Pool / Spa
fabulous villa in a peaceful location
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Lacanau. The villa is so well equipped, it really does have everything you need. It is clean and the beds are comfy. The pool is fantastic and the view of the lake wonderful. The villa is in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood. The lake is down quite a long, steep hill from the villa - you may need to drive if you have lots of little children or kit. Cycling is so easy, you have to go down the hill and through to Le Moutchic to access the main cycle paths, but it is definitely worth it. We really enjoyed our week there, with lots of activities - cycling, aqua park, high ropes and 'pool time'.
Un weekend parfait
Nous avons passé un weekend parfait entre amis et famille dans cette très belle maison, accueillante, avec tout le nécessaire pour un séjour réussi !
Good location - close to ocean beach / very close to lake beach.
Nice house in quiet area, pool was excellent / well heated. Kitchen well stocked with equipment and large fridge plus additional wine/beer fridge. Wifi worked well, TV (Netflix etc...) all accessible. Highly recommend the area as plenty to do / cycle trails / walks / surfing / swimming.
Charming rustic villa in a relaxed, quiet area.
We had a happy holiday at this charming rustic villa, by far the best feature is the pool. I only give a 4 out of 5 as I think attention to detail was lacking when I compare my visits to other villas. However the owner was very attentive and the property generally well equipped.
The immediate area is quiet, but within close distance there are lots of activities. The villa is situated at the top of a hill which is quite a challenge by bike (on the return). However, once navigated the area has lots to offer by bike, usually on safe trails. We managed to cycle to Lacanau but it was the max my 9 year old would cycle. Further afield by car there is also loads to explore.
We would definitely come back to see and do more.
Thanks for your review.
great pool and a great holiday
We had a wonderful week at Lacanau Villa. The pool was amazing (the kids were in it most of the day) and the table tennis table was a great addition. The location is great, tucked away in the forest, although a bike is a must as it is a bit too far to walk to the lake with little ones.
All in all we had a great stay and would recommend
Perfect house for 8 people
The description is very good, great tips and advice is provided. The house is clean and very well maintained, nicely decorated and well equipped. Beds and matresses are good and new - we really appreciate this! The area is very calm. Pool and garden are very nice, too. I would not come with more than 8, otherwise the second bathroom might become a bottleneck. Also during great heat the Mezzanine becomes very hot. Otherwise it was almost perfect, only the Wifi stopped working on the second day and the owner could not get the local Manager to come and fix it. We would certainly recommend the place and will come back ourselves. The Lacanau area is wonderful, we keep coming back as the combination of sea and lake is unique!
Thanks for your review.
Note that the wifi has been fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience due to the provider Orange and unfortunately, not much we could do about it. I also tried to reach you a few times without success.
The house is ideal for 2 families with kids. Yet we've had groups of 10 adults staying over without any problem. It is true that the mezzanine can get warm which is the reason why we added a roof window last year.
Hope to welcome you again,
