  • Good complement to the visit of the low area of the beach. The City of Arcachon was a fashionable place for nobility in the NINETEENTH century, and it is noticeable in the average quality of the houses you see over there.

  • Nice winter villas well mentained, good for leisure walks.
  • Dont miss to walk around this place. The Houses (“Villas”) have a particular hybride style. It’s a mixing of different times, places and architectural styles so the result is quite eclectical. Most of this houses were built mainly at the end of the XVIII siecle.
