Arcachon is an hour away from Bordeaux. It is situated in the Bassin d'Arcachon and so protected from the Atlantic winds. It is a familiar place to anyone who likes oysters but Arcachon is of course also a big holiday resort for the French.
The town itself has around 12 000 inhabitants and probably a lot more in the summer. Its big attraction is the long, beautiful and sandy coast and all the seafood restaurants. Arcachon is famous for its oysters and mussels but a lot of fish is also caught in the waters outside its coast.
If you get tired of the beach you can have a pleasant walk through la Ville d'hiver (the Winter Town) with its many grand and fanciful villas, built around 100 years ago.
