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 lovely stay in Pyla sur Mer

4 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Pyla sur mer and the studio appartment was perfect. It was very comfortable with everything we needed( two of us) . It was quiet and close to the beach, shops, restaurants and buses. Daniel and his wife were very helpful and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay.

Excellent spacious villa in lovely setting

5 of 5
The villa at Pyla is great for a larger party of guests. We went in Oct and our party consisted of 2 couples and a friend and there were still loads of beds to spare, each room has its own toilet and shower. The villa has everything you might want, a swimming pool which is always warm enough to swim in, a sauna and a steam room, table tennis, bar football and a movie room. There are table games, dvds, high speed internet and excellent bluetooth speakers so take your iPad. The kitchen has all the appliances and utensils/crockery you might need and a large indoor dining area and separate sitting area with a large open fire although it was warm enough that we didn't need to use the heating or fire. There are laundry facilities downstairs and although we didn't need them there are lots of toys for children,pool toys/floats, high chairs etc downstairs if needed Dealing with the owners and concierge was easy and requests were always responded to quickly, the concierge even printed additional boarding passes for us at very short notice. When we arrived there was a complimentary bottle of champagne in the fridge a really nice touch. The villa has a great decking area which has seating for 12 and additional loungers and sun seats, this area looks out to the forest and you are not overlooked when using the pool or sitting out. There is also a spacious upstairs balcony to use. The downstairs area has a movie room, bedroom, and shower so would be perfect for older teenagers who wanted their own space. You will need a car as the nearest shops/sights/beaches are between 4-8 km away and the bus routes are not too close and fairly complicated to work out however the villa was so lovely we were happy to go out visiting the area during the day by car and relax at the villa in the evening. It is pretty difficult to rely on taxis if you want to go out in the evening unless your french is good, and be warned they are also much more expensive than back home, if you do book agree a price first!. We visited arcachon, cap ferret, the lake at cazaux and the pyla dune all really worth a visit. We also visited the golf club restaurant for sunday lunch which was very friendly and is a fairly short stroll away The owners were happy for us to pay the rental through home and away, we also paid our deposit through the site and it was returned by the owner via bank transfer. We really enjoyed this holiday it was a stunning place to stay and I would happily recommend it
