Charming rustic villa in a relaxed, quiet area.

  • 4 of 5

We had a happy holiday at this charming rustic villa, by far the best feature is the pool. I only give a 4 out of 5 as I think attention to detail was lacking when I compare my visits to other villas. However the owner was very attentive and the property generally well equipped.

The immediate area is quiet, but within close distance there are lots of activities. The villa is situated at the top of a hill which is quite a challenge by bike (on the return). However, once navigated the area has lots to offer by bike, usually on safe trails. We managed to cycle to Lacanau but it was the max my 9 year old would cycle. Further afield by car there is also loads to explore.

We would definitely come back to see and do more.

great pool and a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Lacanau Villa. The pool was amazing (the kids were in it most of the day) and the table tennis table was a great addition. The location is great, tucked away in the forest, although a bike is a must as it is a bit too far to walk to the lake with little ones.

All in all we had a great stay and would recommend

Perfect house for 8 people

  • 5 of 5

The description is very good, great tips and advice is provided. The house is clean and very well maintained, nicely decorated and well equipped. Beds and matresses are good and new - we really appreciate this! The area is very calm. Pool and garden are very nice, too. I would not come with more than 8, otherwise the second bathroom might become a bottleneck. Also during great heat the Mezzanine becomes very hot. Otherwise it was almost perfect, only the Wifi stopped working on the second day and the owner could not get the local Manager to come and fix it. We would certainly recommend the place and will come back ourselves. The Lacanau area is wonderful, we keep coming back as the combination of sea and lake is unique!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Note that the wifi has been fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience due to the provider Orange and unfortunately, not much we could do about it. I also tried to reach you a few times without success. The house is ideal for 2 families with kids. Yet we've had groups of 10 adults staying over without any problem. It is true that the mezzanine can get warm which is the reason why we added a roof window last year. Hope to welcome you again, Kind regards.

Gorgeous house, excellent quiet area = lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in Aug 2014, two families 4 adults and 5 kids.

The house is well laid out for a holiday home and could fit us all in comfortably.

It is well equipped and has everything you would need. Nicely furnished bathrooms. Very clean

Kids loved the pool and table tennis.

(pool well looked after by maintenance people)

Area is quiet and has good bike paths all around (although up a hill to get to house)

Lacanau has large supermarket for essentials 10 min drive.

Lacanau Ocean has great beaches only 15 min drive.

A jog/run down to lake take which you can see from the house takes 15 minutes and its great for small children as very shallow swimming area with pedaloes and few tasty restaurants.

Good communications with Mr Scolas, the house instructions are very clear.

We had a great holiday here and would not hesitate to come back again.

A lovely home from home in true Canalaise style

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic first time. As we used to own a small apartment in Lacanau Ocean we were familier with the Canalaise way of life, but the house, is a trypical Canalaise property. Well appointed with good provision of necessary items the big winners are the heated pool (many of the rentals in the golf area are unheated) and the recent addition of a table tennis table. This keeps the kids outside having fun.

For those not familiar with the area, the location is spot on, near the lake and a short drive to the beach so there is pleny to do and when it is windy for the beach, it is perfect for the lake.

We used Bo and Co for the surf lessons fo the kids and the waterski school at the bottom of the drive. The local region Cap 33 programme is also great - check it out at the lake as most activities are free.

The house itself has a great veranda which is good for out door eating. All rooms have shutters for lie ins and the kitchen has all necessary items. We didnt really use the lounge, but there is ample space for all to escape each other as well as spend time together. I would definitely head back!
