Why Cap Ferret?
Cap Ferret is one of France's most chic holiday destinations and renowned for its seafood (especially oysters), fabulous beaches, sailing, surfing, lovely cycle trails, markets, some fantastic (and famous) restaurants. The ambience is relaxed and casual, in a low-rise, island-style setting - where good living matters most. It is an Aquitaine gem.
Stylish & authentic beach cabin, tastefully renovated with all mod cons
La Régate is a remarkable holiday home - a genuine fisherman's cabin, 90m2 altogether, entirely renovated to a very good standard, in the most magical of Aquitaine locations on the Arcachon Bay shore. Imagine watching an early sunrise, enjoying a pre-breakfast jog or swim, gazing at the yachts gliding in front, and days passing to the rhythm of the tides.
The décor and furnishings are very much in the Cap Ferret's tasteful beach-house style, simple & unshowy, balanced with smart bathrooms, modern kitchen plus wifi.
It comprises a main house, plus garden annex (bedroom & bathroom).
Access is via the beach (parking in the oyster village 50m away), on to the bay-facing terrace and veranda, with barbecue, dining table & chairs for 4-6, bench and two loungers.
The entrance is to the main living room of the house, which has a front sitting area where there are two sofas for enjoying panoramic views through the bay windows, dining area with table seating 6, next to the original fireplace.
At the rear is a small, well-equipped kitchen, including oven, hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, etc, with door opening in to the back garden.
The two bedrooms and bathroom in main house are located off the living room:
Across the small garden is the 'bungalow' - further cabin-style outbuilding converted, as is common in Cap Ferret, to a third bedroom, with double bed, plus ensuite shower with sink & toilet.
2 double bedrooms, 1 in main house, 1 in garden annex; 1 bedroom with 2 sets of bunks (in main house)
2 shower rooms - 1 in main house, 1 in annex
La Régate is located in Les Jacquets oyster-farming quarter on the eastern shore of the Cap Ferret peninsula, a short walk from a couple of oyster shacks where you can buy direct from the producer. There is a local grocery store 2 minutes' walk away, and a wider choice of shops plus a couple of restaurants in Petit Piquey, a short bike ride, or a 10 minutes walk along the beach at low tide. Le Truc Vert Atlantic beach is 4 kms away - a cycle path takes you most of the way. Cap Ferret village is 12 kms.
