The house is on the edge of the peaceful little village of Trensacq. In the morning you can walk to get your bread at the village shop. There is a tennis court within a short walk. The village is situated in the heart of the huge 650,000 acre Parc Regional des Landes, mostly given over to pine forest traversed by the little river Eyre. Canoes can be hired locally to explore the river and bicycles to enjoy the various cycle routes in the park. The nearest beach, Mimizan plage, is about 56km away and that and the lovely Lac de Biscarrosse have proved popular with previous guests at this house. The roads are good and it should take only 45 minutes to drive to the coast. Shops and restaurants are at the villages of Pissos and Labouhayre, 11km and 15km respectively.
