“We had a wonderful time in Soustons. The house is right on the lake so much to the childrens' delight we had the pleasure of dining with a family of ducks every morning. There is a child friendly restaurant and a more formal restaurant 2 and 5 minutes walk away, also on the lakefront. There is lots to do on the surrounding area - there are lovely pine forests for cycling in and the nearby beaches are expansive and excellent for surfing (or boogie boarding for the non-hardcore like us!). Javier and Aurora kindly left us bicycles and an inflatable kayak to explore the lake and forests. It was a pleasure dealing with Javier throughout. Thank you so much to Javier and Aurora for letting us stay in their lovely house and to enjoy this wonderful part of France.”
Xavier's reviewsAs a host (3)
“We exchanged our house with Javier's house in Soustons. The communication with Javier was easy and pleasant. Arriving in Soustons we found a lovely clean house with a nice garden at the border of the lake. The house was comfortable and pleasant. Javier did everything to receive us as guests, including a bottle of champagne in the fridge. Coming back in The Netherlands we found our house clean and in excellent condition. Thanks Javier. We truly recommend this house.”
“We stayed in Javier's home during the month of August 2010 and he and his family stayed in ours in London. The house in Soustons is lovely, very well equipped and right on a beautiful lake where ducks come up to join you for breakfast. There are a number of wonderful beaches nearby and many towns with great shops and restaurants. I would not hesitate in recommending this house as a wonderful French experience.”
Where is it?
Soustons is a coastal village in the Aquitaine region http://www.tourisme-aquitaine.fr/en within 200 km of endless white sand beaches that stretch from Biarritz (50 km South) all the way to Bordeaux (150 km North). It is 20 km from Hossegor and Capbreton world famous for their shopping and surfing beaches and their nightlife in summer. Plenty more "mellow" beaches and surfing can be found along the beaches of Soustons and further north. Thanks to the Gulf-stream the ocean is warm (22 ºC) and well suited for all nautical activities. At 10 km, the Seignosse golf-course is rated among the top ten of France. We are only an hour away from the Pyrenees mountains (>3000 metres) that offer great mountaineering and hiking possibilities on their French and Spanish sides. Biarritz airport is only 30 minutes away and Bilbao airport, 2 hours away. For a complete change of scenery and culture, Spain is only 60 km away (less than an hour) with rapid access to San Sebastian, Pamplona and Bilbao (Guggenheim museum) and the spectacular Basque coast with picturesque villages. Bordeaux and its vineyards can be reached in 1.5 hours. Toulouse in 3 hours.
