This is an authentic Cap Ferret property in a peaceful, natural residential area.

With a spacious plot (1300m2), local beach just 100m away and all the amenities of Cap Ferret village plus great ocean beaches a short bike ride away it's a lovely place for a couple of families or group of friends to unwind for a week or two.

Many properties in the 44 Hectares are extremely basic and in need of renovation, but this is not the case La Cabane Mimbeau! Whilst retaining the character and simplicity of Cap Ferret properties, it is well-equipped and attractively furnished.

The property stands on a plot of approx. 1300m2, and is set back from the road. The accommodation is laid out on one level.

Further details indoors

Living areas: the entrance leads to an L-shaped living area, with sitting area (includes, small TV, DVD player & fireplace), dining table (seats 6-8) and modern, fully-equipped kitchen (oven, hob, microwave, dish-washer, washing machine, American style fridge-freezer).

Bedrooms: the bedroom layout is slightly unusual: Bedroom 1 is the 'master' bedroom, containing a double bed with en-suite bathroom, and is reached from the living room via Bedroom 2, a twin bedroom; together the two rooms form a 'family suite'. Bedroom 1 also has French doors which open onto the main east terrace. Bedroom 3 (a double) is also located off the living room.

Bedrooms 4 & 5 have their own entrances even though they are attached to the building. Bedroom 4 is a large double with en-suite shower room & basin; Bedroom 5 is a small cabin room with bunks, and basin; the location and access mean it is best suited to older children.

Bathrooms: There are two en-suites (see above) - 1 bathroom and 1 shower room, plus a shared shower room with toilet, and a second separate WC.

Further details outdoors

French doors lead from the living area (and from Bedroom 1) onto a lovely terrace area overlooking the garden with two garden tables & chairs seating 6-8, plus two deck-chairs.

The garden is a good size, natural & typical of Cap Ferret with several pine trees and a pine needle base.

Overall, this is an ideal rental for one extended or two families to experience a unique corner of Aquitaine.
