The Experience

Come for a traditional farmhouse with unspoilt architecture deep in the unique countryside of the Landes – close to Biarritz, mountains and the wonderful beaches of the Atlantic. Bring everybody because there’s an enormous amount of space with a vast, beamed sitting room, lofty dining room and a library packed with French books. Floors are wooden, windows are tall and the kitchen a pleasure to cook in with a central wooden table and basics for cooking in the cupboards. You’ll find fresh eggs from the happy hens pottering outdoors.

Visit the herd of goats and you can buy the cheese made on the farm. The garden and parkland are filled with cork oaks and rhododendrons, just the ticket for hide and seek and there’s a roomy above-ground pool. Bedrooms and bathrooms are unfussy and simple with antique furniture and lovely views.

Lakes and woodland nearby are full of wildlife for magical walks and swimming. You can bring your horse here too – there’s a box, stable and 5 acres of grazing.

James' house is perfect for holidays with friends and children. The children particularly enjoyed the pool and the bikes that they were able to use safely around the property given the surface of the ground. The garden is lovely, the surrounding trees provide plenty of shade. The kitchen equipment and the outdoor furniture comfortably allow everyone to eat together (there were 15 of us, 8 adults + 7 children). The house is in its original condition, which gives it its charm and it's very pleasant to stay in.

Rodolphe, Chapet

This is a truly special place. It is a traditional Landes farmhouse, as authentic and unspoiled as you can get, with a vast park and still attached to its farmland where a shepherd still takes his flock out to graze for the day. It is lost in time in the most charming way.

Nicky, Sawday's Inspector

A charming house that's ideal for family stays with children and teenagers. The many outdoor games available were a wonderful way to spend our time especially with the good weather we had. We didn't dare use the bikes though as we didn't have locks. Thank you very much.


Half an hour away from beaches and 1 hour from the Basque Country, this is the perfect family home for big groups of friends and family with children too. It's fully equipped: games for children, table football, table tennis, swimming pool, bikes... and a range cooker, griddle, and barbecue for cooking.

The neighbourhood

This is famously flat marshland between Bordeaux and the Pyrenees – a land of shepherds and ancient oak forests. The local village, Castets, is very beautiful with a church and a café/restaurant. There are festivals (an asparagus one in May) celebrating the unique folk culture of the area. Borrow bikes and head off on quiet roads, and visit Hossegor for the famous surf beach and smart restaurants.

Local points of interest from James Vitrac

  • Enjoy space, flowers, trees to reconnect with nature. Witness a revival farm with the return of sheeps, goats in our old agropastoral buildings such as the “Carriou” across the road. A real “Airial Landais” with pastoral life.
  • Just walk 2 miles through sand paths to discover our lovely and refreshing river L’Escourion hidden in a wild forest.
  • Surf powerful waves in Saint Girons beach, Contis, Anglet, Biarritz… Swim in the ocean or in typical lakes such as Léon, Soustons, Hossegor, Arjuzan, Mimizan, Biscarosse, Arcachon…
  • Visit our lovely country that had a long history with England starting with Eleanor of Aquitaine, Henry II, Richard the Lionheart who influenced our vineyards and landscape with golfs and hippodromes… Discover the Béarn fortresses of Gaston Fébus or Pau.


James Vitrac

James, who lives in Bordeaux with his family, inherited this house from an uncle – it's been in the family for over a hundred years. He loves to retreat here for his own holidays and leaves a Guardian tending the farm who will bring you eggs from the hens. James's sister lives nearby and will greet you on arrival.
