“Freedom in a lovely house and location” The Médoc is made for pleasure. The vast spaces consisting of forests, never ending sandy beaches (blessedly devoid of the wretched turbines that blight much of the UK coast) and some of the most famous vineyards in the world provide a location of total enjoyment and peace. And, being France, you can roam freely without being constantly harassed and charged for parking - a welcome contrast for UK visitors. This house is well placed for taking advantage of all this and provides a civilised, clean and very well appointed base from which to enjoy this totally relaxing area. Everything you need is there with plenty of new appliances and utensils. An evening on the patio with wonderful fresh food and much better clarets than you can get at home is the best blood pressure reduction therapy I can imagine. All in all, a very relaxing and happy experience.
I would recommend having GPS in your car as it is easy to take a wrong turning.
Look out for the numerous toads living among the adjacent vineyards.
WiFi and mobile phone coverage can be difficult but that can be looked upon as a positive! WiFi that works is available in McDonalds in Lesparre - which is not as grim as similar establishments elsewhere.
Totally delightful séjour in every way.
