I spent one night there, during an off-peak November week-end (the Cap Ferret area was almost deserted). Driving to the hotel late at night was no easy thing, with all the one-way roads around the hotel. But a warm greeting expected me and my first feeling was good because the property looks like a nice old guesthouse. Anyhow my wooden... More

First time in Cap Ferret, incredible beaches along the Atlantic coast Oysters are produced in great scale for consumption in Paris and all France Try to miss the traffic leaving on Sundays back to Bordeaux, it can be terrible The rooms are very cosy, old fashion way, built all in wood, creaky stears, small bathrooms but you don't need more...

We stayed in this hotel for several days in June. If you have read the ratings you will already know about the tiny rooms, lack of sitting rooms (apart from the bar) and the 'chic' paintwork, so I don't need to go over all that. I would just add, there is no air conditioning and of course you can just... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2011, and I can only say it was absolutely amazing. The Cap Ferret area in general is a lovely area to visit with the Bassin D'Arcachon and a bit further on St. Emillion and Bordeaux. The hotel is small scale and the room we stayed in was designed in Colonial style with... More

The hotel is extreemly charming in an old fashioned french seaside way.It is actually done up to look like this and succeeds completely.It could aso be described as New England chic. The food is second to none .The wine list is far too expensive. If You are staying on one of the hotel offers or packages ,unfortunately you are put... More

perfect place to spend a weekend in the Springtime or even before the Summer holidays, to rest, read and walk around, e.g on the long beach of Cap Ferret (not crowded in March), breath some fresh air...

Excellent restaurant and stylish New England type decor. Let down slightly by lack of general areas for relaxation and absence of car park. Not the easiest place to find - head for the lighthouse and ask!

My mum and I booked to stay here during the few days between Christmas and New Year and it proved the perfect escape. Our lovely room was tucked at the top of the stairs in the main part of the hotel and featured a beautiful double bed and open plan bathroom. The hotel breakfast was fantastic and the bar proved...

We came during the summer on a two week tour around France, this was our third stop for sadly just three nights. Loved the area and the hotel which has a lovely restaurant. The nearby beach on the Atlantic side is stunning and not crowded plus Rusty our pup could happily run around, which isnt the case on all the... More

Do NOT book to stay here if you want a spa, pool or to have to dress for dinner. This hotel is an authentic throwback to a simpler time when a holiday was a time to relax, refresh and recharge. It does not do flash, bang or even wallop well. It sits perfectly at the Southern end of Cap Ferret,... More
