Superb house for a relaxing family holiday

The location was brilliant being in the forest and part of an authentic village in Landes complete with Boulangerie., exposition of glass blowing, restaurant etc. We loved the super pool which we didn't venture far from for the first 5 days of our holiday. Huge thanks for providing us with the opportunity to have a super family holiday with 8 adults and 4 children aged between 1 year and 6years. We loved the house and the superb pool.

Relaxing family holiday in a beautiful house and surroundings.

“We have just returned from a family holiday at L’Airial, Moustey. The house was perfect for our family of 11 adults and one child. We spent lazy days chilling by the pool and evenings playing board games. The house is very spacious, comfortable and stylish, with some lovely finishing touches. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and there was plenty of room for us to all eat together as a family, inside and outside. Clownette and BB Clown were very welcoming and explained everything to us on arrival and Nigel has been the perfect host. If you are looking for a relaxing family holiday in a beautiful house and surroundings, look no further than L’Airial.

Seconde année pour nous

Seconde année pour nous à 3 familles à l'Airial et nous avons tous autant apprécié notre séjour ! Les améliorations faites durant l'hiver sont très bien, pratiques et confortables. En 5 valeurs je dirais calme, piscine, fraîcheur, grand terrain, confort de la maison.

Lovely rural retreat

Myself and my family had a wonderful stay in L'Airial. A truly beautiful location in the French countryside. There are several picturesque towns to visit nearby and a beautiful river to kayak on nearby. Highly recommended.

Great place for a big family

Great place for a big family like us. The pool, playing in the garden and the bbq at night. We explored Biarritz, Bordeaux, Cap Ferret, went to the beach at Arcachon and played golf in biscarrosse. We had a great time and thank you Nigel for your wonderful house.

House, garden and pool all lovely, well kept and as advertised.

House, garden and pool all lovely, well kept and as advertised which is obviously important in a bigger group. Good contact before the trip in terms of directing us towards activities, contact details on website, contacts for Clownette, advice about restaurants etc. Local activities plentiful, and really not a long drive at all to get to beaches / lakes etc. Appreciated being provided pool towels - this is very helpful. Very well equipped kitchen - we cooked in the house almost every meal, and there was nothing we felt was missing. Good instructions for getting to the property, including info about the driveway. Nice to have various areas for sitting arranged in the garden - parents liked to follow the shade without having to continually move furniture around. Also really appreciated the nice big outdoor dining table near the pool with good cover on top - we used this for playing board games almost every day, which meant we could all spend time together outside without worrying about people burning in the sun! Great fridge / freezer! Lovely touches like welcome bottle of wine (needed on arrival!) We appreciated there being plenty of wood for the fire - we had a couple of fires on the cooler evenings and it was really lovely. Always plenty of hot water - often not the case in rental properties, so we were impressed by this. Great baby provisions - so helpful for us not to have to take our own cot bed (meant we could bring his car seat instead of hiring one at 7 euros a day!) Good communication about what would be available for him too. Great baby bath - he loved it!

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.
