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

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.

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.

It has everything you could ask for, comfortable living area, good sized garden, swimming pool, bikes and beach a minute's walk away. A bakery, fruit and veg store, fishmongers, cave and pizzeria were at the end of the road. There are bicycle piste's to get to town/ the market. It was perfect for our extended family, especially the children. There are children's travel cots/a highchair and toys too. Mr Blanc was very helpful and responded immediately whenever we had a slight issue. Our only gripe was that the gas stove was temperamental, however, he said this would be fixed. Thank you for a lovely stay.

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.
