Built in 1903, this stunning beachfront villa is one of the best examples of Arcachon architecture of that period. Recently renovated with a contemporary feel, this property sits at the water's edge commanding expansive views over the Bassin d'Arcachon. The tidal nature of Bassin d'Arcachon means that the spectacular views framed by the floor to ceiling windows are constantly changing throughout the day.
A short walk from a village with restaurants, commodities and amenities and a five minute drive to the vibrant market town of Andernos with its seafront fishing huts selling fresh fish and oysters, the villa's positioning is unsurpassed and guests are guaranteed a gourmet delight! The villa is tucked away down a secluded driveway on the seashore. A 4,500m² garden surrounds the villa ensuring a completely private residence. The gardens are infused with a touch of Eastern charm with a natural ecological 4x15m lap pool enjoying a sun veranda at one end adorned with bright drapes and cushions. The Asian infusion continues inside with crisp, bright rooms splashed with exotic furnishings and accessories. Expertly designed around optimizing the outdoor views out towards the sea, Villa du Cap is a stunning beachfront property that invites the guest to bask in complete relaxation and tranquillity. Villa du Cap offers 8 en-suite bedrooms, all equipped with flat widescreen TV's, built-in wardrobes, internet access and hairdryer. The large master bedroom called 'L'eau Vive' is located on the first floor and boats magnificent views of Arcachon and Cap Ferret from its huge private terrace.

This is an exceptional and a very special place on the edge of Atlantic Ocean bay.What is special about this place? The answer is simple – everything! The location, where ocean waters licking the stairs of the Villa are very warm and friendly. The sand is ideal for building beautiful castles by children and their parents. The air is so stunning so one can materially feel it. We were sleeping for more than 9 hours and could not get up as if we took sleeping drugs. The house has been restored by current owners with a great love and taste. Maintaining the traditional feel with a slight oriental touch in design it has all contemporary features for the comfort living. One can’t forget the warmth of the sun sitting on the dinner table on the open terrace. The garden, where you can not only enjoy the beauty of grass and trees, but can gather fresh vegetables for your lunch. The swimming pool with its gentle natural water has surprised all of us. Its moisturizing effect is easily compared with the best French body cream. Food – this is something what would be difficult to describe as none of the adjectives exist to express it. Maybe just one – simply stunning French cuisine. We had a pleasure of being taking care by three chefs and all of them are just unforgettable. And last but not least the Villa team – very friendly, helpful, ready to assist at all times. Of course the pearl of the team is its manager without whom our stay could not be as memorable as it turned out. This is a place where you want to come again and again! Thank you all!”

The finishing touches
Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.
The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
