The Aquitaine region

Just at the north end of Hossegor lake is Estagnots, a famous surfing beach and quiet residential area. The villa is situated on the road between Hossegor and Seignosse but the house is set back from the road (and is full enclosed with an automatic gate). The beach is not much more than a stone's throw away, accessed via the Estagnots beach car park.

Les Estagnots beach is a world-famous beach break that draws some excellent surf. The beach continues south for 3km to the marina and continues north all the way to Arcachon, unbroken save for a few river mouths!

10 mins walk to the lagoon Lac d'Hossegor. There's sandy coves here, picnic spots and watersports. This is an excellent, safe bathing area, ideal for younger kids when the ocean surf is looking formidable. 3 kms to Hossegor town centre shops where you'll find some very tasteful shops, good cafes, lots of restaurants and a good sprinkling of surf boutiques too.

Seignosse Ocean

The resort incorporating the fabulous beaches les Estagnots, Bourdaines and le Penon. It's a mostly residential area with a number of holiday homes and apartments. Popular with surfers and families, the beaches are superb. There are seasonal shops, a bit of nightlife and a Water Park.

Golf de Seignosse

A water and forest monster of a course ranked in Continental Europe's Top 50! Very welcoming clubhouse with a restaurant and bar with fabulous views of the course from the terrace.

Hossegor & Capbreton

The local region of Sud Landes is typical Aquitaine - endless stretches of sandy eaches buffeted by the Atlantic ocean, vast pine forests punctuated by the occasional lake and criss-crossed by a network of cycle trails.

Capbreton and Hossegor are neighbouring seaside towns which between them offer an appealing contrast. Hossegor is the more famous, largely through its surfing pedigree. It's a 'feelgood' place offering boutique shopping, great bars and restaurants, world-amous surfing beaches, casino, a lovely golf course and a beautiful lagoon for safe bathing and sailing.

Capbreton lives in the shadow of Hossegor but it's the place the locals prefer for eating out and quieter beaches. It's definitely the more authentic of the two, largely because of its fishing port and daily fish market. In fact, the town thrived in the 19th century as a whaling port and this sea-faring heritage is still very much apparent today. It also boasts a modern marina, a charming town centre and market and remains, admirably, something of a French (and Spanish) secret.
