Your holiday rental at Léon


The House :
Situated on a small road between village and lake ‘La Casa Nova’ is the ideal vacation home for the complete family, two small families or a small group. The house has 120 m2. The 2000 m2 property with old trees back in the garden borders directly on a nature reserve. The lake of Leon (Lac de Leon) is at about 700 yards from the house. The situation is even in high saison generally very quiet. The atlantic beaches are at about 8 kilometers by car in Moliets, Pichelèbe or Arnaouchoc.

The house is conceived for self-catering. The fully equipped american kitchen with dish washer, 4 ring gas stove and oven, two fridges, coffee maker, toaster etc. opens to a spacious and bright dinning- and living area with open fireplace. French windows open to a small breakfast terrace and to the big south terrace on the backside overlooking the garden and the forest of the nature reserve called ‘Courant Huchet’. Here real vacation peace is guaranteed. Garden furniture, parasol, barbecue and sandpit are at your disposal – old trees for some shadow if required.
Each of the three sleeping rooms grouped around the bathroom are meant for two persons and have about 14 m2. The french double beds in all sleeping rooms are 160 to 200 cm big. All beds are equipped with pillows and covers and a set of linen for every booked person. Two of the bedrooms are situated at the forest side of the house and so can be said to be very quiet. If necessary a seventh person could sleep in the living room area – the sofa converts to a perfect single bed. We provide a baby’s bed if needed. The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub with integrated shower cabin, basin and toilette. We do not provide towels. A separate room – laundry room so to say – is equipped with a washing machine to avoid noises in the living room area and the central heating (gaz), which prepares the hot water and quick allover warmth on chilly evenings. The hole living area has a comfortable wood flooring. Most of the wooden furniture is handmade and ecologically treated, like the floor is. We omitted entertainment electronics on purpose – please bring your own, if you need them. Wireless internet is available. Bikes can be rented in the village (700 yd).

The Village :
Leon is situated 3.5 miles from the beach surrounded by the landaisian woods, which are kind of wild between La Casa Nova and the sea. Leon is famous for its natural reserve. Starting at the lake of Leon you might take a boot trip through a jungle like ambiance downstream the ‘Courant Huchet’ to its delta at Moliets Plage. Leon itself is a typical coastal village with an historical center around a market place. In summer a regional products market is held every day. Supermarket, bakery, seafood store, bicycle-rental. surfshop, postoffice, bank and much more is at pedestrian reach (700yd). Restaurants and bistros are found in the center, at the lakeside and in every nearby village.
There is no ‘leon beach’ because between village and beach there is the lake. In this flat sweet water lake bathing, sailing, rowing, windsurfing and pedalo riding is possible.

The Beach :
The beaches are a couple of minutes away by car. More sportive you could get there by bike on comfortable cycle tracks through the woods. Moliets Plage offers everything a certified beach can offer from life-guards to surf schools. Pichelèbe and miles of wild beach offer the contrary: there you are on your own at one of the most beautiful beaches of Europe. “Arnaouchoc” also called “Lette Blanche” (Vielle-Saint-Girons) has lifeguards, but that’s it. Messanges plage (7 miles) is very recommended as well.

The best surf conditions in Europe! Specially the main spots: ‘La Nord’ and ‘Les Estangnots’ near Hossegor are said to be the most powerful beach breaks of the north atlantic. Hossegore is 25 kilometers south of Leon. Best conditions are in autumn – up to 18 feet. Molites, Messanges, Pichelèbe, Arnaouchoc and all other near by beaches offer very good surfing conditions as well and these beaches are suitable for beginners too.
