Côté Sable Hotel

Cap Ferret

Luxury, Peace and Beauty

The Arcachon Basin, never heard of it? Neither had we until we have found this little travel gem of a hotel in Cap Ferret near Bordeaux. The Arcachon Basin is home to the oyster-farming ports and villages that this region is known for and the colourful cookie cutter houses are straight out of a fairy tale. 

The Côté Sable Hotel offers a contemporary version of the traditional huts of oyster farmers on the peninsula of Cap Ferret. The hotel opens right on the sea side for a timeless stay at the foot of the Basin. In this preserved and sheltered natural setting, guests are able to appreciate the beauty of the fine sand beaches, the wild charm of the dunes adorned with sea grass, the pleasure of the outings in the sea, bike rides alongside the fishermen's houses, the tastings of fresh oysters ...

The only thing left on our to-do list for this area is a visit the Dune du Pyla, Europe’s largest sand dune at more than 100 meters high. We will include a picture and then you'll know why it is on our list!
