Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic house for a relaxed family holiday - we were 8 adults and 6 kids, had plenty of indoor and outdoor space, lots of bathrooms. It is a very comfortable house with a wonderful large balcony terrace with view onto the lake (it fitted us all comfortably for dinner time). The pool is absolutely brilliant (good temperature and no chlorine but a new saline technology(?))! The house is very kids friendly with a fantastic selection of toys and books (french&english), stair gates, travel cots and a fully gated pool. You have to drive to the shops and the beaches around the lake but that was no problem for us. The seaside is only 15 mins drive away. The owner James was very helpful and friendly. We could not have wished for a better place to stay and felt it was a 'little paradise'. We will definitely go back next year. Thank you James!

Beautiful House, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Lacanau and plan to definitely return.

The house is great - bright and roomy and very well equipped. We were a group of 6 adults and 5 children (aged 1 - 5) but never felt like we were tripping over one another. The kids particularly liked the downstairs playroom and stayed down there for hours to our delight obviously :-)

The view from the balcony is stunning and something you never tire of. We ate out there every day including quite a few barbeques.

The pool is also great and I think the fact that it is securely gated was my favourite feature. Being able to relax in the knowledge that the little darlings would have to find more creative ways to kill each other was very re-assuring.

We didn't really take full advantage of the activities on offer as we were happy to relax by the pool. The outings we had to the beach and the lake were really fun and the kids loved the pedalos with slides on the back. Highly recommend the food at Le Moutchico on the lake too.

All in all, a really nice house in a really beautiful location which we'd be happy to recommend to anyone.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house house everything! It is in a great position near the lake and the Sea. It in a quiet picturesque area nestled into a forest on the top of the hill with fantastic views. The pool is great, lovely size and heated so always great to get into. The house house everything - the kitchen really well equipped nothing we couldn't find. The trampoline and the table tennis were the best but so many other things no of the kids ever got bored. Owner very helpful would love to got back again.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this beautiful house. The views of the lake are tremendous. The pool was perfect and just the right temperature. We rented bikes for the week and did daily rides to the beach and bakery. The satellite tv was a bonus as were all the great facilities.

Well maintained house and gardens, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well furnished house in a beautiful location. We found the large open living area ideal for our 3 families. The range of games and toys were wonderful for our little ones. The pool and surrounding garden were great for relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed cycling around the lakes and visiting the beaches and vineyards. Fabulous!

To be Recommended

  • 4 of 5

The description was accurate with the added advantage that the pool was chlorine free,(saline system), and surrounded by artificial grass.

James the owner was helpful at all points in the process, booking through to occupation.

Property was clean , well maintained, as was the pool &kitchen well equipped.

Cycling is a great way to get around and easy to hire . The lake is about a 5 min walk(10 mins return up the hill!). The sea about 5-10 min drive.

Many other activities if the pool bores you!
