Amid the wild sand dunes of France's Landes Coast, you will find Les Maison Marines d'Huchet.
The idyllic restored property dates back to 1858. Built by Baron Boulart, it includes two wooden lodges: the Rose des Vents and the Alouette des Mers. Maison Marines d’Huchet is neighbor to a tiny chapel and a large colonial mansion; the latter is where your meals will be served. Here, nature reigns supreme. This is where you will succumb to the untamed ocean’s sights and sounds.
The Beach House Suite in the Rose des Vents lodge is a former boathouse transformed into a secret lodge tucked away between the pine forest and sand dunes. Outside, the wood has been washed clean by the salty spray, while inside you will find red lacquer cupboards and earthenware jars. Children will find a cozy spot in the attic bedroom. You will wake up to a wild and wonderful view of the sand dunes from your window. The en suite bathroom features painted floor tiles. Take a leisurely soak in the marble bathtub. Gracing the interior of the two lodges find an eclectic ensemble of authentic Indo-Chinese and Indo-Portuguese period furniture and paintings collected by the owners. On the terrace you will truly feel surrounded by your wild and wonderful surroundings.
Grab a towel and head to the private, wind-whipped beach on the Landes coastline. A light picnic basket tags along so you can have a nibble on the sand.
Back at Maison Marines d’Huchet, warm up by the crackling fireplace in the lounge or with a calming cup of tea washed down with homemade cakes.
The beautiful restaurant’s arched windows welcome ample natural light into the wood-beamed ceiling space. Its Michelin-starred chef is inspired by nature, and creates recipes celebrating this incredible place and paired with wine.
At Les Maisons Marines d’Huchet you will find that the sky and ocean merge into one. It seems rather surprising that France would have such a remote pocket, but indeed it does, waiting for your visit.Request Information
