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.

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.

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.

In particular we were impressed with the customer service, feeling very welcomed and catered for.

The apartment is in a beautifully quiet residential area and only a short walk to the beach and also the sand dunes are in walking distance of the property. The owners are both very friendly, charming and willing to help at all times. We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in this area. The area is beautiful, the beaches are sandy and well maintained. The sand dunes are amazing walking to the top is good exercise on the legs but well worth it. We would just like thank Claude & Muriel for their wonderful hospitality and making our stay in Pyla Sur Mer very enjoyable.

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
