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.

Andernos les Bains lies in a beautifully natural part of Bassin d’Arcachon. 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.

Weather in Bassin d’Arcachon, France

The weather in Bassin d’Arcachon is fantastic. The summer months are blissfully hot, with temperatures soaring into the mid 30’s (°C) daily in June, July and August, which make Bassin d’Arcachon’s beaches an irresistible asset. Even during the winter, golf and outdoor adventure holidays thrive, as temperatures are rarely below 15°C.

Superb Villa!

5 of 5
First class Villa. A real home from home. Spotlessly clean on arrival. Everything was well appointed inside & out. Perfect swimming pool for young children due to the wide shallow stepped area. Lovely quiet location, but still easy to access the whole Cap area. We would certainly stay again.

Well located and surprisingly spacious

5 of 5
Quiet location, nice view from balcony. Only 2 mins from beach, 10 mins from center. Beach quiet and relaxed compared to pier area. Pay car park below between 0900 and 1900. Simply drive 5 minutes walk away and park in a side street for free. Bed comfortable and gave a goods nights sleep. Great food take away only 5 mins walk (Le Charlot) just passed the Casino. Good value compared to alternative rentals, would stay again.

Perfect Villa for a wonderful family holidsy

5 of 5
The villa was exactly as shown in photos, beautifully clean and well equipped plus the beds are very comfortable! We were 4 adults and 2 children and we all loved it. The heated pool was absolutely lovely. The covered outside dining and seating area is perfect for a bit of shade. The owners greated us on arrival , showed us around and left us to our holiday. We had a fault with the electric garage door which was fixed the same day. The village of Lege is a short cycle ride away and there are lots of places to visit and perfect beaches only a 15 minute drive (or slightly longer cycle) . Overall a great holiday!
