What makes Atlantic Green villas a great holiday rental

Atlantic Green villas are smart, modern villas with pools in Lacanau-Ocean, located on an attractive estate surrounded by pine trees. Living areas are spacious, and each villa has a good-sized terrace overlooking a private pool. They are still just 3 kms by cycle trail from the lake, beach & town, and there's lots to do nearby including all watersports, golf, tennis, horse-riding & cycling, and it's just a short drive to the Médoc vineyards. Atlantic Green villas are pet-friendly.

In addition, guests at Atlantic Green villas benefit from:

  • boulangerie delivery service
  • rental bike delivery service and discounts
  • discounts at the Golf du Baganais (9 holes) & Golf de l'Ardilouse (18 holes)

Best for:
Families looking for a good holiday villa, in a lovely setting and with the convenience of the activities and beaches nearby. Outside July & August prices and offers are very attractive when the villas are popular with golfers, surfers and couples wanting a relaxing villa holiday.

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - baby equipment available; pools are protected by an alarm and pool cover. NB Most villas have sloping gardens and steps down to the poolside.
  • Teenagers - plenty to do & explore nearby, nightlife in Lacanau if needed
  • Reduced mobility - most villas having sloping driveways, entrances & gardens; a few have level access and ground-floor bedrooms and bathrooms, please enquire for details.

Anything to watch out for?
Gardens are partially overlooked, though villas are laid out to minimise this. In-villa wifi is available in some but not all villas, for a small supplement - free wifi available at reception. Unusually, prices exclude sheets & towels in order that our rates compare favourably with those of our peers. We can reserve for payment on arrival - please see Prices & Availability | Extras for details.

Why Lacanau?
Lacanau-Ocean is an outdoor playground, offering a superb beach, lovely cycle trails, tennis, golf, surfing, water-skiing and sailing. In July & August there's lots going on in the day time and evenings, and quieter outside these months. Beaches stretch for miles, so finding your own patch at whatever time of year is not difficult. Three golf courses are located within 3kms. The famous chateaux of the 'medoc rouge' (the wine producing area), the bassin d'Arcachon and Cap Ferret are all within easy reach.

Service: Extremely helpful and responsive. At the time of booking we changed our minds over things but it was never a problem. Any questions were answered very quickly and where they couldn't be answered straight away as answers were required from the owners this was explained. This is the second time we have used Alternative Aquitaine and the service was as it was the first time excellent.

Product: Atlantic Green Villas are a great destination having both the lake and the sea and the villa then having a pool gave us the best of everything. The villa was spacious and clean on arrival. The kitchen was very well equipped. It's location between the lake and sea also made everything so accessible. We had bikes with us and there are miles of cycle paths amongst the trees which are great for all the family. One small point was there was no wifi in the villa but you could go to reception so it didn't distract from the holiday.

On 12-Sep-2017 we responded:

Product Comment: Thank you for taking the time to share your Lacanau experience - delighted to hear that it went so well. The Atlantic Green villas are the pick of the Lacanau villa estates but I agree they really need to install wifi.

Service: The booking in at the site was efficient even though it was done in a laid back way, the staff were very good and helpful. We only had one issue during our stay, in that after a swim in the pool one day it was found that there was no hot water available in our villa. On contacting the office the next day, the office staff were most apologetic and got some one onto the issue immediately. It apparently took him most of the day to fix but it worked when we got back after a days sight seeing.

Product: Property was clean and well equipped.

On 24-Jul-2017 we responded:

Product Comment: We're delighted you enjoyed the villa and area. Sorry to read about the hot water issue, but pleased that local staff were helpful and responsive in sorting it out quickly.

Service: Most helpful

Product: The location at edge of town and behind the end of the cycle path is a downside. Half a mile nearer would be preferable . House itself well appointed and pool area great.

On 26-Aug-2016 we responded:

Service Comment: Thanks very much! If we could pick up one of these Lacanau villa estates and move it next to the beach we'd be very happy! Still, a 3km ride along the cycle paths is a nice way to reach the ocean and sea-front shops, etc. Justin

Service: Feefo Service Rating Product: Feefo Product Rating

Service: Alternative Aquitaine have always reacted quickly to my enquiries

Product: We have stayed in number 27 Atantic Green, Sady the owner has clear fallen out of love with it and it is currently up for sale, I assume that Alternative Aquitaine British Customer always get this Villa, it really need some serious money spending on it particuarly considering the near £7K we spent renting for two weeks. Just a few examples, front door has almost no paint on it, wooden railing at the front designed to prent people falling down quite a steep drop were broken when we were last there 2 years ago, still broken, internal pool lights broken. When we raise these issue each year with Estivil we get the usual reponse, owner does not want to spend any money, to be honest that really is not good enough. There are much better properties on the Estate so Alterative Aquitaine you need to raise these issues with Estivil and make sure your clients get a better property as its a fabulous location

On 25-Aug-2016 we responded:

Service Comment: Very disappointed to read this. It’s not good enough. We have access to the entire Atlantic Green estate and if the villa is as you describe it, it should not be in Estivel’s rental programme full-stop. We will indeed be taking this up with Estivel immediately. Note we haven’t booked you into this villa previously – we have though made two villa reservations for you on the neighbouring Eden Parc estate. We will follow-up these issues with Estivel and come back to you – thank you very much for raising this with us. (Thanks for your comments about Lacanau Ocean – it is indeed a fabulous Aquitaine destination). Justin

Service: Expensive rental.

Product: Some of the equipment needs updating e.g. the base of the fridge was rusty. The coffee table was damaged. The bathrooms / shower room were in need of a refresh / re-grouting The towels were very poor quality. The bed linen was the same as 3 years previous in the same villa and looking a bit worn.

Service: good communication and directions

Product: villa not clean on arrival despite the very officious letter to all occupants about the requirements upon departure. Pool cover broken and dirty; would not have offered any pool safety to a family with young children-reception unable to provide a solution-fortunately we don't have young children so not a major issue for us.

On 03-Sep-2015 we responded:

Service Comment: Thanks for writing back. Disappointed to see this feedback on your villa at Atlantic Green. I hope the cleaning issue was dealt with immediately by reception. It's not uncommon in France to receive an ' offcious' instructions sheet on arrival but I agree the tone of these could be improved. Agree with your tip about heading up to Carcans Plage for a quieter beach and one that many say is better for younger kids. Justin

Service: Very helpful guidance from Justin and Alex; thanks very much

Product: Lovely property, clean, tidy, spacious, gorgeous lavender around pool. Only gripe would be that there were only 3 sunbeds for 4 people - when we asked for another we were told it was done off the number of rooms! Ideally situated for bike riding into town, our teenagers loved it. Maybe not so great for younger riders as there is a small stretch of main road (quiet) before joining the off-road trails.

On 28-Jul-2015 we responded:

Service Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely review, delighted you had a good time, certainly sounds like you made the most of your time! I'm sorry about the sun beds, I agree more would be better, we'll set expectations better in future (and will double-check the directions too). So pleased it went well, thank you again. Alex

Service: The team at Alternative Aquitaine couldn't have been more helpful, we hadn't been to this part of France before and they advised me on great places to go / stay with my family within my budget. They answered all my questions quickly and efficiently - I will be recommending them to all my friends and family and will definitely book through them again.

Product: Great property, very spacious and comfortable and just as we expected. There are a number of steps in the garden leading down from the patio to the pool which with toddlers which was a slight concern but they soon learnt to take them carefully!

On 03-Jul-2015 we responded:

Service Comment: Thank you very much for your comments. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your villa at Lacanau Ocean. I know the beach at Carcans Plage; it's a bit more off-the-beaten-track and popular with locals. It sounds as though you found time to explore some local gems too - St. Emilion and the Bay of Arcachon are firm favourites. There's lots more to see next time... :) Best wishes Justin Justin

Service: Feefo Service Rating Product: Feefo Product Rating

Service: The staff were helpful and efficient. They dealt with any questions I had quickly.

Product: The setting was good but the Villa was tired and not clean, The pool surround was damaged and it was virtually impossible to get the car up the drive to the parking space. There were no facilities worth talking about on the site. The pity was with a little bit of effort the whole think could have been improved as basically it was good just lacking proper care. I paid for the clean which was a rip off and felt that there were a series of rules designed to annoy you by the way in which they were pursued

On 29-Aug-2014 we responded:

Service Comment: It's really frustrating to read about your villa looking tired. We're sorry to hear this and will speak with the supplier. Any cleaning issues should be raised with reception on arrival. Your point about the facilities is correct - these are simply villa estates with a central reception area, rather than being a holiday village/complex. Lots of activities to enjoy locally though. Thanks again for your comments and bringing this to our attention. It's important to hear feedback like this so that we can discuss it with the supplier. Justin
