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.

The surroundings are stunning and the villa immaculate, with everything that you could possibly need. Everybody loved the fact that it was so close to the beach and Le Moulleau, and the villa has fantastic communal space for everyone to enjoy. I was also so well looked after throughout the booking of this villa, the owner couldn't do enough, she is a wonderful woman with great taste! I would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone wanting to have a special stay in a beautiful part of the world. Thank-you so much! Claire.

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.
