Destination guide

Lège-Cap-Ferret – a different Bordeaux

A Bordeaux break with a difference awaits in Lège-Cap-Ferret vacation rentals. Instead of sipping white wines in country vineyards, you'll be looking out over the cobalt-blue Atlantic Ocean, surveying great sand dunes and munching on the freshest oysters in France. Forget the chi-chi resorts of the French Riviera, this seaside section of the country is authentic and lived-in. Salty oyster shacks beckon in rustic fishing villages, yachts billow across the breezy bays and life is good. Stays can come with pools, patios, gardens and even direct access to the beach.

Things to do

Lège-Cap-Ferret – where life is on the beaches

The peninsula of Lège-Cap-Ferret is surrounded by water on 3 sides. It might not have the pristine beaches of the Cote d'Azur, but there's something wilder and enticingly rustic about the coastal stretches, here. Pack the towel and sun cream and make for Grand Crohot Beach. It's one of the most gorgeous in the region, hosting longboarders and sandcastle builders beneath its high dunes. La Plage de La Pointe is another camera-clicker, wide and windswept, as it feathers out slowly into the Atlantic Ocean.


Adventures on the dunes and waves of Lège-Cap-Ferret

Lège-Cap-Ferret is there for travelers who love to really get stuck into a destination. It's a place you could spend the morning lazing on an empty beachfront, as fishing skiffs loll on the horizon, and the afternoon shelling oysters and learning cooking skills from flamboyant local chefs. Cycling the crooked coastal paths through forests and rising sand dunes is an option for adventurers, while simply soaking up the rays in Lège-Cap-Ferret vacation rentals with pools or oceanside gardens is perfect for those who are looking for some R&R.


When to live the Lège-Cap-Ferret good life

The Lège-Cap-Ferret is bathed in French sunshine for much of the summer. That warm and enticing season lasts from June to August. It's when most of the beachgoers and families come to Lège-Cap-Ferret vacation rentals to relax, unwind and wallow in the laid-back vibes of coastal Bordeaux. Temperatures regularly sit in the 70s, then, and it's certainly the top time to hit the sands and dunes. Fall – in September – is also a good option, if only to taste the oysters and fine white wines in the seaside bistros before winter sets in.

Natural features

Lège-Cap-Ferret – oceans and bays

Lège-Cap-Ferret pokes out of mainland France to separate the great Atlantic Ocean from wide Arcachon Bay. On its western side, the whole headland is a length of wide, sandy beaches that are topped by grassy dunes and backed by pockets of woodland. Surf is popular, with reliable swells rolling in from morning to night, most seasons. On the eastern side of the cape is where pine trees fringe one of the largest oyster-farming inlets in the world. It's there that the little marina towns line the coast, keeping watch over the sloshing, salty bays.
