About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

I wanted a quiet natural unobstructed view of a sand dune, wildflowers, sandy beach, and a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean to see the superb sunsets from the terrace while dining late into the evening. Each evening the setting sun paints a Monet-like painting every few minutes to beguile. This is my place to retreat to, to relax, write, walk along the beach, the dunes and the forests, to swim, to cycle and to enjoy the sun while basking on the terrace or out on the sandy beach 40 meters from the house. This is after all one of the sunniest spots in France.

I wanted too a place from which I could easily go to visit the wine Chateaux of the Médoc, Graves, Saint-Emilion, Pomerol and Sauternes, to taste great wines and to make new friends. For culture and extensive shopping, there is Bordeaux (100 Km), a miniature Paris, and Saint-Emilion (140 Km), the prettiest town in France. And of course, each nearby town and village has its festivals and market days.

The weather is mostly dry warm and sunny. The wine is superb and the food exquisite. A fisherman's wharf is 15 Km away where the daily catch can be purchased. One can eat and drink so well in France. And then, there is that magnificent view, the Atlantic Ocean swells visible by moonlight from the bedroom window and from the terrace while breakfasting or dining out with the sunsetting in the background.

It is incredible that this place on a sand dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is mine, but I am willing to share it with you. And if you wish, I will advise you and help to make appointments on visiting the Wine Chateaux of Bordeaux. For larger groups of family or friends, it is possible to rent my place next door so that up to 8 people can be accommodated.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I am a wine journalist and wine consultant who obviously enjoys visiting the great Bordeaux wine Chateaux and tasting their fabulous wines.

Why the Owner Chose Soulac-sur-Mer, France:
I was born in Holland and spend my summers at the sea side on the North Sea coast. The dunes, beaches, pine forests around Amelie remind me of the coast of Holland but the weather is much more sunny and average temperatures are about 15 degrees warmer. The nearby wine regions of Bordeaux led me to visiting Amelie in 1989 and I fell in love with the place where there is enough space to get away from the crowd if you want to by simply walking further down the beach. Of course, our terrace is very private and sufficiently secluded from other people.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Amelie is one of the sunniest spots in France with even many sunny days during the mild winters. Temperatures in the 20 degrees Centigrade can occur between mid-March and end of October. The ocean air is so pure so that allergy sufferers like me can enjoy breathing freely and sleeping well to the soothing sound of the waves. Gourmets can enjoy great fresh foods available in the local supermarket or local farmers and fisherman's markets and of course great Bordeaux wines.
