L'Estanquet has the main house with bespoke bedrooms and a newly converted barn. Situated between the pine forest of Les Landes and the Atlantic Ocean it is perfect place for you to stop and immediately rest & relax. Biscarrosse lake is a stones throw away & sandy beaches lead into the freshwater lake. 

Alex, Claire & their family are inviting you into their home. This beautiful place has a comfortable but rustic feel to it. The main house has 1 double room and 2 suites. L'Estanquet is just a two minute walk from the sandy beaches of the shallow, freshwater lake - ideal for children, water sports, relaxing and keeping cool. The area is surrounded by pine tree forests and perfect for exploring with the never-ending cycle paths or seeking out a hidden beach for a picnic. You can even cycle to the sea at Mimizan or Biscarrosse

'The Materials Room' sleeps 2 people with a shower room and separate WC. The rooms theme has its inspiration drawn from woods, paper and natural elements of nature.

'The Serenity Suite' is designed for 4 people. A king sized double bed and 2 single beds in independent connecting rooms. They share a shower room with a separate WC. The nearby sea was the calming inspiration for this suite.

'The Garden Suite' again is for 4 people. Like the last suite it contains a king sized bed and 2 single beds in independent connecting rooms. They also share a shower room with a separate WC. Garden views and soft colours set the relaxed tranquil style of this suite.

The Gite is a 100 year old barn that has been recently converted. It sleeps up to 8 people in 4 double bedrooms. There is a beautiful well equipped open plan kitchen, and all mod cons throughout the gite including high speed WiFi, Bosch sound system, TV, Wii, DVD, iPod dock. Which can all be enjoyed around a wood burner to keep you warm on those chilly nights. A newly decked out terrace is also a lovely spot to enjoy a bbq or to relax on a warm summers evening.


Visitor comments

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful four nights stay. We can only confirm what other guests have said. The rooms are beautifully put together and the beds are extremely comfortable. We slept very well and woke each day to a lovely breakfast. Claire and Alex were spot on with everything and were friendly, caring and helpful in everyway. Nothing was too much trouble. They are a lovely family and made us very welcome in their home."  - Trip Advisor
  • "We stayed at this Chambre d'Hote for 3 nights with our 3 children and my parents. Claire and Alex really couldn't have done more to make us feel at home, they are so hospitable and friendly. Our 4 year old suffers with a severe egg allergy and Claire baked a special egg free cake for him, as well as flapjacks for the children to eat on our journey home - so thoughtful and much appreciated. Everyone was happy: our 7 year old loved Louis the dog, our 4 year old loved Leo and Leo loved the fact my dad is a farmer and showed him his toy tractors! Alex and Claire recommended a great place to eat and gave us suggestions for days out, local markets etc. The family suite is so comfortable and well appointed. The location, with the lovely lake just a stone's throw away, couldn't be better. I would give L'Estanquet 10 out of 10, thanks for everything Alex and Claire!"  - Trip Advisor
  • "We were away from home for approximately one month. We spent time in numerous European countries and cities - big and small. Of all of them - we stayed with L'Estanquet in Gastes (Alex and Claire) for only three nights. For some reason, the stay with them us with the warmest most vibrant impression of our entire trip. My daughters still talk about it. I say 'for some reason' but I know the reason, it is clear. It is the amazingly warm and welcoming hospitality they provide. This is something which comes naturally to them and it permeates throughout the stay - from the room, to the breakfast, through the house and all around, gives one a constant 'hug' and settling feeling."  - Trip Advisor
