“A great place to really relax”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We got this place from the Alastair Sawday travel website which has rarely if ever let us down. Cap Cabane is 12/13 pod-like wooden structures nestled amongst this pine forest (the largest in Europe). Philippe and staff were very welcoming, showed us up to our cabin and explained the compost toilet facilities. They serve dinner every night if you want it (2 courses and wine) otherwise you can cook in the communal kitchen and eat alongside the 'restaurant' diners on a shaded wooden terrace near the pool. This place is idyllic. You are surrounded by trees and sky and not It much else except other families who were all friendly and sharing. The cabins feature comfortable beds, warm blankets if needed and a heater. There are also USB charging points too. One floor down is a sort of salon with chairs and hammocks and then at the bottom the bathroom with toilet and sink. A short walk away are conventional showers and toilets. Each pod has its own shower cubicle where you can leave your toiletries and towels. Back in the cabin, the plastic clear roof allows you to look at the stars at night but bring an eye mask if you're sensitive to light as the shade you can pull over the roof isn't that effective come sunrise. We were there during a meteor shower which was amazing at night. It's also very quiet at night/ early morning. You can just hear the road though. But a great place to catch up on sleep.

In the morning if you want, for a cost, they'll deliver a delicious breakfast to your door - croissants, pain au chocolat, lovely baguettes, butter jams, hot drinks and fresh juice. More than we could eat. Useful though to keep for a mid morning snack. You can hire bikes, jog or walk round the forest or head up to the village of Captieux which has a mini mart and cafes just a kilometre away. Check out the weekly market at Bazas (20 mins drive I think) - really really good - for fresh food and some incredible Bazas beef which it is most famous for. It's a bit pricey but full of flavour.
The small natural pool with fish will help to cool you off and provides entertainment for curious kids and each day there is usually some sort of event - yoga, a night walk, etc.
The only slight negative was the size of the kitchen, even with 3 fridges and two cookers did feel rather crowded at times when you have half a dozen families trying to cook at the same time. It's not a big issue though. Overall we had a fantastic time here and would definitely recommend.
