What makes Villa Mandevilla a great holiday rental
Nice villas for two with a private pool are very rare in France which is why we are so pleased to take on Villa Mandevilla. The locaton is quiet, very close to local amenities, and just a short drive or bike ride to the beach. The sunny deck & pool aren't overlooked and have plenty of room if you just want to chill out at home. It's a great area for surfing, cycling, eating out. In short, a lovely Aquitaine holiday home for two. The owner will also accept bookings from couples with a baby (up to 6 months old).
Couples wanting their own pool, close to local amenities and great beaches.
Anything to watch out for?
Not really. The owner lives in the next-door house and is on-hand if needed but otherwise will leave you in complete privacy.
A lovely stretch of Aquitaine coast mixing great beaches, places to eat, shopping, and a cool surfing 'vibe'. There's Hossegor's lovely lagoon, Seignosse nature reserve, Capbreton marina and plenty of activities (surf, golf, tennis, cycling, sailing & more).

Seignosse Bourg is a small Landais village just inland from the Atlantic coast. There's a few shops including boulangerie in the village centre and a couple of restaurants to choose from. It's great bonus is a big tennis centre.
Golf de Seignosse
A water and forest 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 à la carte meals in the evening.
4kms to the west are 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!
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. Capbreton is 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. It remains 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 are normally a few locals here trying to catch a fish for supper. It makes for great viewing!
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, and a lovely golf course and a beautiful lake for safe bathing.
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 Seignosse, a water and forest monster of a course ranked in Continental Europe’s Top 50. There are other great courses within 45 minutes drive including Moliets and several around Biarritz.
Hossegor & Capbreton regularly holds major surfing competitions; the whole Aquitaine coast is a perfect venue for surfers but here the presence of an offshore hollow in the sea-bed gives the waves 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.
