Make a holiday rental home or villa in Arcachon, France your home away from home. Arcachon, France

Le Bassin d’Arcachon (Arcachon Bay) is a 100km triangular-shaped stretch of coastline that runs around a small area of the Atlantic Coast. Known as one of France’s key areas for outdoor activities and unspoilt scenery, the bay contains a number of interesting towns and villages, including the principal town of Arcachon itself, which lies at the southern-central point of the ‘triangle’. Arcachon has a varied range of attractions that make it a popular holiday rental destination with visitors of all ages.

Things to do in Arcachon, France

The surrounding coastline and countryside are the main draws of holidays in Arcachon, with young and old often enthralled by the combination of pine tree-clad forests, countryside walks and unspoilt coast.

Arcachon has long been revered as a great spot for sea bathing, with a mild climate meaning that the waters are pleasant to swim in for much of the year. The beaches around this part of the coast are always a big draw, particularly during the height of summer, with sports-lovers going for the surf, families enjoying the clean, supervised beach, and everyone else just soaking up the sun and enjoying the atmosphere.

Arcachon town centre dates back just 150 years, so you will not find an abundance of centuries-old buildings around its centre. Buildings are more functional than architecturally stunning, but house a combination of great shops, cafes, bars and supermarkets. Arcachon is a family-friendly destination, and it is easy to feel at home straight away when traversing the town’s streets and chatting to both locals and tourists. With a good selection of bars and restaurants the nightlife is busy and enjoyable, and there is even a popular casino for those that fancy a flutter.

Also worth a day visit is Pyla sur Mer (7km), which is the home of the largest sand dune in Europe.

Beach quiet and relaxed compared to pier area. Pay car park below between 0900 and 1900. Simply drive 5 minutes walk away and park in a side street for free. Bed comfortable and gave a goods nights sleep. Great food take away only 5 mins walk (Le Charlot) just passed the Casino. Good value compared to alternative rentals, would stay again.

The apartment was clean and well maintained, the kitchen basics were provided, a lovely welcome on arrival. It's very well located, 2 minutes walk from the beach, which is great when staying with children. It's close to the centre of Arcachon, but well away from any noise in the evenings. I would recommend this apartment.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment has 2 upstairs bedrooms in the roof space - good size but anyone over 5.6 will need to duck a bit and steep stairs up not for the infirm or very young (or too inebriated!) There are twin beds off to the side of the living area but these are not screened or private - much cooler when its hot though. Nice little outside space for evening drinks. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of glasses, plates etc. Overall good value for money especially for a group of friends.
