Last week, studio1505 was on holidays in France. Together with the team of SurfBenelux we head down to the perfect place in Labenne Ocean, named Board ‘N Breakfast. Hosted by a lovely Belgium couple, Anton and Ine Desmedt. In 2011 they left their hometown in Belgium to follow their dream. With their biggest passion surfing, they try to surf as much as they can. Each “free” moment, they lay in the ocean to catch some waves!
Because Board ‘N Breakfast is focused on the traveling surfer, you can feel the chillness immediately when you step into this place. In and around the house there are small things that makes a surfer life easier. A board-rack to take care of your boards, a place to clean your wetsuit and a hot shower outside. But the small touches makes it more perfect than it already is. You can use (almost) everything in the house. Skateboards, bikes, guitars, board games and a big tv screen with off course a lot’s of different surf movies. Even the toilet walls are wrapped with stories of different surf magazines of the Benelux. To relax after a long surf session they placed a small pool, a place to play jeu de boules and don’t forget the colorful hammocks and lounge corners to enjoy the lovely weather! The house is sponsored by the brand O’Neill. This means you can find a branded wall paper in all rooms and the couple live in O’Neill clothes.
Holidays are meant to get relaxed and stressed out. At Board ’n Breakfast these are the key words. Each morning they surve a perfect organic breakfast with homemade bread, jams and the best chocolate spread in the world. On request they can also organize dinner. They have a perfect taste for spices and make the best combinations. Their BBQ’s are the best, with a loads of delicious salads and enough meet for the whole town.
Two years ago they also bought the house next to the main house. They turned it into two luscious surf villas. So also “surfer” families can stay here and enjoy the good care of Board ‘N Breakfast.
Each time we enter this place we get more and more inspired! There is so much to do and see. This time we did a small photoshoot for the shoe brand SoftScience. With the brands identity of supreme comfort this is the perfect place! Together with photographer Josephine Leertouwer we put up some different settings in the garden of Board ‘N Breakfast. Below you can find the results.
