    The bed is for two men very tiny and it is very creaky. It was very annoying and decrease the quality of sleep.

    No off street parking; quite hard to find free parking near the property. The beds were pretty hard and therefore not really comfortable. Could have done with some extra pillows (did not ask).

    Small studio apartment in very central location. Basic amenities provided (like washing up liquid and salt). Gated and therefore quite safe. Friendly staff. Enough pots and pans if you want to cook yourself. Steps from the centre and the beach.

    It was a little tricky to find parking but that is no one's fault as it's a busy area. Bedding and towels were clean but could do with replacing.

    Friendly welcome, no fuss, great location. Very quiet and relaxing and close to beach and shops.

    Excellent choice for our stay in Arcachon. If we went back some day, we'd definetely book this place again. The owner is so nice and friendly. Well-equipped kitchen. You can enjoy ur meal outside. Wifi worked well. Location is perfect. Monoprix and restaurants around the corner. The beach 5min away on foot. Free public parking and easy to come by car. Thank you again! We are so happy about our stay and have so good memories.

    What a wonderful place to stay. We had three rooms, four with the bathroom! The decor is quaint and it has a real seaside feel. Great location close to the beach, restaurants, shops the the beautiful houses of Arcachon. Host was very welcoming and helpful. Great clothes washing and drying. Quiet.

    Our apartment was closest to the road outside which is busy from 6am with refuse trucks and street cleaners. The evening rush hour meant it was noisy to sit outside the apartment.

    The apartment was very well decorated and equipped. It was very clean. The manager was always available at the times he said he would be.

    Room very small. Ok for single use but dreadful if shared. What do you do with your beach staff? Don't like sink in the bedroom, especially if mounted on wooden platform. Not very hygenic.

    Great breakfast, very nice staff. Very well maintained property. Liked the fact that I could lock my cycle in a shed in the back yard. This is Arcachon at the end of the high season - great place to spend a night or two and i reckon value for money. Too cramped for more?

    If you can't live without your e-device you may need to find somewhere else. The WIFI is the ultimate in frustration with more characters in the password than the Bible. After you have unsuccessfully entered it 3 times the message will start to sink in - WIFI is available in theory only. Only other negative thought is that 4.00 pm is a bit late for check-in, 3.00 pm would be preferable

    Excellent location - short walk to esplanade, shops, supermarket, restaurants and shops. Also on the edge of the paid parking zone, so you should be able to find free parking. Small, self- catering apartment but clean with good facilities, including a small balcony. Would definitely recommend.

    Parking was a problem. Although eventually(9.0p.m.) we were able to park quite close and without charge, the first day was spent feeding expensive metres and moving on every 2 hours, to accommodate the time limits! We didn't leave the town once we had found a place because we might never have found another. I would stress however,this is not the fault of the apartment owners but Arcachon council!

    This 3☆ rated, self catering was an excellent choice, found by chance when another accommodation usually used,was fully booked. The amenities within,spotlessly clean, were every bit as good as it's more highly rated counterpart. Its central but quiet position,meant restaurants,beach,shops,walks were never more than 5 mins away. The railway is perhaps a 10 minute but flat walk. The gate is locked when the concierge is not present so everything is always secure and there is the bonus of a very sunny courtyard for relaxing outside.

    Wifi didn't work during a whole week, but owner told us that it was like an old man. Parking facilities are horrible until 17 hours, because of everybody parks here in the centre due to the lack of parkingmeters. Situation is better after 17 hours.

    Although in the midst of a lively town the apartment was very quiet. Kitchen equipment was excellent as was the bedroom. Nice place to be there for more than 2-3 days. Big French supermarket on walking distance with a lot of ready made dinners. But restaurants with different menus are very nearby.
