Area & Experiences
On La Côte d'Argent, in the region of Arcachon Bay, you come upon small marinas, lighthouses, sandy beaches and pine forests. At its extreme south, you reach the small seaside resort of Pyla-sur-Mer, known as home to the tallest dune in Europe, the Dune of Pilat. Five hundred meters away, in the residential area of Pilat-Plage, Villa Tourmaline nestles above the beach.

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.
