The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Aquitaine is probably of one the nicest area in France, not too warm, not too busy but so relaxing. Its wine are of course very famous as is Bordeaux, now a world renowned city (UNESCO site). The Aquitaine Atlantic coast is splendid but if you prefer mountains, go south and discover the beautiful Pyrenees, the natural border with Spain
La Teste de Buch is probably the best located city on the Bassin d'Arcachon to enjoy all the activities the area offers. You will of course love the beautiful uncrowded beaches. There are plenty of them, each suited for your tastes : the ones inside the bay with always still waters and a bit warmer, ideal for children : La Hume Beach (just 5 minutes from the home) is the locals' preferred beach with a nice playground, picnic tables, gym training, Arcachon Beaches, Pereire Beach (with its beautiful sandbar where you can walk safely at low tide), Le Moulleau Beach famous for its nice fishing pier and excellent ice creams
If you prefer waves go a bit further south to Petit Nice Beach and don't forget your surf board !
Adjacent to la Teste de Buch is the famous Arcachon city which boast nice shopping streets, beach promenades and beautiful old villas. On the east side of La Teste is Gujan Mestras, a town famous for its 7 harbors and oyster farms.
La Teste also boast the most visited nature place in France, la dune du Pyla. This dune is the highest in Europe and offfers fantastic views on the bay and the Landes forest.
The Arcachon bay is a bird sanctuary and nature lovers will love to visit the Nature Park of le Teich, just 10 kilometers east of La Teste.
If you like walking just go out of the home and head for the pine forest within 2 minutes walking distance of the home or head for the Parc de la Cheneraie along the nearby canal.
Take time to discover the beautiful Cap Ferret, west of La Teste. Its fishermen's villages are amongst the most typical in the area. You can go there by boat or car.
If you love walking or biking a great treat is taking the 80 km path along the bay (2 days preferable) : you will be on your own in the heart of our beautiful nature.
Your children will love the fun parks located just 5 minutes from your home : Kid Parc, La Cocinnelle , Aqualand, Crazy Golf and Tree climbing.
Other nearby activities include sailing, kayaking, parasailing, boating, fishing, parachuting, flying, gliding, kite surf, horse riding, golf, casino, bowling, tennis and much more.
If you are fed up with the Atlantic head 10 km south and enjoy a great day on the shores of Cazaux Lake, one of the largest in France and so family friendly with warm and shallow waters.
Within one hour driving time from La Teste is the beautiful city of Bordeaux which is a must see for art lovers. Of course Wine Chateaux of Medoc and Saint Emilion are also very close but be safe on the way back !
If you have time drive south to Pays Basque (about 1 hour and 45 minutes) and the Pyrenees it's so beautiful
We can arrange a lot of nice activities before you arrive : a flying tour over the bay, visit of the oyster field, bike rentals, fishing trip, kayak trips...etc Don't hesitate to ask we will do our best to provide you with the best and most affordable proposals.
