Stepping through the front door, guests are welcomed into an expansive living and dining area made luminous and airy by floods of natural light and vaulted ceilings. The plush lounge and wooden décor ensure the space is cosy without being claustrophobic.

Adjacent to the living area is a fully-equipped kitchen where culinary enthusiasts can indulge their passion, whether its whipping up a summer salad or preparing a holiday feast for family and friends. Fitted with an array of modern amenities, this kitchen enjoys ample counter space and easy access to interior and al-fresco dining settings.

On the ground floor guests will also find the first of four bedrooms, containing a queen-sized bed with ensuite, TV, air-conditioning and easy access to the terrace. Ascending to the upper floor reveals three more well-appointed bedrooms, including one room with two single beds, and two rooms each boasting a queen-sized bed, hand-basin and air-conditioning. A shower and separate toilet can also be found on this floor for added convenience.

Ideally situated in a residential area of the seaside resort town, Maison du Bois is close to a bevy of conveniences, including supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, boutiques and at least six beaches. France’s long Atlantic coast boasts long beaches of fine sand that is ideal for sunbathing, surfing and beachcombing.

The beautiful lake known as Etang d’Aureilhan (15-minute drive) is almost as rich in history as it is in beauty. It is no wonder the lake has long attracted the world’s rich and famous. The stunning Château Woolsack can be found on the lake’s banks. Built in 1911 for Hugh Grosvenor, 2nd Duke of Westminster, this lakeside manor was designed by architects Detmar Blow and Fernand Billery to look like the Tudor style home of Rudyard Kipling built by Cecil Rhodes in South Africa. The home has welcomed guests including Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin, Salvador Dali, and even Winston Churchill, who created approximately 20 paintings on the banks of Lake Aureilhan.

Don’t forget to take a stroll along the Promenade Fleurie, a lovely walk through flowers, shrubs and ornamental gardens along the edge of the lake.

The renown seaside resort of Arcachon (65-minute drive) is a great option for a day trip. In the neighbouring town of Le Teich you’ll find a popular ornithological reserve, a magical spot for birdwatchers to see a wide range of bird species in their natural environment. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars!

Running south from Arcachon you’ll find sandiest stretch of coastline in Europe, running 200km southwards to Biarritz. Don’t forget to check out the Dune de Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune whose shifting summit provides panoramic views across to Cap Ferret.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The seaside resort’s beachfront is a hive of water sports activity. You’ll have no trouble finding sport rentals, surf schools, disc golf, and even a horse-riding school.

The Landes Adventure Park (10-minute drive) is a forest acrobatic park suitable to children from the age of two and up. Kids will love exploring the canopy and flying along zip lines while under the supervision of professional guides.

If a daytrip to Arcachon is on the cards, there are a litany of activities for kids. Notably there’s the amusement parks of Aqualand Bassin d’Arcachon and Parc de la Coccinelle, the former is a waterpark, the latter a more ride-based theme park, both a great day out.
