House overview

Magnificent five bedroom spacious family home in Gascony with private swimming pool. "L'Airial, Moustey" is a charming remote house in peaceful Landes countryside. This lovely maison de maître is a real get-away-from-it-all location, yet only 3kms to the pretty village of Moustey. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room with open fireplace, and spacious living room. Private and securely fenced gardens. 5x11m swimming pool. 45 mins Bordeaux.

The space
L' Airial, Moustey; a delightful country house in rural Landes, Aquitaine built in 1830. 5 minutes to the lovely village of Moustey with its 2 churches, 4 restaurants, Proxi grocery shop, and amazing boulangerie.

The upstairs of house comprises three good-sized bedrooms, a central hallway/lounge/games room (with sofabed), and two bathrooms, each with shower, toilet, and sink (one bathroom option to be used as ensuite as is preferred). Downstairs there are a further two double bedrooms, an accessible bathroom (toilet, bath, shower and sink), a well equipped modern kitchen, a welcoming dining room with open working fireplace (the dining table seats 10 persons), and a large living room (seating 14) with woodburner.

Outside the one acre mature gardens with grand old oak trees and tall pine trees are private and securely fenced. The 5x11m private swimming pool has comfortable pool loungers. The pool's electric hard cover helps keeps the water warm at night and is also necessary for safety when the pool is unattended.

Immediately on the boundary of the property is the forest which ideal for hikes and all manner of outdoor activities. The property is located between the Grande Leyre and the Petite Leyre rivers. These calm rivers are great for kayaking (kayaks available for rent locally) or a bracing dip.

Plenty of local activities for families and groups of friends. Swimming (pool/rivers/lakes/ocean), kayaking (local rental), biking/hiking/jogging on forest trails, dog walking, horse riding, pony trap rides (local stables very close at end of forest track). This location is great for yoga, painting, meditation, or just relaxing and reading. There are plenty of games available in the house including, a whole cupboard of boardgames, badminton set (net plus 6 rackets), table football, and garden lawn darts.

Just 45 mins from Bordeaux airport it is easily accessible by plane, train and automobile.

Minimum Stay
Based on past experience and guest feedback in order to properly enjoy your holiday in L'Airial, Moustey there is a minimum stay of 7 nights. 14 nights is preferred and a corresponding discount is offered.

The house was built in 1830 so regrettably has some limitations in making the space fully wheelchair accessible, nevertheless considerable effort has been made to try to enhance accessibility.
I am happy to discuss in detail if required.

Host interaction with guests
Sorry - I am usually out of country and unavailable in person, but I will always be contactable by email or phone to assist you and check that everything is going well. A friendly and helpful neighbour (speaks French and German) has keys for the property, will do your check-in/check-out and is available in case of any issues with the house. My neighbour is also a wealth of local knowledge and may, on request, be able to help with your local excursion arrangements - eg vineyard tours.

Guest access
You will have the entire property, swimming pool, and gardens all to yourself!

L'Airial, Moustey
British born, but I soon adopted a peripatetic life. After an international career with the United Nations (living and working in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Japan, Russia, Lebanon, USA, France, and Kenya) I moved to live in France at my dream home L'Airial, Moustey with my dog Sami, a rescue from the streets of Kabul. The house is beautiful, peaceful and comfortable - a perfect place to relax and to entertain family and friends.
