About the property

Surfing the waves at La Cabane

This small charming spot is steps from Lake Maubuisson.

Cottage is located 200 m from Lake Maubuisson (blue pavilion) and 2.5 km away from the ocean. The exotic exterior decoration and charming interior drew us to La Cabane.

La Cabane offers year-round simple, welcoming and astute comfort.

Interior fittings are brand new and functional. Each area optimizes space.

On the ground floor: living space with dishwasher (plenty of new dishware), console with flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, DVD player, CD, sofa, table, and chairs. Kitchen is equipped with ceramic hobs, refrigerator with freezer compartment, oven, microwave, electric coffee maker, toaster, kettle, and various cooking utensils.

The bathroom includes shower, WC, bath towels, hand towels, bathmats, storage space and more.

Upstairs, the bedrooms meet the highest comfort expectations with quality bedding and abundant storage space. The décor is uncluttered with many wood decorations painted white to create a tranquil atmosphere.

Enjoy in and outdoors with the living area opening on a large wooden terrace, easy to live in, no close neighbours, south-facing, and shaded patio perfect for outdoor lunches. Enjoy the coffee break area near the barbecue, the dining area with large wooden table, double benches and chairs, and the relaxation area with two sun loungers and umbrella.

The terrace is decorated with shells, star fish, anchors and boat floats. The nautical colour scheme includes rusty red and white. Tropical plants make you dream of distant horizons.

Inside this surfer's cottage various amenities are available for your use, including a washing machine, laundry basket and different tools for cleaning and ironing.

Ideally located in a quiet apartment building, La Cabane is only 200 m from the lake and 800 m from the city centre. A parking space is available in front of la Cabane.

The location is ideal for recharge your batteries, enjoying yourself and exploring the area. You are sure to find an escape.

You will not have to travel far to cast off, surf the waves, or cruise Lake Maubuisson and the magnificent Atlantic beaches.

Various activities nearby:

1) Water sports: surfing, sailing, windsurfing, canoe-kayak, parasailing, catamaran tours, and water skiing.

2) Outdoor sports: adventure trail, paint ball, mini golf, rock climbing, horseback-riding, and cycling on numerous bicycle paths (120 km).

3) Activities for children: boat clubs, beach activities and multi-sport clubs, and merry-go-around.

4) Visits and tours in the area (vineyards, castles, and artisan shops), with a different theme every week.

5) The city of Lacanau and ocean are 15 minutes away. Cap Ferret is a 30-45 minute drive.

the perfect house for a young couple!

  • 5 of 5

Last September we spent two beautiful weeks in this small, but beautiful house. everything was well organised and perfectly clean. In the kitchen we found everything we needed in order to cook, even coffee, marmelade, honey and a sweat present from the owner.

Thanks to very warm and sunny weather we always enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the terrace. Each morning we cycled to the sea, it took us about 30 minutes with our bikes. You can rent these right in the village.

The beach wasn't crowded at all, although there were many surfers at that time.

All in all, our vacation could not have been any better!

Clean and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Maubuisson is a beautiful place, great for kids & great for those who love cycling or water sports. This property is only 300m from the lake edge - so walkable in 5 mins. The property was very well presented, and Nathalie was very welcoming. It is compact as described, but has a nice spacious outdoor decking. I would only say the stairs may not be suitable for very young children or the elderly as they are quite steep but my 5 yr old had no problems with them.

Owner's Response: A big thank you for this nice appreciation. I was thrilled to get to know your small very friendly family. The nearby lake, bike paths, various water sports available nearby, with two little boys at a young age you have to enjoy your family vacation in a house "The Cabin" equipped with every comfort. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to return to our beautiful Aquitaine region. I welcome you again with pleasure. See you soon I hope ... Nathalie

Très belle découverte

  • 5 of 5

Destination idéale pour des vacances en famille avec de jeunes enfants...

La location est tout à fait conforme à la description, pleine de charme et située au calme à l'orée d'une jolie forêt. A proximité immédiate du lac et des petits commerces et pas très loin de l'océan, la situation est parfaite.

Et pour ne rien gâcher, contrairement à la majorité des locations, vous trouverez à votre arrivée absolument tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour commencer le séjour !

L'accueil y est en plus très adapté, la très sympathique propriétaire des lieux vous expliquant tout ce qu'il y a à savoir sur le coin !

A recommander, donc

non pas vraiment

  • 1 of 5

la cabane est très bien située par rapport au lac;par contre :absence de bonde dans la baignoire;absence de support pour une utilisation douche;lavado inutilisable;plan de travail inexistant pour la kitchenette:les appareils électriques cotoient la vaisselle humide;

la pièce de vie est minuscule :il faut déplacer la table à chaque fois que l'on veut manger à l'intérieur;cette location convient à 2 adultes + enfants en pleine saison quand il est possible de prendre tous les repas dehors

Location idéale pour séjour relaxant

  • 5 of 5

Nous, une famille avec une petite fille de 3 ans, nous sommes bien plu à la cabane. Nathalie, la propriétaire a du goût: Tout dans la maison concorde, de manière qu'on se sente bien à l'aise. La terrasse est ravissante - protégée du vent et des regards, on est pour soi.

Natalie est une hôtesse qui pense à tout. Elle nous a fournis des produits régionaux en arrivant et nous a recommandés des locations propres à visiter avec un petit enfant. Nous étions très contents.

un havre de paix bercé par le chant des cigales

  • 5 of 5

Venez chez Nathalie vous serez accueillis chaleureusement dans une jolie maison confortable ,décorée avec gout , où rien ne manque (même des petites surprises en cadeaux ).Vous découvrirez un endroit situé au bord d'un lac à l accès facile et très rapide à pieds , avec une plage non dangereuse pour les enfants , une eau plus calme et plus chaude qu'à l'océan , avec animation et possibilité de cours de natation et autres ..

Si vous prenez votre véhicule vous n'êtes pas loin pour découvrir le Bassin d Arcachon et encore plus près si vous aimez l'équitation.

Depuis plusieurs étés nous revenons ici avec les enfants et c est un véritable plaisir pour tous chaque fois !!
