After acquiring three properties in 2021 to launch its collection, Iconic House is opening the doors to its second property, a historic Basque-Landes residence, completely renovated with the help of interior designer Dorothée Delaye. A villa set on the shores of the Hossegor marine lake, very close to the ocean, designed as a dream Ocean House. 

Iconic House, co-founded by Thibaud Elzière, a French tech entrepreneur, and his brother Robin Michel, intends to shake up the traditional hotel sector by launching the first private collection of exceptional homes for rent, with a level of service worthy of the greatest hotels and a range of local experiences to enjoy during your stay. 

The property will quickly become a dream playground for Dorothée Delaye who will start from scratch to translate the vision of the two owners. His challenge? Give the spaces a unique aesthetic, bring a new vision and give a nice touch of panache to this protected traditional building. 

After more than 6 months of complete rehabilitation of interiors and completely redesigned spaces, the House surprises, amazes, detonates. And imposes with style an asserted singularity. The decoration boldly borrows certain clichés from an adored California. At the Edges of the Lake, we enter the intimacy of an aesthete surfer who does not like to do like the others, a bit like his owners, very involved in the renovation of each of the Houses in their Collection. 

For the project, Dorothée Delaye and her teams will sign, in collaboration with craftsmen, a slew of custom-made pieces such as armchairs, bedside tables or mirrors designed in solid wood with a local cabinetmaker, a huge “Surf” dining table ( one of the centerpieces of the Villa) or even a unique coffee table with bronze legs and pink blown glass inserts. 

The House is ideally located on the west shore of the marine lake with direct access to the mythical White Beach, the ocean and the city center of Hossegor 5 minutes by bike. The address thus seems perfectly calibrated to seduce surfers, golfers and other aesthetes, groups of friends or “cool families” looking for a new hot spot to spend an idyllic holiday in the region. And live with the tides.
