House in Navarrosse, Biscarrosse, Landes, Aquitaine, France - 300M From A Lake With Sandy Shores, 12 Mins From The Sea. Sleeps 5
The house is situated South of Arcachon, in the beautiful Landes forest 12 minutes from the sea and 300m from a lake with sandy shores. It has been architecturally designed to a high French standard in a typically French style with tiled floors on the ground floor and carpets upstairs. The house is simply furnished in pine to complement the exposed pine beam ceilings. The lake has numerous sandy beaches with ample shady parking and during the Summer months it has an average temperature of 20C plus. The shallow perimeter is a very safe place for small children. The long sandy Atlantic beaches bordered by the pine forests provide world class surfing. This is a French holiday area famous for wines and seafood and is largely undiscovered by the British. Walk or cycle along special tracks in the forest to lakes or sea. Local village markets, classic vineyards, historic Bordeaux and the Bastide towns are all within easy reach. Not far South are The Pyrenees and Spain
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our fourth stay and just as enjoyable as ever. We love the contrast between the beaches of the lake and the ocean.
The best holiday we have had for a long time. Excellent location there is so much to do in the area . Loved the bird park at La Teich.
The house is very well equipped - you had thought of everything for our comfort. It had everything we needed. We will be back.
Our whole family including our 6 year old son enjoyed cycling to the lake and other places on the special cycle tracks.
