Superbe séjour !
La Villa est très belle, bien décorée et bien agencée. On s'y sent tout de suite très bien ! Tout le nécessaire de base est à disposition (produits de ménage, ustensiles de cuisine et épicerie, papier toilette, etc.), la maison est propre, la literie confortable. Le fait de pouvoir prendre l'apéro dans le jacuzzi en regardant le soleil se coucher, c'est juste parfait !
La vue est magnifique; le quartier est calme et la maison bien située, à proximité des cabanes ostréicoles et de la plage.
Un petit bémol cependant : le barbecue et la plancha étaient sales, il faudrait songer à les changer (nous avons passé du temps à tenter de les récurer, en vain).
Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir, d'autant plus que les propriétaires sont arrangeants sur les horaires d'arrivée et de départ, accueillants et très agréables !
Je suis ravie que vous ayez passé un superbe séjour. Nous mettons un point d'honneur à faire en sorte que votre séjour soit le plus agréable possible mais parfois il y a des détails qui nous échappent et je vous remercie donc d'avoir attiré notre attention sur l'état du barbecue et de la plancha. Nous allons remplacer la grille du barbecue et acheter une nouvelle plancha. J'espère que nous aurons le plaisir de vous accueillir à nouveau dans un futur proche.
So good we didn't want to leave...
House and grounds all very clean and well maintained with modern facilities and fresh towels and linen. Owners took special care to see us properly settled in with all that we needed. Loads to do, walking, cycling, sea-siding (on the Arcachon promenade and the wild Atlantic Coast) with great views out from the house. Good shopping, food and wine within easy reach, we would definitely recommend to family and friends.
We had a fantastic stay at this property. It is very clean and well maintained with beautiful furniture not normally seen in rental properties. The view from the deck is amazing overlooking the sea. We only used the car once to go to the supermarket and the rest of the time used bikes. we cycled to the Atlantic side for some of the best beaches anywhere in France and then walked to the local beach. we had some great evenings walking down to the local oyster huts and would drink white wine and eat oysters overlooking the bay. The table tennis and jacuzzi were a hit with the kids.
I would certainly recommend this property to anyone and will revisit in the future.
This is a great holiday house - equipped like the family home it is, loads of space, ping pong, petanque, beaches. Owners couldn't have been more helpful - even collecting my mother from the bus stop on her arrival. Situated on a very quiet street - no mean feat in high season! We particularly loved the oyster bars on the bassin just 2 minutes walk from the villa. We could eat oysters and drink cold white wine whilst the kids played at the house.
One word of warning - the Cap Ferret peninsula is spectacularly busy in August so bicycling around with kids wasn't really an option as there was too much traffic. Out of season I'm sure it is fine & the house has lots of bikes.
A place to fall in love with
We had high expectations of the villa, and the area, before we arrived, and these were more than met. We were met by the owner, who apologized for her English (which was practically perfect) and shown around the villa which has that rare quality in a holiday house of feeling like a home. The beds were very comfortable and there is plenty of hanging space, and the exceptional living room with its comfy sofas and feeling of light and space, taking advantage of the magnificent views over the basin, meant everyone could find somewhere comfortable to sit out the rain without feeling on top of each other, including the three dogs. We loved walking the dogs along the beach to Grand Piquey and to the forest nearby, and it is about a 10 minute drive to the Atlantic coast with the most incredible beach and rolling surf. We ate out at a few of the restaurants in Cap Ferret, L'Escale probably being our favourite, but the best evenings were spent around the large dining table. There are great cycle tracks all over the Cap and it was great to explore the various villages that make up the presqu'il.
We looked at various villas as we travelled around the Cap but couldn't find any to match this one.
the perfect place!
this is the most perfect property for either a get together with friends or family, or a spacious family holiday. The house has all your needs catered for along with several extras such as the jacuzzi ! We spent a glorious week with great friends and could not find fault with anything.the living area in the house lends itself to great dinner parties! The beds are extremely comfortable which is a "must".The kitchen is very well equipped as well as sociable as it is open plan.As for the outside space, you have the decking surrounding the property and plenty of seating for a large group, there is also a BBQ supplied for those balmy evenings.
The location is ideal as you are so close to the sea and the view from the decking over looking the small beach,which is less than a 5 minute walk, are an artists dream! The only negative point we found was
our week went to quickly. However this means we will have to return to repeat our
experience! Hopefully next year!! Many thanks!
You must have gone to the beach down the road which is max 5min if you walk slowly. The beach we see from the terrace is literally down the path and is 1 min from the house. It is where you can buy fresh oysters and walk back to the house with a tray full of them!
Located near Cap Ferret, our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Bassin d’Arcachon. On one side of the peninsula the Atlantic Coast provides surfing and offers magnificent sandy beaches; on the other side the quieter waters of the Bassin offer a safe place for children to play and swim. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy most water sports. Fresh Oysters can be purchased directly 50 metres from the house, down the pathway to the beach. The Ile aux Oiseaux/Bird Island which can be seen from the terrace and visited by boat is home to a wide variety of bird life. If you are still feeling energetic, there are lots of cycle paths to explore the pine forest. There are also several tennis and riding clubs. Cap Ferret village has a market and an extensive selection of shops and restaurants. Bordeaux is only one hour away by car and is great for shopping and sightseeing. You could also explore some of the region's fine vineyards. The options are endless!
