The Residence



Found just 2km from the Gironde estuary and the pretty beaches, Le Domaine du Phare offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere just 1.5km from the centre of the village of Le Verdon sur Mer. The Atlantic coastline is just 3km away, and provides plenty of outdoor activities as well as some stunning views.

The Port Médoc is a five minute drive away, or 40 minutes on foot, and the Pointe de Grave is just eight minutes away in the car. Whether you enjoy the beaches along the estuary or the seaside itself, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained at Le Domaine du Phare. Bordeaux is under a two hour drive away and provides stunning architecture and fine regional wines and cuisine. For a taste of the beautiful natural surroundings, the Parc Natural Regional des Landes de Gascogne is also just a two hour drive away, and is ideal for walking, cycling, horse riding and more.

Guests of Le Domaine du Phare will find 70 twinned holiday cottages, with a traditional French feel. Each of the rooms is brightly decorated with white walls and colourful furnishings, as well as plenty of communal outside space to enjoy. The residence itself is home to a large heated outdoor swimming pool, ideal for the warm summer months, as well as a play area for children. There’s table tennis for those who prefer to be more active, as well as a paddling pool for very little ones.

Each of the cottages offers guests the use of a private garden with a terrace, complete with garden furniture, ideal for al fresco dining. There is a kitchenette in each for those wanting to prepare their own meals using the fridge, microwave, grill, hobs, toaster, cafetière, kettle and dishwasher.

Those wanting to enjoy a meal out will find a selection of restaurants in the local area serving traditional French dishes and international choices. For some of the world’s best restaurants, including many Michelin star standard, a day out in Bordeaux is a good option.

There is plenty to be enjoyed during your stay at Le Domaine du Phare, with some fantastic water sports on offer. The more adventurous can try surfing or even land sailing, where the wind blows your boat across the sand, instead of the water! Alternatively, enjoy some water skiing or funboarding during your stay. Those wanting to remain on dry land will find golf courses available in the nearby area, as well as mini golf, and even paintballing.

Animal lovers and families will enjoy horse riding through the beautiful countryside, or packing up a picnic and walking through the forests. For something different, adults should book a tour through the vineyards of the area, learning how the delicious wines are produced, and no doubt sampling some along the way.


Things to see

For a taste of history, guests should visit the Médoc and Bordelais Castles, which are both around an hour and a half’s drive from the cottages.

Bordeaux is an hour and a half’s drive away and offers a fantastic selection of shops, bars, cafés and restaurants, as well as the opportunity to try fine local wines and delicious fare. Port Bloc is worth a visit for the views from its pretty lighthouse, as well as its fishermen’s market where guests can pick up delicious local items for picnics and meals made in the cottages.
