About Ken Walsh

Professional Engineer

Ken Walsh purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ken Walsh chose Biscarrosse

We bought the land 12 years ago on holiday after falling in live with the area.

We then had the villa built to our specification.

What makes this villa unique

In a quiet area of the golf course but within easy reach of everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know we had an absolutely wonderful time at the house. Everything we needed was there! The location could not have been better. All in all perfect!



It combined something for everyone. I love the Atlantic beaches but when you get tired of being bashed around by the waves you can simply retreat to the lake. I think the kids and my partner were very glad to be able to do that on a couple of days. Bordeaux offers the shopping and the wine district gives you a bit of history / sight-seeing (St. Emillion was beautiful). Then Biscarosse Plage is a great beach town with all you want from that.



Ken Just wanted to thank you for letting us use your house last week. The location is perfect and the house is very well appointed and equipped, so we were very comfortable for the whole time. Nice touches like having a decent bikes and BBQ make a big difference so I will be Recommending it to friends.

Very comfortable villa in great location.

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable villa with nice open-plan living/dining/kitchen area overlooking pretty garden and decent sized pool. Kitchen equipped with all you need and the villa is well furnished. Bedrooms are all a decent size. The villa is in a great location on a quiet road in the "Golf" area of Biscarosse Lac and it is less than 10 minutes to walk from the villa to the lake, There are extensive cycle paths in this area and these are easily accessible from the villa. Supermarkets and restaurants in Biscarosse Ville and Biscarosse Plage are a short drive away.

A great place to stay to enjoy the lakes and Atlantic coast.

Hope to return.

Great villa in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

If I had anything negative to say about this holiday, it would be that a week is not long enough. The villa is set in a tranquil location but fully accessible to all local amenities. The villa was clean, spacious, well equipped and modern. The same can be said for the gardens and pool area. Having a wheelchair user in the family made us do quite a bit of research about the general area and if places were wheelchair accessible. Everywhere was totally wheelchair accessible and enabled us to go out and explore Bicarrosse and further afield.

Supermarkets and shops are aplenty in the town, and are well stocked with everything you need. We didn't eat out much but we loved Paradisio (fish restaurant) and Pizza Mag (takeaways). Again, everywhere was wheelchair accessible.

Our thanks to Nick for all his help and advice on places to visit. He was a reassuring contact for if we needed any information and made sure we had a relaxing holiday.

Finally, thanks to Ken and Pam. We had a great time and would recommend this villa and Bicarrosse for anyone looking for a wheelchair/pushchair accessible holiday, with the option to do everything or just relax in stunning surroundings.

The villa was absolutely perfect in every way, great location, modern, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Nick the resident font of all knowledge was extremely helpful in pointing out places to eat and visit.

A perfect home from home, we will be back
