The Bay of Arcachon

A day by the sea

Welcome in our small paradise: the BASSIN D’ARCACHON.

A beautiful place to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and some of its delicacies like oysters. But if the Bassin is very gourmand, it’s also full of history with remarkable architecture of ARCACHON with its “winter town” and its “summer town”.

Site of the famous DUNE DU PILAT, a visit of this natural wonder, highest sand dune in Europe with more than 100 meters high, is a must.

The oysters produced locally are among the best ones in France, and whether it is through a visit to a production farm and/or a lunch by the sea, this is a must for every gourmet.
