Holiday Home in South West France - Available Summer 2011

Short post just to say that the house is available for summer rentals 2011.  Further details can be found at http://www.frenchholidayfinder.com/index.php?option=com_iproperty&view=property&id=347&Itemid=1
 Some of the activities that are all available locally to Hourtin
 The children can walk to the 'Childrens Island' from the house in about 5 mins, and there they will find the castle, and the giant spider plus smaller things for younger children.  We used to enjoy cycling around it as it is surrounded by water and cannot be accessed by car.


 This is Hourtin Plage which is about a ten minute drive from the house.  Surfing is a regular sport on this beach along with body boarding.  Lessons are also available.

 The ducks used to feel very welcome when we lived there.
 Hiring a very boat at Hourtin Lake which again is only about a 5 minute walk from the house.

 Lessons on the lake are also available but here the water is nice and calm.
