Arcachon the town of the four seasons

An exceptional architecture, lively all year round and bordered by 7 km of family beach … Nothing is missing in Arcachon! Each district diffuses a particular atmosphere, its own charm: elegant XIXth century villas in the winter town; waterfront and jetties in the summer town, busy harbor in the autumn town; the spring town established around the Source des Abatilles and the Péreire beaches. Without forgetting the Moulleau district, a real little village in the town with a wonderful church.

The winter town - not to be missed

This picturesque district with its bourgeois villas in lush greenery is to be discovered on foot or by train; alone, with a guide or audio guide. From the top of the Belvedere, an amazing panorama of the Arcachon Basin awaits you!

Port of biganos

This port is different from the others … Nestled in the heart of a forest, it is very small, intimate, very colorful and invites to a Sunday stroll! My children had a great time discovering the boats docked, throwing a few stones in the water, riding a bike and laughing out loud at their nonsense!

Its typical huts in the shade of large oak trees make it a favorite place for painters, photographers and wilderness lovers.

Port of the hume

Fueled by the Landes Canal which flows into the estey of Hume, the port of Hume saw the establishment of a few sailors’ huts in the second half of the 19th century.

Today, the port of Hume, with its beautiful and large beach bordered by tamarisks nearby, is a resort and promenade with a harmonious setting, much appreciated.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux, in the middle of the wine region, is a port city located on the Garonne, in the southwest of France. It is famous for the Gothic cathedral of Saint-André, its mansions built in the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as its art museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts of Bordeaux. The public gardens follow the curves of the quays that run along the river. The Place de la Bourse, in the center of which stands the fountain of the Three Graces, is reflected in the reflecting pool.

Saint Emilion

In the middle of the country of Libournais, in a region of wine hills, this medieval city is camped on a limestone eminence and is located at the crossroads of Bordeaux, Saintonge and Périgord.

The medieval city (and its “jurisdiction”) has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1999.

Blaye citadel
