About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Averil Provan

We left the big city to find the peace and quiet that this tranquil part of the world provides. A dog and 2 cats later, we are loving our new life and would love to introduce you to it too.

Year property purchased 2010
Why this location? The friendly village of Sos has all the amenities you need, including 2 restaurants, a pharmacy and a local shop, with fresh bread and cakes every morning. And during the summer months the square outside your window is host to a bustling night market every Wednesday featuring local food and drink producers plus live music. There is also a children’s play area and tennis courts.

There is fantastic walking and cycling on your doorstep in the forest of Les Landes and the rolling hills around Sos. Historic villages such as Fources and Larresingle, and award winning local markets, make sure there is always something to do. Or why not just sit out, soaking up the sun, with a glass of wine from one of the local vineyards? We’re happy to help with wine tastings and restaurant recommendations.

For the more active, there are waterparks, swimming pools and golf courses within 20 minutes drive, as well as bike and canoe hire.
Unique benefits of property Gite Sicard is a pretty 2 storey house with private courtyard on a quiet street overlooking the pretty historic square of Sos. The spacious 3 bedroom house provides self-catering accommodation for up to 6 people, and includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, comfortable sitting room and 2 luxurious bathrooms.

The house is perfect for long or short stays all year round. Sun loungers, outdoor table and chairs and a barbeque make the most of the south facing courtyard garden. Two woodburners ensure the house is cosy in winter.

Located in a beautiful area of France, this was our dream holiday home for 5 years and we loved visiting as often as we could. We got to know the area and loved it so much, we sold up in the city to move here permanently. We now live a 10 minutes drive away from the village – close enough that we can help you enjoy your stay here.

The Owner Recommends

Le Sotiate

Our very local restaurant - 2 minutes walk from the gite. Good food - a 13 euro lunch menu is excellent value - and they do pizzas and burgers to takeaway. Friendly owners who speak enough English to make sure you get what you order!
