3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Pyla-sur-Mer, Gironde, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Only 80 meters from the beach, Villa la Cigale offers superb accommodation for a relaxing beach vacation. A pretty spacious 1930s villa, La Cigale retains many traditional features.

We had a wonderful vacation. The house and the garden are beautiful, very clean and very well equipped. Very nice and helpful landlady. The only thing missing is WLAN.

Christine and Eric clearly love their gorgeous home and from first booking it was clear that the attention to detail was present in every part of the process.

We have just come back from a very relaxed 2 weeks at the Villa Cigale. Christine is an excellent hostess which shows in the level of care and attention shown in the information given both prior to arrival and when you arrive.
