About the property

1 master bedroom (double), 1 twin room & 1 cabin room plus family bathroom

LABENNE is an ideal location for a family beach & activity holiday; it offers many amenities and the local beach is sandy and close to the house so that it takes only a few minutes to return home for lunch, or even to collect a new book. Bathing is supervised by lifeguards during the main season and there is also an inland Aqua Park with huge water slides and fresh-water pools with lots of fun activities for adults and children alike. The resort offers a range of other activities such as,tennis, tree-top exploration, clock golf, horse riding, cycling, trekking & roller blading, as well as surfing, beach sports and swimming in the breakers.

Local amenities include a choice of many French & Spanish restaurants, pizzerias (take away), bars and bistro cafes as well as beach BBQ’s and disco dancing for the young at heart.

There is a huge hypermarket in Labenne Ville (2km) and many shops within easy walking distance for fresh bread and vegetables, general provisions, wine (!) etc

Accommodation: For further details, including floor plan and additional photos, please visit the chalet owner's website - www.labenne.co.uk.

Atlantic Beach: The Aquitaine coastline is a 100 mile stretch of soft golden sand from Bordeaux to the Spanish border and there are championship-standard surfing beaches at the neighbouring resorts of Hossegor and Seignosse. When the tide is turning, the breakers at Labenne are magnificent (for those who are confident in water). The beach is watched over by lifeguards throughout the summer and a green flag indicates that it is safe even for the tiniest tots to play safely in the shallows (as long as they are supervised by an adult). The beach is cleaned every day of high season.

Walking and Cycling : For the more leisurely inclined, there are many forest footpaths around Labenne, whilst for those who seek a slightly faster pace bicycles may be hired locally. The riverside nature walk and cycle path from Labenne to Cap Breton is a delightful and safe route for all ages. This same woodland pathway has also been extended to the South and sightings of heron and kingfishers are common on the cycle ride to the nearby resort of Tarnos.

There is also a prestigious tennis club in Labenne where courts may be hired by the hour and, on the outskirts of the town, a riding stable offers lessons or 'hacks' depending on your standard. Finally the local game - pelotte is well worth watching especially at Grand Chistera standard.

Car: recommended

Labenne is easily accessible by air, land & sea and is quite close to the airport at Biarritz. AIR - Ryanair and Easyjet fly to Biarritz (often at bargain basement prices) and the airport is only 40 minutes away by (hire) car or taxi. Also the major airines have scheduled flights to Bordeaux and Bilbao - each is about 2 hours away by car. CAR - the drive through France from the Channel ports takes a full day and so, depending on ferry times, you may chose to break the journey with an overnight stop. The Loire valley makes a rewarding stopover since it is approximately halfway and offers an opportunity to visit the magnificent chateau/castles along the river. TRAIN - Bayonne, which is within taxi range, is on the main rail route for fast trains (TGV) and the overnight sleeper service from Paris to Spain. SEA - the ports of Blbao and Santander are used by Brittany Ferries and are only a 2 and 3 hour drive (respectively) from Labenne

Golf: There are literally dozens of first class golf courses within a 45 min drive of Labenne. The nearest championship course is at Hossegor only 10min drive to the north. It is a par 71 links course established in 1930 and includes many challenging features. Slightly further north is Seignosse which frequently figures in the top 25 Courses in Europe. It threads its way through pine forests and cork groves over steeply undulating terrain and daunting water hazards.

The 'Golf Pass Biarritz' covers 5 major courses in the area: Le Phare in Biarritz itself, Seignosse & Moliets (within 30 mins drive up the coast) and Arcangues & Bassussarry a similar distance in the other direction (within 30 mins drive southwards). All are championship courses with many challenging features and interesting contoured greens (often multi-level). The European Challenge tour is an annual visitor to Moliets which is ranked amongst the top ten courses in France

There are two excellent nine hole courses within easy reach: one at Port d'Albret (30mins) which circumnavigates an inland lake and features many taxing long holes - and also has a 'fun' driving range (using 'floating range balls) directly across and into the water; the other at Ilbarritz with a huge range area and an exciting nine hole course with half the holes situated on the cliff side with magnificant views of the Atlantic and the other half (down a steep buggy track) at sea level and featuring many water hazards.

Good value sizeable property with outside space and privacy, close to amenities

  • 4 of 5

We are a mature couple on driving tour and this property suited us very well with close restaurants, bars and a small supermarket. The beaches in the area are outstanding. There are many cycle tracks safe for families. Nearby towns are well worth a visit and despite slow traffic there was ample parking. Biarritz was a special treat for us and the central car parks not unreasonable for the security they offer. We especially liked the outdoor evening dining this property lends itself to.

Had a great holiday in Labenne

  • 4 of 5

The holiday flat is great for a family with children, as it offers enough sleeping possibilities for everyone, especially sleeping in the loft is exciting for children. The flat is within a short distance of the ocean. We enjoyed eating breakfast or supper on the terrace. We enjoyed our stay!

Enjoyable cottage and area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Labenne. Even though the weather wasn't perfect we still had a fabulous week. Near great areas to visit such as San Sebastián Spain, Biarritz, Espelette and of course Hossegor. Waves in Labenne were too big for our daughters to swim this week.

The cottage is clean and well equipped. The backyard is very well kept. Perfect for a family of 5. The only downfall is the uncomfortable sofas for our rainy days and movie nights.

The owner Stewart is very helpful and pleasant.

All in all great week,

The Martins (Canada)

Charming, relaxing, brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Labenne and loved the area. Lots of beach and regular cycle trips to Capbreton. My husband is a keen gardener and couldn’t stop himself from using the clippers to trim the hedge where some spikes had grown out of the top. When I told the owner and begged his pardon for my husband’s over-enthusiasm he sent me an extra 10€ with the return of my key deposit!

We dined out in local cafe/restaurants most evenings and must have tried at least five different places all within easy walking distance; we received excellent service at all of them and enjoyed good food at very reasonable prices. The accommodation in the house suited us down to the ground (it’s ideal for two adults and two children) and we loved sitting with a glass of wine on the patio in the late evenings after dinner. All in all we had a most enjoyable and relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Thank you CP. for your comments. I agree the house is ideal for four - whether two adults with children, or four adults; (it also works with five, but is certainly stretched with six). I'm also pleased that the local restaurants were to your liking. In season there are ten or a dozen within 1/4 ml radius.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We all had an amazing time. Exploring the local area, bike riding, beach, trip to the Pyrenees and the Olympics in the evenings watching Team GB.

Labenne was such a lovely place and the children really enjoyed themselves - both spent hours body boarding in the sea!

Place was well equipped and great communication from Stuart the owner.
