Vacation rentals in Arcachon
Not far from wine mecca Bordeaux, the costal resort town of Arcachon is a holiday-goer's dream. Apartment rentals in Arcachon will allow you to take advantage of everything this seaside resort has to offer, from activities to beaches to food and more.
Beaches in Arcachon
It's no surprise that most people choosing apartment rentals in Arcachon head for the beach. The beautifully maintained beaches of Arcachon are all sandy beaches on the Atlantic, making them perfect for a wide variety of beach activities, including swimming, snorkeling and even surfing, though being located on a basin, Arcachon does not receive the full brunt of the Atlantic waves. The four main beaches of Arcachon are Plage Pereiere, Plage d'Arcachon, Plage d'Eyrac and Plage des Abatilles. Seek out an apartment with a sea view, and decide for yourself which one is your favorite! You can also observe the basin from afar if you take a boat out to the Ile aux Oiseaux, or Bird Island, just off the coast.
The Winter Town of Arcachon
When the weather doesn't allow for swimming and surfing, Arcachon still begs for visitors with its Winter Town or Ville d'Hiver. The city, built up in the Belle Epoque style with grand villas from the 19th century, is the perfect place to find vacation rentals in Arcachon – try to find a villa with a pool to rent! But the winter town is not the only one that has a special name – the Summer Town, the most developed part of Arcachon, is where you'll find, of course, the beach. Don't neglect the Parc Mauresque, between the Winter and Summer Towns. The Autumn Town includes the lively port to the east, and the Spring Town to the west. With all of these choices, you'll be sure to find the ideal place for accommodations during your holiday in Arcachon. While wandering the various neighborhoods, be sure to check out some of Arcachon's tourist attractions, like the Chapelle des Marins, or sailors' chapel, or the Olympia Theater. Vacation homes in Arcachon are available in any of these neighborhoods, so you can easily pick your favorite and make that your temporary home for your vacation.
Food in Arcachon
Arcachon and the Arcachon basin are famous all over France for the fantastic seafood, so be sure to sample some while you're in town! Mussels, crab and more are all on offer at the local restaurants, where you will learn what “fresh off the boat” truly means. Try the local Arcachon bay oysters for a real treat, or you can even try your hand at fishing your own dinner at la Pointe de l'Aiguillon. Just make surethat your guesthouse or vacation rental in Arcachon has somewhere to cook it up! Seek out a cheap apartment, and with your home-fished, home-cooked dinner, your Arcachon vacation will prove fairly budget friendly. Don't forget that you're just a hop, skip and a jump from Bordeaux, so be sure to splurge on a local bottle for your at-home feast.
