What Makes Appartement Etxean A Great Holiday Rental
But don't just take our word for it - see what our 2019 visitors to Appartement Etxean had to say:
"The apartment was a dream find and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Beautifully presented, fantastic location just minutes from the town centre, lakes and beaches and really peaceful in the evenings. More importantly the owner / host Maggie was fantastic and could not have done more to have made us feel welcome. Local advice was accurate and helpful. 10 out of 10!"
"Very comfortable,clean,bright and modern apartment."
Families with children of all ages who don't want to rely on using the car
Anything to watch out for:
The apartment is part of a larger house, but completely private - separately accessed and not overlooked. The charming (English) owner is available to share local knowledge & help if needed, but will otherwise leave you to enjoy your holiday. There are a couple of stray cats in the neighbourhood who are sometimes in the grounds of the property but will not come inside. Some background road noise is audible, but we did not find it intrusive.
Because it's a fabulous south of France resort with amazing surf beaches, a stunning tidal lagoon, fresh & fragrant pine forests, beautiful cycle trails and more. It's a slice of California in Europe. Hossegor is about good-living...eating well and enjoying the great outdoors. It's our most popular destination but we love the fact it's still relatively unknown - spread the word but not too much!
Brand new, very good quality apartment, well-equipped & furnished & with comfortable outdoor space
Appartement Etxean (pronounced "Etchean") is located on the ground floor of a two storey villa and has its own entrance at the back of the house. The apartment is accessed via the shared driveway where there is parking for one car. The name "Etxean" means "at home" in Basque and this is the perfect description of this comfortable holiday apartment.
Inside, the apartment's layout makes good use of its 60m2. Throughout the owners have used sustainable, natural materials as much as possible. Altogether you quickly feel relaxed and at home.
- Living room with sofa, comfy chair and wifi-enabled TV (guests can access their own Netflix account)
- High-spec open-plan Italian kitchen, fully-equipped including dishwasher, fridge-freezer, pod coffee maker and microwave
- Small utility room with a washing machine.
- Double bedroom - Côté Jardin - with bedside tables, hanging space, French doors opening on the rear terrace

French doors from the living room & double bedroom open on to a lovely outside space - a good-sized, attractively-tiled terrace (approx. 20m2) enclosed by a low wall makes a comfortable area for breakfast, sunbathing, reading or aperitifs; behind this a raised area of natural garden behind featuring cork oaks gives an attractive backdrop. (A neighbouring property is visible 20-25m away at the rear but doesn't feel intrusive.)
- There are two lovely outdoor rocking chairs and ottomans for relaxing on.
- Garden shed handy for storing bikes & surf boards
- Built-in BBQ
- Handy outside shower for when you come back from the beach
Double bedroom (160cm bed) plus twin bedroom (2x 90 cm beds that can be joined to make a double)

Appartement Etxean is on the ground floor of a traditional Hossegor villa located on the avenue du Touring Club on the eastern shore of Hossegor lake. The villa is set back from the road, and the apartment is on the far side of the villa (away from the road), which minimises any intrusion from road noise.
It is only a 500m walk into Hossegor centre, where you'll find shops, daily food market, cafés & restaurants - you can easily manage without a car. It's 1 km on to the ocean beaches from there - a short bike ride along the good network of local cycle paths, and hiring bikes is easy.
