France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Lège-Cap-Ferret
House Near Bordeaux And Near The Sea
Typical house for the Bassin d'Arcachon-region, all wood and glass, very bright and spacious.
Fully equipped kitchen, large living room, five bedrooms, three bathrooms; sleeps ten.
A large garden next to a forest, with barbecue and plancha grill for outside meals.
In the evening the sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep.
The area is extremely quiet, in the heart of the Cap Ferret peninsula.
The ocean beaches are just five minutes' drive away, and are excellent for surfing.
The Bassin d'Arcachon is also just five minutes' drive away. It is great for boat trips and kayaking, and its beaches are lovely and safe for children to go swimming.
We have two bicycles which you are welcome to use, and our large garage has plenty of room for your surfboards.
The Arcachon basin is one of the most popular destinations in France.
The Cap Ferret peninsula with its fishing villages with colourful huts has kept its genuine character, and the local oyster farmers offer tastings of freshly caught oysters accompanied by white wine from Bordeaux.
Numerous cycling paths run along the pine forests and criss-cross the region.
There is a horse riding centre five minutes' walk from the house, offering horse riding in the forests and on the beach.
There are also several surf schools close to our home.
You have the choice between the immense wild beaches of the Atlantic Ocean or the calm beaches of the Arcachon basin where you can rent motor boats or sail boats. Strolling along the Arcachon basin is an experience to live, see the Tchanque cabins (which originally sheltered the watchmen in charge of the surveillance of the oyster beds), and admire the highest dune in Europe: the dune of Pilat!
Bordeaux is an hour's drive away and is definitely worth a visit, not only for its world-renowned wines, but also because it is a World Heritage Site. Its impressive house façades, its bridges, its medieval quarters and its quays along the Garonne are a definite must-see!
We are crazy about music, and jazz in particular, and we love New York and would like to swap our house for an apartment in Manhattan or the US East Coast.
A non-simultaneous exchange would be possible, since we also have another house near Bordeaux.
Philippe is a musician and teaches music, and Ivana is a booking agent for musicians.
We love travelling, and we would be happy to make our house available for people who would like to visit our splendid region.
We treat other people's houses with great respect, and we will be discreet guests, taking great care not to cause any disturbance to your home. We expect the same from you of course, but that goes without saying.
