Villa Ecolo - sleeps 10 in 4 bedrooms
Villa Ecolo in Aquitaine, France sleeps 10 people. Designed by prestigious Bordeaux architects and constructed from wood, steel and concrete, this extraordinary and very contemporary residence sits grandly in a lush, private garden with a long, heated swimming pool.
Situated on a hill in a peaceful residential area of Arcachon, the villa is easily accessible to the town and large bay which is a paradise for beach lovers, gastronomers and wine aficionados as well as those who simply enjoy a gentle stroll, shop or boat trip. Before you go out to explore, have fun finding your way around your new home and enjoying the opulence and modernity of its furnishings and facilities.
The open plan living-dining room has a window view of a green swathe of bamboo, as lush as the backdrop to a Gaugin painting. Doors from this space open onto the stunning alfresco dining area and pool terraces. The first bedroom is on the ground floor with the other three bedrooms up the impressive stairs. The master bedroom is particularly spectacular, with its own dressing room and the glass sided bathroom in the centre of the room. Its spacious balcony overhangs the terrace and pool and has a view of the gardens and surrounding neighbourhood.
It may be difficult to leave all this luxury behind but the many joys of Arcachon are to be found across this region. You could start by visiting one of the loveliest of Arcachon's many long, gentle sandy beaches, just 2km away, with fine sand, a lovely promenade, cycle lanes and grassy lawns beneath the area's iconic pines. Relax under your parasol and look across the Bassin d'Arcachon towards Cap Ferret, a popular residence for celebrities and well worth a visit. Don't miss out The Dune du Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe, is only 9km away by bike.
The tourist heart of the town has the main beach, plenty of wide shopping streets as well as a casino and many cafes and restaurants. Order oysters, fish and seafood harvested from the bay. Walk eastwards towards the port and fishing area, look at the heritage vessels or head away from the coast towards the residential Ville d'Hiver and look at the eccentric 19th century villas, particularly prevalent in this quarter.
The energetic can explore the walking trails, hire a bike, sailing boat, canoe or play golf nearby. Or spend a relaxing day on an oyster tasting and wine tour and visit the chateaux of the Medoc wine region. If you find yourself missing city cultural pursuits, take the 52 minute train journey to Bordeaux and spend the day visiting its gothic cathedral, art museums and public gardens.
