Cap Ferret, France
"About an hour's drive from Bordeaux, Cap Ferret is great for a day-trip, long weekend or extended break. Loads of celebrities go here but it’s also very local, plus the Dune de Pyla sand dunes are incredible to see. To get an idea of the scenery, watch the movie Les Petits Mouchoirs (Little Liars) – it's absolutely brilliant and perfectly shows you the area.
An amazing restaurant to go to in Cap Ferret is Chez Hortense. A very famous spot, it has a beautiful outlook across Arcachon Bay to the Dune de Pyla. The area supplies the whole of France with its produce from the oyster farms and you can sample them at Chez Hortense. The Moules et Frites (mussels and fries) is another popular French dish and is definitely worth ordering." – Alissa Pittman, art director
