About Teresa and Charles Watters
We love to holiday in France and have been doing so for many years in different parts of France. The Aquitaine region offers so much and is the area we chose to build our holiday home in 2005.
Why Teresa and Charles Watters chose Sanguinet
We fell in love with the village of Sanguinet and with its surrounding area It has so much to offer and yet is natural and unspoiled. We bought a plot of land with outline planning permission in a beautiful elevated position in Sanguinet village on the edge of the pine forest.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa has the benefit of being just two minutes from the centre of the village with all the amenities you need right at hand and a short walk to the beautiful lake with its sandy beaches and beautiful walks and bike rides. Our villa is situated in an elevated, un-overlooked location adjacent to the pine forest with lovely views. It is a very tranquil and peaceful location where you can relax and unwind in lovely surroundings.
Smoking is not permitted within the villa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great Villa, Great Location, Great Pool!
Charles & Teresa are great hosts and were very accommodating to ensure that our stay was relaxed and enjoyable. Loads of space, for our family of 5. Pool was large and safe, kids loved it. Also had a grass area where we could play cricket. Very private and not overlooked yet close enough to town that we could walk to the stunning lake. Also stunning coastal areas that were within easy reach by car. Highly recommended. Thank you.
Perfect in every way
We had a magnificent stay in this beautiful villa for a very special family holiday. The villa was perfectly layed out with everything you need and very well designed, the beds were very comfy and all areas were spotless. The pool was lovely to have use of on beautiful hot days and the outside patio was perfect for sunbathing or cooling off. Sanguinet itself is a beautiful location extremely close to many facilities and activities and Sanguinet Lake itself is stunning. We highly recommend this stunning villa to anyone looking for a perfect holiday. Full marks, we loved our stay THANKYOU
Perfect family week
We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in Villa Fougere in Sanguinet. The whole family had a great holiday. The pool at the property was greatly used as we initially had very high temperatures. The property is ideally set up for 2 families and was nicely presented. Maryline was very welcoming and between our French and her English we were shown everything we needed to know. The lake is nearby and as well as swimming, our 2 granddaughters made use of the paddleboarding on offer. A very happy week for us all.
Great stay at the villa👍
Mooi verblijf. Goede accomodatie.

Entre mer, campagne et ville
La maison est exactement comme décrite sur l'annonce: nous étions 9 et la vie y était très facile, agréable, en particulier le grand salon où nous pouvions être assis tous ensembles !
Les indications données par Charles et Teresa se sont révélées très utiles et malgré le temps mitigé, notre séjour fut très agréable, entre Arcachon, la dune du Pyla, le château de la Brède, Bordeaux et ses musées et Saint Emilion... Merci pour ce beau séjour !

Wonderful, relaxing holiday in Villa Fougeres – July/August 2017
Villa Fougeres is a beautifully located villa in Sanguinet. Situated in its own grounds with a good sized swimming pool, it was the perfect place for our family party to relax and unwind and to enjoy the wide range of local activities. We also appreciated the local information provided by the owners; this was very helpful during our fortnight’s stay.
The villa is extremely spacious, comfortable and very well-equipped, and we wanted for nothing during our stay. We were a party of 6, and the layout of the villa meant that we had sufficient space to ourselves as well as a lovely communal table by the pool at which we ate, chatted and played games. We enjoyed playing badminton on the lawn, and swimming in the pool. The pine trees and private setting of the villa gave it added seclusion, and was a great place for star-gazing at night.
The local area is full of activity; we enjoyed cycle rides round the nearby lake, fishing, two rounds of golf and trips to the Thursday and Sunday market at Parentis for amazing fresh local produce. (I would recommend a meal at ‘Chez Flo’ in Parentis). Other interesting locations include: Mimizan, Biscarosse, the Dune du Pyla and Arcachon for both beach and shopping. Our holiday took place during the fiesta of the bulls in Parentis, and we enjoyed the associated festivities which showed a slice of authentic French life.
We would highly recommend Villa Fougeres for a restful holiday in which you can choose to laze by the pool or to venture further afield in the quiet countryside of Les Landes. The town of Sanguinet is a 5 minute walk away and there are friendly local shops and restaurants (one of the bakeries made a birthday cake for our daughter) as well as a well-stocked supermarket for basics. All members of our party enjoyed our stay at Villa Fougeres and would recommend it unreservedly for a fantastic French holiday. We hope to return in the future.
