What makes Villa Mandurah a great holiday rental

The demand for villas in Hossegor is far greater than the supply so we are delighted to offer Villa Mandurah. This newly renovated landaise beach villa is in a residential district of Capbreton, right on the dunes behind La Piste beach and its great attraction is the short walk to both beaches and amenities.  Local shops and restaurants - seafood is a speciality in Capbreton - are close to hand. The villa has the added benefit of aircon in the downstairs living area and on the upstairs landing and the front bedroom.  And off road parking for 2 cars (essential on the streets nearest the beach).

Best for:
Villa Mandurah is a great choice for families in the summer and for surfers and golfers throughout the year.

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - enclosed garden, short walk to beach. 
  • Teenagers - they'll love the surf and nearby Hossegor
  • Reduced mobility - ground floor bathroom & bedroom

Anything to watch out for?

  • Lots of cars parked on the streets around the house by those going to the beach (but the villa provides off road parking for 2 cars!)
  • There is an upstairs balcony accessed by the twin bedroom and the master double.
  • Not ideal for very young children as no stair gates etc.

Why Capbreton?
It's an authentic working fishing port with a bustling sea-front and marina. There's a lively seafood market, excellent seafood restaurants (the locals eat in Capbreton rather than its more illustrious neighbour, Hossegor) and a good selection of shops. It is a welcome contrast to many of the 'purpose-built' resorts around the French coastline.

Accommodation

Villa Mandurah is a renovated landaise style beach house, right opposite the dunes and entrance to La Piste beach in Capbreton.  The house has been completely modernised, with off-road parking, aircon in some rooms, a sun terrace ideal for watching the sunset over the dunes and a great open plan living space.

The garden is fully enclosed with lockable gate and space for 2 cars.  The garden is laid to grass and provides several areas for eating at different times of the day.

Ground floor:

Off the entrance hall is the downstairs toilet and laundry room with easy wheel chair access.  This leads into the main open plan living space with sitting room (with L-shaped sofa, TV with Netflix, 2 comfy wicker chairs), dining room table with seating for 8 people, and modern bright, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar.  There are patio doors that lead out to the garden from each area making the room very bright.  

There is a double bedroom on the ground floor with a 160cm double bed, plenty of open wardrobe space and an ensuite shower room.

There is a small staircase from the living room that leads up to a further 3 bedrooms.

Upstairs:

Master double bedroom (160) with ensuite bathroom with overhead shower.  This bedroom provides the main access to the upstairs sun deck with ample space to sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the sun go down over the dunes.

Another double (140) and a further twin/double room with window access to the sun deck.  (This window is lockable so safe to be used as a kids bedroom).

Location

The villa is located on a residential road in Capbreton and is set back from the street. The local beach "la Piste", is less than 4 minutes' walk over the dunes. Similarly, local shops and restaurants can be found in 5-10 minutes on foot. This is a perfect place if you don't want to use the car too much.  Capbreton adjoins Hossegor to the south and whilst the two districts each have their own centre, they are really only divided by the marina and harbour. The resorts are found on the southern Landes coast about 40 kms north of Biarritz. Very handily, the airport and motorway and within easy reach.

The Local Area

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.

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 Seignosse, a water and forest monster of a course ranked in Continental Europe’s Top 50. There are other great courses within 45 minutes drive including Moliets and several around Biarritz.

Capbreton regularly holds major surfing competitions; 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.
