Single Fin Hotel & Lodge
Reviews (3)
5 out of 5

After years and years of Mimizan, we thought it couldn’t get any better, but we’ve never been so glad to be wrong. Sandwiched between the forests and the sea, located at the riverfront only steps away from the beach, and opening in 2018: The Single Fin Hotel & Lodge. Laid to back, beachy and tasteful, it has it all.

The Single Fin Hotel & Lodge is a classic basque landaise home from the outside, but with bohemian comfort inside. Crammed with Scandinavian touches, big sofas, a huge fireplace and quirky treasures from around the world, its décor blends in perfectly in this region that loves its tradition. There are 18 rooms, all with private bathrooms and balcony and they share a large rooftop terrace and an open to plan living area on the ground floor with bar and restaurant facilities.

The hotel is run by a French couple. Arnaud grew up in this hotel ran by his father and after travelling all over the world to find the best surf, him and his wife Aurelie settled here with their daughter Mila. Together they welcome you with the sincere pleasure and personalised advice of natural born hosts – daily breakfast, arranging surf lessons, bike hire or superb massages and yoga they’ll be there for you.

The warm welcome from the staff and the fantastic views set it far above a simple hotel or other surf accommodation and you’re only minutes from the centre of the town.

Location

The small village of Mimizan, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Silver Coast”, enjoys a peaceful location between the ocean and the forest. The permanent movement of the wind and the tides give this delightful coastline an ever to changing landscape of beaches, lagoons and forest marshland which can be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback. Mimizan to Plage is home to 7 supervised beaches which offer a selection of seaside activities for young and old alike (surfing, swimming etc). The micro to climate of the Aquitaine coast encourages a wide variety of flora and fauna, including holm and cork oaks, broom, heather and gorse, as well as deer, squirrels, tits and owls. In Mimizan to Bourg, explore unusual museums such as the Monument des Ailes or discover the secrets of the area’s more hidden treasures. And when it comes to food, make sure you try the region’s fish and seafood alongside specialities from the inland Landes area.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Ich habe das Zimmer 101 belegt und war schon bei der Ankunft von der Freundlichkeit und der Servicebereitschaft der Kunden begeistert! Alles ist mit sehr viel Liebe dekoriert, nicht überladen und alles was ich gesehen habe entspricht einem absoluten neuen Renovierungsstand. Das Essen war super, der Service hervorragend. Nicht zu vergleichen mit dem alten Hotel Besitzer.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Hartelijke ontvangst door de eigenaren. De kamer is schoon, sfeervol en van alle gemakken voorzien inclusief een zonnewering om het echt donker te maken en uitzicht op de rivier en oceaan. Heel fijn zonterras en restaurantruimte om andere mensen te ontmoeten en te relaxen. Het eten is heerlijk, kleurrijk, vers en met liefde bereid, ruime porties.


How were the surf lessons?

     

Strand is op loopafstand, daar 4 dagen goeie surflessen gehad. Echt een aanrader!

Mimizan-plage

Mimizan-plage

Level: All Levels

Quiet place but with good enough waves to produce a handful champs. Four beaches on either side of the rivermouth that helps sculpt some good sandbars, particularly from mid to high tide.

Highly consistent and changeable so keep checking. Courant de Mimizan brings estuary pollution and offshores bring foul smells from nearby paper factories.
