Endless shores, untamed waves and enchanting former hunting lodges, Les Maison Marines D’Huchet is an idyllic five-star haven and its new Honeymoon Getaway package is the perfect exclusive minimoon escape on France’s Atlantic coast – it even includes surfing lessons.
Located on the Landes coastline, the Huchet beach house and villas are a secret, hidden gem in the portfolio of three Michelin star chef Michel Guerard. The bolthole features an English Pavilion that exudes colonial charm, beautifully decorated with authentic furniture and paintings dating back to the Indo-Chinese and Indo-Portuguese periods. There are also two sun bleached villas, former hunting lodges, with equally stunning decors.
The exquisite new minimoon package gives newlyweds ample time to relax and unwind, in their exclusive-use villa with a private chef on hand to create gourmet picnics on the beach, afternoon tea on the veranda and al fresco aperitifs, overlooking the dunes and ocean. As part of the all-inclusive package, couples will enjoy chef’s “Cuisine Marine” dinner, featuring superb dishes including Salad of King Crab with Baby Lettuce and Citrus Velvety Sauce, Loin and Rack of Pyrénées Suckling Lamb grilled on the barbecue and Pear Soufflé with Dark Chocolate Sorbet.
A blissfull paradise perfect for a minimoon
As the Landes coastline is a favoured surfing spot for many and home to the warmest waters on France’s Atlantic coast, it’s the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon surf lesson (included as part of the package). Whether starting out bodysurfing or perfecting your Ariel, a private instructor will be on hand to help couples negotiate the constantly shifting sandbars and exceptional waves.
When honeymooners aren’t in the water there are ample activities to enjoy including walking between the sand dunes, exploring the local pine forest or just cosying up with a good book.
