Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Pia's house. We were 6 adults and 3 children & we really felt like home :)

The owner answered all of our requests from the beginning and was always available and flexible. The house is beautiful and functionnal. Perfect also for babies as there is a cot bed & high chair.

The house is in a very quiet district. Close to everything: shops, Hossegor, Capbreton to buy fresh fish everyday....

I hope we will be able to come back.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another family, and had the most wonderful week. A perfect sized house for our two families. Everything is in good condition and plenty of space for all. Great spot close to the beaches and markets of the area, also fab shopping spots of Biarritz and Bayonne. A perfect holiday house. Hope to return!

Fabulous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very warm and welcoming. It seemed exactly like what it was - someone's home. We felt very comfortable and relaxed very quickly. We'd definitely go again in a heartbeat. Spent a lot of time in the splendid, spacious garden ...

Great surrounding area, as well, just a short hop to Biarritz and only a slightly longer one to Bordeaux. Couldn't recommend this holiday destination any more highly.

Brilliant property in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious rustic house in a great vicinity. Stayed with a large group exploring the area and playing golf on the many courses nearby. Bedrooms are large and the kitchen living area was great for entertaining in the evening. Lovely pool area for relaxing and many good restaurants close to the property. Hope to go again next year.

Fabulous Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a perfect week in September. The weather was glorious and lots for all of the family to do - wonderful beach, lovely pool at the house, stylish shopping in Biarritz and Bayonne, fabulous local restaurants and top class golf courses - all this in close proximity to the lovely, well kept and equipped property. In short - a perfect family holiday.
