Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Bassin d’Arcachon, Gironde, France your home away from home

The 100km stretch of coastline running from the Cap Ferrat to Arcachon on Aquitaine’s Atlantic coast is a haven of activity and adventure in southern France. Famous for its magnificent range of glorious beaches, world class oysters and rich forest landscapes, anyone who loves sport or the great outdoors, a Bassin d’Arcachon holiday rental offers a perfect getaway in the south of France. The wonderfully laid-back atmosphere and delightfully unspoilt nature of Bassin d’Arcachon makes it impossible not to completely relax during a Bassin d’Arcachon holiday.

Things to do in Bassin d’Arcachon, France

It is hard to know where to start with a guide to Bassin d’Arcachon. The coastline is an absolute delight to explore, whether you are looking for a quiet, family Bassin d’Arcachon beach where children can play and swim or one of the world class surfing beaches in Bassin d’Arcachon where Atlantic rollers crash against the shore creating surfing conditions that pose a challenge to every level of surfer. Along the coast, almost every water sport can be enjoyed, and although the region is best known for its surfing credentials, sailing, canoeing and wind surfing holidays also thrive from self catering Bassin d’Arcachon properties.

The nature of the Bassin d’Arcachon attracts nature lovers, and especially bird lovers to Bassin d’Arcachon accommodation from around Europe. There are a huge range of bird species that call Bassin d’Arcachon home, and the bird watching reserves of Ile aux Oiseaux and Parc Ornotholiqique du Teich are especially good places to walk and relax, accessible by boat from the Bassin d’Arcachon mainland.

If you manage to drag yourself away from Bassin d’Arcachon’s beaches for just a few hours, there are a great range of golf courses to play in the area. Nestled among the region’s lush vineyards (tours and wine tasting sessions are easily available from a Bassin d’Arcachon property) are some of southern France’s finest golf courses, including the Arcachon International Golf Course and the Gujan Mestras Golf Course, which may be familiar to some as host to European PGA Tour competitions.

Places to visit on holiday in Bassin d’Arcachon, France

The resort of Pyla sur Mer is a magnificent beach resort, first made famous for the nearby Dune of Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune which stands a staggering 105m high. Pyla sur Mer is also an excellent beach resort in its own right though, with a stunning beach and more water sports facilities than you could possibly enjoy from a single holiday in Bassin d’Arcachon accommodation.

The beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, and if you would like to explore the forested countryside that backs the Bassin d’Arcachon on foot, by bicycle or from the saddle, a holiday rental in Andernos les Bains is the perfect base.

The town of Arcachon itself is a delightful, year round destination on one of the best beaches in Bassin d’Arcachon. The beaches are beautiful, and covered in soft sand, backed by a fantastic promenade, which houses a great range of shops and restaurants.

a lovely break by the sea

5 of 5
excellent location - in town and on the beach. It is very quiet and comfortable. The owner welcomed us and came to say goodbye. All basic necessities are included in the kitchen and bathroom. Can't fault it .

Stunning villa in a beautiful location

5 of 5
I hired this villa for my friends and family over my wedding in Arcachon and I couldn't think of a more perfect place to get ready the morning of my wedding. The surroundings are stunning and the villa immaculate, with everything that you could possibly need. Everybody loved the fact that it was so close to the beach and Le Moulleau, and the villa has fantastic communal space for everyone to enjoy. I was also so well looked after throughout the booking of this villa, the owner couldn't do enough, she is a wonderful woman with great taste! I would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone wanting to have a special stay in a beautiful part of the world. Thank-you so much! Claire.
