What makes Villa Pinede a great holiday rental

Villa Pinede's peaceful forest setting, close to the lake shore, is the ideal natural environment for unwinding. The beach is nearby, there's much to explore, enjoy & do. The villa itself is spacious, convivial, comfortable and with a heated pool is ideal for early season as well as high summer lettings.

Best for:
An active, outdoor holiday where you can also just chill out by your own pool too. Golfers, surfers or watersports enthusiasts - sailing and kite-surfing are popular here - will love everything being so close. Families who want the combination of French countryside and beach. Outside the summer holidays it's also popular with mature couples wanting to explore the region.

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - level interior and enclosed grounds; steps to pool are gated.
  • Teenagers - lake beach & café in cycling distance; nightlife in Biscarrosse-plage.
  • Reduced mobility - ground floor bedroom with en-suite bath; but stair-only access to pool terrace.
  • Anything to watch out for?

No.

Why Biscarrosse-lac?
Biscarrosse is an area of great variety: endless sandy beaches, great surf, forest tracks, lakes and a warm sunny climate. In summer there's a daily market plus night market in Biscarrosse-Plage. There is golf on your doorstep, forest cycling & hiking trails, sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing and kayaking. Arcachon & Cap Ferret are a short drive away.

Accommodation

Spacious modern & well-equipped villa with bonus of a heated pool

Villa Pinede stands in a large plot (1900 m2) off a residential road in the Domaine de Golf - an area of villas built around the pine trees and fairways of Biscarrosse golf course. The villa is timber-constructed like most of the villas in the vicinity.

The house is well-equipped and maintained, with tastefully furnished, with good quality fittings and appliances. The décor is "woody" throughout - pine floors and lighter-stained wall panels - in keeping with the setting and giving a north European / Scandinavian feel.

Ground floor

The entrance opens into a very spacious open-plan area with American-style kitchen at the front, separated by a breakfast bar (4 stools), a central dining area (table & chairs for 8), and living area (2 sofas, chairs, TV, DVD) with French doors opening onto the wide balcony.

The kitchen is modern, well-equipped. Stairs lead down to a basement cellar with washing machine and dryer.

The balcony is covered, features a table and chairs and offer lovely views over the forest.

Three bedrooms are located off the living area:

  • Bedroom 1: double (160 cm) with chest of drawers, cupboard/hanging space, and ensuite bathroom (corner bath, WC)
  • Bedrooms 2 & 3: both with 2x single beds (90cm), cupboard
  • Plus a shared shower room with WC

Upstairs

Staircase leads to an upper level and Bedroom 4, a double bedroom (160 cm) with hanging space, chest of drawers. French doors open onto a very attractive, uncovered top terrace, with views of the forest and pool.

Outside

At the front of the house there is a driveway with parking for 2 cars, plus an area of lawn.

Steps from the ground floor balcony lead down to a spacious & secluded decked terrace with 8m x 4m heated pool (27 degrees max.) which has a security gate and cover. There is also a covered al fresco dining area with barbecue, plus table & chairs for 8 people. There are four sunloungers and four garden chairs.

The area is fully-enclosed, walled on one side, with a balustrade and wall on the forest side, below which the rest of the garden slopes away towards the surrounding trees (not enclosed).
