About Cap Ferret

Secluded, relaxed and authentic, the French oyster capital of Cap Ferret, on the Atlantic coast, is the perfect sophisticated seaside destination for those looking for a luxury villa holiday away from the crowds. This picturesque location is words apart from the glamorous Riviera, but without any compromise and style.

Cap Ferret is a small sandy peninsula that just south from the Medoc, approximately 30 miles west of Bordeaux. In the east you will find the glittering blue bay of Bassin d’Arcachon, home to stunning antique yachts. To the west, a third of a mile across the peninsula is the beach, which is hugely poplar with surfers. This is also where you will find local boulangeries and grill restaurants, perfect for long lunches before you head back to your luxury villa after the sun has set.

With villas popping up in amongst the sand dunes, you can feel like you have the beach to yourself from the comfort of your luxury villa. And if you decide to explore the area better, be sure to hire a bike there are lots of cycle routes, and the villages are worth exploring, especially when in heading to the local markets such as the one in Arcachon where you can buy ingredients for a beach picnic.

Getting There:

Cap Ferret is approximately an hour drive from Bordeaux airport or train station.
