Villa Margaux from Select Villas
Villa Margaux from Select Villas - From 689€-3158€ per Week
French fishing port of Gujan Mestras in Arcachon bassin , Gironde, France
Villa Margaux from Select Villas is a spacious four-bedroom property with private heated pool on a holiday park set in verdant surroundings in the pretty village of Salles. Lots of activities on site and nearby. Easy 40 minute drive to Bordeaux.
Chateau de Salles is a holiday park with a difference. Located within the verdant grounds of a chateau, there is a real feeling of spaciousness about the place. The hundred or so properties are spread out with large open expanses of parkland sweeping right up to the open gardens of the quality holiday homes.
The atmosphere is distinctly low-key, yet there is an abundance of facilities on site to keep both young and old happy and entertained. These include a large heated pool, kids’ pool, play area, bike hire, two tennis courts, squash, gym as well as a bar/restaurant.
Children can enjoy the freedom to roam the park, make new friends and enjoy the facilities on site in relative safety.
This low density parkland development has been designed in sympathy with the local traditional style. The villas with pools were all built within the last ten years and are furnished in a modern and tasteful style with high-quality fittings. The non-pool properties were mostly built within the last 20 years and the quality standards are rigorously maintained by the park management.
This peaceful park is surrounded by mature pine trees, sheltering it from the world outside, with a smattering of trees throughout the park offering some shade.
The park is surrounded by massive pine forests, close to vast freshwater lakes and within easy reach of the wide sandy beaches along the coast. Arcachon has safe and sandy beaches within 40 min’ drive. The nearby village of Salles is a short walk away. The attraction of Chateau de Salles is that suits both those who want to just relax and unwind and also families who want to be active on, or around, the site. The Atlantic coast is just 34 kilometres from the park.

Traffic-free cycle network
A network of long-distance, traffic-free cycle routes criss-crosses Aquitaine with one passing right through Salles itself. This means it is possible to cycle all the way to the coast at either Arcachon or Biscarosse, or inland as far as the attractive cathedral town of Bazas.
The Landes forest on your doorstep
Salles is surrounded by the largest forested area in Europe. This huge, wooded area of mainly pine trees is home to some fascinating flora and fauna. Squirrels, numerous types of birds and even deer can be seen regularly in the parkland. To prevent wild boar from entering, the park has been surrounded by a perimeter fence. A gate through the fence leads down to the river l’Eyre which runs just next to the park and can be explored on foot, or by canoe.
Places to visit include Dune du Pilat located south of Arcachon, an immense sand dune, in effect the largest sand dune in Europe, nearly 3km long and over 100m high. Also worth a visit is Sanguinet Lake: a freshwater Lake which offers a wide range of watersports activities as well a sandy beach supervised by lifeguards (high season only).
Arcachon: Attractive seaside resort with long, straight stretch of wide, sandy beaches backed by pine forests, with one major exception: Arcachon Bay.
Bordeaux: Bordeaux has been a major port since Roman times and is synonymous with fine wines. The city has many elegant buildings and is best explored on foot for window-shopping along the many pedestrianised streets or strolling along the waterfront taking in the impressive vista.
Other places to visit include the chic holiday resort of Biarritz and Paulliac in the Medoc wine region and surrounded by some of the most renowned wine-producing chateaux in the world including Mouton-Rothschild, Lafite-Rothschild and Latour.
