Overview

Soulac sur Mer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

I wanted a quiet natural unobstructed view of a sand dune, wildflowers, sandy beach, and a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean to see the superb sunsets from the terrace while dining late into the evening. Each evening the setting sun paints a Monet-like painting every few minutes to beguile. This is my place to retreat to, to relax, write, walk along the beach, the dunes and the forests, to swim, to cycle and to enjoy the sun while basking on the terrace or out on the sandy beach 40 meters from the house. This is after all one of the sunniest spots in France.

I wanted too a place from which I could easily go to visit the wine Chateaux of the Médoc, Graves, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Sauternes, to taste great wines and to make new friends. For culture and extensive shopping, there is Bordeaux (100 Km), a miniature Paris, and Saint-Emilion (140 Km), the prettiest town in France. And of course, each nearby town and village has its festivals and market days.

The weather is mostly dry warm and sunny. The wine is superb and the food exquisite. A fisherman's wharf is 15 Km away where the daily catch can be purchased. One can eat and drink so well in France. And then, there is that magnificent view, the Atlantic Ocean swells visible by moonlight from the bedroom window and from the terrace while breakfasting or dining out with the sunsetting in the background.

It is incredible that this place on a sand dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is mine, but I am willing to share it with you. And if you wish, I will advise you and help to make appointments on visiting the Wine Chateaux of Bordeaux. For larger groups of family or friends, it is possible to rent my place next door so that up to 8 people can be accommodated.

About The Owner

I am a wine journalist and wine consultant who obviously enjoys visiting the great Bordeaux wine Chateaux and tasting their fabulous wines.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Soulac sur Mer

I was born in Holland and spend my summers at the sea side on the North Sea coast. The dunes, beaches, pine forests around Amelie remind me of the coast of Holland but the weather is much more sunny and average temperatures are about 15 degrees warmer.

The nearby wine regions of Bordeaux led me to visiting Amelie in 1989 and I fell in love with the place where there is enough space to get away from the crowd if you want to by simply walking further down the beach. Of course, our terrace is very private and sufficiently secluded from other people.

What makes this house unique

Amelie is one of the sunniest spots in France with even many sunny days during the mild winters. Temperatures in the 20 degrees Centigrade can occur between mid-March and end of October.

The ocean air is so pure so that allergy sufferers like me can enjoy breathing freely and sleeping well to the soothing sound of the waves.

Gourmets can enjoy great fresh foods available in the local supermarket or local farmers and fisherman's markets and of course great Bordeaux wines. A special treat is seeing the goats at our local Chevrerie which makes a variety of fabulous fresh goat cheeses.

Escape from your Business Life and enjoy the silence, the spectacular sunsets and delisious vines

  • 5 of 5
This year we spent the first week of September in house nr. 9. All the pictures describe the house and the surroundings exactly as it is.
We enjoyed the long walks along the beach, whether it was in the morning or in the evening. There is a good bakery only a hundred meters away where you can have all kinds of bread, delicious french tartes and all kinds of coffee, espresso etc. There are several places in walking distance where you can have lunch or diner. When you want to prepare your diner yourself, don’t forget to go the market in Soulac sur Mer, which is only 4 km away and you can buy her everything, fresh fish, meat and vegatables. But don’t forget to ask Nico for good and affordable Bordeaux vines. He is also perfect in organizing visits to important vineries (Chateaus) in the Bordeaux area.
A delicious diner in the evening during sunset and a glass of good Bordeaux vine is really all you need to be happy.

Fantastic location and brilliant views

  • 4 of 5
The beach house is simply furnished, with basic amenities (the pictures say it all) and is in keeping with the back-to-nature setting on the dunes. Great for admiring the spectacular sunsets.

Traum für Ruhesuchende

  • 5 of 5
Ende März sind wir dem deutschen Winter entflohen. Abends in Amelie angekommen waren wir beeindruckt von der Nähe zum Meer, die Brandung war einfach nur klasse! Das Reihenendhaus liegt sehr ruhig auf einer Düne und man hat einen wunderschönen Blick aufs Meer. Wir konnten auf der Terrasse die warme Sonne genießen. Man kann lange Strandspaziergänge machen, in Soulac (4km) einkaufen oder flanieren. Das Haus ist in einem gepflegten Zustand, gut eingerichtet. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Wir können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen.

Genießen Sie Ruhe, Sonnenuntergänge und Weine

  • 5 of 5
In diesem Jahr verbrachten wir die erste Septemberwoche im Haus Nr. 9. Alle Bilder beschreiben das Haus und die Umgebung genau so, wie es ist.
Wir genossen die langen Spaziergänge am Strand, egal ob am Morgen oder am Abend. Nur hundert Meter vom Haus entfernt ist eine gute Bäckerei, wo man alle möglichen Brotsorten, französische Tartletts und alle Kaffees, ob Espresso, Milchkaffee oder Capuccino kaufen kann. Es gibt mehrere Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe, wo man zum Mittag oder zum Abend gut essen kann. Wenn man seine Mahlzeiten selbst zubereiten möchte, sollte man zum Markt in Soulac sur Mer fahren, der nur ca. 4 km entfernt ist. Hier kann man fast alles kaufen: Frischen Fisch oder Fleisch oder Gemüse. Sie sollten aber nicht vergessen, Nico nach einer Adresse für guten und bezahlbaren Bordeauxwein zu fragen. Er organisiert auch perfekt einen Besuch von Weingütern (Chateaus) in der gesamten Bordeaux Gegend.
Ein köstliches Abendessen auf der Terrasse beim Sonnenuntergang ist tatsächlich alles was man zum Glücklich-Sein benötigt.
