A popular beach resort town on the Atlantic coast, Arcachon offers you fine, sandy beaches and a particularly mild climate said to be favorable to people suffering from pulmonary diseases.
Take a break from Arcachon with a short trip to Le Phare du Cap Ferret in Cap-Ferret, about 1:25 hours away. Spend the 15th (Mon) among the memorable landscape of Dune du Pilat. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Réserve Ornithologique du Teich, take a leisurely stroll along Thiers Jetty, contemplate the long history of La ville d'Hiver, and get in on the family fun at Parc de la Coccinelle.
