About Frederic Fernandez
I am a pretty busy finance professionals working for 10y now in the consumer goods industry. I have lived and worked in France, England, Switzerland, Central Africa and India. I am currently living in Zurich. Among all the places I visited and lived in, my favourite is Les Landes in South West France and I decided to buy a house there in 2012: La Villa Fleurie. La Villa Fleurie is a pure heaven, it is a very comfortable and peaceful place where someone can live easily all across the year. I enjoy all seasons there. From June to October, it is the best time to swim in the ocean, enjoy the pool and surf. Outside this period, long walk on the beach and in the forest are extremely relaxing. In winter, temperature never drops too low (minimum 5 degrees in the day but often 15 degrees); I enjoy cycling or running in the forest; it is not rare to meet rabbits, hares, stags and wild boars all across the year. Evenings are spent reading books in front of the wood fire.
Frederic Fernandez purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Frederic Fernandez chose Saint-Julien-en-Born
It is simply the only place in the world where I can unplug from work in less than 24h which is a huge challenge.

We had a great time at Villa Fleurie , the weather was fantastic and its great to sit and relax by the pool and enjoy the peace and quiet in a lovely setting . The villa has everything you need and and is very private and in a great location . Fred the owner was very helpful and Yannick met us on arrival to help us settle in . Contis beach is a 20 minute bike ride away with a great beach and enough bars and shops and St. Julian en Born even closer in the opposite direction . We will definitely stay again and missing the sun and quiet already .
Thank you for this kind review. I am delighted you & your family had a very relaxing time at La Villa Fleurie. It is indeed very well located, sunny, quiet and so close to everything also which make it perfect for family holidays. We really love sharing our passion for this special place and its surroundings. I wish you and your family a great Autumn in England. We all look forward welcoming you again. Best,
Beautiful house, perfect holiday
After many weeks of desperate searches we've found this beautiful house in the heart of Landes. All looked perfect into description but the reality was MUCH more! The house is perfect! After years of experience into renting houses in France I can say that this is the first one which was much better than the description, a beautiful surprise. It has a very nice garden, perfect maintained, with all facilities. We even used the pool (it's size allowed water to get to 25 deg in a sunny day). The house is also excellent cleaned and maintained, very well equipped. Really, nothing is missing and nothing is excessive. Frederic was very helpful and supportive not even in terms of formalities but also providing us with good advices. On our arrival Yannick welcomed us so after a long drive, we've get the keys of the house in the shortest time. Few words about activities there: the house is placed near a charming pine forest. It's the best place for tracking and cycling, there are many kilometers of cycling tracks available. The Contis beach is nearby (a good cycling exercise to go there). The beach is excellent for surfers but because of it's size could be the paradise of those looking for quiet and wild corners. We've found excelent restaurants (I recommend La Terrasse in Contis, L'Auberge du Born in Saint Julien and L'Estanquet in Lit et Mixe) very good beverage shops. It's not too far to drive in a rainy day to Biarritz or to Arcachon region. You ca see there the Pyla dune and eat oysters in Gujan Mestras. I am fully recommend this house to all those loving healthy air and water, quiet and wild places and good food.
Thanks again Frederic.

I hope we will get the pleasure to meet soon in Zurich.
Reposant séjour dans les Landes
Accueil chaleureux, maison charmante au calme, région magnifique - merci pour tout
Chaleureux et reposant
Exceeded all expectations
My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay. There was plenty of information about local attractions provided in the villa and to our great surprise there was a welcome pack filled with local delicacies. The property is spacious, homely and very well equipped. I would definitely book again, though next time, I would book during the summer season so that we could benefit even more from local attractions, some of which are closed off peak.
Je vous remercie Frédéric pour votre accueil. Nous avons passé des vacances inoubliables. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la proximité de la plage de Contis et le calme de la foret qui entoure la villa. La villa était en ligne avec nos attentes : très bien équipée, confortable, propre et une literie de qualité. Belle maison landaise. Merci également pour le champagne frais et la corbeille de bienvenue, On reviendra avec plaisir en juillet / août pour profiter de la jolie piscine !
