This was our project as a family to find a tranquil home with privacy , peace and nature but near to transport and amenities.
The house is a beautiful old landaise style house with original woodwork and features.
We used the light and space to give the effect of being surrounded by the tones of nature both inside and out.
It is sparsely but comfortably furnished and has all that is needed to have an enjoyable stay
Private, quiet and secluded with ample opportunity for indoor outdoor living but close to the autoroute to Bordeaux, Canale laterale, Marmande , the River Garonne and all the chateaux and vignobles of the region.
There is a spa, golf course and lake with beach 20 minutes away and the ocean and hour and a half away.

I am a doctor and love the North East of England-amazingly!
My grandparents owned Dunstan Steads farm and the cottage is one of the old farm workers cottages. I remember steering the landrover along the farm road leading up to the Dunstan Square from the Steads and feeling as if I was looking down over the castle and Ocean. My feet couldn t even nearly reach the pedals-Gramp decided the speed and pressed the brakes.
I grew up here as a small child and this area holds a special magic-it s the landscape of myths and legends.
My family and I love to walk the coastal and moorland paths rain or shine.
We live in town during the weeks but get away to the cottage on the occasional weekend - rugby,football and other school events allowing.
We like the cottage to be used and for other people to get to know and hopefully appreciate the area.
I suppose my motto would be 'get out there and go for it-dont wait for the weather'
An English cliche I suppose
