Enchantment by the unique beach of Arcachon and climb with us the Dune of Pilat, to enjoy an incredible view.


Communicating with the Ocean by a gully and fed in fresh water by the Leyre, a small river of the Landes, the Bay pr ‘Bassin"‘ of Arcachon is a small inland sea subject to tides and constantly evolving under the action of wind and currents. A world apart where the winters are mild and the summers never hot.   We propose to radiate to the day or several days around the Bassin. From the dune du Pilat to the Pointe du Cap ferret, this bay reveals a wide range of landscapes, colours and perfumes.  Next to the lively life of the seaside resorts, you will discover the more peaceful, intimate and laborious of the oyster villages and picturesque small ports. You walk along large sandy beaches, huge Oyster parks and cross pine forests. 

In the heart of the pool where the water and the earth are no longer divided, you will remain fascinated by the flora and fauna of this secret world of the ‘pressalés’ and marshes, a paradise of millions of birds that have appropriated the strike, the Islands and the sandbanks.
