Anything To Watch Out For:

The owners live here 10 months of the year and they move out during the summer and stay in the small barn on the grounds (separately accessed). Beaufleury is exclusively for guests private use - the house, the pool and the gardens. Julie is on hand if you need her; experience shows she's a very useful font of local knowledge whilst her husband Pete is very handy in case there's any maintenance help needed during guests' stay. They're a small family of 3 plus their pet dogs and cats. 

Families only please. Max. 6 adults and the bunk bedroom is for children only.

Younger kids need to take care on the spiral staircase.

The two ensuites are semi-open to the bedroom.

Why St Jean de Marsacq:

Quiet village with pretty square - typical of the relaxing south west. There's a very handy boulangerie for your morning essentials and a village restaurant too. This is all about staying in a character French property in a private, quiet location but within easy reach of the fabulous beaches and attractions in this highly distinctive corner of south west France.

Reviews

"We had a very good week at the property. The house has a lot of character, composed of large rooms well arranged. The decoration of the house brings an additional charm combining modernity and rustic side. The beds are comfortable. The owners are very friendly and attentive to their tenants."

"This was a truly amazing property. Julie was very welcoming and was always happy to provide recommendations for local beaches and places to visit.  This house is a true gem and with wonderful hosts you would be guaranteed a fantastic holiday."

"We really enjoyed Beaufleury. Well laid out and clean. There was a local shop in the village where everybody went and only French was spoken. The local river was brilliant with canoeing and cycling. We went on several trips in Basque Country and a tasting trip to San Sebastian."

"We enjoyed every hour of this vacation with a lovely renovated house and wonderful weather. When you love big waves, good food and nice people you must book this house :-)"

"We enjoyed every minute in this beautiful and well-maintained beautiful house in quiet Saint Jean de Marsacq. If you love old houses and their special character, you should not miss this one! The owners did a great job in renovating this old master's house. The very friendly owners and their pets provided a very good service during our stay. Numerous beaches and so many other interesting places and cities can be reached by car in less than 30 minutes."

Service: Efficient booking service with good arrivals pack and info.

Product: Truly became home from home - extremely comfortable accomodation with everything you could possibly need. Fabulous location from which to explore the many delights of Acquitaine or simply chill by the pool. Great patisserie/shop round the corner for breakfast and top ups. Owners very friendly and happy to give excellent recommendations for things to do/places to eat and always available to help if required.
