Description from manager

Description

Restored resinier’s cottage in the secluded sweet-scented pine forests of the Gironde.

"Resinier" is as Gascon a name as they come and it refers to the people of the forest who collected resin from the innumerable pine trees of Aquitaine. Of course, these days machines do the work.

Location description from manager

The Nouvelle-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.
