A Perfect Holiday Retreat! 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Myself, Martin, Karl, Caroline, Paul, Maisy & Ruby would like to thank Sebastien and his family for a fantastic holiday in his beautiful house. It was everything we expected and more. The house was extremely well equipped, comfortable and finished to a beautiful standard and we had plenty of space to spread out and find some individual space. We cannot also fault the organisation and excellent communication with Tracey at Home Away, who was extremely helpful throughout the booking process. We will be back!

Lazy Days in Les Landes!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This delightful and tasteful property was the ideal setting for an extended family holiday. Plenty to entertain all from grandparents to grandchildren. The house was a pleasure to live in, like an extension of the countryside. You could always find a shady corner, even on the hottest days. The grounds were ideal for games or just wandering, the animal park was a daily source of entertainment and our hosts could not have been kinder or more helpful. We sampled the delights of the coast, the lakes, where pedalos and paddle-boards were available and the cycle tracks! We just managed to fit all eight of us in the house, although one child had to sleep in the living room. The lay-out was clearly detailed on the information, however. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to a family who are looking for an outdoor escape!

“Holiday perfection!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“We had a wonderful holiday staying at Cote Nature. Sébastien was waiting to welcome us and show us around the house when we arrived, and we found he had left us some essential provisions in the kitchen (including a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge!). He and his family were so friendly, and happy to answer any questions we had about the house or the region during our stay. The house was perfect for us. It was beautiful and really well equipped, with so many thoughtful little details. The children’s books and toys were an added bonus. We spent a lot of our time outside on the deck, lounging in the hammock chairs or eating leisurely meals around the big table. Our 5 year old loved playing in the large garden around the house, and we visited the animal park almost every day. Beautiful sea and lakes beaches were only a short drive away, and there were plenty of dedicated cycle paths and bike hire shops in the area. All in all a resounding 10/10 from the whole family, thank you!”
Zoe M, June 2015

“This was a fantastic cottage.  The cottage had been thoughtfully designed and included everything we needed  – we wanted for nothing.  The location was great, near the beach and nearby towns. The animal park was an added bonus and our children loved the pony riding and fishing in the park.  Finally, the owners Sebastian and Sabine we incredibly welcoming and hospitable.  No hesitation in recommending this place. It really was a wonderful stay, it was one of those really great holiday experiences that has left a lasting impression on the whole family.”
