Further details indoors

The cottage offers 3 double-size bedrooms and a large open-plan living area all on ground floor level. The large spaces and tiled floors give the cottage a distinctly summery feel.

Original features have been retained wherever possible including oak-beam ceilings in the kitchen and one of the bedrooms, plus a Girondine open fireplace in the lounge.

The master bedroom has en-suite shower facilities and a king-size bed. The second bedroom contains twin beds whilst the third has two singles and bunk beds - this has proved to be an excellent kids' room. The main cottage can therefore sleep up to 8 people. There is plenty of storage space provided.

Additionally there is a separate family bathroom with bath, shower and wc.

The living area of the cottage consists of a large lounge, oak refectory dining table for 8 and a good-size integrated kitchen. The lounge is dominated by a huge open fireplace. There is plenty of comfy seating including two new sofas. TV and vcr provided.

The kitchen has an English 'country kitchen' design and is well-equipped to include washing machine, dishwasher, two fridges, freezer, electric cooker, microwave, coffee machine, kettle and toaster.

Further details outdoors

The large swimming pool is protected by an approved alarm system. There are steps at one end and is at a depth of 1.6m.

Other outside facilities include a BBQ and plenty of garden furniture. The gardens are extensive and there is a tranquil patio area for taking meals outside.

The Aquitaine region

The setting is highly tranquil. The hamlet Ste-Hélène-de-l’Etang consists of just nine houses and the land is surrounded by forest.

There is abundant wildlife including frogs, toads, rabbits, lizards, deer plus a variety of birds. There is a campsite within earshot; it's relatively low-key but some noise is likely during the high season.

The vast lake Hourtin-Carcans is less than 1km away and dominates the area - it's the longest freshwater lake in the country.

The immediate area is covered by pine forest punctuated by the occasional village, Carcans being the closest. The lake resort of Maubuisson is a short drive or cycle ride whilst the princial resort of this coast, Lacanau Ocean, is just over 20kms.
