Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Hourtin

A few yards from the biggest French Lake, Peaceful holidays close to Nature

Comfortable and nice family wooden cottage for 6 to 7 people, with 2 bedrooms and 1 mezzanine (TV room with convertible sofa for 2), 2 bathrooms with shower, 2 toilets, 1 fitted open kitchen, 2 wooden terraces, one in the front and one completely private at the back on the forest (birds and does can be seen from there), located a few yards from Hourtin Lake and 'L'île aux enfants' (Natural Park for kids), 500 metres from Marina, 2 kms from town centre, 10kms from the sea, in the heart of the Médoc area well-known for its Wine Châteaux, 20kms from Lacanau and Golf Club, 60Kms from Bordeaux Mérignac airport.

Tourist attractions: Perfect for family 'Nature Holidays'.

Water activities for adults and kids by UCPA (Hourtin Marina and Lake Beach) or Club de Voile d'Houtin Médoc (CVHM) inj Piqueyrot. A lot of cycling paths available: one is close to the house and going up to the beach/ocean (15kms).

La Lagune de Contaut (6kms) is worth seeing for the plants and animals typical of the area (marsh). You can also walk long distances from Piqueyrot on one of the paths of 'Chemin de Compostelle'.

Market 3 times a week in Hourtin near the Church with local products.

Nearby are little towns like Montalivet (15Kms) or Soulac (60kms) with a possibility to take the ferry to Royan.

Bombanne resort near Carcans is quite famous for all its water activities too.

Many other activities are suggested at the Office du tourisme d'Hourtin at the Marina near the restaurant.

Great combination - peace & quiet but plenty to do

  • 4 of 5

We spent a great two weeks in Hourtin. The holiday was very relaxing but there were a lot of activities on offer in the area, which made having two teenagers in tow extremely low maintenance! The chalet is in an excellent location for the lake and local beaches and is very comfortable: clean, tidy, and well kitted out. The boys just disappeared on their bikes for hours at a time.

The Isle des Enfants is a short walk away, with activities for all ages; likewise the lakeside beach, next to the port, with its pedalos, catamarans and dinghies for hire. The lake is perfect for learning to windsurf as the water is very shallow. The lake beach was clean and suitable for young children. Hourtin Plage, on the coast, is a cycle ride away, with excellent facilities for surfing and body boarding. You can hire everything you need if you don’t have boards or wetsuits with you.

In the evenings, Hourtin port has a reasonable choice of restaurants, if you don’t feel like driving anywhere. The Brasserie was our favourite.

There’s a small supermarket in the port for groceries, although we tended to cycle or drive to the village, where there’s a greater variety of shops and a regular open air market.

Slightly further afield, our teenagers really enjoyed the paintballing, go-karting, bowling and a tree top adventure centre (similar to ‘Go Ape’).

We would definitely recommend the Chalet to any family and the area of Hourtin is perfect for all ages.

Vacances ideales en famille

  • 5 of 5

La location est conforme au descriptif, l'endroit est vraiment ravissant, proche de l'île aux enfants et du lac ( top avec des ados! ), mais suffisamment éloigné du bruit ( top si on veut se reposer!)

Rien à redire, la maison est jolie comme tout, les pistes cyclables nombreuses, on peche a quelques metres, on se baigne en un coup de pedale!

Il y en a pour tous les goûts.

La propriétaire est , en outre une hôte charmante, soucieuse de notre confort et arrangeante. Les voisins sont egalement fort sympathiques.
