A peaceful break for a moment of unique rest.

His goal is to give back all its charm to his cabin, and decorate it with care. To do this, she called on local artists and craftsmen, who know the codes of the Basin. With their support, Agnès GUIOT wanted to create unique pieces, working with oak wood. This wood reigns supreme in the Cabane, as a timeless nod to the wild nature of Cape Ferret. She also chose to decorate it with designer objects, mixing materials, symbols and stories. Its credo, create a space out of time, intimate and precious for an escape to the heart of nature.

Crafts in Gironde at the service of interior decoration

To decorate houses or establishments such as hotels, owners regularly use interior decorators. Thanks to the design of the spaces and the choice of elements, it is easy to give an atmosphere to a room. On Bordeaux or on the Arcachon Basin, it is a phenomenon that is regularly found. Indeed, the decoration gives a stamp to a place, and marks its visitors. In high-end establishments, such as the Yndo Hotel, the décor is unique to each room. This allows you to vary the atmospheres, and to discover, during its visits, all the richness of the establishment.

Local craftsmen are often used to create unique pieces. Elements made with local materials, to give the terroir touch to the decoration. This is why we often find decorative elements made of driftwood, present on the ocean beaches. Also very reputable and present on the region, wine. Every year, it attracts many wine-tourists who want to discover the estates and taste great wines. It is for this reason that the interior decoration around the wine is found in many establishments. The crates used to transport the bottles of wine become decorative elements or are used for other purposes. The bottles with beautiful labels also allow to create a neat and prestigious decoration, a nod to the region.

Apart from that, the beauty of the city and its gradual transformation appeals. While the city is currently quiet and deserted, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is usually very much alive. Cafes and restaurants are for some reputable, like the large reputable establishments present in the city. The Grand Maison Bernard Magrez, the Silver Press or LA Table d’Hôtes are star-studded tables for tourists.

During their stay in Bordeaux, tourists enjoy being well located. The city centre is home to well-known establishments, including the Yndo Hotel. It is ideally located in the Golden Triangle, at the crossroads of Tourny’s Alleys, Gambetta Square and Stewardship Courses. Staying in a prestigious hotel, guests are looking for an experience. An environment that is both calm and intimate, where they can have a pleasant time. A welcoming and comfortable place, where they won’t need to worry about anything. For those customers for whom standing is important, no detail should be left to chance. That’s why renowned designers bring their touch, to add a touch to the atmosphere of an establishment.
