Holiday Rental House
Three bedroom villa with access to large, heated shared pool on a holiday park with a difference. Situated within the verdant grounds of a Chateau de Salles, there is a real feeling of spaciousness about the place. The 100 or so properties are spread out with large open expanses of parkland sweeping right up to the open gardens of the quality holiday homes. The atmosphere is distinctly low-key, yet there is an abundance of facilities on site to keep both young and old happy and entertained. These include a large heated pool, kids' pool, play area, bike hire, tennis, squash, gym as well as a bar/restaurant. Children can enjoy the freedom to roam the park, make new friends and enjoy the facilities on site in relative safety.

Situated within the verdant grounds of a Chateau de Salles, there is a real feeling of spaciousness about the place. The 100 or so properties are spread out with large open expanses of parkland sweeping right up to the open gardens of the quality holiday homes. The atmosphere is distinctly low-key, yet there is an abundance of facilities on site to keep both young and old happy and entertained. These include a large heated pool, kids' pool, play area, bike hire, tennis, squash, gym as well as a bar/restaurant. Children can enjoy the freedom to roam the park, make new friends and enjoy the facilities on site in relative safety. Outside the main summer season, Chateau de Salles provides a great base for exploring the region. After a day out sightseeing you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings, unwind and maybe even take a dip in the heated pool. This low density parkland development has been designed in sympathy with the local traditional style. The interiors are particularly spacious – much more so than similar capacity holiday homes. The villas with pools were all built within the last ten years and are furnished in a modern and tasteful style with high-quality fittings. The non-pool properties were mostly built within the last 20 years and the quality standards are rigorously maintained by the park management. This lovely, peaceful park is surrounded by mature pine trees, sheltering it from the world outside, with a smattering of trees throughout the park offering some shade. The park is situated at the heart of Aquitaine, surrounded by massive pine forests, close to vast freshwater lakes and within easy reach of the wide sandy beaches along the coast. The attractive seaside resort of Arcachon with its grand, ‘Belle Epoque’ villas and safe, sandy beaches is within 40 minutes’ drive. The nearby village of Salles is a short walk away down the main chateau driveway. The attraction of Chateau de Salles is that suits both those who want to just relax and unwind and also families who want to be active on, or around, the site. Please note: Photos shown are examples of villas only but decor and furnishings may vary. This is a no smoking property. Property size: 115m² LIVING AREA Open-plan room with living, dining and kitchen areas. Sofa, easy chairs, dining table, television, DVD and fireplace. French windows onto terrace.

About the neighbourhood
A network of long-distance, traffic-free cycle routes criss-crosses Aquitaine with one passing right through Salles itself. This means it is possible to cycle all the way to the coast at either Arcachon or Biscarosse, or inland as far as the attractive cathedral town of Bazas. Salles is surrounded by the largest forested area in Europe. This huge, wooded area of mainly pine trees is home to some fascinating flora and fauna. Squirrels, numerous types of birds and even deer can be seen regularly in the parkland. To prevent wild boar from entering, the park has been surrounded by a perimeter fence. A gate through the fence leads down to the river l’Eyre which runs just next to the park and can be explored on foot, or by canoe.
How to get there
Bordeaux is a popular destination for those flying to Aquitaine (45 minutes’ drive). Biarritz airport is also an option (1 hour 30 minutes). La Rochelle to Chateau de Salles is a 2 hour 15-minute drive but adds flight options if other routes are not available or there is a service from your local airport. The drive from the Channel ports to Aquitaine should be not undertaken lightly. For most people the journey from home in the UK to south west France will involve an overnight hotel (or an overnight ferry crossing). The much-improved motorway system across the north of France now offers the possibility of avoiding Paris if heading from Calais taking you via Rouen and Le Mans before joining the main A10 motorway towards Bordeaux. Different hotel chains provide different room types such as ...
