What Makes Villa Netta A Great Holiday Villa

Villa Netta is a rare find - a spacious, private and very comfortable villa with pool in the heart of south-central Cap Ferret. It is an easy walk to beaches 500m east or west, and 5 minutes by bike to the village centre, boutiques, market & restaurants. A fabulous place to unwind and immerse yourself in a magical corner of south west France.

Best for:

The convivial layout is ideal for 2 or 3 families sharing, or a multi-generation family to come together. 

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers: supervsision needed around stairs & pool; cot provided; toddler-friendly beaches nearby
  • Teenagers: if they enjoy watersports, cycling, and having the freedom to explore independently they will love it!
  • Reduced mobility: access to ground floor bedrooms, bathroom & living area is reasonably level.

Anything to watch out for:

Two of the bedrooms are quite small and simply furnished, but still tastefully done. Downstairs living room simply furnished - more of a teenagers room.

The Local Area

The Cap Ferret peninsula is a treat for the senses - the scent of the pine forest, the constant rumble of rollers washing up on the western coast, the salty, slippery taste of oysters washed down with a Bordeaux blanc and, at the end of the day, sitting on top of one of the dunes overlooking the Atlantic and watching the sun go down. Bliss!

All these experiences and more are within very easy reach. The Atlantic beach l'Horizon, popular with surfers, is about a 800m away to the west, the bassin d'Arcachon beach of la Mimbeau is just 200m away.

It's only 500m to Cap Ferret's smart boutiques, cafes and restaurants in a low-rise, laid-back setting.

From the village you can take a ferry over to Arcachon or Le Moulleau, but you'll probably miss your 'desert island' home quite quickly! Or try a boat tour spotting the oyster beds and bird life of the bassin d'Arcachon.

There's also a charming 'petit train' that runs from the jetty on the bassin side over the Atlantic beach on the other side of the pensinsula; the trip takes 10-15 minutes and, especially if you have children, is a delight.

Heading on down to the Pointe is a must, the panormic views across the bassin to the sandy wild-life reserve of the Banc d'Arguin and over to the Dune de Pyla (Europe's highest sand dune) are breathtaking. Climbing to the top of the famous Cap Ferret lighthouse gives an even better view. The famous '44 Hectares' of the Cap Ferret peninsula are situated south of the lighthouse.

Just south of the villa is an area of villas built in the earlier part of the century set amongst the pine trees all served by unmade roads, owned by several French stars, Bordeaux vineyard owners and generations of Cap Ferret inhabitants of more modest means. It's probably the most natural, exclusive yet unpretentious housing estate in France and also home to the island's most famous restaurant, Chez Hortense - laid back (what else could it be here?) and popular with France's VIPs.

If you feel the urge to leave the Cap - and many don't while they are here - the famous appelations of Pauillac and Margaux north in the médoc rouge are not far away.

Around the other side of the basin is Arcachon, a popular French resort; a part of the town known as the Ville d'Hiver (winter town) is well worth strolling to see the quirky architecture of its many 19th century villas, as is the newly-pedestrianised town centre. South of Arcachon is the famous Dune du Pyla, the largest sand dune in Europe, standing at over 100 metres. A journey to the summit (try it without the staircase provided!) is a must; sunrise and sunset are the best times.

If you're feeling beached out, Bordeaux is about an hour away and is a good option for a day-trip, whether it’s boutique shopping, sight-seeing or culture. Medieval gems of the Gironde east of Bordeaux are also wonderful days out; St Emilion, with its 11th century basilica, is the best known but can be busy - get there early.
