La Co(o)rniche, Pyla-Sur-Mer

La Co(o)rniche, renovated by Philippe Starck in 2010, is an extraordinary place. A key landmark in the Pilat-Plage district, a vantage point over the Arcachon basin and backing onto the highest dune in Europe, it is suspended between sea and sky, nestling between sand and pines. This former 1930s hunting lodge in the heart of a preserved site, evokes the Golden Age and the invention of the Côte d’Argent.

“One of the strongest, most beautiful, most poetic, most surreal, and most powerful place in nature.” Ph.S
