The town centre is 1.5kms away with its many shops, restaurants and bars. It is a short cycle through the pineforest to the boulangerie for croissants and fresh bread. The resort of Lacanau is 45 minutes drive from Bordeaux's Merignac airport if flying and offers over 20kms of stunning sandy beaches (home to world championship surfing competitions) and is an ideal location for family holidays.
The pine forest offers over 50km of cyclable tracks along the coastline and inland to Bordeaux. It is a mecca for outdoor pursuits. St Malo ferry port is an 8 hour drive away. For culture and history, it is an hour to central Bordeaux. The vineyards of Paulliac and Margot to name a few are under an hour away.

About Karen Simmonds
My family and I live in London. We settled here from having left school and uni. I used to work in SW France and know the area well. When my husband and I visited Lacanau Ocean about fourteen years ago, he feel in love with the area too and so we bought our house off plan. The children have spent each summer enjoying the house and the area. There is so much on offer in the area and we love our time there. Decisions are tough - beach or lake tend to be the hardest choices to make!
Karen Simmonds purchased this house in 2003
Why Karen Simmonds chose
We holiday here every year with our family and love everything about the house and its location - half way between the beach and the lake. One can cycle easily to both places. Its a 5 min cycle to the boulangerie, beach and tennis courts. The cul de sac is quiet and safe for the children.
What makes this house unique
Overlooking the golf course - the 9th hole, a shared swimming pool, close to cycle paths, close by to town centre, lake and beaches, tennis.
