Flat description:

South West oriented 1 bedroom flat of 52 sqm with a 36 sqm private garden. 2 allocated parking spaces. Fully fitted shower room and kitchen.

Development overview:

This intimate development consists in just 28 apartments divided on two buildings. One is a two-storey building of 21 apartments and the other building is a single-storey building with only 7 apartments. The development ranges from studio (one single room) to 2 bedroom apartments. All apartments have fitted kitchen and fitted shower room. The development boasts vast landscaped gardens (1.2 acres) in the vicinity of a pinewood and private parking. The wooden architecture reminds of the traditional material used in this area, the largest European forest.The building is labeled BBC (Bâtiment Basse Consommation, low consumption building).

The beach is literally a two-minute walk since you just have to climb the dune. From the development one can hear the soothing sound of waves breaking onto the shore. On the beach, which is one of those typical beaches of Landes, vast, wild and unspoilt, you have distant views over the Pyrenees rolling down into the Atlantic Ocean at the Spanish border. Apart from another new development the surroundings are occupied by villas in traditional “landais” style in vast gardens planted with maritime pines.

The location and its sourroundings:

Labenne-Océan is a typical resort of the Landes coastline. It is located in the middle of the famous Forêt des Landes which is the widest forest in Europe, planted with majestic pines. The “commune” of Labenne is divided into two separate spaces distant of 3.5 km the one from the other: Labenne-Bourg (Bourg meaning village) located in the forest and Labenne-Océan on the Ocean shore. This is a current features in the Landes where old villages were built inland and not on the coastline. Usually “forest villages” have their counterpart near the Ocean if not exactly on the coast itself because generally resorts are built behind the dunes. This is why you will find on the maps, Labenne and Labenne-Océan, Mimizan and Mimizan-Plage, Messanges and Messanges-Plage etc… Each village is distant from the other and there is not this endless succession of buildings as on other coastlines. As a result, the Landes coastline is a relatively undiscovered long ribbon (102 km) of almost empty sandy beaches, unspoilt dunes and tracks in the pine forest. This particular geography has protected the coast of massive urbanisation and this is all for the best! For a change from the Ocean (where swimming must be in the supervised area) there are many vast natural inland lakes of soft water which offer sailing activities and safe swimming for the little ones. Their sandy beaches are shaded by sweet smelling pines.
The French Côte Landaise is renowned for its excellent surfing conditions and shelters each September events of the World Surfing Cup. The easy going life style of surfers even permeates the general gentle way of life on this coast which is turned towards outdoor activities and nature. Another typical outdoor activity in the Landes is golf and there are no less than 7 golf courses in the Landes, of which 3 are very renowed (Hossegor, Moliets and Seignosse) and there are 11 other Golf courses in the neighbouring Pays Basque, with the famous Chiberta Golf in Anglet or Golf du Phare in famous Biarritz. As a matter of fact, Labenne is very close to the Pays Basque as it is only 16 km away from Bayonne, 20 km from Anglet and 24 km from Biarritz. Therefore on top of having the relaxed and sportive way of life of the Côte Landaise you can also very easily enjoy the vibrant lifestyle of the Côte Basque and discover the endearing Basque hinterland.
