How did you like the accommodation?


Secret Spot Lodge is a brilliant base to explore the surf around the area. The house is super comfortable and it feels really like a home. Nelly and Troy go out of their way to make sure things are running smoothly. Important point to note: it is very important to have your own car as the house is not close to many amenities.

Hi Frederique, thanks for your review. Yes a car is advisable as in this area of France beaches and villages are set apart, the amenaties however are only a short cycle ride away on our bikes. This is mentioned on our site.
No warning really needed for the surf. It may be better to check surf seasons of where you are going before you book your next surf trip. In the spring time and summer in this area there are small friendly summers waves great for beginners and improvers like yourself. October in France has a very well known and documented big wave season and has been on the surfers path for decades , thus the Quiksilver Pro France being held during your stay.

Troy is a brilliant instructor - patient, knowledgeable and encouraging.
But be warned: France's surf is brutally strong, especially in October!

How did you like the accommodation?


The owners, nelly and troy are so welcoming and friendly and the accommodation is beautiful, very nicely decorated and a lush seating area and swimming pool outside. It's only a 10 minute drive to moliets which is a huge beach with lots of restaurants, if you fancy a treat try hotel l'ocean. We traveled the rest of the coast south to Spain and came back to moliets as it was our favourite.

How did you like the surf lessons?


My husband and I had 2 lots of lessons. We have had lessons from other instructors and found troy excellent, his knowledge, patience and safety were second to none and he gave us loads of tips of where to surf that was suited to our level, and more importantly, where not too. Look forward to more lessons next year!
