Suitable for my elderly mother

We wanted somewhere quiet and rural but with easy access, suitable for my elderly mother. Although keen to involve herself in all holiday activities, she cannot really manage stairs or walk very far unaided. Nigel was so helpful beforehand over the small but crucial details. He reassured us that we could drive up very close to the front door and even knew the width of the entrance and internal doorways. The only potential hazard we found was down to the age of the house; the front door had a small ridge to step over, tricky for a wheelchair. The downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom and toilet was perfect. Mum could be independent but still join in with the family. We all ate together round the fabulous dining table and she was especially happy cooking in the modern, spacious kitchen. We had a lovely holiday, thank you Nigel!

Thank you Bunty for your comments. In respect of the small ridge/step at the front door, I now provide a custom-built ramp on request so this should further improve accessibility for future guests. Thanks for pointing this out and I hope it was not too inconvenient for you. I am glad you all had an enjoyable holiday and please pass on my best regards to your mother.

I’ll be going back

Kate recommends L'Airial. Nice big grounds that are extremely separate from the rest of the world. Great sized pool for playing and floating the days away. House is cosy and big at the same time - lots of space for everyone! modern new kitchen was the cherry on the cake for me - a pleasure to cook in in true slow holiday style. I’ll be going back

Slice of Paradise

We had such a good time in this beautiful House!! At first I was sceptical about paying so much for an Airbnb, especially in a town I’d never heard of, but finally it was totally worth it. Moustey itself is a authentic cute little village with zero tourists and all the essentials (bakery, general store, tabac, restaurants & more) and it is close to Archachon which has a beach and plenty of other things to do (I recommend the “fromagerie de Cathy” for the cheese lovers). There is heaps of space in the peaceful garden for kids and pets to run around. the house is super well equipped.. Especially the kitchen. Nigel has about every food preparation robot you could imagine. One tip for those looking to rent : a car in essential, unless you plan on staying in there the whole time (which is easily done as well ). Will definitely come back to this slice of paradise one day. Loved it.

Superbe! Je recommande cette location... Nous avons passé un formidable week end en famille! La maison est très chaleureuse (tout comme l'accueil) et vous y trouverez tout le nécessaire pour passer un agréable séjour. La localisation de la propriété est idéale, vous pourrez apprécier le calme du petit village de Moustey ou prendre la voiture et profiter des alentours (Arcachon, Biscarosse, le lac de Sanguinet...etc). Un seul petit point négatif (petite note pour le propriétaire), la taille du réfrigérateur... un peu petit pour une dizaine de personnes.

Dear Julia, Thank you for your kind review and I am very happy you had a great time at L'Airial. You have given very useful feedback about the small fridge size and I completely agree with you. I have now purchased a large American-style fridge with much more space as well as water/ice dispenser. Kind regards, Nigel

Fabulous house and pool.

Just had two wonderful weeks stay in L'Airial. Fabulous house and pool. Went with my family. Highly recommend. We loved it! Rural in the pine forest, but villages of Moustey and Pissos nearby. Would love to go back.

Absolute Ruhe, tolle Ausstattung für eine größere Gruppe von Reisenden

Wir waren zu 9t (4 Erwachsene und 5 Kinder) und haben ein Haus vorgefunden, dass voll unseren Erwartungen entsprochen hat. Absolute Ruhe, tolle Ausstattung für eine größere Gruppe von Reisenden, geschmackvolle Ausstattung, toller, grosser Pool ... die Aufzählung lässt sich beliebig fortsetzen. Die Lage war ebenfalls perfekt - abgeschieden, aber Bordeaux und der Atlantik gut erreichbar. Nigel war sehr aufmerksam und hat auf Anfragen immer kurzfristig reagiert. Die Betreuung vor Ort war ebenfalls perfekt. Uneingeschränkte Empfehlung !
