Hotel Wish list: La Co(o)rniche – by Philippe Stark
July 13, 2012 § Leave a comment
When I first saw these images, I was thought to myself “There it goes again, another beautiful hotel located somewhere far far away…infinite flight hours, jet lag…” and then all my thoughts stopped at the description, Pyla-Sur-Mer near Bordeaux…I looked again, suspicious and there I saw it: France! Fantastic: beautiful, designer hotel and within a couple of hours by plane reach!
The main reason for this beautiful and unexpected landscape is that La Coorniche Hotel is placed overlooking the Arcachon basin where some of the highest sand dunes of Europe are located, with a wonderful temperature and clear blue seas!
Philippe Starck has given it a Modern meets Neo-Basque look and transformed this 1930’s ex hunting lodge into one of the prettiest hotels along the coast. I suggest going there now,before it becomes too hip!
