 190cm). All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with a hanging rail and shelving. The bathroom has a large shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. Additional separate WC.

The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric hob, electric oven, and place settings for 12 people. The kitchen leads onto an open plan dining and living area with an extendable dining table and 6 chairs. The living area has two leather sofas, a coffee table, TV unit with stereo, DVD player, television (French satellite channels) and SONOS system. Large sliding glass doors open onto the covered terrace.

Other facilities include a barbecue, washing machine, tumble dryer and clothes line. The house is well equipped for small children, with two high chairs, a baby bath, and one travel cot. There are also plastic plates, bowls and cups, toys, books and games.

Outside, the 8 x 4 metre heated swimming pool (built June 2013) is surrounded by decking with plenty of space for sunbathing. There is a heated outdoor shower so you can wash the sand off before jumping in the pool.

The covered terrace is an ideal location for the garden dining table and chairs in the heat of the summer, which can also be placed on the wooden decking in spring and autumn when it's not so hot. There is a selection of deck chairs and folding sun loungers.

NB The swimming pool is heated during the summer months (from May to September, or longer if the weather is good). Please note that if the air temperature is low we cannot guarantee the water temperature!

The house is ideal for families or two couples. No large groups of adults please.

** From the beginning of November until Easter, the swimming pool will be closed. **

** From 2019 guests will also have to pay the local taxe de séjour of €1.12 per adult per night. **

A fantastic 10 day holiday at Flip Flop

  • 5 of 5

I think whether you want a fun filled family holiday or a vacation of peace and tranquillity, then Moliets and Flip Flop can cater for both.

We fell into the latter category and have fallen in love with the villa, the resort and its people.

The accommodation was spotless and well equipped with everything catered for. The villa is close to the beach, shops and restaurants, but yet in such a very quiet location.

Ellie ensured we were well informed from the initial booking right through to our last day.

In summary a fantastic holiday which met all our expectations and more.

We look forward to returning.

A very well equipped house - the owners have literally thought of everything including masses of children's toys. Great spot from which to walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, golf course, bike hire etc. To have the pool (heated) was the icing on the cake! A truly brilliant holiday home. Thank you for having us.

A beautiful villa in an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Flip Flop in late September. We couldn't have asked for more - the villa has everything you could ever need: plenty of kitchen equipment for the nights you want to cook at home, big sofas, a lovely dining area and very comfortable bedrooms. All this before we've even mentioned the pool - a real highlight of our stay.

It's a short stroll (or bike ride on the very cyclist-friendly paths) to the shops and beach. Close enough to hear the waves crashing!

We'll certainly be back.

Another fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

We just love this place. My husband says it's like a little sanctuary! It's our third visit and we don't go anywhere twice! The house is well equipped especially if you've children. There are so many places to visit nearby but we barely go further than the beach, pool & golf course. We love all the bike trails. Can't wait to go back next year.

Beautiful villa with heated pool in great location near to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and very well equipped villa in a very peaceful location yet only 10 mins walk from the wonderful surf beach and restaurants and shops of Moliets. The lovely heated pool and pool deck kept us close to home for several days but we also used the owners' helpful tips to eat some great meals out, have surf lessons, go bodyboarding and do a big day out to San Sebastián in Spain. Lots more to see and do locally but we only had a week. Hugely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday.

Lovely house in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic time in Moliets at Flip Flop. Its a great house that was perfect for parents, kids and grandparents. Its a well equipped and clean house, with a lovely heated pool, a big shady veranda, in a nice quiet area and is only a short dander to the beach, cafes and restaurants. We would definitely look to come back again.

Car: recommended

Moliets is well known for its golf course (one of the top ten courses in France), and the beach is famous as one of the best surfing destinations in Europe. There are footpaths and dedicated cycle trails through the vast pine forest, and a nature reserve at the Courant d'Huchet, which runs from Léon to the sea just north of Moliets.

Further afield, Hossegor (30 km south) is renowned for its world class surfing; as is the elegant town of Biarritz. Also within easy reach are the stunning Pyrenees, and the Spanish splendour of San Sebastian. To the north are the Arcachon basin, Bordeaux and the wine producing areas.

NB we can provided guests with a discount code for Brittany Ferries, please ask.
