What makes Villa Atlantic a great holiday rental
Perfect for families and groups of friends wanting a nice villa with pool near the beach and close to plenty of things to do as well. Ideal for golf holidays and surf holidays too, especially outside July & August when it is very good value.
Anything To Watch Out For?
The area offers superb beaches, lovely cycle trails, tennis, golf, surfing, water-skiing, sailing; there's a spa too. 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. The famous chateaux of the 'Medoc rouge' (the wine producing part), the Bay of Arcachon and Cap Ferret are all in easy reach.

* Picnicking by the lac de Lacanau - find a shady spot and enjoy the tranquility
* Hit the beach late afternoon and stay for an evening gourmet picnic, like the French do, watching the sun go down
* Cycle rides along the forest trails - mainly flat, easy & very enjoyable
* Driving by some of the outlandish Medoc chateaux - impressive, and humbling
* For some real exhilaration try a surfing lesson, or just hire a body-board!
* Tour and tasting around world-famous Medoc vineyards
* Boat trips along the Gironde and to the Phare de Courdouan
* Drive down to Cap Ferret, for oyster-tasting and to climb the lighthouse
* Spend a day strolling beautiful St Emilion (but get there early)
* Tram-ride into the narrow streets and squares of central Bordeaux and soak up the history
Service: The service pre-holiday was excellent. The service in France from the local agent was poor
Product: These are good villas but they are expensive. There is no cooling at all not even fans and the pool did not look like it had been cleaned.
Product Comment: Thank you - the Aquitaine coast is quite an expensive destination, however you should expect a few fans and we're very sorry if the pool wasn't as clean as it should have been. We are always on hand to chase these sorts of things up during your stay if things aren't happening locally.
