Description from owner

Description

Maubuisson is an unspoilt, unpretentious and relatively undiscovered French holiday location. Perfect for family beach holidays but also great for cycling and outdoor pursuits as well as the Bordeaux wine region and the historic city itself. The house is a very short walk from the fabulous child friendly beach at Maubuisson and its range of restaurants and shops.

The house has just been extended and completely refurbished throughout and now offers top quality home from home facilities with a new kitchen and wet shower room/toilet as well as a new family bathroom. The main bedroom has a king size double bed, there is a "dormitory" with 4 single beds perfect for kids, there is a second double room with king sized bed and a small room which ideally is a single, but can be a double if you pull out the Storabed from underneath (the beds then are both at the same height and together form a 6' double)

There is an extensive new deck/terrace outside the property with a built-in

Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

Maubuisson is a beautiful and unpretentious French family holiday resort about 45 minutes drive west of Bordeaux, in the South West of France. The town is on the southern end of Lac Hourtin and has its own safe sandy beach. It is approximately 10 minutes drive from the vast sandy surfing beaches of France's South West coast - 15 minutes from Lacanau which is a surfing capital - and 30 minutes drive from the Bordeaux vineyards (the Haut Medoc is closest). The whole area stretching alongside this coast is forested and has a network of cycle routes and nature trails, making this a fantastic location for family holidays. The Arcachon basin and Pyla Dune are just over an hour's drive to the south.

Maubuisson

Maubuisson is situated on the southern coast of France's largest inland freshwater lake, Lac Hourtin, which is approx 18km by 4km. There is sailing, waterskiing and kite surfing on the lake. The house is less than 100m ( a very short walk) from the lake and it has a long stretch of well maintained, fine, soft sandy beach with safe paddling and swimming for all. There is a range of shops and restaurants in the village - 5/10 minutes easy walk - as well as the tourist office, cashpoint, and cinema. There are golf courses, horse riding, cycling and a range of outdoor pursuits and activities within easy reach. The Bordeaux wine region is approximately 30 minutes drive north/east - the closest area being the Haut Medoc/Pauillac. Many vineyards, including the famous Chateau Rothschild, are open for visitors and tastings. Carcans Plage and the Atlantic coast - famed for surfing and sand dunes - are 10 minutes drive away, Lacanau only slightly further.

“Best Holiday House We Have Stayed In In France”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2015

The house surprised us, being both moder and clean. It is well equipped with no penny pinching. The downstarirs wetroom/shower was a big hit with everyone. Some people will not like the steep drive but we found a way to turn round easily enough. To be fair we have experienced much worse access to French holiday homes. There is no WiFi but we learned to do without and there is free WiFi at the bar on the lake and the Tourest Information Office just 10 mins away. We travelled with two toddlers and 7 adults. We all fitted in OK at night and the dining table and lounge easily accommodarted all of us for meals and evening chats - and of course, SKY TV will all the channels we have at home. Usuyally you are lucky to get CNN and perhaps BBCWorld. And CeBeeBees was a god send on the one wet day when dad had a bad cold. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes to the shops via the scenic route along the lake. All in all a brilliant house. .

“superb rental”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

This rental property is of a very high standard. The owners have equipped it so that it feels like home, they really have thought of everything. The bathrooms are really fabulous and the beds really comfortable, with cotton bed linen. the bunk room is ideal for 4 children The beach is less than 100m away and is superb for toddlers, no tide, shallow and pristine. It is also great for tweenies-sailing, windsurfing, pedalo's, wake boarding- which is 10 minutes by car(30 euro per 15 mins).It is a 10 minute walk for croissants bread and groceries and a 15 minute drive to the Atlantic beaches. There is no internet but it is available in local cafes and at the tourist office which is a 15 minute walk away. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. There were 8 in our party and the house never felt overcrowded. The kitchen is very well equipped and the open plan layout is lovely. We had a terrific relaxing week in this lovely house and would highly recommend.

“Great family holiday - lovely house - super location”

Reviewed 27 May 2013

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The house is fantastic - clean, comfortable and well equipped; with a fabulous location near the beach. There's a lovely scenic stroll alongside the beach to the modern centre of the village; which is well stocked with cafes, family restaurants and shops for most everyday things. Kids loved the beach and were quite happy whiling away their days building sand castles and so on. The service from the owners was first class - from helpful recommendations to simply making us feel very welcome. All in all, a great holiday.

“Amazing accomodation, gorgeous location.”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2012

The house was superb, very clean & everything was in an immaculate order. It was like a home from home, with the full range of children's toys, bikes, books & beach toys. We couldn't of asked for any more. The location is absolutely beautiful with the lake a short away. A lovely stroll down to the local baker's for our bread & croissants every morning & a visit to the play park in the afternoon. Idyllic!!

“Outstanding holiday.”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

This holiday ticked all the boxes. It had everything you could possibly need for a fabulous holiday. It had a well equipped kitchen and beautiful bedrooms. The property was spacious and of an extremely high standard.. There was not one thing I would have changed. The position of the house was almost on the fabulous beach- no need to take the small children anywhere in the car - which was a huge plus for my family.

“What a wonderful week we had”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2012

Superbly appointed accommodation close to all amenities and a short walk from the beach and local town. We found the townsfolk very friendly and approachable and they certainly enhanced our stay, The house has all mod cons you would need to enhance your stay and in top class condition. As an extended family holiday location it cannot be faulted and we had three generations of the family enjoying the holiday. Mosquitos were a minor problem in the evenings but didn't spoil the holiday. We had a very minor issue at the beginning of the holiday which was promptly resoved following a phone call with the owners who couldn't have been more helpful. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

“Smart, homely, great location.”

Reviewed 28 May 2012

The house is really nicely furnished and well finished. It clearly doesn't belong to French people! The house is extremely comfortable and happily accommodated 8 of us, plus a baby. The kitchen is fairly well equipped and big enough for several people to be cooking at once. A couple of the bedrooms are in the eaves of the house, so mind your head. The location is great. Nicely perched between the lake and little town — walking distance away — and the beach. The combination of the lake and surrounding forest do make a great habitat for the mozzies, though, so pack your insect repellant. Further afield, wine country around Bordeaux is beautiful and tasty! All in all, we loved our stay and would happily go back!

“Living in this house fees like at home.”

Reviewed 14 May 2012

Beautiful, modern property located on hill in the forest of Maubuisson. Barbecue area with view on lake. Back terrace ideal for children. Friendly owners with good taste. Quite region suited for walking, cycling, surfing, swimming and sailing. Take mosquito repellant.

“Luxurious Home Comforts by the beach”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2011

I cannot speak highly enough about this property having stayed there for a week with my 5 year old twins. The location of this property is so close to the beach that if the children need the toilet you literally take them back! The Maubuisson beach is beside a really safe lake where children can walk 25m before getting waist deep. Our morning ritual was a stroll down to the playground and boulangerie for croissants and pain au chocolat to 'kick off the day'. The house itself is spacious, airy and bright and excellently equipped - quite literally home from home! The large outdoor decking and BBQ area are really impressive with superb lake views . I cannot fault this property and its proximity to the beach and other lovely surrounding towns. We will definitely return!

“A fantastic place to relax with a young family or teenagers.”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2011

We were very impressed by the quality of the accommodation and enjoyed the views over to the lake from the front decking. Maubuisson was a great place to stay with plenty to do nearby, from the beach at the lake to plentiful cycle tracks, walks and the nearby Atlantic coast for surfing. There was also a good variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance of the holiday home. We had planned to visit Bordeaux and more of the surrounding area but that will have to wait for another time, as illness struck our teenage son meaning that we were unable to make the most of all the things on offer. However, on the plus side, we were thankful that we had chosen such a nice rental property as we got to spend a lot of time reading at the house! Also it was easy to get to see the doctor in the village, if you were prepared to wait. To sum up I would thoroughly recommend both the property and the area for an enjoyable holiday and would return again.
