Villa in Sanguinet, Landes, Aquitane, France - Near Lake and Atlantic Coast
The villa has 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large open plan living room with dining area and kitchen. Open terraces provide ample sunbathing and dining areas and overlook the secluded and private pool and mature garden. A large garage houses the table tennis table as well as a large larder style fridge freezer and the washing machine. The situation of the villa is quiet, but numerous restaurants and bars are only a short walk away, as is the local village where you can hire bikes and also the bakery for your morning croissants and a traditional market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, with something for all the family. There is a sailing club close by where you can hire a boat, wind-surfer, canoe or take lessons (they cater for all ages) and also a water ski school and a tennis club where you can either just play or sign up for tuition.

About the Owner
Hello my name is Jan Richards
My husband and I designed Villa Fauvette together with a local architect in 2001 who then built it for us.
We have 3 children and fell in love with the area when we visited for the first time in 1998, as it is perfect for children of all ages and provides us with an idyllic holiday retreat.
There is plenty for all the family to do or if you refer just relax and lie by the pool side.
I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Best equipped villa we have ever stayed at, a real home from home. Glorious weather, great house, perfect holiday. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we will be back
Villa Fauvettes has everything you could need (and more besides). The house is very comfortable and the private pool a bonus. I can definitely recommend Villa Fauvettes. The owners were very helpful and even borrowed a travel cot and high chair for the duration of our stay. Fantastic!

Great villa, beautiful pool and location
Great property - just as described and pictured in the listing - comfortable, clean and airy. There was plenty of space for all 5 of us, including two active young children, who particularly loved the spacious garden and the pool. We particularly liked that the pool was shallow enough in one half for our 5 year old to touch the bottom.
The kitchen was well fitted out with plenty of equipment and the BBQ and patio were fantastic, as we had shade and sun at all times of day. We loved the open plan feel to the villa.
The area was great - easy walking and bike access to the lake and centre of Sanguinet, and plenty to see and do in the local area.
Thanks for a great stay. We'd certainly come back!
Beautiful and Peaceful
Arriving at the villa in the night, we were pleased to find it immaculate, all rooms being spotless. Information provided in the welcome booklet allowed us to start enjoying what the area had to offer straight away. The beautiful lake and local amenities, including restaurants, markets and evening entertainment, were only a short walk away so the location was great. Already looking forward to when we will be able to go again.
Villa and pool are gorgeous and well maintained. With the local attractions, restaurants and beach close by the holiday was great and wish we had stayed for longer. With a group of 4 adults the villa accommodated us easily as was the perfect setting for a truly relaxing holiday. Will be visiting again.

Stretching from the vast inland sea that is the Bassin d’Arcachon to the foothills of the Pyrenees, Les Landes is a unique blend of pine forests, saltwater lakes and sand dunes, linked by one continuous sandy beach. It is blessed by a climate and sea conditions that encourage every kind of water and holiday sport, including some – like sand-yachting – which few will have tried before. Although the line of the coast may be straight, the variety it encompasses is huge.
