We are situated in the south beach part of the town. The house is very close by foot to the village shops and restaurants and just opposite the school. We are 200m from the beach access at the south beach parking and 300m from a peaceful pine forest. Biscarrosse is a renowed surf beach and is on a stunning coastline of golden sands and dunes that stretches 200km know as the Cote d'Argent.
Sunsets are amazing here and there is no better place than sitting on the dune watching the sun go down. In summer, we recommend the Hotel, La Playa and Siesta restaurant bars for sundowners and food. They have prime spots on the beach and fantastic view of the sunset. All walking distance.
Fruit & Veg shop is next to the tabac and opposite L'Archipel restaurant & bar on Avenue de la plage. 2 minutes walk from the house.
Boulangerie is on Boulevard d'Arcachon next to the mini market and coffee shop, 3 minute walk from the house.
Fresh fish and butchers is also walking distance.
Tourist office is great and very useful and located in the main square, Place Dafau, next to the Post Office.
Laundrette is next to the Pharmacy and Spar supermarket short walk from the house on Avenue de la Plage.
We can advise you on best places for surf board and bike hire and surf schools.
Arriving by car is easiest or by rail and bus to Arcachon via Bordeaux St Jean.
Once you are here you do not need a car. The boulangerie, cafes, shops and restaurants are a short walk away from the house.
There is free street parking in front of the house. Sunny summer afternoon scan be tricky to get a space right outside but most of the times it is no problem.
There are numerous DRIVVY cars in Bisca for rent and even one on the same street.
Car share rides with BlaBlaCar offer rides to Arcachon, Bordeaux and other destinations as many people commute out of the town daily.
We have two spare bikes for guests that can be used for small trips around the beach to get bread or check the surf! You are responsible to make sure that is in good order before you take it and that is in good order when it comes back.
