A verdant setting. A restaurant serving the best regional flavours. A friendly, family establishment. Welcome to Lisa and Frédéric Rodriguez’s hotel.
“Achieving ever-greater customer satisfaction.”
In 2011, Lisa, Frédéric and their three children decided to settle on the edges of Lake Parentis-en-Born. They left behind the Paris region and their respective jobs as station manager and mass distribution executive. “We wanted a better place to live and to be our own bosses.” And here they are, hoteliers and restaurateurs at a 16-room establishment in Landes. They began work on the dining room, communal areas and guest rooms, which were renovated and decorated according to various themes. The jobs came one after the other but their commitment and enthusiasm didn’t waver. They picked up three stars along the way. “We love our trade, which is incredibly varied, and guest relations. We most enjoy seeing the familiar faces of people we’ve met over the years.”
What do all rooms have in common at the Lakeside hotel? Comfort and space. Lisa and Frédéric had a wonderful time with the decor, dreaming up 16 different ambiances in both the sleeping areas and bathrooms: the ocean, vineyards, Alice in Wonderland, serenity, Paris, London, an around-the-world trip and more. Some rooms come with a terrace. Alone or with family (up to four people), all will enjoy the peaceful location in this rural spot.
A generous buffet breakfast (sweet and savoury). Traditional dining with delicious south-western flavours. A friendly bar. The Lakeside hotel offers simple and effective dining options. Breakfast and dinner is served in a lovely, warm and spacious room with space for 40. Head to the terrace for a snack or refreshments during the day and some welcome shade beneath its large parasols.
The Lakeside hotel restaurant menu lists all the south-west’s culinary delights, from fillets and confits to mussels and chips (an oceanside staple). Our dishes are home-made with fresh, south-western products, namely Tariquet foie gras.
Please note: open lunchtime during the season and in the evening all year round.
Whether you’re passing through Landes or there for a few days’ holiday, enjoy a relaxing break at the Lakeside hotel where a simple and comfortable establishment meets nearby activities and the beauty of one of France’s top tourist regions.
Strictly speaking, the Lakeside hotel offers no activities but its proximity to Lake Biscarrosse-Parentis-en-Born means guests can enjoy swimming, boat trips, waterbiking, a sailing club, parasailing, a water park and much more.
Landes boasts countless places to see and visit and things to try: the unmissable Dune of Pilat, more than 100 km of fine sand beaches, Europe’s biggest pine forest, the famous Arcachon Bay, the Marquèze ecomuseum, Capbreton port, surfing spots, festivals and ferias, and more.
Third time round and improvements are there to be seen. Food has been elevated to standards approaching fine dining and my usual room now has a large private balcony with sun chairs. There were no backward steps, which is remarkable given this miserable pandemic.
Séjour court pour nous mais tout était bien , de l'emplacement à l'accueil jusqu'à la chambre. Je recommande pour les personnes cherchant un endroit très tranquille.
An hour from Bordeaux, the Lakeside hotel is easy to access in a relaxing setting, just a stone’s throw from Lake Biscarrosse-Parentis. With space for up to 90 people, the seminar room can cater to all professional requests (meetings, general assemblies, product presentations, etc.). It offers natural light, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and the necessary facilities. The sales team can also provide a meal service during breaks.
