La Co(o)rniche, for lovers of the Arcachon Bay

‘One of the strongest, most beautiful, most poetic, most surreal, and most powerful places in nature,' says Philippe Starck of La Co(o)rniche, whose decor he signed.

Perpetual amazement is sustained by the unique location of the place, 'set upon a kind of magic, a kind of miracle, an impossibility which is the highest dune in Europe.' A pile of surreal sand, a grand national site from which The Co(o)rniche shows a unique perspective.

The hotel, restaurant, terrace, and bar comprise an ensemble that has become an institution since opening in 2010. It is a must, an admirable edifice that offers an unforgettable view, and it exudes authenticity, thanks to its preserved Basque architecture. The main house offers rooms and suites complete with balconies and terraces that give onto the Arcachon Bay. The establishment also provides more intimate cabins, inspired by oyster-farming villages, overlooking the Banc d'Arguin.

It is hard not to fall into hyperbole when we think of this unparalleled Eden. In fact, it is not uncommon to find an awestruck tourist or a frequent visitor visibly moved by so much beauty, of which one never wearies.
