Near the Dune de Pilat- the highest sand dunes in Europe- the famous Cap Ferret peninsula in Aquitaine is one of the top summer destinations in France. Between the Bassin d’Archachon and the Atlantic Ocean, a brand new resort is making waves in southwest France. The Domaine du Ferret is comprised of a four-star hotel, a Cinq Mondes spa, and a Balneotherapy center, as the complex is the brainchild of Serge Blanco, who’s established himself as an authority on balneo spas with his thalassotherapy spa in the town of Hendaye on the French-Spanish border.
In perhaps the biggest news for the property, chef Pascal Nibaudeau—who used to help the Michelin-starred Pressoir d’Argent at the Grand Hôtel in Bordeaux—will open a luxury brasserie onsite called the Cabanon du Pinasse. The cuisine promises to combine the best of the land and the sea; think blue lobster, veal sweetbreads, haddock with foie gras and truffle jus, goat's cheese with cucumber coulis, and smoked eel with dill.
The official inauguration of the Domaine du Ferret will take place in early July 2015.
