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.

The gentleman handing us the keys was very polite and made us feel very welcome. The balcony was great particularly on Bastille Night 14th July when we were able to watch the fireworks. The apartment is situated within 5 minutes walking distance of the beach, shops, restaurants etc. We had looked at other areas to stay in near Arcachon but were delighted we chose this location as we could walk everywhere. The highlight of the trip was the cycle to Dune de Pilat which was spectacular. I'd highly recommend this apartment and certainly provided us with a most enjoyable holiday.

Well appointed with everything you will need for a short or long term stay - including some tv channels in English which is quite rare from our experience in France!! Conveniently located it is only a short walk to the local daily and covered markets and also a good selection of cafes and restaurants. The shopping is also of a high quality and within easy walking distance. There are lots of interesting places to visit in and around Arcachon including local ferry boat trips, good golf courses and excellent cycleways. Not forgetting the local oyster farming industry! We have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous, safe and secure apartment which is ideal for a couple or three people. A huge thank you to the owners Francine and Jack who are very helpful and friendly. Inoubliable et tres agreable! Maggie & Harry, Nelson, New Zealand.
