What makes Villa Bois Flotté a great holiday rental
Villa Bois Flotté is located on the dunes, just 100m from the beach, has stunning views of the ocean and is very well equipped as well as offering an à la carte concierge service.
Several families or large group all looking for the independence of individual bathrooms and that hint of hotel luxury, with TVs, bluetooth speakers, airconditioning and coffee machines in every room. The house has been well designed to cater to large groups.
Toddlers - the pool, whilst raised out of the ground, is not protected and being on the dunes, the garden is largely sand, when not decked.
Teenagers - teenagers will love this house! They can walk to the beach, restaurants and cycle into Hossegor. The indoor/outdoor music system will keep them happy, as will the spa and gym.
Reduced mobility - There are several bedrooms on the ground floor, but the driveway up the house is steep.
Anything to look out for
Some bathrooms are slightly dated whilst others are brand new but the location and view more than make up for this. Being on the dunes there is a lot of sand!
Idyllic location for this wooden villa on top of the dunes overlooking Estagnots beach
This wood clad villa has been designed to provide for everything you could wish for in a holiday home. Views from the outdoor dining area and pool, and several parts of the house, of the ocean and a covered terrace, closed on 3 sides, with outdoor heaters for those slightly cooler evenings at the beach.

The house is located on the dunes in the Les Estagnots district at the border of Hossegor and Seignosse. The villa is set back from the road, 50m from a path leading down to the beach.
The ocean is 150m away; the lagoon just 500m the other way. It's an easy cycle ride into Hossegor (3 kms) or Seignosse-Le Penon (2 kms).
Estagnots now boast several restaurants, a bike hire shop and a mini-market, all of which are only a short walk away from the house.

Popular with surfers and families, the beaches are superb. There are seasonal shops, a bit of nightlife and a Water Park in Seignosse Le Penon.
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.
