Three bedroom villa with private heated pool plus access to large shared pool on a holiday park with a difference. Situated within the verdant grounds of Chateau de Salles, there is a real feeling of spaciousness about the place. The 100 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, tennis, 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.

Situated within the verdant grounds of Chateau de Salles, there is a real feeling of spaciousness about the place. The 100 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, tennis, 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. Outside the main summer season, Chateau de Salles provides a great base for exploring the region. After a day out sightseeing you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings, unwind and maybe even take a dip in the heated pool. This low density parkland development has been designed in sympathy with the local traditional style. The interiors are particularly spacious – much more so than similar capacity holiday homes. 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 lovely, 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 situated at the heart of Aquitaine, surrounded by massive pine forests, close to vast freshwater lakes and within easy reach of the wide sandy beaches along the coast. The attractive seaside resort of Arcachon with its grand, ‘Belle Epoque’ villas and safe, sandy beaches is within 40 minutes’ drive. The nearby village of Salles is a short walk away down the main chateau driveway. 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.

We loved our stay. We thought the layout of the complex was very clever and offered residents a lot of privacy. It was beautiful, quiet and peaceful. A really lovely tranquil place to go to get away from it all. And yet shops, restaurants and...More

About the neighbourhood
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. 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.
