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.

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.

A lovely week in Arcachon

5 of 5
We have just returned from a week’s stay in Mme Barbeau’s lovely apartment in Arcachon. The apartment itself was superb, with a really perfect location overlooking the bay. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Many good restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance as is the railway station, shops and supermarket. Mme Barbeau met us on our first day and was very helpful. Arcachon itself is a lovely base for this part of France. We took the train to Bordeaux (quick and easy), a trip to St-Emilion followed by a visit to the Chateau Amiche vineyard (run by an English lady called Lindsey and well worth a visit), and visited the largest sand dune in Europe. I would definitely recommend a visit to Arcachon, and would definitely recommend staying at Mme Barbeau’s apartment. You won’t be disappointed.

Excellent apartment very well equipped and clean

5 of 5
We had a good week after finally finding the apartment. It is equipped with everything you need to make meals and it was a very comfortable bed. It was very useful to have a garage and easy to use with key system.
