WHAT MAKES VILLA MAKILA A GREAT HOLIDAY VILLA:
We think the space works best of all for one family with space to accommodate grandparents too or an extra friend or two. We put the capacity of the house at 7 people.
This is also a particularly good location for golfing couples / friends - 5 minutes' drive either side of the villa and you will be tee-ing up on a very good golf course (and there's plenty more to choose from in the area).
ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR:
We've signed this villa very late for summer 2019 - new photos will be available Autumn 2019.
The twin beds in Bedroom 3 are best-suited to younger kids.
WHY BIARRITZ & BASQUE COUNTRY:
Biarritz is the most famous resort on France's Atlantic coast. An eclectic and unique combination of sophistication, elegance and surf culture. Magnificent beaches, superb cuisine, golf, spa & leisure, plus plenty of family attractions. We love it! Meanwhile, the surrounding Basque Country is a genuinely distinctive corner of France with its unique architecture, cuisine and language. Enjoy pretty villages amongst rolling countryside, famous seaside resorts such as Biarritz & St Jean de Luz, venture into the Pyrénées mountains and take the short journey to Spain to sample San Sebastian.

Accommodation - ground floor:
Accommodation - first floor:
The plot is generous with well-planted, private and good size gardens to the front and rear of the villa.
At the front is an area of lawn, plenty big enough for some badminton, boules or to kick a ball around. There's also a play house in the garden and a patio terrace with table and chairs.
The main attraction though is that swimming pool to the rear of the villa! It's rare to find a swimming pool of this size (15m length & heated) especially in a 4 bedroom villa. With its surrounding deck and covered terrace from the kitchen, this is where the majority of holiday hours are going to be spent (not wasted!). Bordering the back gardens is a lovely area of woodland which, with its accompanying birdsong, enhances that feeling of seclusion, despite being so close to bustling Biarritz.
The outside dining terrace to the rear of the villa is partially covered by a pergola and is accessed directly from the kitchen. Put a couple of tuna steaks on the gas plancha and enjoy your surroundings!
Handy pool shower adjacent to the pool. 4 x sun-loungers.
1 x Double on ground floor; 1 x Twin (can be joined to make double), 1 x Double, 1 x Single on first floor
2 x en-suites & 1 x family bathroom
Heated 15 x 6 m private pool with electric cover, depth range 1.5 to 1.8m
PS4 in the playroom
No smoking & no pets
Villa Makila enjoys a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Bassussary village, yet it's very close (5 km) to bustling Biarritz. With its verdant, paceful gardens and woodlands bordering the back garden, you will feel relaxed and secluded - and after a busy day at the beach or boutiques of Biarritz, this is a heavenly retreat. A lane and footpath take you directly to the village on foot in 10 minutes and it's a mere 15 minutes by car to the beaches and resorts of La Cote Basque. Bassussary is also conveniently situated to access the airport and the motorway for day-trips further afield (we particularly recommend San Sebastian, the Pyrenees, Bayonne and St Jean de Luz).
