What makes Villa des Chais a great holiday rental

  • Walking distance to the beach and regular market, shops and restaurants at Le Penon
  • Private pool in large, completely private garden
  • Surf boards, wetsuits, surf guide/instructor available for hire
  • Watch owner Kevin Olsen shape boards in his workshop - Plonka Surfboard shaping
  • Flexibility - beds can be doubles or split into singles 

Best for:

Groups of friends or 2 - 3 families with older children sharing.  Teenagers wanting to walk to the beach and restaurants, giving them some independence and parents who want a break from providing a taxi service! 

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - beware the pool is not covered but is protected by an alarm
  • Teenagers - ideal for easy access to Le Penon beach, cafes and water park
  • Reduced mobility - the house is set on a slight hill so lots of stairs

Anything to watch out for?

The kitchen is small for the capacity but well equipped.

Pool fence added since pictures taken.

The accommodation is simple & homely rather than luxurious. It works really well for large groups of 2 or 3 families.

The Local Area

The Local Area: Hossegor (3 km)

Seignosse Ocean
The resort incorporating the fabulous beaches les Estagnots, Bourdaines and le Penon. It's a mostly residential area with a number of holiday homes and apartments. 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 with fabulous views of the course from the terrace.

Hossegor & Capbreton
The local region of Sud Landes is typical Aquitaine - endless stretches of sandy eaches 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 pedigree. It's a 'feelgood' place offering boutique shopping, great bars and restaurants, world-amous 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 quieter 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 boasts a modern marina, a charming town centre and market and remains, admirably, something of a French (and Spanish) secret.
