This house is in danger ! It’s located near “la Dune du Pilat” and one day, the sand dune will bury it with its natural progression. See here the progression of the dune :

I found an article in the Illustration newspaper, dating from 1936. It told a story about a house that became buried under the sand of the dune in less than 10 years. Read here the article.


The house will be buried in 20 years.

The house’s shutters were closed and I did not see anybody but logs could be seen and there was some sort of swing, suggesting that the place was inhabited. I left a note under the door to warn them about the future disaster.
