It’s an enchanting place, a parenthesis on earth. On one side you have the authentic charm of the bay, on the other the wildness of the ocean, and between the two, the awesome peace and quiet of the pine forest and the dunes ? This marvel in solid wood, with its elegant veranda that makes it look like a house straight out of Louisiana, is tucked away in the middle of the pine forest, 10 minutes south of the Cape’s lighthouse. The property, which consists of a two-story main house and a second single-story house with five ensuite bedrooms, is surrounded by a magnificent 2,000 sq. m landscaped park. The rustic quality of the wood blends in beautifully with the high-end contemporary interior design, resulting in a warm and friendly luxury perfectly in tune with the spirit of the Cap Ferret.
The 11x4 swimming pool, set on a beach of teak, offer a nice surprise: its base is mounted on a hydraulic jack that makes it possible to adjust the depth (up to 1m80), transforming it into a wading pool for children or a full-fledged swimming pool. The pool house has a summer kitchen with a barbecue plancha grill, a shower and toilets.

• Large living area with a living room, dining room and open-plan kitchen equipped with the latest in high-tech appliances

There’s a parking lot for two cars on the property.
Household linen, kitchen and bath towels are provided. The beds will be made up just before your arrival. You’ll also have some surprises in store to welcome you: you’ll find toiletries in the bathrooms and a little gourmet gift basket in the kitchen. Extra services are also available on demand upon reservation.
The property is located less than 10 minutes by bike from the Cape lighthouse, halfway between the bay and the ocean, in the southern part of the peninsula.
Cross the dunes and you’ll find yourself face-to-face with the immense beaches of the Atlantic. On the other side, it’s the bay with a view of the famous “Dune du Pilat”. There’s the charm and authenticity of Fishermen’s village and the Mimbeau, a long sandbar that closes off the bay, ideal for a swim or a quiet walk.
For those who love oysters, mussels and other seafood products, you’ll find numerous tasting bars at the local oyster-growers. We recommend the excellent “Cabane d’Hortense”, right near the property.
