What makes Villa Aquamarine A Great Holiday Rental
Villa Aquamarine is a great option for families, with lots of space and well-located close to the beach & lots to do. Outside July & August, the location on Seignosse golf course (the best in Aquitaine) and close to famous Hossegor surf spots (the best beach-breaks in Europe) make it ideal for surf & golf holidays.
Anything To Watch Out For?
The two twin bedrooms are in attic rooms with sloping ceilings - please check the photos. The two downstairs double bedrooms share one bathroom. (At the time the photos were taken the garden had not been landscaped - it is now fully grassed, new photos coming soon.)
This stretch of the Aquitaine coast is known as Europe's California, for good reason: laid-back & stylish and known for a fabulous quality of life. There's great surf, cycle trails, and golf if you want it. Fantastic selection of beach bars, restaurants, boutiques. Super-cool, and friendly too. We love it here!

Villa Aquamarine is located in a lovely pine-forested residential area around Seignosse golf course, about a mile from the beach & ocean at Les Bourdaines, where there is also a fantastic bar-restaurant (Heads Beach Brewing Company).
The golf course brasserie is another good local option - nice menu and very relaxed. Local shops are a walk or short bike ride away, as are the markets & restaurants of Seignosse-Ocean centre and Hossegor.
It's an ideal spot to be away from the bustle of the main beaches, and still be in easy reach.

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 Ã 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, a lovely golf course and a beautiful lagoon 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.View More Hossegor Rentals
