What makes Villa Pilat a great holiday rental
A high quality summer house, spacious and private, with a superb pool and terrace area. If you can drag yourself away from the pool and outside bar, the sandy beach of Pilat Plage is no more than 5 minutes' walk.
Two families sharing or an extended family groups or a ahndful of couples. Rentals like this don't come cheap, so sharing the cost will make it more affordable. This area of Arcachon is distinctly 'upmarket' without being pretentious.
Anything to watch out for?
Pilat Plage is a sought-after, leafy residential district of Arcachon, approx. 5 kms south of the main town, with its own stretch of beach, restaurants, etc, known for its famous sand-dune, Europe's largest - 100m high! Arcachon is an all year round sea-side town that's very popular with French families: it's a manageable size, a great choice of shops, bars, restaurants, and attractive promenade with views over to the Cap Ferret peninsula. The Bay of Arcachon is a fascinating, natural area to explore, and is one of our favourite Aquitaine destinations.
Superior west-facing summer house with heated swimming pool
A stylish villa that has undergone a complete programme of renovations to provide a very high quality holiday home, and an excellent new addition to this owner's growing portfolio of holiday rentals in the Pyla & Le Moulleau districts of Arcachon (all of which can be found on our website).
Originally constructed in the 1970s, Villa Pilat offers extremly modern, high quality and tasteful accommodation in a sought-after loaction (the Parisiens love Arcachon, particularly the districts heading south towards the Dune). Total floorspace 240m2.
The accommodation is arranged on two levels: the villa entrance is at ground level and this is where the living room is situated.
Very relaxing and private west-facing terrace surrounded by verdant, exotic shrubs. This is a super place to relax by the pool and take meals.
The pool terrace incorporates:
Arriving at the front of the house, the fragrant gardens are well-stocked and give way to the front terrace which catches the morning sun - an ideal spot for lazy breakfasts.
The property also has a garage and private parking.
5x shower rooms; 1x bathroom; 4x W.C. + 1 exterior W.C.
Stunning 10x5 heated pool, depth 0.5 - 2.0m, protected by removable cover
Pets allowed by prior arrangement
A very peaceful and leafy residential location, extremely private yet within easy reach of the local sandy beach and amenities. Pilat Plage is one of a handful of very sought-after districts within Arcachon which is very well know to well-heeled French yet virtually unknown on our side of 'le Manche'. This is a very 'well-to-do' area of chic bistrots, boutiques and sailing clubs. Hop on bikes and cycle along the water's edge all the way into Arcachon or head south to the mighty Dune du Pilat. Just inland, a short journey through the pine forests and you'll arrive at the great lake of Cazaux-Sanguinet, a beautiful spot for watersports or a day of pure relaxation.
