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.

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.

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.
