Make a holiday rental home or gite in Pyla sur Mer, France your home away from home

Pyla sur Mer is a traditional beach resort, located among the glorious beach havens in the Bassin d’Arcachon in Aquitaine, and famous not only for its charming atmosphere and magnificent beach, but also for the mouth watering oysters farmed in the area. The Dune of Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune, is a major attraction in the area, but whatever first attracts you to a self catering Pyla sur Mer holiday rental, you are sure to be seduced by the region and end up returning year after year.

Things to do in Pyla sur Mer, France

Pyla sur Mer lies at the boundary between the huge forest of La Teste-de-Buch, an outdoor activity and nature haven and the glorious golden beaches of the Bassin d’Arcachon, providing visitors with the best of both worlds. Upon your arrival at your Pyla sur Mer holiday property, a trip to the summit of the huge Dune of Pilat, which stands some 105 metres high, is the perfect way to discover your surroundings. From the summit, you are blessed with phenomenal views along the coastline and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as over the dark tree tops of the forest. The climb is strenuous, but the reward from the top is well worth it, as is the descent.

There is a great choice of beaches from a holiday rental villa in Pyla sur Mer, with the wonderful swimming and sunbathing beaches of Basin d’Arcachon and the ocean beaches of Petit-Nice, La Lagune and La Salie all within easy reach of a Pyla sur Mer beach villa. These ocean beaches are fantastic for water sports, with rolling waves perfect for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing, especially if you have a little experience under your belt.

The vast forest of La Teste-de-Buch, which totally surrounds the village, is crossed with a maze of walking, riding and cycling trails, the vast majority of which are accessible directly from a Pyla sur Mer villa. Walking in La Teste-de-Buch is a wonderful experience, as the sunlight breaks through the canopy creating a magical world beneath the trees, well out of the blistering summer heat. There are numerous little lakes which suddenly emerge into sight as well, perfect for a refreshing dip.

A great base to enjoy the area, especially the beaches

4 of 5
The property was clean and well furnished. The owner and our contact was friendly and responsive. The location was quiet. We had a great time, relaxed and refreshed, spending many days on the beach, which was only 300 metres away. The town nearby was vibrant and interesting, the ice cream was excellent.

Amazing property and lovely people

5 of 5
The villa is absolutely stunning and homely. It had everything and more that we needed and the setting for a holiday to relax and have fun with the family was just perfect. Great location with lots to do on your doorstep. Communication was really good and Olivier was extremely helpful. We hope to come back! Thank you.
