Tucked away on the southern shoreline of Arcachon Bay, Maison Du Lagon is a cosy French villa that doesn’t shirk on beauty. Suitable for up to eight guests, this holiday home has direct access to a lagoon and boasts views across the bay. 

These views are on display from the moment you walk into the open living and dining area thanks to panoramic windows that bring natural light streaming into the house. The warm ambience provided by chic wooden furnishings makes this a welcoming space for a morning coffee or to relax in the sofa nook after a long day of adventures. 

The open-plan kitchen, equipped with all the modern amenities, is the perfect place for you to embrace get cooking and embrace the culinary flavours of the Gironde region. No matter what's on the menu, this comfy and open space is the buzzing hub of the house. This central floor also contains a bedroom with attached dressing room and a queen-sized bed. 

On the lower ground floor you’ll find another bedroom with double bed, and a large playroom ideally suited to kids. On the upper floor there are two further rooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two singles. There’s also a shower and separate WC. 

Despite the cosiness of this home, it is really in the outdoor spaces that it comes into its own. Located in a tranquil cul-de-sac with direct access to the lagoon, Maison Du Lagon boasts two balconies (north and south facing) that offer the perfect setting for al fresco dining. On the sun-soaked south side of the villa you can also find the swimming pool and garden terrace, a spot you’ll no doubt spend a lot of time enjoying. 

Given the villa’s proximity to the lagoon, bay, lush pine forests and nearby beaches, there is no shortage of outdoor adventures on offer, in addition to local markets and cultural attractions. But in the comfort of Maison Du Lagon you’ll have a front-row seat to observe the changing colours of the landscape and the renowned wildlife, particularly birds, which flock to the area like holidaymakers.

In the local town you can enjoy a morning coffee and pastry to set you up for exploring the markets and restaurants. The area is renowned for its oyster production and here you can indulge in the local delicacies. Venturing a little further to Arcachon, you'll find even more stunning beaches, vibrant promenades and the iconic Dune du Pilat. 

Just 55km away is the captivating Bordeaux, situated along the Garonne River, with its elegant 18th-century architecture, fine wines, and rich cultural tapestry including museums, vibrant landmarks and a vibrant culinary scene.

The Bassin d’Arcachon, or Arcachon Bay, is a large Atlantic-fed bay west of Bordeaux with an inlet between the tip of the Cap Ferret promontory in the west and the famous resort town of Arcachon to the east. Various towns, fishing ports and holiday resorts dot the bay’s coastline, including Lanton, where you’ll find the Aiguilles Vertes golf club, and the holiday resort of Andernos-les-Bains where a long pier and promenade are best enjoyed at high tide when the bay sidles right up to the beach. 

Maison Du Lagon is located in Gujan-Mestras on the south side of the bay and beside Arcachon. In Gujan-Mestras itself you’ll find supermarkets, restaurants (don’t miss out on the acclaimed oyster bars), shops, beaches, a golf course, a museum and various scenic walks along the bay and surrounds. 

A short drive from the villa will bring you to Le Teich and its renowned ornithological reserve, a magical spot for birdwatchers to see a wide range of bird species in their natural environment. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars!

In neighbouring Arcachon begins the longest, sandiest stretch of coastline in Europe, running 200 kilometres southwards to Biarritz. It's worth noting that cars cannot be taken on the ferry from Cap Ferrat to Arcachon, but bikes can. Once you're there, check out the Dune de Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune whose shifting summit provides panoramic views across to Cap Ferret.

Best Suited For: All Ages

Around Arcachon Bay, and especially toward Arcachon itself, there are a litany of activities for kids. Notably there’s the amusement parks of Aqualand Bassin d’Arcachon and Parc de la Coccinelle, the former is a waterpark, the latter a more ride-based theme park, both a great day out. 

Arcachon’s Atlantic coastline is the longest stretch of sandy beach in Europe, making it an ideal place to play and explore. Make sure to check out the Dune de Pilat, Europe’s highest sand dune and a great vantage point to see across to Cap Ferrat, down the coast toward Biarritz, and across in the direction of the villa along the bay.
