Best for:
Active families who want easy access to the beach and plenty of activities. Outside the summer season the la Prade villas are popular with golfers - there are two courses here plus two more in nearby Hossegor.

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - very good: baby kit available for hire. All pools are protected (normally with a cover). The lake beach at Leon (15 minute drive) is brilliant for little ones.
  • Teenagers - excellent: plenty of activities, a great surfing beach and sea-front cafes and club
  • Reduced mobility - good: always a bedroom and bathroom on ground floor

Anything to watch out for?

  • Gardens are not always enclosed
  • The villas are not luxury - despite what other websites may say. They are simple inside and work really well for easy beach holidays
  • Please note that BBQs are prohibited at Moliets because of the forest fire risk. You can use an electric plancha though - cheap, portable ones can be found in local supermarkets.

Why Moliets?
Moliets is pure Aquitaine - one big outdoor playground! It's an oasis amongst the endless pines of western Europe's largest forest and offers a brilliant range of activities including: surfing, cycling, golf, tennis, adventure parc, horse-riding, kayaking, SUP and more. Many places of interest are within an hour's drive such as the Basque Country, Pyrenees and Spain. Whilst it lacks the sophistication of a Biarritz or Hossegor, Moliets is ideal for an active beach holiday and is better value than its more famous neighbours.

Service: Palvelu on erinomaista, nopeaa ja tehokasta. Kaikki toimii aikataulun mukaan, ohjeet selkeitä, nettisivut hyvät.

Product: Talo tilava ja siisti. Keittiö hyvin varusteltu, sisustus yksinkertainen mutta toimiva. Uima-allas erittäin hyvä lukuunottamatta melko hankalaa avausmekanismia. Talon Wi-Fi huono.

Service: Very helpful. Useful handout. I would add hossegor as a place to visit.

Product: Needs wifi. Wifi at reception is not enough. Advice re taking DVDs would be good.

On 20-Oct-2016 we responded:

Service Comment: Thank you for writing and glad it went well at Moliets - I've also just come back from there. Wifi in the villas would be nice, I agree - the villas on the neighbouring Clairiere estate have this. Hossegor is terrific - hope you caught some of the surf competition. Justin

Service: Need average in the middle

Product: Average.....did not get a lot for the Money. Tired and old Villa, needed to clean and no wifi......get into the 21 century. Not sure if the French know about customer Service.

On 19-Aug-2015 we responded:

Service Comment: Appreciate you writing candidly about your experience at the La Prade villa estate - sorry to learn your villa was disappointing. We will find out which villa number you stayed in. The supplier can then follow-it up with the villa owner for any improvements required or remove it from their rental programme. I agree in-villa wi-fi would be better; this is only available, as advertised, on the Clairiere villa estate. There is free wifi only at reception at La Prade. It sounds at though you had an indifferent experience of customer service in France; I'm sorry to hear that and it's disappointing this affected your judgement of us. You obviously liked Moliets and I really hope that we have an opportunity to improve on your villa experience if you ever returned to the resort. Justin

Service: Phone Alternative Aquitaine after losing a booked villa via another company at last minute. They supplied me with a list of properties still available that met our requirements in 15 minutes and having choose one it was booked within 30 minutes. Really excellent service.

Product: Great to have a reception where you can get holiday information every day. A couple of minor issues with items in villa which they had a man come and fix within the hour. Excellent service.
