The pool was wonderfully warm and we had nice weather the entire duration of our stay - with the beach nearby, clubs, water sports and shops we were spoilt for choice with things to do! We had an unforgettable experience staying here

The appartment was well equipped and furnished having been completely re-furbished 3 years ago. The second bedroom/cabine was really only suitable for children as it had bunk beds and was an internal room. This did not worry us as there were only the 2 of us. Shops, restaurants, banks etc and the start of the mile long promenade into Arcachon centre are 10-15mins walk away which meant that the appartment was quiet with easy parking and a community feeling. There is an "Oyster Shack" 50 yds away where one can sample local shellfish at a very reasonable price."
