An especially built ramp that gives access to the outdoor covered terrace and dining room as well as to one of the bedrooms, allows us to also receive guests with reduced physical mobility.

“L’eau Vive” boasts a magnificent outdoor terrace. Enjoy a glass of Champagne with splendid views of Arcachon and Cap Ferret across the Bassin, or sooth your tired muscles after an active day in our luxuriously appointed en-suite bathroom with a double shower, water jets and separate spa tub.

In “La Verandah” guests may shower in the bright sunshine that this spacious bathroom receives in the morning. Floor to ceiling doors opening onto the lower level arched verandah ensure direct access to the garden and beach beyond.
Living Rooms: The spacious contemporary dining room with its magnificent sea view is a perfect place for a romantic dinner, or to receive guests for seminars. Its floor-to-ceiling windows open up to a grand covered terrace and to the arched verandah. Indoors guests may delight in the crackle of fire in the 2-way open fire place, connecting the dining room with the kitchen area.

The dining room opens up to the generous living room. Here guests will find the perfect spot to read a book and catch-up with friends.

Taken back in time, guests may choose their favorite vintage, from a deep leather armchair, in front of the marble fireplace in our pinewood panelled library.
Other Rooms: An office is located on the first floor. Guests can use it for meetings, workshop sessions, faxing, printing, and as a retreat to prepare meetings, or simply check their emails. The villa has WIFI throughout and every room is also equipped with a fixed internet access point. In addition most of the rooms have air conditioning.

Originally the snooker room, the Home Cinema boasts a 55 inch flat screen TV and state of the art video system. Settle down in comfortable plush chairs and watch your preferred movie. With the click of a finger the theatre, can be turned into a meeting room for any kind of seminar or conference.

Outside: The spectacular park has wide vistas over the front lawn that extend as far as Cap Ferret and Arcachon. A century old stone wall, lined with Tamaris trees separates the grounds from a direct stroll onto the beach at low tide, or a refreshing dip at high tide.

The garden offers guests a unique experience with its ecological pool filled with our own natural spring water, a petanque field and outdoor table tennis. The rectangular minimalistic pool, with its natural filtering and regeneration ponds, rather resembles a genuine lake blending into the garden. The water is filtered and regenerated through plants, rocks and pebbles. Next to the pool are comfortable lounge chairs on the huge deck with 180 degree views of the garden and shore line. The pool deck also offers another spot to organize romantic candle light dinners, group dinners, seminars or photo shoots.

The garden leads directly onto the fine sand of the beach where a range of water activities, including swimming, sailing, surfing, fishing and many more are available. Boating outings to the magnificent Bande d’Arquin and L’ile des Oiseaux, or even a trip with a local fisherman to one of his oyster parks may be organized on demand. Guests may consume the delicious oysters they have harvested on the spot or share them for lunch with their friends or family.

In the summer, guests may dine on one of the outdoor terraces showered in the sunset’s natural light-show of pinks, oranges, yellows and reds. In winter you can enjoy a roaring fire in the luxurious dining room.

Local Area / Activities

This beach front property is hidden away in Taussat/Lanton, just a 30 minutes drive from ravishing vineyards and Merignac/Bordeaux airport. Merignac has many scheduled and seasonal international flights arriving direct or via Paris every day. There are also daily frequent flights from other domestic cities. Activities at and around the villa range from deeply relaxing to highly animate, from cultural to inspirational. The swimming pool draws guests on warm summer days, while the petanque court asks for some team play. Guests can explore the direct environment by strolling onto the beach, boating, horseback riding, or cycling. Bicycles are at the guest's disposal for those who just want to discover the local fisherman villages, or those who want to spin further afield to the Atlantic Ocean. Favoured choices for daytrips include a helicopter flight of the Bordeaux vineyards crowned with a wine tasting, the endless beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, a climb up to the highest dune of Europe Dune de Pyla, a boating outing to the Arguin sandbank and the Ile aux Oiseaux, or kayaking over the Leyre. And don't forget your binoculars to watch the different bird species, such as the Sandwich Tern or the Oyster Catcher, while hiking through the protected natural bird migration park Domaine de Certes. Nestled in the heart of the forest and well protected from dominant winds, the fresh-water lakes North and South of the Bay offer yet another option for safe swimming, sailing lessons and fishing. Less then half an hour east lays the world famous French Bordeaux Wine District. Guests can relish the renowned wines from Saint-Emilion, Graves, Sauternes, Medoc, Entre-deux-Mers and Pessac-Leognan, to name but a few. Soak up the vineyards in a luxury car with a private chauffeur giving you the freedom to taste as many appellations you like. Guests may stock their own wines in the house cellar to enjoy during returning visits. The possibilities are almost endless: horseback riding through the thick pine forests or on the infinite beaches of white sand, golfing on the Internationally acclaimed Golf du Medoc Chateaux course at the foot of the vineyards, or for those seeking more adrenaline driven sports, what about speed sailing, paragliding at the Dune de Pyla or kite surfing?
