The Local Area

Lacanau-Ocean is the pre-eminent sea-side town of the Medoc Bleu, an area noted for a wide variety of activities and attractions.

Ocean beaches: wide, sandy Atlantic beaches are long enough that you can always find a quiet spot to yourself even in high summer just a short way away form the centre of town.

Cycling and hiking trails: over 120 kms of safe cycle tracks lead through the forests up and down this stretch of coast, from Carcans-Maubuisson north of Lacanau, all the way, ultimately, to the Pointe de Cap Ferret to the south. Several local bike hire shops, it's a lovely way to get around.

The local lakes are a great opportunity for whiling away the hours in tranquility, listening to the water lapping the sandy shores. The surrounding forest are perfect for picnics and rambling. The lake beach at Moutchic is popular, but Longarisse is the one the locals go to!

Customer Reviews By Feefo

Review posted on 30 Jul 2018

Service: Feefo Service Rating Product: Feefo Product Rating

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.

On 07-Aug-2018 we responded:



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.
