It's something we've been looking for for a long time! A villa with a private pool close to Arcachon.

And it's a very good price too. It's a nice story too, as the villa has recently been purchased by a family who are clients of Alternative Aquitaine - they've been visiting the area for years!

The present owners have turned the house into a light, modern and very relaxing holiday home.

The property has gradually been modernised to cater for today's lifestyle and tastes - the kitchen and bathroom are brand new and the furnishings and equipment are modern and practical. Floors are tiled or laminated.

Size Sleeps up to 8, 4 bedrooms

Family friendly Great for children of all ages, Suitable for people with restricted mobility
Notes No pets allowed, No smoking at this property

Further details indoors

The accommodation is all at ground level and comprises:

Open-plan 'L'-shaped living room integrating lounge and dining areas. The lounge area is bright and modern with two sets of French doors accessing the front gardens.

Two 3-seater sofas are at each end of the lounge and there is TV with DVD player. The dining area is nicely separated from the lounge and also provides direct access to the terrace to the rear of the villa.

The kitchen has been completely gutted and fitted in a fresh design with wooden worktops, vibrant red fridge freezer and breakfast bar stools, new silver appliances and white units. It comes well-equipped for self-catering holidays.

Just off the kitchen is a handy utility area with washing machine, 2nd fridge plus wine chiller.

Family bathroom, again brand new, comprising bath, integrated shower, W.C. and basin.

There are four bedrooms, two facing the rear garden and two facing the front. Each follows the modern, 'uncluttered' style of the villa.

Bedroom 1: twin bedrooms, facing the back garden

Bedroom 2: double bed, also with a view of the back garden

Bedroom 3: main bedroom with double bed, shower and basin. The shower cubicle is an alcove within the bedroom (see photo). For privacy, the bedroom door can be locked. This room looks on to the front garden

Bedroom 4: bunk beds

Further details outdoors

The corner plot is a generous size with ample gardens front and back.

The private swimming pool is situated a few metres from the house, in the front garden. There is a terrace surrounding the pool plus outdoor furniture for relaxing and meals (garden table and chairs for 8).

The pool has a safety cover, protective fence and Roman steps access - ideal for young kids. At approx 9 x 4.5 metres it's a good size too - the pool is rectangular in shape with an added semi-circle where the pool is accessed. Also, the pool is floodlit so it can be used in the evenings.

To the rear of the house, a wooden decked terrace runs most of the length of the property. Here you will find attractive teak garden chairs with cream cushions, and a built-in BBQ chimney.

The terrace can be accessed from the living area and kitchen. (NB In the photos you may see a slight drop from the terrace into the garden - the owners will put pots or planters along the terrace edge to prevent little ones from falling). A gas BBQ is also provided.

You can park cars directly outside the house.

The Aquitaine region

The villa occupies a corner plot in a cul-de-sac in a very secluded residential location.

This is one of Yolande's strengths - a tranquil and private setting yet close to local shops and a relatively short distance from bustling Arcachon.

This is quite a rare combination and adds to the appeal of 'Yolande' to family holidays. La Hume is the local district where you will find a few shops and a restaurant (all within an easy walk). It's 5kms into the heart of Arcachon where there is excellent shopping, plentiful cafes, bars and restaurants, a casino and fabulous beaches.
