La Croisee Des Vents
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
As you approach the drive it is not to difficult to be overwhelmed by a sense of anticipation as you first cast sight of this spacious “Landaise“ home that will sleep 8 plus cot.
The well appointed home is set within an acre of grounds which are secluded by oak woods and looking out on to peaceful panoramas of protected French countryside.
Complementing its natural surrounding's the owners have created a 'home from home' with both inside and alfresco living in mind. The large post and beam lounge and intimate cosy sitting room have a comfortable ambiance, and are all furnished with inviting sofas and armchairs, and softened with warm rugs and cushions, plus an 8-10 seat dining table. This area then opens on to an oak timbered covered terrace, again with a dining area set in a position to relax and enjoy those long evenings and lovely views, where you might spot the occasional deer.
The home is 'away from it' all and yet with 'access to all,' provides a rural rendezvous where you can either relax and unwind, or a great base from which to go down to the best family and surfing beaches in France, as well as ideally located to visit the beautiful mountains and nearby local market towns. It is also within easy access to Biarritz's chic shops and sweeping beach and promenade. There are local marked walking/cycle trails, through surrounding beautiful protected french countryside. Nearbye bakery.
Enjoy country/mountain trails, near bye canoeing or get out on your bike and enjoy some great etap runs - if you like Rugby you are in the centre of some of France's greatest teams.

'Honesty' wine Rack
The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Cassen is a typical Landaise village in France's Sud-Ouest region. Like most of the south-west, it fell under British rule for some three centuries, and the locals remain very pro-British! Parts of nearby Dax were built by Richard the LionHeart. Cassen has some beautiful walks as well a pretty lake with picnic area, with ample opportunity for canoeing, fishing and horseriding.
The region itself boasts beautiful pine forests, as well as some 35km of fine beaches. There are nearby swimming lakes at Mugron and Leon, which offer shaded picnic areas as well as windsurfing, sailing and salmon fishing at Hastingues.
Cassen is a real French village which is populated throughout the year. A wonderful Ferme Auberge, run by the village mayor and his wife, specialises in the local duck and is within easy walking distance.
There is a well-stocked supermarket in nearby Pontonx, ten minutes' drive away, although it's worth being aware that most French shops close on Saturday afternoons, all day Sunday, and on Monday mornings - as well as a two hour lunch break. However, they tend to be open until later in the evening. There is a local boulangerie in the next village, about ten minutes away by bicycle.
