“Quiet, well equipped bungalow in a traditionally French area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

The bungalow was clean, quite spacious and very well equipped. Everything you need for a good holiday. Lots to do nearby, including some freshwater lakes good for sailing and windsurfing. Too far to walk to the beach if it is hot or you have lots to carry, cycle lanes makes this a good option. In fact a cyclists paradise with cycle highways for miles and miles.

Beach shelves steeply and has currants so not suitable for small children. Small splash pool at the bungalow would be good for young children but a bit limiting for adults. No wifi, and little free access as quite a rural area. Also only two keys which would be a problem with a large group.

A long way to drive if you are contemplating doing that. We took two days to drives down, but did tow a dinghy and made it back to Calais in about 12 hours.

“Wonderful Corner of France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

The villa is comfortable and well appointed. The pool was great for cooling down after sunbathing on the patio! The location is tranquil, yet well placed for local amenities. The beach is amazing and well worth the walk, especially to watch the sunset from the beach restaurant. We had a lovely meal there.
We went on a long walk through the pine forest - excellent directions. We also went to Biarritz and enjoyed the sea front and the shops.
All in all a wonderful break and lovely area.

“Lovely Property, brilliant location!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed in the house with some family and friends in the last week of September 2012 and we had an absolute brilliant and enjoyable time and would definitely return.
We flew into Bordeaux ourselves and the house was about a 2 hour drive away from the airport. Biarritz also has an airport and the house would only be one hour away.
The property itself is very spacious and clean, and well proportioned with four spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, a big living room / kitchen and a very well maintained outside area with lovely decking and a lovely small pool. Everything needed for a weeks self catering holiday is available in the house and everything is well maintained and of good standard. Messange itself has a few little shops, a bakery and a Super U which is great for all shopping. L'Clerc is about 15 minutes drive in the next village.
The house itself is located in a very quiet and small estate at the end of Messange (on the way to the beach) and the beach is only about 10 - 15 minutes walk away. There is a few lovely and quaint restaurants around the are, for people who want to enjoy eating our. We found two lovely ones ourselves (cant remember the name) by just passing them on our way home from day trips.
Biarritz town is about an hours drive and San Sebastian (Spanish border) is about two hours away. The region itself is lovely and quaint with loads of beach and is apparently well known in the surfer community. There is plenty of leaflets in the visitors information book in order to get ideas for day trips and things to do.
All together we had a fantastic stay and would definitely return on our next holiday.
