Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Petit Bourriche in the south west of France. The house has been completely renovated and is located approximately one hour south of Bordeaux. The house rests within a national forest, and is surrounded by woodland on all sides and is within the boundaries of the traditional village of Garein. The property is available to rent all year round for any duration. If you would like to get away from the unrelenting hustle and bustle of everyday life then this family orientated property and location will not fail to deliver. Chambre d'hote at the house is also available upon request. Please contact us for more details. When being rented we will stay in the Gite that is also on site. This allows guests to be met upon arrival and for the swimming pool and grounds to be maintained... Welcome to Petit Bourriche in the south west of France. The house has been completely renovated and is located approximately one hour south of Bordeaux.

If you would like to get away from the unrelenting hustle and bustle of everyday life then this family orientated property and location will not fail to deliver. Chambre d'hote at the house is also available upon request. Please contact us for more details. When being rented we will stay in the Gite that is also on site. This allows guests to be met upon arrival and for the swimming pool and grounds to be maintained throughout your stay. The ground floor consists of a large kitchen/diner with gas hob and electric oven. There is a fridge freezer and a large dining table which will seat 8. The living room has a good sized flat screen TV and DVD player with plenty of DVD films available. The main feature of the living room is the large log burning fire which helps to heat the whole house during the winter months. Also on the ground floor is a large bathroom with a bath and separate shower. The toilet is in a separate small bathroom. The entrance hallway is large enough to house under the stairs a washing machine and free standing freezer. All bedrooms are located on the first floor. Bedroom 1 has a double bed plus an ensuite bathroom with toilet and bath with shower attachment. Bedroom 2 is the mezzanine and is in between the bedrooms. It has two single beds and a pull out double sofa bed. Bedroom 3 is a large room with a Kingsize bed and a double sofa bed. (There is 4th bedroom on the ground floor which we use ourselves but we use this for storage when the house is being let and is not available) During the winter months wall mounted electric heaters can be used alongside the log fire to keep the house warm. The extensive grounds allow plenty of space for family games. There is a good size swimming pool and plenty of space to sunbathe and eat alfresco. A decked area and BBQ are also located next to the pool. In the garden there is a large Grange that contains a Gite and additional accommodation for when the house is booked. The Gite can be booked on its own and sleeps 5 comfortably. Previous guests and visitors have always commented on how peaceful and tranquil the location is without being too far away from local amenities.More

About the neighbourhood
The Landes national park is part of over 5000 square miles of forest which stretches from Bordeaux down to the Spanish border. The beach itself is 50 minutes away and is manned by life guards in the summer and is a real surfers paradise. There is a lake that is 25 minutes from the house that has a man made beach and enables visitors to rent kayaks and cycle around the lake. It is free to enter. There is a pizzeria in the village if you don't want to cook and a small restaurant that serves very traditional French cuisine. The local population are very friendly and if you fancy some shopping then there is a large shopping mall 25 minutes away or you can always go to Bordeaux.
How to get there
There are 3 airports within easy reach (Bordeaux, Biarritz and Pau). Time to drive from Calais is approx. 11 hours with breaks and the journey is mostly motorway. The TGV goes via Bordeaux where there are plenty of car hire companies. We will give you specific directions when you book.
