What Makes Villa des Pélicans A Great Holiday Rental
One extended family, two families, or a group of friends looking for a good value rental to accommodate everyone comfortably in a unique & special area of south west France. Anyone who enjoys good food & wine, pine-forest & sand-dunes, and an outdoors way-of-life will love it here.
Anything To Watch Out For?
Traffic noise: the house is set back from the avenue de Bordeaux, but passing traffic is clearly audible outside. Noise is less apparent on the main terrace at the back of the house, facing towards the forest and ocean. The road is moderately busy during the day, quieter in the evenings.
The cabin-style bedrooms downstairs (double and twin) are interconnecting, and share a bathroom.
Why Cap Ferret?
Cap Ferret village is one of France's most chic holiday destinations featuring smart boutiques, cafés and restaurants in a low-rise, island-style setting - the ambience is relaxed and casual, where good living matters most. The bay is renowned for its seafood (especially oysters), fabulous beaches, sailing, surfing, lovely cycle trails, some fantastic (and famous) restaurants. An Aquitaine gem.

Villa des Pélicans is equidistant between the ocean on one side (west) and Arcachon Bay on the other. It's a 15 minute walk over the dunes to the ocean and coastal footpath, and just 5-10 minutes in the other direction to the market, boutiques & restaurants in the centre of Cap Ferret itself, plus the beaches which face the Arcachon Bay. You can pick up the peninsula's lovely cycle trails close by too. (Good hire shop 200m away.)
It is situated on the corner of avenue de Bordeaux and a residential side road. The house is set back from the road in a 1200m2 plot amongst pine trees. Road noise is audible at the front of the house, less so at the back where it faces the forest and is oriented towards the ocean.
