Regional information

Oak House is situated half an hour due south of Bordeaux in a rural forested area in close proximity to the famous wine regions of Bordeaux, including Graves and Sauternes. Merignac ( Bordeaux) Airport is approximately an hour away.

Oak House is 1 km away from the small village of Louchats, which has a local bar / restaurant, bread shop for croissants, church and weekend market. The forests are all close by and there are lakes, cycle tracks and tennis courts. There are a number of large supermarkets and villages within 15 minutes of the property.

The village of Hostens (a 10 minute drive from the house) is home to a large lake, featuring its own beaches, where one can swim or rent a pedalo. For those not inclined towards the water, there are picnic areas and bikes for hire. The nearest beaches are 40mins away, at Arcachon and Biscarosse, with water parks on the way. The medieval town of Bazas is 30 minutes away.

Bordeaux (capital of the department Gironde in the region Aquitaine) itself is around 45 mins by car and is, naturally, renowned for its world class wines and chateaux. Wine tours are widely available and there are many chateaux and historic buildings to visit. Bordeaux has one million inhabitants in its metropolitan area. After years of neglect, the former wet docks are the country's new hot spot, with a number of cafés, gardens, and museums springing up all the time. The University City is more than just about wine and there are many open air concerts, shopping areas, museums and the tram system to get you around the city.
