Philippe Starck and a lot of sand..


An unusal combination you may think, but it is a fabulous one.

An hour and half's drive away from Maison No.20 is the largest sand dune in Europe - la dune du pilat and a short distance from it is a fabulous hotel designed by the one and only Philippe Starck.


This is the hotel facade, how fabulous are those tiles?




Climbing the sand dune was an amazing experience which seemed to go on and one and coming down was a lot easier than going up.

 Sand, sand and more sand....



We visited on Sunday morning which was cloudy and cold  but the sun came out later in the day. 

We wanted to have a refreshment at the hotel but unfortunately the hotel restaurant was opening at noon and we had a RDV foor midday so hope to visit again next month.

French Boyfriend had some furniture to collect in a village nearby hence we were combining work with pleasure and it was a great day out.



bonne semaine à tous, Leeann
