Holiday Rental House
Maubuisson is an unspoilt, unpretentious and relatively undiscovered French holiday location. Perfect for family beach holidays but also great for cycling and outdoor pursuits as well as the Bordeaux wine region and the historic city itself. The house is a very short walk from the fabulous child friendly beach at Maubuisson and its range of restaurants and shops, and only 10 minutes drive from fantastic surfing and wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast at Carcans Plage and Lacanau. The house has just been extended and completely refurbished throughout and now offers top quality home from home facilities with a new kitchen and wet shower room/toilet as well as a new family bathroom. The main bedroom has a king size double bed, there is a 'dormitory' with 4 single beds perfect for kids...Maubuisson is an unspoilt, unpretentious and relatively undiscovered French holiday location.

The main bedroom has a king size double bed, there is a 'dormitory' with 4 single beds perfect for kids, there is a second double room with king sized bed and a small room which ideally is a single, but can be a double if you pull out the Storabed from underneath (the beds then are both at the same height and together form a 6' double) There is an extensive new deck/terrace outside the property with a built-in barbecue with views over the lake, with plenty of sunbathing/room for playing. There is a small garden and trees which provide welcome shade to parts of the terrace and a pleasant ambience. There are tables and chairs and two sunloungers.More

About the neighbourhood
Maubuisson is situated on the southern coast of France's largest inland freshwater lake, Lac Hourtin, which is approx 18km by 4km. There is sailing, waterskiing and kite surfing on the lake. The house is less than 100m ( a very short walk) from the lake and it has a long stretch of well maintained, fine, soft sandy beach with safe paddling and swimming for all. There is a range of shops and restaurants in the village - 5/10 minutes easy walk - as well as the tourist office, cashpoint, and cinema. There are golf courses, horse riding, cycling and a range of outdoor pursuits and activities within easy reach. The Bordeaux wine region is approximately 30 minutes drive north/east - the closest area being the Haut Medoc/Pauillac. Many vineyards, including the famous Chateau Rothschild, are ope...
Getting around
We are approximately 40 minutes drive from Bordeaux Merignac Airport and 45 minutes drive from central Bordeaux. Taxis can be booked from the airport or of course try Uber, The closest ferry port is St Malo (Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth) which is approximately 7 hours drive. There is a new fast train service from Paris to Bordeaux and local coaches heading to Lacanau Ocean stop at Maubuisson. You don't need a car at the house as it is very close to the beach and an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants you will need in Maubuisson.
