What makes Villa Mandurah a great holiday rental
We are delighted to sign-on Villa Mandurah, a newly renovated Landaise beach villa right on the dunes in residential Capbreton.
The villa’s great attraction is the easy, 150m walk to the beach (La Piste) and its close proximity to nearby amenities. Local shops and restaurants – seafood is a speciality in Capbreton – are close at hand. Decked terraces fashioned in exotic Cumaru hardwood wrap around the front, side and rear of the villa, creating indoor-outdoor spaces designed for relaxing, barbecuing and dining in the beach-house vibe, all while listening to the surf.
The villa has the added benefit of aircon in the downstairs living area, on the upstairs landing and first-floor terrace room, and master bedroom.
Villa Mandurah is a great choice for a family in the summer who want very easy access to the beach.
For couples into surf or golf, it's ideal in the shoulder months.
Anything to watch out for?
The villa can sleep 8 but we say it's more comfortable for a family of 5/6 max.
Capbreton is a unique place, where fishing, sailing and surfing cultures come together. There's an authentic working fishing port, bustling sea-front and marina, and gorgeous beaches including famous surf-spots. There's a lively seafood market, excellent seafood restaurants (the locals eat in Capbreton rather than its better-known neighbour, Hossegor) and a good selection of shops. Surf lessons, sailing & fishing trips, cycle tours, even rafting in the Pyrenees, all available close by. Hossegor is a short bike ride away north, Biarritz & the Basque country is just 30 minutes by car.
Villa Mandurah is a renovated landais 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 modern, fresh open-plan living space.
Off the entrance hall is the downstairs WC and laundry room with easy wheel chair access.
The hall leads into the main open-plan living space with sitting room (with L-shaped sofa, TV with Netflix, two comfy wicker chairs), dining room table with seating for 8 people, and modern bright, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. The living space features aircon.
Patio doors that lead out to the garden from each area make the room very bright.

No pets, no smoking
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.
