The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The region is rich with long sandy surf beaches, world class golf courses, pine forests and pretty towns and villages. There are some beautiful historic place to visit such as St Jean de Luz. The Pyrenees can be seen in the distance and they are only a 30 minute drive away.
The weather is beautiful, with mainly clear sunny blue days. The proximity of the sea ensures there is always somewhere to go to cool down. The very warm weather runs from May - September but can be glorious in April and October too. In the winter, it is cold and frosty often and the ski areas are about 1 1/2 hours drive away.
Restaurants and Bars: All culinary tastes can be catered for in the local area. There are plenty of local restaurants, bars and cafes for you to sample. One of the regions finest restaurants and bars, Auberge D'Ugne, is only 150 m up the road from Maison Coumets and there is a wonderful pizzeria in Saubrigues (2km away).
Surfing: Hossegor and the local area of Aquitaine is the surfing capital of Europe and regular Word-Pro events are held along the coast. Surf hire and tuition is available in nearby Hossegor and Seignosse.
Beaches: The Atlantic coast of South West France, stretching from the Spanish border right up to Bordeaux, is really just one long sandy beach so you can easily find a spot away from it all. The nearest beaches are a 15 minute drive away in Capbreton and Hossegor.
Golf: There are two 18 hole golf courses nearby of world class standard both open to non members. Golf Hotel De Seignosse www.golfseignosse.com and Golf Club d'Hossegor.

In the Summer, there are beautiful villages to visit such as Espelette, famed for its chilli chocolate factory and Saint Jean Pied-De-Port with its magnificent castle.
Spain: It is just a 30 minutes drive to the Spanish border. San Sebastian is worth a visit, located just across the Spanish border on the coast (45min drive).
