Things to do in Bassin d’Arcachon, France

It is hard to know where to start with a guide to Bassin d’Arcachon.

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          The owner was most helpful. The house was delightful, beautifully clean, equipped and tastefully decorated. There was a wonderful garden, with covered veranda facing the afternoon and evening sun to the west. The Atlantic beach is 500m away, the Bassin beach closer, maybe 300m. Both are excellent. There is a superb market 400m away, an easy walk, but not so close that customers are parked outside the house. There are a multitude of decent restaurants within easy walking distance. We had a most pleasant and comfortable stay, and found the accommodation excellent.

                                                          This villa is located in a very good quiet and relaxing location. Details and pictures provided were accurate and on arrival it looked as we expected. We would certainly visit again and would recommend the villa and surrounding area to friends and family. In particular we were impressed with the customer service, feeling very welcomed and catered for.

                                                          We had a lovely stay with a family of 5 (kids aged 3-16), great location, perfect property - clean and well looked after. The whole stay was managed extremely well. We were welcomed and given lots of local tips. The children loved the pool, which had a safety cover so they could use the garden without supervision when it was closed. Peaceful, relaxing setting, near some great beaches and villages. All in all, a perfect holiday and we hope to come back again
