About Elizabeth Bilney

I live in Wales with my twin boys. We spend most of our holidays in Southern France, where we have made amazing friends and have really fallen in love with the country, especially the beaches and forests.

Built in 2012 from our own design, It`s a comfortable, practical home from home.

We love Bias because although quiet, it boasts some fantastic facilities nearby. There are beautiful beaches, surf, forests, activities (high ropes/horse riding/ cycling) and a great range of easily accessible bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here.

The area is easily accessible with Bordeaux airport just over an hour away.

Why Elizabeth Bilney chose Bias

We fell in love with the area due to its beautiful, long, uncrowded beaches and plentiful surf. There are several activity centres nearby offering horse riding, paint-ball and high ropes. There are miles of beautiful forest accessible on newly built cycle tracks linking all local beaches.

Bias is quiet enough to escape the crowds, but only 5km from the nearest beach and a short drive to the lively local town of Mimizan. There is an abundance of good bars and restaurants all within a short distance. Mimizan has some lively festivals and is an interesting, friendly place.

The drive from Bordeaux airport takes just over an hour and is simple and stress free.

Perfect family location

  • 5 of 5

Me & my wife and 4 children, comfortable stayed at this lovely property, very clean and today with a fantastic pool.

All rooms are of a very good standard.

Local walks and bike riding areas are all within a few minutes. A car is a must really to shop or a beach day.

We would definitely return to this property.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing, we rented the villa as wanted to take advantage of the cycling paths, but also rather indulged in the home comforts of the villa, lazing by the pool, bbq's on the decking. We were delighted to find that the villa was really well kitted out, no looking for a corkscrew, champagne glass or rummaging around for something to read....everything had been thought of! Thank you, we hope to come back soon!

We had a wonderful relaxed stay in this fabulous house. The house was well-equipped and worked really well for two small families. The setting was lovely, and perfect for exploring the local area. The swimming pool was just the extra cherry on top of a lovely holiday! Thank you.
