The main lounge is impressively large and spacious. The high wooden beamed ceilings create a feeling of grandeur complimented by the beautiful parquet flooring, wood-panelled walls and the grand oak staircase. A revitalizing yet relaxed atmosphere is created by the neutral tones and contemporary finishes that so obviously dominate the room. An abundance of natural light floods the room through the arch of small windows which border the grand front door. Throughout summer, you can open the door to allow in the lovely sunshine, fresh air and floral scents. Adjoining the main lounge is the TV/reading room. This cosy room has a lovely marble fireplace, comfortable sofas, satellite TV, DVD player and a selection of DVD's, books and magazines for your enjoyment. From either the billiard room or the main lounge, you enter the elegant dining room. The marble fireplace, candles, parquet floors and high ceilings altogether create a very special atmosphere. There are a number of tables allowing you to enjoy more intimate dining or if you are a large group, they can be joined together to create a more celebratory setting. French doors lead to a lovely terrace on where breakfast can be enjoyed “alfresco” style.
The nine bedrooms have been tastefully refurbished and include quality linens, extra pillows, fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers complemented with L'Occitane Verbena toiletries for all guests comfort and enjoyment. The manoir accommodates 18 guests in eight superb bedrooms each with a private bathroom (one of the bedrooms has an adjoining double bedroom making 9 bedrooms in total).
On the first floor there is a hall area with wooden floors and sofa, 3 large en-suite bedrooms (two with original marble fireplaces, one with large terrace) plus a large two bedroom suite with south facing balcony, marble fireplace, dressing room, bathroom, Jacuzzi bath, WC and spacious east facing terrace. All rooms have their own television & DVD player.
On the second floor there is another hall area with wooden floors, 4 large en-suite bedrooms (one with sauna, two with balconies and two with original fireplaces). All rooms have their own television and DVD player.
The manor sits right in the middle of a six acre square estate with a secluded feel, being separated from the outside world by mature trees on all sides. A variety of shrubs and hedges, flowers and lawns surround the villa with a small river bordering one edge of the grounds. The private 15x7m heated outdoor swimming pool includes a new electric security roller cover for children's safety when not in use. It is surrounded by 90m2 of terrace with sun loungers and teak furniture for poolside dining, mature gardens with beautiful shrubs and WC and outside shower. Excellent poolside facilities include a brand new table tennis, badminton, croquet, boules, football, Frisbee, basketball, volleyball and even bikes for every guest! The full size court is in perfect condition. Quality tennis racquets and new balls would even keep McEnroe happy! There are new swings and slides adjacent to the tennis court and a full size volleyball setup.
In addition a 8 person hot hub has recently been installed within the secure swimming pool.
The nearest airport is Biarritz (30km) and the nearest village is Soustons, which is walking distance from the manor. The 2.5 hectare estate sits on the edge of the attractive village of Soustons, a village in an exceptional position, bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and its outstanding beaches and on the other side by a large fresh water lake, Lac d'Soustons, suitable for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and swimming.
Soustons is divided into two areas, the town of Soustons, 7 km inland from the coast, located on the southerly end of a large Lake with an overall area of 700 square hectares, and Soustons Beach on the large natural sea fed, salt water lake (with its own beaches & Island) known as the "Lac Marin de Port d'Albret", with an overall area of 51 square hectares. Pine forests surround Soustons village with numerous cycle trails and walking paths leading to the lakes and beaches. Like most of the south west coast, Soustons is something of an outdoor playground.
The villa itself is only 2 minutes from beautiful fresh water lakes, and 10 minutes from wonderful ocean beaches (Soustons, Vieux-Boucau, Hossegor and Moliets). The spa town of Dax, famous for its Hydrotherapy, is just 20 minutes away, Biarritz and Bayonne with their superb shops are just 30 minutes, and just forty-five minutes away are the Pyrenees and Spain.
Three world class golf courses (voted in the World's Top 50) are within fifteen minutes.
South of Bordeaux begins the region of Les Landes. It feels like another world with the coast stretching virtually uninterrupted from the Gironde estuary all the way down to Soustons, Hossegor and Cap Breton before reaching the foothills of the Pyrenees and Basque country. It is remarkably unspoiled, open and natural as the coast is dominated by long stretches of sand washed by broad Atlantic rollers; in all there is more than 220km of coast-line from the Gironde estuary down to the border with Spain with a total of 55 supervised beaches. Climb the dunes and before you, stretching as far as the eye can see, lie the pine forests of Les Landes - 1100 km2 of pine forest planted during the 19th century.
Although the line of the coast may be straight, the variety it encompasses is huge: oyster beds and yachting marinas, fishing villages and vineyards, names of towns and half-timbered houses that seem (and once were) more English than French, the highest sand-dunes in Europe, and where the Cote d'Argent turns – quite literally – into the Cote Basque, some of the Continent's best surfing.
