The destination

Welcome to the Cap Ferret peninsula, one of the most popular destinations on the Atlantic coast.

You have surely already seen this peninsula of wooded dunes, its incredible natural point of fine sand and tall maritime pines that separates the Bay of Arcachon from the Atlantic Ocean.

On the one hand, the calm of the beaches of the Basin, its fishing villages, the charm of a preserved traditional habitat.

On the other, the immensity and purity of the invigorating ocean beaches.

Everywhere, nature is omnipresent, like an essential reminder of the present moment.

Explore these preserved spaces and explore all the corners of this peninsula with its renowned microclimate.
