Arcachon has a varied range of attractions that make it a popular holiday rental destination with visitors of all ages.

Arcachon town centre dates back just 150 years, so you will not find an abundance of centuries-old buildings around its centre.

Very good

4 of 5
We were very pleased the property was excellent. The only difficulty we had was in trying to locate the property. It would have been good to have a landmark such as the Dauphine Hotel. The equipment was all very good and the host was very helpful.

Lovely area, great beaches

5 of 5
Apartment was as described in a quiet area perfectly placed for the beach and to explore the town. The apartment is well equipped. It is small but when you spend half your time on the beach and the other half of the balcony, it was perfectly fine for us (a couple). The town is attractive with no shortage of eating places, particularly of the famous local oysters and other seafood. We enjoyed just wandering the town, exploring the beautiful houses in the Winter Town. The amazing Dune de Plata and the Oyster Ports are a short trip away. And, of course, there are the beaches. The friendly owner was there to meet us and offer advice. Although there were just the (elderlyish) two of us, this would be a great location for families.
