  • Description


    Chris and I live on the south-west coast of France, close to the ocean. We love the sound of the waves and the birds and we really enjoy sharing dinners & beers with our friends under the "pine tree parasol".
    We bought a house with a huge garden and we run it as a small bed & breakfast in the summer. we then transformed the old horse boxes into our house, that we continue to build.
    Chris is english and I (Morgane) am french. We both have travelled everywhere around the world before making our dream come true. We are looking forward to finish our project and having people from all over the world staying with us.

    There are a lot of beautiful things you can enjoy around here! World class waves just 2km away from the house. So if you love surfing or want to try it for the first time, this is the place to be! Chris and I speak english and french at home, so you can practice both and I will be happy to teach you french :)
    Besides surfing there are a lot of other activities to do: great bicycle tracks through the forests of Les Landes, Stand-Up-Paddle board, there are lakes everywhere for beautiful walks and hikes, the famous golf course of Moliets is only 5 minutes away from our house and we have the best sunsets :)
    Our house is located exaclty in between Moliets and Messages which are both really nice villages to go out in the evening, to catch up with friends, have dinners and drinks and meet new people from all around.
    The south-west coast in France is a great place to meet seasonnaires and make new friends for life!
    and there is bikes for you in the house :)
