Villa Le Bassin
Taussat les Bains, Aquitaine, France
Additional Location Information
This beach front property is hidden away in Taussat/Lanton, just a 30 minutes drive from ravishing vineyards and Merignac/Bordeaux airport. Merignac has many scheduled and seasonal international flights arriving direct or via Paris every day. There are also daily frequent flights from other domestic cities.
Activities at and around the villa range from deeply relaxing to highly animate, from cultural to inspirational. The swimming pool draws guests on warm summer days, while the petanque court asks for some team play. Guests can explore the direct environment by strolling onto the beach, boating, horseback riding, or cycling. Bicycles are at the guest's disposal for those who just want to discover the local fisherman villages, or those who want to spin further afield to the Atlantic Ocean.
Favoured choices for daytrips include a helicopter flight of the Bordeaux vineyards crowned with a wine tasting, the endless beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, a climb up to the highest dune of Europe Dune de Pyla, a boating outing to the Arguin sandbank and the Ile aux Oiseaux, or kayaking over the Leyre. And don't forget your binoculars to watch the different bird species, such as the Sandwich Tern or the Oyster Catcher, while hiking through the protected natural bird migration park Domaine de Certes.
Nestled in the heart of the forest and well protected from dominant winds, the fresh-water lakes North and South of the Bay offer yet another option for safe swimming, sailing lessons and fishing.
Less then half an hour east lays the world famous French Bordeaux Wine District. Guests can relish the renowned wines from Saint-Emilion, Graves, Sauternes, Medoc, Entre-deux-Mers and Pessac-Leognan, to name but a few. Soak up the vineyards in a luxury car with a private chauffeur giving you the freedom to taste as many appellations you like. Guests may stock their own wines in the house cellar to enjoy during returning visits.
The possibilities are almost endless: horseback riding through the thick pine forests or on the infinite beaches of white sand, golfing on the Internationally acclaimed Golf du Medoc Chateaux course at the foot of the vineyards, or for those seeking more adrenaline driven sports, what about speed sailing, paragliding at the Dune de Pyla or kite surfing?
