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.
Très beau secteur de la ville, où les bâtisses au fort caractère sont nombreuses. Dépaysant, balade agréablement surprenante. more »Very nice area of the city, where the buildings with strong character are numerous. Exotic, pleasant stroll.
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.
