Location description from owner
The Aquitaine region
'The capital of the good life'... Aquitaine, the Atlantic region in South West France is one of the best kept secret holiday destinations of the French people and those in the know internationally. Why? Miles of sandy white beaches, hot sunny weather, a pilgrimage destination for foodies (Gastronomes) and wine lovers (Oenophiles), lower prices and avoiding the crowds, traffic and expense of the Mediterranean and Paris may be a start. Enjoy, the city of Bordeaux, the Cote D'Argent, Europe's 's longest expanse of white sandy beach featuring Europe's highest dune, 'Dune du Pyla' near Arcachon, fashion shopping or stopping off for a snack in the oyster capital of France, Cap Ferret and the Bassin d'Arcachon.
Known simply as Bisca, our base in Biscarrosse is on the Côte d'Argent or the Silver Coast. Biscarrosse plage is a top holiday destination in it's own right with its big lakes, beautiful beach, forest, cycle paths, nearby dune du Pyla, nightly market and fresh food market daily during summer. We are situated at the edge of the shops and restaurants just opposite the school. We are 200m from the beach access at the south beach parking and 300m from a peaceful pine forest. Biscarrosse is a surf beach and is on a stunning coastline of golden sands and dunes that stretches 200km know as the Cote d'Argent. Sunsets are amazing here and there is no better place than sitting on the dune watching the sun go down.There is a fresh food market daily each morning and also a night market of crafts and art during summer.

“Holiday of a lifetime!”
We flew into Bordeaux and spent a few days there before Rachel picked us up and took us to collect Virginia, the VW Splittie. From there we took a road trip down the south west coast from Arcachon to San Sebastian. The pace of life was so chilled, enjoying the beaches, good food and wine. We made a lot of friends along the way as Virginia attracts a lot of attention! James and Rachel are so friendly and helpful, it's a holiday we'll never forget and we can't wait to go back!
“Highlight of 2011”
We had a fantastic holiday in Lionel the campervan in June 2011. The process of booking was simple, James was so helpful with regards to providing information and ideas and we had a brilliant week travelling up and down the beautiful coast. Would recommend it to anyone!
“A absolutely perfect holiday..”
We had such a lovely time with virginia- the red T1 Lady, we felt us absolutely free and really like we would have an "Endless summer". It was a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and James was really nice with all the organisation in front of our holiday. All the stuff inside Virginia was with loving of attention to detail. We miss Virginia... Just do it- you will have a great experience!!!'
“Cool camping at its best”
We spent a week's holiday cruising around in Virgina exploring the fantastic surf beaches of SW of France as well as the vineyards of the Medoc in stylee! Belle Vie looked after us as well as they had obviously looked after the van, which was a great experience to drive. Give it a go, it's great fun, cool camping at its best!
“Wow! Absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended!”
From the moment owner & host James collected us from the train station, we knew we had made the right decision to hire a camper from these guys. The camper we hired was the red split screen ..... sooo cool!....it was hard not to miss us! and packed with extra's, which made the experience so much more enjoyable! .... our friends were very envious when we sat down to compare holiday photos! Boring hotel room vs VW camper! There is only one winner! Our 2 main concerns before booking were 1. Safety 2. Cleanliness , but James put us at ease when he ran through safety aspects and the camper was well maintained and spotlessly clean. Although it was a tad tricky getting used to driving another vehicle, before long it was an absolute pleasure to jump back in to drive further on our adventure!.... but be warned. The VW camper is addictive ....you simply wont want to give it back! We are still dreaming of our next adventure, and cant wait to return!
“Can't rate highly enough!”
'Can't rate highly enough. Bus was in lovely condition and with everything we could need. James and Rachel were really helpful and friendly, gave us all sorts of advice on routes and sites and even some milk when we found no shops were open and our youngest needed some for our first night in the bus. The boys loved staying in Sebastian and the area was perfect for a camping holiday for a family with small children. They even sent a memento of the trip to the boys when we got home! James and Rachel and Belle Vie are a great introduction to the people, buses and ethos of VW'ers :-)
