About Elizabeth Bilney

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.

Why Elizabeth Bilney chose Cote d'Argent - Mimizan

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.

What makes this villa unique

The house is only just over 4 years old and is cool and spacious. It has its own lit pool and a sun deck and covered terrace, where you can relax with a gas fired BBQ.

There is internet, a DVD player and satellite TV within a comfortable lounge/dining area.

The accommodation has 3 bedrooms with the master having its own walk in shower en-suite. The main bathroom has a walk in shower and twin sinks. There are two double beds and a bunk bed in the third bedroom. The lounge has a double sofa bed giving versatile arrangements.

The kitchen has a hob, combination oven, coffee machine, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a washing machine. The house has central heating, automatic venting and even remote control heated towel rails!

Everything you are likely to need is provided :)

Wonderful, relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing, we rented the villa as wanted to take advantage of the cycling paths, but also rather indulged in the home comforts of the villa, lazing by the pool, bbq's on the decking. We were delighted to find that the villa was really well kitted out, no looking for a corkscrew, champagne glass or rummaging around for something to read....everything had been thought of! Thank you, we hope to come back soon!

Lovely, well equipped house, perfect to relax in!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxed stay in this fabulous house. The house was well-equipped and worked really well for two small families. The setting was lovely, and perfect for exploring the local area. The swimming pool was just the extra cherry on top of a lovely holiday! Thank you.

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.
