Area & Experiences
About fifty kilometers from Bordeaux, the peninsula of Cap Ferret reveals its two sides: one, being wild and unpredictable, and the other, calm and serene. From one end you have the trashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashing up on the dunes, and on the other, small fishing boats rush into the Arcachon Bay to harvest oysters. While driving through the pine tree backwoods towards the lighthouse, passing through the oyster farmer village of Grand Piquay is where la Villa Eva resides.

Join our passionate local guide on a tour of the coastal trails. She will take you for an unusual hike through the wilderness and villages of her childhood. Push open closed doors, take secret paths and meet her favorite producers as you go along the coastline.
Put on the boots of an oyster farmer
Set out on Christian's flat-bottomed oyster boat early in the morning and wade into the water near his oyster farm at low tide. Here, equipped with boots and gloves, you’ll learn the craft of oyster farming and the life cycle of oysters. Christain cheerfully urges you on as you open the oysters: “this gives you strength”.
Tasting at sea
Leave the beach of L'Herbe on a traditional pinasse boat, in the company of a passionate oenologist Gildas and a supply of oysters from the bay. As Gildas presents his selection of Bordeaux grands crus on the boat's glazed deck, enjoy the discovery of his favorite wine and seafood combinations with the bird island’s huts on stilts on the horizon.
