Our first week in France was spent in Lacanau-Océan, a super cute and lively beach town on the Atlantic coast that hosts the Medoc Ocean Lacanau Pro surf contest. Before we left for Europe, I was searching for a hotel/Airbnb/vacation rental/hostel, anything, for several days and was struggling to find somewhere for us to stay in Lacanau. Everything was either miles away from the ocean, or way over our price range. One day, while re-doing the same search I must have done a dozen times, an adorable surf hostel, Villa Zenith, showed an opening for a private bedroom + private bathroom for €80/night… Perfect. Oh, and it’s two blocks down from the beach. Amazing! I booked it within minutes.
The Villa is a three-story house with a gorgeous patio with a lovely lounge, outdoor table, a couple chairs to sunbathe and an outdoor shower. Inside, the communal kitchen has everything you may need and the living room provides a cozy spot to watch the Olympics.
Our room was spacious and stylishly decorated with driftwood pieces and beach art. We were thankful for the no-smoking rules inside the house, as that may be considered rare in France. Plus, you can’t beat having a private bathroom in a hostel! The best part, however, is the views over the roofs of Lacanau…
