The House

The story of our house

The property was bought by Xavier’s father in 1998. In 2015, Xavier decided to begin construction on Bodysurf House. The former Bodysurf Paradise was demolished in May 2016. The demolition was interrupted for 10 days, during which time the house was painted by creative street art artists. We hosted an exhibition and had a beautiful party here.

The construction of the Bodysurf House started at the beginning of September 2016. Xavier and his friends (Jimmy, Baptiste, Julien, Mike, Erwin & Seb) took turns helping out during this 10 month challenge.

We reached our first goal successfully by overcoming some of the major works in only 2 months. The staircase was laid in early December and in the following days the carpenters were at work so that Xavier and Jimmy could finally lay the tiles before Christmas.

In January 2017, construction resumed, with the installation of joinery helping to shelter the site from the elements.

For the rest of the project, other friends and family members (Marie, Olivier, Alain, Noel, Eliane, Daniel, Michele, Franck & Vic) helped out, putting their skills to use to aid Xavier, the main Project Manager.

The Bodysurf House was successfully completed at the end of June in time for our grand opening in summer of 2017.

 

It was a remarkable performance and a beautiful story of friendship and solidarity.

The kitchen

The kitchen is the main space for sharing and conviviality. While concocting your best dishes using the cooking facilities and bench space on the floating island you can look through the glass floor below and see all the surf material below your feet. Two sinks, two hotplates, two ovens, a dishwasher, a microwave and a large American fridge/freezer are at your disposal as well as personal tubs for storing your food. The kitchen is designed for communal cooking.  Why not share recipes and good dishes? The kitchen becomes the main place for meetings and exchanges. On our splendid outdoor terrace you can use the decking area to enjoy your meals and drinks.

The exterior

Our decking made from local Landes pine trees is west facing, giving us non stop sunshine from midday to sunset. This beautiful space sheltered from the wind is the ideal space to have lunch or dinner on the large wooden tables. A barbeque and plancha is available to our visitors who can enjoy our comfortable sun-lounges and jacuzzi.

A perfect spot for you to chill after your surf session.

The backyard pathway, which leads directly to our local surf spots, is decorated by our seasonal garden of tomatoes, peppers, herbs and lettuce which you might like to incorporate into your meals or use to accompany your barbecues.

The bathrooms

A sanitary area can be found on the second floor, next to the bedrooms. The bathroom has a south facing balcony. On clear days you can admire the peaks of the Pyrenees from the balcony or looking out the windows.

This space allows for the privacy of all our guests and includes two toilets, two independent showers and four washbasins as well as a large wall mirror which gives the room a wonderful open feeling.

There are also two extra showers and a toilet in the basement, which are easier to access from outside after being out in the waves.

The basement

The basement is very well lit, thanks to its glass ceiling, beaming bright natural light down from the kitchen above. At your disposition is a range of surfboards, wetsuits for all seasons, body boards and skateboards, for you to practice on and try out. Our equipment caters to surfers and skaters of all levels. The sauna is also located in the basement, in a private room that also houses two electric Fat Bikes, available for guests to rent.
