There are toiletries in the bathrooms and a gourmet food basket in the kitchen.

Why Kids Love it

The villa is between the bay and the ocean, just 10 minutes’ walk through a calm and fragrant pine forest to the ocean beaches. You don’t need a car once you have arrived - you can walk and cycle everywhere. Baby equipment can be rented, including a crib and high chair. The children’s bedroom has bunk beds. There is space to play in the living area and outside in the decked garden.

About the Location

The villa is on a small quiet road between l’Herbe and the Port de la Vigne, in the middle of the Cap peninsula, halfway between the bay and the ocean. Cap Ferret is a uniquely charming vacation spot for families and a renowned beach resort with Arcachon Bay to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. You can enjoy the landscape of the Arcachon Bay on one side and the waves and immense size of the Silver Coast on the other. At the headland, where Arcachon Bay and the Atlantic meet, you can see the Banc d'Arguin nature reserve and the Dune of Pilat. The pretty village of l’Herbe is nearby, and has shops and conveniences; further south is the glamourous Port de la Vigne. Bordeaux Airport is just under an hour away.

Accommodation Details

This 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom house is set over 2 levels. The lower level has 4 bedrooms, 3 with double beds and one with bunk beds, plus a bathroom with a bath. The upper level includes a wood-panelled living room, dining table, well equipped eat-in kitchen and a master suite with a bathroom. It also includes the terrace, a large living space with lounge, dining room and oyster bar, plus fabric shades and a barbecue/grill.

Style Notes

Beach chic. The villa is centered around the magnificent terrace, which includes sail-shaded dining and lounge areas. Inside, there is a warm and welcoming main living space with wood panelled walls and a sleek modern kitchen, with pops of red throughout. Bedrooms are pared back and relaxed, and the focus is all on the outdoor space. We love the oyster bar with marine decorations, the calm children’s bedroom and the location beside the pine forest, a short walk from ocean beaches.

Cap Ferret, Gironde

Wine, oysters and sandy beaches

This glamorous finger of land, an hour west of Bordeaux, is beloved of the jet set seeking a quiet place for the summer, and is known for its oysters and beaches. With the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the lagoon of Arcachon Bay, famed for its oysters, to the east, there are quiet sandy beaches for smaller kids and big ocean waves and surf for older children. There are no museums and few must-see attractions, just sun, sand, sea, surfing, swimming, sailing, cycling and sports to keep you occupied. As the sun sets, be sure to try the local oysters with a glass of white wine.
