Basque coast luxury beach villa — this stunning villa is in an enviable position right on the beach with fabulous views across the Bassin d’Arcachon to the Cap Ferret. This is a spacious family home situated in the smart residential area of La Corniche which encompasses La Teste de Buch and Pyla sur Mer. This villa strikes the perfect balance between casual beach house and sophisticated holiday retreat; comfortable, relaxed furnishings, beautiful wooden floors, large glass windows and doors offering stunning sea views from most rooms and opening onto balconies and terraces for an easy outdoor lifestyle.
The long, golden sandy beach is perfect for children. The added bonus of the beach house means lunches are easily prepared and afternoon siestas can be enjoyed without leaving the beach. You could hire a boat and the skipper will show you around the bay; don’t miss the iconic ‘maisons tchanquees’ (stilt houses) or an afternoon on the famous sand banks which make the Corniche so unique. Local restaurants are within walking distance to the property offering fresh fish and seafood. One of the best restaurants in the area is nearby at the hotel La Corniche.
The bay is home to a variety of wildlife and bird-watching is popular here. However sailing is one of the main pastimes and this tidal bay is suitable for all abilities. Canoeing is also an exceptional way to enjoy this natural environment and there are many kilometres of cycle paths. You are on the Atlantic coast, so of course surfing is very popular and there are summer schools for beginners and ‘big breakers’ for the professionals. If you’re feeling completely ‘beached out’ and need a day on dry land, then there are two great golf courses nearby, or you could venture into the region’s fine vineyards, take a day trip into the beautiful city of Bordeaux, or visit the fortified town of St Emilion.
