About Vicky Griffiths

We have owned Libellule since 2003, the year our first child was born. Since then we have worked hard on renovating this once builders' house and yard into a welcoming, safe and fun holiday home where we love to bring our children and share with our friends and family. We are keen swimmers, cyclists and golfers, all of which we can enjoy at our house and in this area of France.

Vicky Griffiths purchased this villa in 2003

Why Vicky Griffiths chose Laluque

The location is great. We love the pace of life in the village, as well as the access to the historic town of Dax and the fantastic Atlantic beaches. Our guests love to take our body boards to the beach and enjoy the waves. The whole area is very French and unspoilt by tourists (unlike other parts of France). At the house, the large private pool is always a real focus for our family and friends, whether it's to relax on the sun loungers, float around on the lilos or play with the other pool toys. The pool is also large enough to swim proper lengths, and has a deep end for jumping in, unlike many pools. The property is also well located to enjoy the famous wine regions of South West France, as well as the beautiful Pyrenees. Golf and cycling in this area are also second to none, not to mention the food!

What makes this villa unique

'Libellule' is a real home from home for all who come here as it is kitted out so that all our family's needs are catered for. Toys for all ages, baby equipment, kitchen equipment, bikes, pool toys, table tennis, outdoor games, indoor games, books, CDs, DVDs. The house has all evolved as our family has grown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We were amazed at the wonderful pool! We swam, we ate, we went to the beach, we borrowed the bikes and went cycling, we went body boarding. Dad loved the bay leaves and rosemary in the garden for his cooking, and having 2 fridges! Jamie liked all the shower rooms. Con loved reading her book by the pool. Mia loved the attention to detail and the volume of toys for all ages. We all loved the inflatables. Everyone agreed that they had a FANTASTIC holiday!" Woltons & McCartneys, Summer 2009

"You have done ever so well in finding such a great house and creating such a lovely home...with the added bonus of fine beaches and golf courses in such close proximity! ps did we mention the fine wine?" Roots Golf Tour, Autumn 2004

"Libellule exceeded even our highest expectations, a real home from home. We had such happy times in the pool and round that table. A holiday to remember forever." Wildmans, Summer 2006

A wonderful property with large pool

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed at Libellule, it really suits our needs perfectly. As we did last year, we teamed up with two other families and enjoyed this lovely home. We are all quite sporty so we enjoyed the table tennis table, the astro-turfed cricket net and even played a little football in the garden. We also ran in the countryside nearby. Most of the time we were busy enjoying the pool. It is a large pool (the pictures are a reality not a con!) and we swam and played in it very merrily, which, with 12 of us would not be possible in a smaller pool. The sunloungers can be moved into shady spots too, ideal for a snooze after lunch! When the children had had enough of swimming they enjoyed the wendy house and trampoline in the garden, and loved the brilliant dressing up box and well stocked Lego box too. Near the pool is a shaded seating area if the sun becomes too intense. We also made the most of the board games on offer, especially Monopoly.

With this being our second time visiting the property we knew we did not need to pack lots of things to keep the children entertained - we normally end up taking things like Lego, dollies, Sylvanians and board games, but with this house you don't need to - its all there already! We also decided to leave the body boards at home and instead we borrowed the owners (for body boarding at Molliets beach), which made packing much easier.

In summary I'd say that Libellule is roomy and spacious enough to manage large groups without you ending up feeling on top of each other, and it is a really well stocked and easy going home. It is ideal for families on their own or with friends.

We will return!

  • 4 of 5

Libellule is an Aladdin's cave of a house with more rooms and living space than one would ever imagine possible when viewing the house from the front. We were there for two weeks in August with elder daughter, her husband and three children but we could almost have asked our other children and their families with all the additional space. Outside at the rear, there is the biggest pool that we have been lucky enough to rent in the past. Other facilities for children and adults alike include table tennis, table football, cricket net, football goal etc - very well equipped indeed. So much so that the two books that I took with me remained unread!

The house was also clean and very well maintained and Vicky went out of her way to ensure that all went well and made sure that all was as hoped shortly after our arrival (which it was!).

We loved the location insofar as it is in a quiet village yet a couple of minutes' walk from a local shop and a bar/restaurant, 10 minutes by car from more restaurants and 30 minutes from beaches. It's a really good base for exploring the area and it's so relaxing to get back there and to jump in the pool whatever the time.

We will definitely recommend Libellule to friends and relatives and we will return.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great holiday here in July 2014. It can be hard finding something to suit all of our children aged 12 to 20, but we all loved Libellule. The house and grounds are huge, so plenty of space for everyone. We had planned lots of day trips, but ended up spending most of our fortnight relaxing at the house. Loads to do there - the pool, table tennis, bikes for everyone, board games, the now essential wifi, and satellite tv for world cup football and Wimbledon! Not to mention lying on a sunbed with a glass of wine and a book. When we did venture out we enjoyed days at the beach and a trip to Biarritz. What we really loved was that Libellule felt like a real home from home, not a bland holiday let. It is so well equipped that it felt like Vicky and her family had just moved out for a fortnight to let us borrow their home. We would thoroughly recommend and will no doubt return.

Home from home

  • 4 of 5

Libellule is an interesting property. It has lots of accommodation which can used in a variety of ways to suit all sorts of requirements. It is clearly a loved family home so has wifi, UK Sky, toys, games (indoor and outdoor) and books for all ages, a great pool and more bicycles than you can shake a Halfords at! Oh and table football and table tennis. Kitchen is well equipped and you can even do your washing! Portable air conditioner helps and top floor has a wall mounted one and it can get hot at this latitude. The area is very rural, quiet and safe. The village shop is helpful for essentials and there are supermarkets within 10 minutes which are open 7 days. Beaches not too far away and great fun - warmish water, bodyboarding, good sand, great restaurants etc etc.

Perfect Pool

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2wks with young grandchildren. A perfect house with many bedrooms, toys, books and bikes and helmets for every age. The pool is excellent and outdoor veranda stays in the shade most of the day and is next to kitchen which makes eating out easy. Local shops are about 10min drive away although there is a small shop in village. Would definitely recommend for families with young children.

The famous Atlantic sandy beaches are only 30 mins away and provide some of the best beach holidays you could want. Either if you are wanting to sit and admire the view or play in the surf. There are lots of opportunities for watersports and surfing too.

The countryside in Les Landes is quite flat and so ideal for cycling holidays.
