The shop offers imagery in several forms (posters, frames, etc.), books, albums on the Basin, wooden objects and candles with maritime pine essential oils. These are local products (no further than Bordeaux) and handmade.

What do the Dune and running a restaurant on the site mean to you?

Julie NOUGUEYREAU, manager and her daughter, Paloma FAJARNES. “ We're from the region so it's symbolic. We have always known the Dune. If someone had told me several years ago that I would be running a store here, I certainly would not have believed it. We are very happy to be in this setting.

Your best memory here?

I would say the first time I brought my kids. It was in winter, of course. We only came at this time before. For us, the memories here are with the down jacket. It was important to introduce them to this place, which they immediately appreciated.

Any visiting advice?

We love the sunset. But now I would say that the most pleasant thing is to come in the morning. It's quiet, there are almost no people, almost no footprints. Being the first of the day isn't bad. We recommend it to visitors from elsewhere.

How do you promote the site?

We have questions about the region, boat trips, the Banc d'Arguin. The posters that we sell and which represent places in the Basin raise these kinds of questions. There are a lot of exchanges and it's very practical to be local.

What made you want to work on this site?

We also have a restaurant in the center of Arcachon and we know shops and traders on the market. And we said to ourselves: this kind of thing, original and quality objects, must be offered on a site like the Dune. In addition, we work with suppliers encountered on the market, for example. We are happy to offer these products here, quality products.

A word to describe the Dune?

Exceptional. We never tire. Plus, every climb is different, up there it's never the same. »
