What makes Hossegor Beach House a great holiday rental

  • Informal, laid-back 'vibe'
  • For surfers, it's a short walk to some classic beach breaks
  • Eclectic furnishings and design touches
  • Very private and peaceful location near bustling Hossegor

Situated at the quieter, northern end of Hossegor, the 'surfer chic' Beach House blends perfectly with its sand & forest natural surroundings. It's an eclectic rather than a luxurious property and offers a spacious and relaxing retreat by the surfing beaches. The owner is a keen a surfer and still works in the industry; you'll see surfing influences throughout the house.

For a special occasion or just to make your holiday even more relaxing, why not book one of our bespoke catering packages as part of your stay at this villa.
 

Best for:
The Beach House is particularly suited to families with older kids who want informality and easy access to the surf - and a 'cool' town to explore. It's not for guests who want minimalist/modern luxury. 

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - reasonable garden space but some steps and care needed on terraces. The grounds are enclosed and the lagoon is ideal for little ones
  • Teenagers - perfect!
  • Reduced mobility - not suitable 

Anything to watch out for?

  • The Beach House has some cool designer touches but it's not a polished/luxury property (if that's what you want we can give you plenty of suggestions!)
  • In some places the terrace/lawn has no boundary and there is a small drop - some care needed with little ones.

Why Hossegor?
The nearest resort is an established surfing 'mecca' with a very 'cool' vibe. Hossegor offers great beaches, good shopping, a lovely lagoon and plenty of activities (surf, golf, tennis, cycling, sailing & more).

Accommodation

Surfers' beach house a short walk to legendary Plage Estagnots

The Beach House is owned by an Anglo-Australian family who live in London. They have worked in the surfing industry for many years and have been visiting Hossegor for business and pleasure for many years too. They are one of the band of Hossegor pioneers and well-known in the community!

Previously, they owned a lovely farmhouse just inland from the coast which we rented for holiday lets on their behalf. That was sold on, and they've made a new base on the beach. We're very glad about that.

The Beach House is certainly unique - the owners have an eye for design and there are retro-designer touches throughout. With a tasteful surf theme also evident, this is a very 'un-French' holiday rental. We believe this is a major benefit! Throughout the property, you'll find examples of contemporary artwork, photographic prints and surfing artefacts, all adding to that beach house feel. The garden-level accommodation is particularly fresh and creative.

Here's just a sample of the eclectic design 'touches' that make the Beach House so special:

  • Furniture from Switzerland, Germany & Sweden
  • Travertine flooring in the kitchen
  • Teak outdoor furniture incuding an Extremis table
  • Bathrooms all en-suite with rain showers and Travertine tiles
  • Sonos sound system
  • 2 large flat screens, PlayStation, Sky and UK TV
  • Leather sofas
  • Canadian cedar wood hot tub

Plus these entertainment features:

  • Wifi throughout the house
  • 2 Sonos speaker systems with iPOd connectivity
  • Playstation 3 with DVD capability
  • 2 large flat screen TVs, with Sky / UK TV

Inside:

The accommodation is arranged over two levels: the main living room, kitchen and one of the bedrooms are at ground level. An internal staircase leads down to the lower ground level accommodation where there is another spacious living room plus three more bedrooms. From the outside, the house does not look especially large but once inside it's deceptively cavernous.

Ground Level

  • Entrance hallway with several intriguing black & white photos of 1960's surf scenes
  • Separate WC decorated with surfing pictures
  • Bedroom 1: Master bedroom with posture-pedic king size bed and a spacious, high quality en-suite bathroom (bath, separate shower, WC)
  • Kitchen with plancha (hot plate BBQ), hob, dishwasher, two fridge freezers, plus a large dining table to accommodate all guests. Access to the front terrace. NB The kitchen table has changed since the photo in the gallery was taken and it's now a hand-carved oak table.
  • Living room - 'L-shaped' room incorporating plenty of sofas, separate TV area. The living room offers terrace access and is west-facing.
  • Laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer, iron & ironing board

Lower Ground Level
From the ground floor hallway there is a staircase leading to the lower level.

  • Bedroom 2: 150cm Tempur-Pedic double bed and en-suite shower room
  • Bedroom 3: twin beds or join to make a 180cm double. En-suite shower room.
  • Bedroom 4: twin beds or join to make a 180cm double. En-suite shower room.
  • Superb, spacious lounge with plasma screen TV, CD stereo, leather sofa, modern art canvasses and a couple of surfboards too (not for use).

Outside:

  • At the front of the house, a large decked terrace has been created. This west-facing terrace is accessed directly from the summer kitchen. Please take care as there is an unprotected drop at various places from the terrace into the garden - please check the photo gallery to take a look.
  • Around the back of the house is an external wooden staircase leading to the main door.
  • The gardens have a good lawn, and are bordered by a fence and shrubs,
  • There is parking for a couple of cars in the driveway and the main entrance to the property has stout wooden gates.

Location

Quiet residential street in the pine forests close to the beach, situated in Les Estagnots district which lies at the border of Hossegor and Seignosse. It's less than 5 mins walk to the ocean across the road to Les Estagnots beach, a famous surf break in the area. 10 mins on foot and you will reach the lagoon Lac d'Hossegor. There's sandy coves here, picnic spots and watersports. This is an excellent, safe bathing area, ideal for younger kids when the ocean surf is looking formidable. It's a short drive or cycle ride of 3kms to Hossegor town centre shops where you'll find some very tasteful shops, good cafés, lots of restaurants and a good sprinkling of surf boutiques too. There's also a small cluster of shops at Seignosse which you can walk to.

The Local Area

Seignosse Plages
4kms to the west are the continuous beaches les Estagnots, Bourdaines and le Penon. It's a mostly residential area with a number of holiday homes and apartments. The architecture is not especially attractive but it's the lovely sandy coastline that draws visitors. Popular with surfers and families, the beaches are superb. There are seasonal shops, a bit of nightlife and a Water Park.

Golf de Seignosse
A water and forest monster of a course ranked in Continental Europe’s Top 50! Very welcoming clubhouse with a restaurant and bar (serving meals midday-5pm each day) with fabulous views of the course from the terrace. The course hotel serves excellent, more formal à la carte meals in the evening.

Hossegor & Capbreton
The local region of Sud Landes is typical Aquitaine - endless stretches of sandy beaches buffeted by the Atlantic ocean, vast pine forests punctuated by the occasional lake and criss-crossed by a network of cycle trails.

Capbreton and Hossegor are neighbouring seaside towns which between them offer an appealing contrast. Hossegor is the more famous, largely through its surfing heritage. It's a 'feelgood' place offering boutique shopping, great bars and restaurants, world-famous surfing beaches, casino, and a lovely golf course and a beautiful lake for safe bathing and sailing.

Capbreton lives in the shadow of Hossegor but it's the place the locals prefer for eating out and for beaches. It's definitely the more authentic of the two, largely because of its fishing port and daily fish market. In fact, the town thrived in the 19th century as a whaling port and this sea-faring heritage is still very much apparent today.

It also has a charming town centre and market. Capbreton is just more French than Hossegor, if you see what we mean. It remains, admirably, something of a French (and Spanish) secret.

Capbreton sea-front is a bustling place, day and evening. You can walk all the way along the marina and sea-front. The jetty, known locally as l'estacade, offers excellent coastal views. There's normally a few locals here trying to catch a fish for supper. It makes for great viewing!

Like most of the south west coast, Capbreton-Hossegor is something of an outdoor playground. Take your pick from surfing, canoeing, sailing, diving, fishing, cycling, tennis, horse-riding and golf to name a few. Golfers will enjoy the local course, the 1930s-built Golf d’Hossegor. The traditional club house is also a delight. A short drive up the road is the infamous Golf de Seignosse. There are other great courses within 45 minutes drive including Moliets and several around Biarritz.

The whole Aquitaine coast is a perfect venue for surfers but at Capbreton the presence of an offshore hollow in the sea-bed gives the waves here that extra edge. If you don't fancy a go yourself, just sit on the sea-front with a drink of your choice and watch the surfers ride to shore.

Cyclists can enjoy the many safe forest tracks that connect between the towns along the coast. Sailing enthusiasts should head for the Capbreton Marina. Being so close to the Pays Basque border, sporting life also includes the legendary game of pelote; you can watch a game at the fronton in Hossegor.

Service: Always professional service from the office staff to Maarten and his wife SImone on the meet and greet.

Product: Property was fantastic. Only issue I would say was when we arrived there was a bad smell in the downstairs area which lasted a couple of days. Once the property had been aired and used it was fresher!

On 14-Jun-2016 we responded:

Service Comment: Thank you for your feedback - we're delighted to hear that your latest visit was a great success! Regarding the downstairs level, the owners have finally got to the bottom of it - they are on-site now installing an air-circulation system and replacing the smaller windows to improve ventilation.

Product: Nice house but smell of humidity is very strong in the lower part of the house.We didn't use the bedroom after the laundry , too stinky.... The rental is a little bit off market ,considering other houses we visited in Hossegor.

Service Comment: good service

thanks for writing. You're obviously a regular visitor to Hossegor too! It's our most popular destination on the SW coast these days. We spoke to the housekeeper about the garden level accommodation - it just needed airing. We'll keep an eye on it. Justin
