Anything to watch out for?

  • The exterior timbers have been re-painted red since the photos were taken and all-but-one of the bathrooms have been renovated (a completely new set of photos will be supplied late Spring 2021)
  • The estate guardian lives in a small cottage in the grounds next to the principal house

Why Soustons?
It's near the beaches and has a 'leafy' and leisurely feel about the place, boosted by the presence of the fabulous Lac de Soustons. The town centre is a nice size and offers the staples of French life plus some good local restaurants including one Michelin-starred eatery nearby. It's not a 'tourist-y' town and this gives it an authentic ambience.
