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.

Arcachon delight

4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay ay the house. It was a little difficult to find however and the directions were not very clear. It was in a quiet street and very close to the beach. We would have rented bikes but did not want then for the whole week so opted to walk and use the car. It was a 10/15 minute walk to the nearest boulangerie which we enjoyed most mornings.Our host was very welcoming and the standard of the accommodation was excellent. Our 3 children who ranged from 11 to 17 had more than enough space in the bunk beds and on the sofa bed in the lounge. The kitchen was newly refurbished and finished to a high standard. It was useful to have a dishwasher and a large family kitchen table. We used the new washing machine and dryer which were also brand new. We would stay there again and recommend it to friends.

Very good

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.
