About The Owner

We are an English couple that have lived in Fance for the past 24 years. Mark has an agricultural consultancy business and Jo is an english teacher. We have 4 wonderful children between the ages of 14 and 21 who have busy, happy lives. The greatest joy for all of us, however, is time spent at our holiday villa in Maubuisson.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Medoc area

We came across Maubuisson quite by chance when taking a holiday near Bordeaux in the Summer of 2003. We all immediately fell in love with the beautiful location and everything it had to offer. Maubuisson has the feel of a seaside holiday town 20 years ago. It has all the facilities but is not over commercialised or built up. It has a warm friendly atmosphere and a great oudoor lifestyle attitude. Everyone from toddlers to OAPs will enjoy their stay - it truly is a 'little paradise'.

What makes this house unique

We spotted our villa for sale on that first trip to Maubuisson and instantly knew it was the right one.We first renovated it in 2004 and regularly update it . It is clean, bright, spacious and very user friendly. What makes it stand out however is that it has prime location, on the boulevard, overlooking the biggest natural lake in France. No car trips or long walks to the beach, it all just there, and still only 5 mins walk from the town. We feel very privileged to be there.

Fantastic family holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Maubuisson for five years. An action packed location if you like to cycle, sail, surf, play tennis etc or great to lie on the beautiful beach - 50 yards from the house. The house is well proportioned for two families and has an excellent location. Lake is warm and safe to swim in for children whilst the ocean is great for surfing and body boarding. Bruce & Annabel
