The First Luxury Surf Hotel in Hossegor!

In the heart of the Landes, steps away from some of the best surf spots in Europe, Les Hortensias du Lac, built in the ’50s, is an iconic building in Hossegor’s history, classified and protected as “Monument de caractère”.

The resort is located on Hossegor interior lake, a true jewel of the Landes region. The hotel is just 500m from La Graviere beach, one of the best beach breaks in the world!

The Resort

An iconic figure of the seaside resort of Hossegor, Les Hortensias du Lac hotel is located on the western shore of the marine lake, in the shade of the pine trees of Les Landes. The hotel is a short walk away from the endless beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Les Hortensias Du Lac mixes Art Deco heritage and surf culture through the values ​​and unique atmosphere of the Les Domaines de Fontenille collection. The resort has 25 rooms and suites, a 450m2 mineral organic spa, an outside and heated 80sqm swimming pool, a restaurant overlooking the lake with a large terrace and a bar, a seminar room, and a fitness room.

La Cabane des Estagnots, less than 2 km from the resort, is one of the most famous “cabins” on the Landes coast and it is the ideal place for a relaxing break at any time of the day facing the ocean.

Waves at Les Hortensias Du Lac

Hossegor surf is the epicentre of the 230km coastline called the Côte d’Argent, the longest uninterrupted stretch of sandy beach in Europe. Hossegor is the land of the epic beach breaks: the exceptionally powerful, hollow, and perfect world-class waves have attracted the world’s best competitive surfers.

September to November is arguably the best time of year to surf in Hossegor. The water is warm from the summer, the waves are starting to pick up in size and the crowds are low. This is when the WSL Quik Pro France is held and there’s always a good vibe in town. From December to April you can expect big heavy barrels and powerful spring tides, suitable for advanced surfers looking to score! Families and total beginners will find plenty of fun waves from May to August: the summer months surf is more relaxed even if more crowded. The certified coaches of Las Hortensias du Lac will pick you up at the hotel to make you discover the sensations of surfing and improve your skills!

The Cuisine

The lake and the ocean offer a multitude of possibilities to experience unique moments as close as possible to nature.

James and the team at Awave do great work! Our trip was seamless the whole way through, which is really all you can ever ask for...plus the waves were great

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
