Magnificent five bedroom 1830's spacious family home in Gascony with private swimming pool. «L'Airial, Moustey» is a charming remote house in peaceful Gascon countryside. This lovely country manor house is a real get-away-from-it-all location in the heart of the forest, yet only 3kms to the pretty village of Moustey. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, modern kitchen, dining room with open fireplace, and a large living room with woodburner. Private and securely fenced gardens. 5x11m swimming pool catches the sun all day. 45 mins to Bordeaux.

The Space

"L'Airial, Moustey" - a beautiful remote house in rural Les Landes, Aquitaine. 3kms to the pretty village of Moustey with its 2 churches, 4 restaurants, Proxi grocery shop, and amazing boulangerie.

The upstairs of house comprises three good-sized bedrooms, a central hallway (with sofabed) and two bathrooms, each with shower, toilet, and sink (one bathroom may, or may not, be used as ensuite as required). Downstairs there are a further two double bedrooms, a bathroom (toilet, bath/shower and sink), a well equipped modern kitchen with Smeg applicances, a welcoming dining room with open working fireplace (the real heart of the house), and a large living room with woodburner.

Pets, especially dogs, are very welcome - my house and garden are doggie heaven (as my past guests have described it).

Outside the 1 acre mature gardens with grand old oak trees and tall pine trees are very private and securely fenced. The 5x11m private swimming pool catches the sun all day and has comfortable pool loungers. Pool has corner steps to 1m shallow end with a slope to 2.3m deep end. The pool's electric hard cover keeps the water warm at night and is also for safety and peace of mind when pool unattended.

Immediately on the boundary of the property is the forest which ideal for hikes and all manner of outdoor activities. The property is located between the Grande Leyre and the Petite Leyre rivers. These small calm rivers are great for kayaking (kayaks available for rent locally) or a bracing dip.

Plenty of local activities for groups of friends or families. Swimming (pool, rivers, lakes, and sea), kayaking (local rental), biking/hiking/jogging on forest trails, hiking, dog walking, horse riding (local stables very close at end of forest track). This location is great for yoga, painting, meditation, relaxing, and reading. There are numerous games available in the house including, a whole trunk of boardgames, badminton set (net plus 6 rackets), table football, and garden lawn darts.

Just 45 mins from Bordeaux airport it is easily accessible by plane, train and automobile.

Interaction with guests

Sorry - I am usually out of country and unavailable in person, but I will always be contactable by email or phone to assist you and check that everything is going well. A friendly and helpful neighbour has keys for the property, will do your check-in/check-out and is available in case of any issues with the house. My neighbour is also a wealth of local knowledge and may, on request, help with your local excursion arrangements - eg vineyard tours.

Special requests for shorter stays will be considered - please contact me directly with your dates; 7 nights minimum applies at all times.

Getting around

Car essential. The approach to the house is along an unpaved forest track (chemin) It is not necessary to have a 4x4/SUV; any normal car will be sufficient - but I suggest to avoid very low clearance sports cars like a Ferrari, McLaren, or Porsche! (search youtube for "airial moustey driveway" to see video of the chemin)

The Area: Moustey Landes

L'Airial is located in Moustey, Landes, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, South West France.

«L'Airial, Moustey» is a great base for exploring the Parc Naturel Régional des Landes de Gascogne. The beaches of the Atlantic coast and two large lakes (Étang de Cazaux et de Sanguinet and Lac de Biscarrosse et de Parentis) are less than an hour away. The fantastic vineyards in region are a great attraction; Léognan in the Graves area of the Bordeaux county has 6 chateaux and is 44kms from the house. Bordeaux city can be reached in under an hour. Bordeaux, renowned for its wines is an exciting metropolis.

Landes, located in the Aquitaine region, is one of the original departments created in the French Revolution; Landes is the second largest department in mainland France. Its straight coast stretches for more than 100km and is famous for its beaches and sand dunes while lakes and forests fringe the shoreline. This is a department in which world-class surfing and a deeply traditional rural culture sit side by side. Landes has several thriving industries including forestry and agriculture. Popular seaside spots include Biscarrosse, Capbreton and Hossegor. Landes' best assets are its natural ones: professional surfers come to ride the waves while three of the department's golf courses have been noted as among the best in Europe. The flat, forested landscapes are great for family cycling trips while the abundance of lakes and coastline make fishing a popular pastime. There's plenty to appeal to wildlife lovers here too: birdwatchers should flock to the Arjuzanx nature reserve, which is home to many thousands of migrating cranes for several months of the year.
