Village des Pêcheurs

The “Fishermen's village”, which gathers 12 suites on stilts around a small lake, and evokes the oyster-farms of the Arcachon Bay. Jane de Boy, Mimbeau, Le Canon… the rooms are named after the villages of Cap Ferret, and offer 65 square meters of pure rapture. Inside, we find the "buco-chic" atmosphere that permeates Les Sources de Caudalie. The luxuriant wallpapers are enhanced by whitewashed panels, creating a lovely intimate atmosphere. The walls are decorated with a delightful jumble of photos, witch's mirrors, and butterfly collections that give each suite its own particular feel and a family ambiance. Accessible by the disabled and people with reduced mobility.

Le Vent du Large

“Le Vent du Large” (Sea Breeze) is the most enchanting Suite. The colors of the room, purple and parma, and its chimney, more than welcome during the cold winter nights, make you enter a world of charm and refinement.

L'Ile aux Oiseaux

The mythic suite « L’IÎe aux Oiseaux » (Bird Island) is a reminiscent of the cabanes tchanquées (cabins on stilts) in the Arcachon Bay. This room overlooking the lake is a true haven of peace, both outside, thanks to its charming raised deck, and inside, where an utterly soft and feminine décor awaits.

After two collaborations with highly contemporary designers, bridal wear designer Delphine Manivet has revived the bucolic charm of this luxury cabin. L’Île aux Oiseaux is now a 50-m2 cocoon where time seems to stand still – a refuge for lovers everywhere.
