The original Maranga’s Surfvilla in Seignosse is an institution at the Atlantic coast since 10 years. All facilities are settled in a unique venue. From the garden you can see the dune shimmering through the pine trees. Thus, it’s only a short walk until you are at the miles long beach, which stretches from Bordeaux down to Biarritz. The perfect sand bars are responsible for a variety of spot situations. Beginners as good as advanced will find their place in the surf. You can easily check the spot and decide upon the quality of waves and surely a nice sunset surf is a great final option for each day. In the Surfvilla you can combine relaxing and chill-out time with your daily surf experience. If you enter the Villa you’re invited to leave behind everything else and dive into the feel good atmosphere of the house and its weekly residents. Here you can learn to surf or better increase your individual surfing skills – everything is possible
The house is directly located at the atlantic ocean in Seignosse, urban district Le Penon. You create your own temple of joy in between pine trees in a relaxing garden with hammocks and places to chill. It is a quick jump to the beach (about 5 min). Several surf spots are easily to reach so there is a wide range to pick for every surf level. On one hand you will have a huge sand bank with perfect waves in shallow water for beginners, on the other hand a couple of peaks for advanced surfer nearby.
The centre of Le Penon is only a few minutes by walk. You can get everything what you need. From supermarkets over pharmacy to bars, cafes, clubs and surf shops. Every sunday a huge market will take place.There selling regional goods, handcrafts and clothe, perfect to get some souvenirs.

The basic camp language is german, because most guests are from germany, austria and switzerland but the surf courses are partly being held in English, too. Families will feel comfortable here, but to attend the surf course children should be at least 10 years old. If you want to bring your dog, just ask and we see what we can do.
The camp owners are Roland Oberperfler (better known as Lando) and Connie Rothe. They have a wide experience by managing surfcamps and fulfilled their dream of having a cozy surfer house close to the beach – and so the original Surfvilla Seignosse came to life.
