Located in a beautiful residential neighborhood just a block away from the beach, this is a great place to have a relaxing vacation in one of the most desirable beach destinations of France. It is a short drive (5 minutes) to central Arcachon, but you will probably prefer to remain in Le Moulleau (the distinctive neighborhood where the house is located). Le Moulleau has wonderful restaurants, cafes, gellaterias, patisseries, and fishmongers, but it is much less crowded and busy than Arcachon. From its pier, you can easily take a boat ride across the bay to Cap Ferret or just to get a magnificent view of the nearby Dune du Pilat. The house itself is spacious, comfortable, and cool. The kitchen is remarkably well equipped for those who like to cook, and the terrace (with a retractable marquee) is so delightful that you might be tempted to spend your afternoons relaxing on the chaise longue rather than making the 2-minute walk to the nearby beach! If you read French, no need to take a book – the house also features a large, diverse library. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Surprise. The location is wonderful - steps from the very cute town of Pyla-Sur-Mer, with its quaint shops and restaurants, and only a 5-minute walk to beautiful beaches. It's also a short drive from La Dune du Pilat which is absolutely spectacular. The house itself has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and really nice indoor and outdoor living areas. It's the perfect place for a large group (we were two families of 4 and 5 people) and it suited us perfectly. All in all, I highly recommend this house for a beach getaway.
