About the Owner

I live in Wales with my twin boys. We spend most of our holidays in Southern France, where we have made amazing friends and have really fallen in love with the country, especially the beaches and forests.

Built in 2012 from our own design, It`s a comfortable, practical home from home.

We love Bias because although quiet, it boasts some fantastic facilities nearby. There are beautiful beaches, surf, forests, activities (high ropes/horse riding/ cycling) and a great range of easily accessible bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here.

The area is easily accessible with Bordeaux airport just over an hour away.

A fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a number of self-catering holiday properties over the years but this has to be one of the best. The villa is very comfortable and extremely well equipped, and located in a quiet area not far from the attractive (and not too busy) resort of Mimizan. We couldn't take advantage of the fantastic beaches nearby due to my daughter's broken arm (of all the things to happen before a holiday!) so the pool turned out to be a godsend. We had most of our meals out on the decking, taking advantage of the lovely outdoor furniture.

In the general area, we enjoyed activities on the Mimizan lake and also the zoo near Arcachon was worth a visit. Lots of nice cycling routes too in the area.

We're missing the villa already!

Fabulous house with amazing outdoors area

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely house last year & enjoyed it so much we are returning for 2 weeks this year. It's well equipped, very clean and in a peaceful resedential area, we especially liked the outdoors with a fab pool & BBQ, wifi for the teenagers a hit too!. Beaches are only a few mins drive & not over crowded even in August as they are so vast. The life guarded areas are brilliant for the kids as is the surf for body boarding. We were met by a local representative who spoke English & was really helpful with local area knowledge and any enquiries regarding the house. A day trip to the Dunes du pilat is to be recommended, there are also some lovely local markets.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the area due to its beautiful, long, uncrowded beaches and plentiful surf. There are several activity centres nearby offering horse riding, paint-ball and high ropes. There are miles of beautiful forest accessible on newly built cycle tracks linking all local beaches. Bias is quiet enough to escape the crowds, but only 5km from the nearest beach and a short drive to the lively local town of Mimizan. There is an abundance of good bars and restaurants all within a short distance. Mimizan has some lively festivals and is an interesting, friendly place. The drive from Bordeaux airport takes just over an hour and is simple and stress free.
