We were three families (6 adults and five kids aged 5 to1,5yrs) that spent a week in the very big house. It was larger than we needed. We had all dinners outside the kitchen under the big chestnut tree. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking, and the store (Le Clerc) is only 20 mins drive. A rental car is a must as there is not much to do in the surrounding area.
Lots of winemakers a located in the area and we visited Chateau Loudenne and took its free tour with tasting (1h),
The weather you cannot do anything about, it is what it is. We had mostly sun and temperatures from 20-30 degrees. On the colder days the pool was not as much used as on the warmer days.
The kids liked the big yard and the pool, the grown-ups liked the cooking and the tranquility. We did trips to Soulac-sur-Mer, Carcans Plage, Hourtin Plage. There are a number of beach 30 minutes to an hour’s drive from the house
